Best Wavy Hair Tutorial For Fine Hair

April 14, 2015

Somewhere between the Kim Kardashian and the Gisele is the Chrissy Teigen—the perfectly smooth, not too messy, not too glossy cool-girl waves we’ve been waiting for.

1. PREP

Work volumizing serum through damp hair and blow-dry it smooth with a nylon or boar-bristle paddle brush. If your hair is superfine, use a lightweight thickening spray (like Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Root Lift Mist) instead.

2. CURL RIGHT AND LEFT

If your hair is longer than your collarbone, pick up a one-inch iron; short-haired ladies should opt for a one-and-a-quarter-inch barrel.v

And this is really important: when you wrap a one-inch piece of hair around the barrel, start at different levels around the midlength, leaving out the first few inches from the roots and the last few inches from the ends. For example, one section you’ll start right at the middle; the next section you might start a few inches from the root.

3. SWITCH DIRECTIONS

We also recommend alternating direction with every curl. You can also switch up the size of sections of hair your grab. Make every third piece a little bit smaller or bigger than the last.

4. AVOID THE CENTRAL PART

Don’t do a clean center part; make it look a little more messy—that’s the key to making it look as natural as possible. It will also add the so much needed volume.

5. VOLUMIZE

Finish your blowout with a blast of texturizing spray (like Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease). And if you’re a few days into it, refresh the roots with dry shampoo and recurl just the roots and midlengths.

6. DEFRIZZ

It’s easy to achieve messy texture by leaving your ends as it is but we recommend taking pre-caution and applying a small amount of Aviva Anti Frizz Serum to give your ‘do a finished look.
