Today I am super excited to finally share, how I create my old fashion waves. I have received several requests over the past few months to share how I create this hairstyle and today is finally the day. 🙂 This look is super easy and as you may have noticed, definitely my go to hair style. For years I have been using a curling iron but recently just switched to a wand and I’m loving it! Not going to lie, wands always scared me because I could not figure out how to use one without burning myself or getting “crunchy” curls. As soon as I tried the Drybar wrap party styling wand though, I finally learned how. It’s super easy to use and creates the most gorgeous waves and curls.
HOW I CREATE MY OLD FASHION WAVES
Before I put any heat on my hair I always make sure to use a product that will protect and smooth my curly hair. My favorite product to use is the Kevin Murphy Smooth Again Anti-Frizz treatment .
As soon as my hair is dry I begin to section my hair off with my favorite Drybar clips. I then go section by section, wrapping my hair around the wand from the closet side to the handle down to the bottom with the wand pointing downwards. I leave my hair on the wand for a few seconds then pull the wand out slowly with one hand and catch my hair with the other hand gently dropping the curled piece. After I curl each piece I move them off to the side making sure not to run my fingers through or brushing them just yet.
Once I brush through my hair I gently rub a small amount of the Ouai rose oil to my hair to smooth everything out. I then brush through my hair one more time and spray my hair with the Moroccan Oil hair spray. Then voilà I am done!
This hairstyle is my favorite because, it is absolutely beautiful and chic but it is also quick and easy. I have linked all of the products I use to create this look, plus a few of my current favorite hair products for you below.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial. It as so fun to share with you. As always, if you have any questions just let me know in the comments below.
