When it comes to fashion, everything tends to be extreme – all patterns or completely monochrome. A dramatic night look versus natural and clean. This has sometimes been the case with hair, where trends have come and gone for very short or very long styles. These days however it’s all about moderation. Not too straight, not too curly. Wavy hairstyles are very much of the moment and luckily they can work whatever your hair type, length and colour. Here we list our favourite wavy hairstyles:
- Wavy hairstyles: beach waves
You don’t need to be in summer to pull off beach waves. It’s a relaxed and casual look, but still elegant enough to take to work or for dinner! This style looks better with long hair, especially if your fringe is parted in the middle and smaller in length. But a straight fringe can also pull off these waves on both sides. The waves are big and loose from the ears down and they can be achieved in just a few minutes with a hair straightener or wide curler plus some salt spray.
- Wavy hairstyles: tight waves
If you have long, middle parted locks, these waves will give you that mermaid look you always dreamed of. And if you have short hair, then tight waves are just perfect! Small sleep-in rollers will do the trick, but it’s much easier to use a tight curling wand plus a bit of dry shampoo on the roots for volume. Don’t forget to include your fringe in the process and to side part it for a ‘killer’ effect.
- Wavy hairstyles: messy waves
On the other end of the scale are the effortless wavy hairstyles. If your hair already has a soft movement to it and gets wavy naturally, then you just need to keep that straight-out-of-bed look with some dry shampoo in the morning and you’re good to go! But if you want to go from straight locks to messy waves, the trick is to literally not put much effort into it! Use a hair straightener or curling wand to make the waves – make them uneven and don’t cover your whole head – and apply a bit of hairspray afterwards to keep them in place.
There are so many different options when it comes to wavy hairstyles for men and women. Make sure to get professional advice too if you’re going to make any big changes, so you can pamper your hair with the best products and quality!
