Styles for wavy hair that will make your heart (and hair) sing. 

Here at All Things Hair we love celebrating different hair textures and colors! We’d hate to think that you didn’t think your natural texture is as awesome as it is. So, if you are looking for elegant styles for wavy hair, we’ve got you covered. The great thing about styles for wavy hair is that they often work great on hair that’s on the straighter side and on the curly side, too. Read on to see six of our favorite elegant styles for wavy hair.

Styles For Wavy Hair: 6 Ways To Show Off Your Curves

If you’re wearing your hair down, jazz it up with extra shine.

1. Extra Shiny Hair

There is no reason that wearing your hair down with your natural wavy texture can’t be a style! We love the look of wavy hair all on it’s own. To give your hair an extra boost, make sure that it’s super shiny. You can do a coconut oil hair mask the day before for a boost of moisture and shine. You can also add in some shine by using the Bed Head By TIGI Blow-Out Golden Illuminating Shine Cream.

2. Face Framing Tendrils

If you’re going for an elegant updo (good plan!) soften the look with some face framing tendrils. The little layers by your face will show off your waves without taking away from a sleek french twist. Of course, face framing sections of hair can be added to any number of styles for wavy hair. Anything from a bouncy ponytail to an intricate braided style will work.

3. Statement Hair Accessory

Go from an average hair day to an elegant style with the addition of a hair accessory. You can go bold, like with this grecian crown style headband, or you could try out a vintage clip instead. Just make sure that your hair compliments the accessory you pick. We love this metallic headband with hair worn straight down because it has so much detail.

4. Sleek Side Ponytail

Amp up your side pony by making it as sleek as possible. It takes an average whipped together in one minute ponytail to a beautiful, elegant style. To get super sleek hair, use some of the TRESemmé Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum on wet hair before gently blowdrying your hair with a diffuser. It will take care of any potential frizz, while adding shine as it works to make your hair super soft. Then, style your side pony! Extra points if you cover your hair tie with a section of hair.

5. Flower Braid Half Updo

We love this braided style! It’s so romantic yet subtle. To create the flower effect, all you will need to do is create a three-strand braid. Loosening up the braid with your fingers will help to create a fuller flower. Check out our step by step tutorial of this flower braid half updo.

6. Side Braided Style

Focus the attention on just one side of your hair with a stand out braid! We love using different braid styles, like the four-strand braid or a fishtail braid, to create fun hairstyling effects. This particular style uses the pull through braid technique for a unique look and truly head-turning look. When you complete a more complicated braid, be sure to set your style with some hairspray, like the Dove Style+Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray to lock in your braid style without making it stiff.
