Nothing feels quite as romantic as a wavy look for an evening out.

Step 1: Apply heat protectant.

Detangle clean hair with a paddle brush, then prep with a heat guard, like TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray, to protect your hair while creating your waves.

Step 2: Section hair.

Part hair at the center of your crown (from ear to ear) to divide into two sections, then clip your top section away.

Step 3: Curl.

Prep hair with a mousse, such as Suave Extra Hold Shaping Mousse, to create a good base for your waves. Next, starting at the back, from mid-length to ends, curl a two-inch vertical section of hair using a hair wand. As you wrap the hair around the wand, twist the hair, hold for a few seconds and then release. When you get to the front, part hair down the center or create a deep side part for a sexier look and continue the same hair curling process you did at the back.

Step 4: Finger-comb.

To make this look flawless and natural, use your fingers to separate the curl. Gently glide your fingers through the spirals to soften up the look and pull your curls apart for a fuller effect.

A pearl accessory provides a festive final touch.

Step 5: Apply holding spray.

To finish your look, set your hair in place with a shine spray, such as Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray, to create a polished effect. Accessorize with a pearl or jeweled barrette as a gleaming, on-trend final touch, and get ready to deck the halls!
