Get the Look: Soft Waves
Whitney has incredible hair, and is known for her effortlessly undone waves. I get asked all the time how to get her look, and it’s easier to get at home than you think.
- Start with towel dried, damp hair. Prep hair by spraying it with Texturizing Salt Spray from Balmain. This will give your hair a little grit and movement that will help keep any texture you put into it.
- Rough dry hair with a blow dryer using only your fingers. If you have frizzier hair, dry hair with a flat brush.
- Once dry, take big sections of hair using a larger barreled curling iron. The trick in keeping the waves undone is to wave each section in a different direction, so they aren’t uniform or too polished. Alternate curling sections away from the face and then towards the face, keeping the ends straight. Keeping your ends straight is a great way to make sure your texture looks natural.
- After using the curling iron, you can break the waves up further by running a flat iron over random sections or just on the ends. I love the flat iron from Harry Josh Pro Tools because it heats up quickly and evenly.
- After styling, use a dime sized amount of Easy Rider from Kevin Murphy for a little separation buy running product through with fingers.
- Finish by spraying hair with Dry Texture Spray from Oribe for lots of texture and body.
If you’re intimidated by doing your own hair, the best piece of advice I can always give is don’t overthink it! Keeping hair textured and modern is done best when you don’t over think it.
