Holiday Hairstyles for Long Hair: How to Create Glam Waves

Holiday hairstyles for long hair: Step out in style this season with flawless hair waves.

Step 1: Apply heat protectant.

Detangle clean hair with a paddle brush, then prep with a heat guard like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Texture Hold Level 1 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 Catwalk by TIGI Strong Hold Mousse, to create 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.

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.
