Make sure your hair cut is rightful
A great hair cut – the foundation to any great hair style – waves or no waves. Normally, fine hair can achieve a significant amount of texture and perceived volume from the cut. Medium lengths are ideal for fine hair, and some variations of the lob are what we can consider. It hits just above the collarbone in the front and may be a bit shorter in the back to lend some extra volume and oomph. It’s no wonder the style is so popular, as it’s universally flattering and can be worn straight or wavy hair.
For the long-haired gals with fine hair, it’s best to add some layers to your locks; they will lend movement and dimension, in other words, it can increase more volume. The layers also make it easier to achieve the desired wave factor.
- Using condition carefully
Use the right conditioner
It is necessary to own a volumizing conditioner, but make sure to use it moderately. For wavy hair, conditioner can make it extra silky but also extra slippery, creating nearly-impossible conditions for waves to take hold.
- Drying hair strategically
Drying your hair upside down
You can get your waves off to the right start simply by drying your wavy hair strategically meaning, in other words, upside down. Flipping your hair over is a tried and true way to add some oomph to those roots, boost the volume and set up a good foundation for the impending waves you want to create.
- Make mousse your new best friend
Mousse is helpful
It is necessary to make friends with this hair styling product immediately – it’s a must-have for waves, especially if you have wavy hair. Not only does applying a volumizing mousse to damp hair give extra body and sheen, but the best formulas also provide a featherweight hold that’s effective without being crunchy or heavy. And rememer not to skimp on the product, either. A baseball-size mound of foamy mousse is generally the right amount for medium and long hair. You want your strands to be pretty liberally saturated.
- Give your hair some braids and beauty sleep
Try braids for waves
To style wavy hair, you can utilize several methods and one of those ways happens while you sleep. Bed is a good place to start if you’re trying out waves for the first time, as it’s easy and generally works like a charm – even with thin, fine hair. Simply drying your hair (upside down, of course) until it’s about 75% dry. Then, making pigtails on each side of your head and braiding each side. Pulling apart the braid slightly to avoid a crimped effect, then going to bed. When you wake up in the morning, undo the braids and raking through them a bit with your fingers. You will see incredible result – instant waves!
