I've said it before, and I'll say it again.
I have never been a hair person.
Though my hair has always been quite minimalistic in effort, I have always envied women who are able to do the everyday wave. Effortless, not too beachy, soft looking, and feminine.
Since I am rushing about as it is in the morning, I could never imagine fussing with "a do"
Recently though I decided to give it a try.
Weekend of course. I doubt I will ever be sporting this in the office, but I will show you a hair trick I picked up when I realized after attempting the Lauren Conrad effortless waves
(which is the farthest description from the truth)
that I didn't even own hair spray!
How to hold your curls without hair spray.
Step 1: Curl your hair.
I can't even begin to tell you how to do this, I can barely do it myself but here is the video I watched a la Lauren.
Step 2: Brush your curls out. I have heard the results are better with a wide tooth comb but I used a normal brush.
Step 3 is the tip!
I always curl my hair going outwards from my face, I believe this is the general rule so after brushing them through, as they cool twist them all together in the direction they are facing and tie the ends.
Do this for as long as you are able. This is when I did my make up, had a cup of tea, and waited around.
This will make all the waves look more uniform and heading now not only in the same direction but having the same type of shape and movement.
Here is my hair when I released the hair tie.
Here is my hair about 7 hours later. Still holding the waves, I actually prefer it this way, looking more relaxed.
I have no idea why my hair looks red here, it looks no where near this color in real life.
And that's it!
I don't use hair gels or mousses in my hair, I just put on a bit of heat protectent spray and do the twist!
