Hair Wave . . . Tips for every hair type
So what if summer is over? Celebrity hairdresser Theresa Marra Siliceo, whose resume includes As the World Turns and Law & Order: SVU, reports that if your hair has a natural bend, making hair waves in winter’s drier conditions is totally do-able!
Begin by combing through freshly shampooed hair with a wide-tooth rubber comb. Then gently blot it dry with a towel. (Rubbing hair will lead to frizz.) Here’s how to get waves, depending on your hair type:
- Fine Hair ~~ Apply Bedhead Superstar Thickening Spray to damp hair. Then take 1″ sections and clip them into pin curls with small clips. Dry completely with a hair dryer or hood dryer, says Siliceo. Remove clips, and finger-comb for a natural-looking finish.
- Medium Textured Hair ~~ Let hair dry naturally, or blow it out over a round brush. Wrap 2″ sections around a vertically held, medium-sized curling iron to achieve full, wavy hair style.
- Thick Hair ~~ Apply Bedhead Curls Rock Leave-In Moisturizer to damp hair. Spray on their Curls Rock Booster, towel dry hair a second time and place large clips at the roots for lift. Then while scrunching dry hair with a diffuser on a low setting, re-mist with Curl Booster, squeeze sections, and remove clips.
