How to Style Long, Wavy Hair

Long, wavy hair is an enviable feature. However, making your hairstyle look effortless without pouring hours of work into it is a difficult feat. Fortunately, we’ve got the inside info on how to style long, wavy hair — without the hours of effort.

First, use a leave-in conditioner on damp hair, concentrating on the roots to prevent frizz and damage from heat styling tools. Moderately spray a gel in your hair to give your waves some shape and hold, and dry your hair with a diffuser on low heat. Shape curls with your fingers for a tousled, beachy look.

For bigger, more defined waves, wrap dry hair up in hot rollers away from the face. Allow them to cool for at least ten minutes, so go ahead and finish your makeup while they set. After releasing your hair, run some shine serum through it to loosen the waves. We like these hair product combinations for optimum style.

With these tips, you’ll be sure to look like you just stepped off the beach or into a resort, no matter what time of year it is. For more info on how to style long, wavy hair, check out the 9 Best Beachy Hairstyles.
