No matter the weather, waves are a classic hairstyle that will always be on trend. But how do you get salon perfect waves at home? We’ve broken down exactly how to get flawless waves in just 5 easy steps.
1 Prep with a Good Blow Dry Lotion
We recommend applying CO by Andrew Collinge Blow Dry Lotion to towel dried hair https://www.andrewcollinge.com/shop/blow-dry-lotion/. The light non sticky formula will give a light hold, shine and some volume. It also has heat protection qualities which are a must when applying heat.
2 Blow Dry Hair on a Medium Setting
With your hair dryer on a medium heat, start drying the root areas first by simply using your finger tips to lift small sections of hair whilst directing the heat from the nozzle toward the roots. Work evenly around the head and once the roots are completely dry, start working on the mid-lengths and ends; again by using your fingers to lift a section of hair and taking them through the hair whilst directing the heat from the dryer. To finish the drying process, smooth out the top sections using a large round or paddle brush.
3 Tong Waves into Hair
To create the waves, take sections of hair and wrap them around a styling wand or tong. Take different size sections to keep it looking natural. As you work toward the top of the head, only wave from the mid-lengths to the ends
4 Add Some Texture, Finish and Shine
For the perfect texture, finish and shine, add a little CO by Andrew Collinge Definer (https://www.andrewcollinge.com/product/definer/) to your fingertips and rake them through the lengths of the hair. The definer will gently separate the waves, giving them a long lasting definition and shine.
5 Finish Off with Hairspray for Extra Hold
Finish off with CO by Andrew Collinge Firm Hold Hair Spray for super soft but firm waves that last https://www.andrewcollinge.com/product/firm-hold-hairspray/ . Spray almost an arm length away to set the look. If you have stubborn hair, you can spray each wave after you tong it.
