Get the look

1/ Loose waves

To get larger, looser waves, use a 1 1/2" curling iron or your flat iron. For the best results, don't curl the hair all the way to the root, but stop roughly 2 or 3" inches from the scalp. After curling, mist with hairspray to finish.

2/ High-shine curls

Starting with dry hair, apply a straightening heat protectant evenly throughout, making sure you get even coverage. Use a 1" curling iron to curl the hair from the tops of your ears, down to the ends. After curling each piece of hair, clip it up in a loop to cool so the strands set into long lasting waves. Once all of your hair has been curled and cooled, unclip it and shake your fingers throughout.

3/ Bed head waves

Spritz dry or damp hair with a wave enhancing heat protectant, then blow-dry it in twisted sections to create natural-looking waves. Once it's completely dry, use a 1" curling iron to add more waves as needed, shake your fingers through your mane, and finish with hairspray.
