How to Create a Cool Long Wavy Hairstyle
Step 1: Use a heat protection spray.
Before you start, refresh your day-old hair with some dry shampoo, like Dove Refresh+Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo. Then, prep your hair with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray, as this will help to protect your hair against heat damage.
Step 2: Wrap your hair around a curling iron.
Wrap 1-2 inch wide sections of hair around a large barrel curling wand, ensuring that you’re curling your hair towards your face. Once you’ve let the curl loose, roll it upwards towards your scalp, and then secure it to your head with a clip. Repeat this process on the rest of your mane.
Step 3: Let your curls loose.
Once you’ve allowed your curls to completely cool, let them loose. Then, using a large paddle brush, brush through your curls to help create the look of soft waves, rather than tight ringlets.
Step 4: Create your part.
Create a deep side parting on one side of your mane.
Step 5: Apply some gel to your hair.
Working on the side of your parting with the least hair, gently brush your locks back behind your ear. Then, apply some of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel over this section, before running a comb over your hair to help create a slicked-back Hollywood effect.
Step 6: Lock in your style.
Finish off your look by spraying the TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray over your mane, to help keep your waves locked in place as you party!
