Happy New Year!
I love the energy associated with this time of year. One thing I love is to try new hairstyles, so today I’m showing you how to create retro-inspired waves! This is such a classy style that is perfect for adding a little bit extra to any look. Maybe you will want to add it to your new year!
I used a one-inch curling iron to create my waves. You could also use a wand if you wanted. The video below will take you through step by step. It is important that you pin the curls and let them set before you brush them out to make the waves! Be gentle when brushing them. The curl pattern should naturally start to show up. Using flat clips will also make a big difference in your waves. They will help shape and flatten the curls into the correct form. Lightly hairspray before you remove the clips.
Once you have created the waves, you have a lot of options! I show three of my favorites in the video below, but play around and put your own spin on it! I show an option for wearing the rest of your hair down and curled, in a bun, and also in a braid. These retro-inspired waves work for any length of hair. If you have short hair, mainly focus on the front wave section, and the rest can be worn down.
I hope you enjoy experimenting with these retro-inspired waves! As always, I’d love to see your styles if you try them. So send us your pics, or tag us so we can see! Adding some new hairstyles to your routine may add some fun to your new year. I wish you all the best in 2017 and hope it is your best year yet! XO,
