How I Get My Everyday Soft Waves

Hello loves! I hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend.  Over the last couple of months I've switched up how I've been styling my hair.  Instead of big voluminous curls, I've opted for more soft waves. In today's post I'm going to walk you through my process and share what products I use to achieve the look. I attached a short video of the process below for all of you visual learners out there (like me!). 

To protect my hair from the heat, I use the L'Oreal Elnett Heat Protect Sleek Spray. I spray this throughout my hair then brush it out to distributed the product. I love the fine mist of this product because it doesn't weigh down my hair, but it still protects. I then separate my hair into sections for the curling process.


I use the NuMe 1" Magic Curling Wand  to achieve the perfect soft waves. I go layer-by-layer and curl 1-inch sections away from my face. This curling iron is extremely versatile: you can get super tight curls or loose waves. I hold the hair on the wand for only about 5 seconds to achieve the loose wave look. The key to getting a wave as opposed to a curl is to hold out the ends of the hair instead of wrapping them around the wand. 


After I've curled all of my hair I spray the DryBar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Spray throughout my hair. I then flip my head over and run my fingers through the waves to shake them out. Flipping my head over also helps to add volume.


To further smooth out the waves I apply the Verb Ghost Oil. This lightweight oil tames my frizz and gives my waves a gorgeous shine.


Once I'm content with the finger-brushed waves, I finish off the look with my favorite hairspray: L'Oreal Elnett. I love this hairspray because it locks in my waves without making my hair feel dry and crunchy. 



I hope you found this tutorial helpful! You can shop all of the products I used by clicking on the photos below, or the pink links. Let me know what other beauty tutorials you would love to see next.
