Getting that perfectly imperfect, wavy texture actually takes a little more know how than you might imagine. Here are the three secrets to acing them.

First, grab a 1 inch section of hair. Mist your hair with a heat protectant and brush it out to prevent crunchiness. Hold a wand downward and wrap the piece of hair around the barrel. Leave an inch out at the ends for a modern finish. Once the hair heats up, gently tug the ends to relax the wave. Continue with the remaining sections of hair. When you are finished, finger comb a finishing cream through the hair. This will help to break up the waves and smooth any flyaways. This technique will add gorgeous body and depth to your hair.
