So you want a specific type of curl or wave, but can’t seem to get it quite right? Well, it might be the styling tools you’re using. Here’s what you’ll need to create the most popular styles of 2017…
Soft waves are most certainly the look of the moment. However, soft waves might prove to be more difficult to create than you might’ve anticipated. A traditional barrel wand is likely to give you tight, ringlet curls – ghd curve classic wave wand has an flatter oval shape to it, allowing you to style looser, less defined waves.
Spritz waved hair with SACHAJUAN Ocean Mist and scrunch waves for a more textured, natural-looking finish. Waves can drop out quite easily is some hair types, so finishing with a hold spray is usually a good idea.
More defined curls in shorter hair are also popular right now, especially to frame the face. Get this look with the Cloud Nine C9 Wand, a conical curling wand that allows you to style your curls how you want them.
Adjustable heat settings allows you to select the right temperature for your hair type, and the conical shape of the wand creates defined curls that can be brushed through to finish with softer waves.
To maintain the shape of the curl, as it slides off the barrel of the wand, allow it to coil in your palm and cool for a moment before allowing it to drop.
Another super popular look in 2017 is texture. Depending on your hair type, texture can be difficult to get right. Styling products will come in handy with this look.
Section large portions of hair and use Cloud Nine C9 Waving Wand. Only allow the hair to be wrapped around the barrel for around around 3 seconds before letting it drop. Allow hair to cool before brushing through the waves. For added texture, spray Shu Uemura Liquid Fabric Mineral Texture Spray over the hair before drying and styling.
The ultimate sleek and chic style for more formal events – Hollywood Waves. Creating this look is a two-step process. Firstly, curl hair with BaByliss PRO Glitz Titanium Ceramic Conical Wand in small sections. Allow to cool before progressing to the next step.
Use a large paddle brush to gently brush through the curls to a softer, defined wave. Hollywood Curls are usually very sleek, so finishing off the look with a finishing product like ghd Smooth & Finish Serum, and hairspray is essential.
