Medium Wavy Hairstyles
 

Medium length wavy hair is one of the hottest looks right now and and can be spotted on celebrities all over Hollywood.  Wavy hair is defiantly a sexy and flirty look that adds a soft but textured twist to different hairstyles.  This is one of my favorite  styles of all time and I am excited to wear my hair like this for my Holiday events!

Many women are blessed with naturally wavy hair, making it extremely easy to create these styles because the hair already wants to wave. On the other hand, if you with straight hair, no worries, there are so many products and tools that can help you to achieve this style as well.
 
 
 

Adding Waves to Straight Hair

  1. Shampoo, condition & towel dry hair
  2. Apply a medium hold gel or styling mousse
  3. While blow drying your hair on a low setting, scrunch the hair with your hand or use a diffuser. Continue until completely dry to achieve texture and wave. Another option is use a waver iron
  4. You can finish by adding targeted waves with a 1-1/2″-2″ curling iron. Make sure to quickly and loosely clamp and wrap the hair or it will curl as opposed to wave.
