Perfect Waves Tutorial

I have had so many wonderful compliments from my lovely readers and friends about my hair since I had the ombré done, and I wanted to share a tutorial on my favourite look at the moment and how to create the perfect waves.

I start by tying half of my hair up in a little topknot so I look fab (also because my hair is super thick) but if your hair is finer then feel free to skip this step.
Next, I coat my hair in heat protector and I make sure it is completely brushed through and knot-free.
Then it’s on to the curling…
(P.S I don't mean to look miserable I'm trying so hard not to burn myself like usual!)
The curler I am using to do this stage is the Babyliss Volume Waves Curler. It has nice wide barrel that makes nice big bouncy curls, but it does also have that really annoying clamp bit which has like a crimping effect if you use it, which I try not to. I like to take the sections around 1-2 inches wide but not particularly thick in terms of how much hair I actually wrap around the curler.

Once the bottom half of my hair is all curled, I spray with the Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray and then carefully push them to my back to COOL DOWN. This bit is so important!

If the curls don’t cool they won’t set enough to be able to wave them without it just coming out.

I then repeat the curling method on the top half, but adding more curls towards my face to give added volume.
This is a bit variable I’ve found too, if you do the curl all the way up to the root you’ll get bouncier waves, and the further away from the root it’ll be more vintage-style waves.
Hairspray, then leave to cool!

While they’re cooling off, I like to do something really productive, like put on false lashes ooorrrr paint my nails… yep, real productive.

Onto the final two steps, it’s now the daunting yet thankfully quick bit.
I get my hairbrush again and just drag it through my hair ONCE. It get’s rid of any crispiness from the excessive hairspray and also loosens the curls into perfect waves.
This is so daunting if you’ve never done it before and have taken a long time to do the curling, and trust me if you’ve let your curls set and used hairspray they should bounce back!
To finish off I do a light spray once more, but keep it very light this time.

And there you go pal’s, that’s how I get my waves!
I have to say they last a lot longer now I have bleached hair, but also since I’ve started using the Got2b Hairspray, so it’s one I’d definitely recommend to try.
