Loose Waves and Bangs are a Match Made in Heaven

The sultry style of your dreams.

If you’re looking for a sultry new style this season but don’t want to commit to lots of styling and maintenance, then loose waves and bangs are the way to go. We love this pairing because it’s incredibly easy to create either by air drying with some product or quickly running a hot tool through for a messy style that takes less than five minutes. Because this style is about looking effortlessly cool, you don’t have to worry about over-styling your bangs to get them perfect, the grungier the better.

Check out these three different finishes you can create with a loose waves and bangs style!

Loose Waves and Bangs is Our Fave Wearable Runway Trend

If you are already rockin’ curly hair then amplify that curl and keep your bangs curly, too! This style is textured and looks naturally beautiful since it’s created by letting your strands air dry. While your hair is damp, add some mousse to your style to hydrate your curls and give them a soft definition. This style is still technically loose waves and bangs look because you don’t want to over-mousse and scrunch your curls, you just want to guide them to a light, bouncy finish. We love Dove Curls Defining Mousse to give your hair a lightweight and curly look.

This spin on loose waves and bangs is all about volume. Use your curling device of choice (either rollers or curling iron) and focus on creating very soft waves. You barely have to wrap your strands around the barrel and your wait time doesn’t have to be long. Once you’ve got the loose waves you desire, go in with a generous amount of  TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 to amp up the volume of your style. Make sure to spray at the root and in different sections to create a lot of body.

We love how 70s-inspired this version of loose waves and bangs is and how easy it is to recreate! Before blowdrying, spray your strands with a heat protectant (try Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist). Use a round brush to create loose waves at the front of your style. Try rolling the brush in a few different directions to make the style more natural-looking and less constructed.
