Smart Wavy Hair Styles Strategies

What Celebrities Know about Wavy Hair Styles That You May Not Have Considered

Anyone else bored with long wavy hair styles? Hair styles on the runways lately are so predictable . . . yawn. No, I don’t watch the shows, but it appears long, wavy hair is still THE hair style trend we’ll be seeing most of this summer. I’m getting just a wee-bit bored writing about wavy hair styles. . . anyone else getting bored? I mean, do you really need any more instructions on how to get “beachy waves?”

I’m not saying I don’t like the look, its nice, it’s sexy and for the average wavy hair beauties among us, it’s relatively easy to style. And the long layered hair style makes for quick and easy updos, braids, ponytails, chignons, buns and twists, so what’s not to like there? But, for some it’s not so easy to keep a beachy wave . . . wavy, especially in the heat of summer.

Even though I am becoming a bit jaded with the look, these were my favorite wavy hair styles that I’ve seen lately; Lily Collins, Selena Gomez, Nikki Reed, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and Leighton Meester.

Can you wear the style? Know your hair type

If you have curly, straight thick or fine hair, you will have trouble maintaining this wavy hair look, especially in the heat of the summer months. You may be able to wrestle your hair into the hair style for a moment or two, but it won’t last, not if you fall into one of these hair style types. So why waste the time and effort and do more heat damage to hair in the process when it won’t last?

This is why you hear hairdressers saying, in summer especially, it’s best to go with a hair style that works with your hair type, rather than trying to fight it into submission. (Did you notice many of the wavy hair styles became a bit more like crested and fallen waves by the end of the Awards Show? And they have pros styling their hair using the best hair products and all the tricks of the trade!

Soft Hair Waves

Soft Hair Waves, How To . . .

Pretty, feminine looks are popping up all over the fashion runways Tabatha Coffey JOICO Artistic Team member and owner of Industrie Hair Gurus in Ridgewood, NJ, gave us the scoop on making waves the perfect style to flatter those floaty dresses and romantic skirts.

“I think we will definitely see more hair waves, movement and texture in hair styles. Sculpted soft hair waves give hair such a sexy, feminine look that everybody will be wearing them in different variations to suit their lifestyle’ says Coffey.

  • Soft Waves Tip #1: Begin with dry hair and part it where it naturally falls.
  • Soft Waves Tip #2: Taking small (1-inch or less) sections. mist lightly with a working hair spray and roll hair around a curling iron. The smaller the iron, the tighter the curl.
  • Soft Waves Tip #3: Gently remove each tendril from the wand and secure with a pincurl clip.
  • Soft Waves Tip#4: After tresses have cooled completely, release the clips and use a bristle hair brush to softly comb and define each wave. (For a stronger wave, leave the pincurls in place for more time.)
