Hollywood Waves Hair Tutorial

Hollywood Waves Hair Tutorial

Create these Hollywood waves to add an extra level of elegance to your statement look. These deep, sculpted waves, with a glossy flawless shine are the epitome of glamourous – (we mean, if done well, this style is guaranteed to give you amazing hair at every special occasion). Despite being the most sculpted wavy hairstyle, Hollywood waves are actually one the easiest curly hairstyles to achieve. Read our handy tutorial on how to achieve these sumptuous glamour waves.

1. Prepare your hair

It doesn’t matter if your hair is newly washed or if you are rocking second-day hair with a bit of dry shampoo in, just make sure your hair is frizz free. If you are using human hair extensions, clip them in before getting started. As you are going to be using heated tools, you can use heat protection spray. If you have a bit more time to prepare your hair, starting by working some serum into your ends. Leave on for about 10 minutes for your hair serum to soak in, particularly at the ends of your hair. Letting your serum soak a bit will allow your ends to absorb the moisture before you add heat protecting spray and turn on your heated tool.

2. Time to curl

To achieve this look we are going to use a technique called horizontal curling. Start by separating a two-inch wide row of hair at the nape of your neck. Put the rest of your hair up and brush your row thoroughly. Lightly back comb at the roots for a bit of volume. Hold your row of hair out and place your curling tong at the roots of your hair wrap your hair inwards around it, but still hold it at that horizontal position. Leave your hair on the heating tool for 30 seconds. If your hair is super straight, you may hold the tong for bit longer but. The longer you leave the curling tong in your hair, the more define your waves, however, be mindful too much heat on your hair can damage it.

After taking the tong is out, let your hair cool for five to ten minutes. Move onto your next two-inch row and then the rest of your hair, making sure you are tonging it all in the same direction and letting it cool before adding hairspray to set.

3. Final styling for Hollywood waves hair

Once all of your curls have cooled, they will look like tight, gorgeous ringlets at this point. Make sure you have a slight side part to give your hair more shape. Brush with a tangle teezer/ detangling brush.

Use a pin curl to add some defined waves near your face. Once your hair is in the position you want and you have got a lovely s shape either side of your face with your pins add some more hairspray and wait ten minutes with your curl pins in. This will give your hair enough time set in the s shape. Take your curling pins out and you are red carpet ready. That’s that how you do Hollywood waves!
