I get so many questions from followers & friends about how I style my hair so I thought I should share a tutorial!
Read my steps below on how I achieve my everyday bed head waves.
You will need a 1-1/4-inch curling iron, dry shampoo. hairspray, and about 10-15 minutes to complete.
Start with second-day hair - it's easier to style and will likely hold a curl longer. Add dry shampoo to the roots and work throughout by massaging scalp with fingertips. I like Dove's Dry Shampoo, which volumizes and doesn't leave that white residue.
Wrap 1-inch sections of hair around a 1-1/4-inch curling iron. Curl it away from your face, and hold for about 30-50 seconds - my hair needs closer to 50 seconds since it doesn't hold a curl well. I took the clamp off of my curling iron to use it more like a wand (see the quick tutorial of that here!) I do the left side first, starting with the piece closest to my face and working my way to the back. Leave the bottom 1/2 inch of hair out to avoid damaging and causing split-ends.
Spray the left side of curled hair with a medium to strong hold hairspray, depending on your hair type/preference. I've been using Pantene Anti-Humidity hairspray since moving back Florida! Then repeat Steps 2 and 3 on the right side of your hair.
Next, I run my fingers through the curls to loosen them up a bit.
Lastly, I flip my hair upside and shake it by running my fingers through my roots to give it some volume. Flip hair back up for perfectly undone bed head waves.
