Taking Care of Your Wavy Hair

If you have naturally wavy hair, you need to start using a shampoo made for your hair type and texture. Find a conditioner that matches your hair type as well and consider using a leave-in conditioner. If you have finer wavy hair that tends to look flat, use a volumizing spray at the top. If you are dealing with dry or fragile hair, look for hydrating creams or hair masks. Dry hair oil can also do wonders if you want to get rid of frizz.

Master the Beach Wave

The beach wave is the ultimate wavy hairstyle. If you already have wavy hair, you won’t have much to do to achieve the perfect beach wave. If you do not have naturally wavy or curly hair, you will need to use a curling iron to get some waves. This is a fun and versatile style that looks good with layers, but you can create a great beach wave even if you don’t have any layers.

Consider A Shorter Cut

A shorter style will look great with your wavy hair. You can easily create the perfect bedhead look whenever you don’t feel like spending a lot of time on styling your hair. A short shaggy bob will look very modern and elegant. A short style will add some volume to your hair and require less maintenance for your wavy hair!

Add Some Color

Wavy hair can look really fun with a splash of color. There are different ways to make your hairstyle more colorful. You can opt for a balayage or ombre to add some color to the lower portions of the waves, or color different strands. This second look is particularly interesting because using several hues will draw attention to how the waves naturally intertwined with each other.

Create A Stylish Look with A Side-Braid

Side-braids are surprisingly easy to do. This is a quick and easy way to style your hair when you can’t get your curls and waves to look just right. You can also create a smaller side-braids and do the rest of your hair up in a ponytail. This simple but classy look will allow you to display the natural waves in your hair and the braid will add some structure.

Use A Diffuser with Your Blow Dryer

The great thing about waves is that your hair naturally has volume. You can emphasize this with a blow dryer and effortlessly create a glamorous wavy women hairstyle. Attach a diffuser to your blow dryer. This will allow your hair to dry without losing its natural shape. You can then wear your hair down, part it on the side or create a simple twist in the back.
