Great news, Ladies, Long and Wavy hair style is The Hair Style of 2009!
What is so great about? Well, first of all, it's a low maintenance do, that looks very fashionable and feminine when done the right way. And secondly, this fabulous Long and Wavy hair trend can be easily created at home!
** **The medium and long length are preferable for the Long and Wavy style, but if you recently cut your hair and it's of a shorter length, the technics for getting the natural wave described below, will work for you too!
The one and only thing to keep in mind is no matter what, your waves should look as natural as possible!
Either you have heavy layered locks or a full lenght a-la Demie Moore (I so envy her right now), your hair will look amazing with the Long and Wavy do. Just make sure your new wavy hair looks as effortlessly fabulous, as possible, as if you just happened to have fabulous hair...
1. The Non-Damaging Technique:
Before bedtime, mist just-washed, damp hair with a leave-in conditioner and a volume-boosting aerosol spray (an aerosol spray will dry soft, and won't leave hair hard and crunchy). Then twirl one-inch sections of hair into spiral braids and let them dry overnight.
I personally love this technique for two reasons: it does not damage your hair and it's extremely easy. All you need is 2 minutes of your time (if even that) before you go to bed. The only thing to remember is that the more braids you have, the smaller will be the wave, so, 1 or 2 would be perfect for that natural fashionable runway look.
2. The Risky Technique:
Short on time? Here's how Fashion Week tress masters create the look in a crunch: Wrap one-inch sections of hair around a medium flatiron, alternating the direction each spiral. “You're just kind of haphazardly wrapping pieces and dropping them,” says Harry Josh, a hairstylist and spokesperson for John Frieda. “When you shake them out you'll get a really nice, loose, ropy wave and it'll hold all day.”
This technique gives you more control over your waves and you can easily create a very fine do within 10 minutes, but please don't forget to use anti-heat products to protect your healthy shiny traces.
No matter what they say, anything hair tools with heat are bad for your hair. And the more you use them, the more weakened it becomes. It's just the matter of time when the damage becomes obvious.
