The best hair technique to try at home


Looking for an effortless hair style that you can achieve at home? Then this is the solution you’ve been searching for…

Heatless Waves.

There’s nothing quite like effortless waves. They can be chic, girly and cool depending on your mood and I love that.

If you’re trying to steer clear of applying heat to the hair, heatless waves are an ideal style to go for. Wash your hair as usual, I’d recommend using my Big It Up! Shampoo and Conditioner to add some volume. Towel dry and spritz the mid-lengths and ends of your hair liberally with the Super Smooth Keratin Protein Spray. This will strengthen the individual hair strands whilst also smoothing out frizz. Comb through and leave hair to dry 80-90%.

Select hair from the front, root and twist back, taking bigger sections as you go. Continue this process behind the ear until you reach the nape of your neck and pin using a kirby grip. Twist the remaining length of hair and curl into a small, low bun and secure using kirby grips or a scrunchie. Repeat on the opposite side. Note that the smaller the sections of hair and the tighter the twist, the smaller and closer the wave will be. Those with fine hair should use thickening products like my Big It Up! Volume Boosting Cream to towel dried hair first, in order to achieve a bouncier wave.

Sleep in the style or leave in until completely dry. Gently remove anything securing the style and use your fingers to separate the waves. For a beachy look, spray with my Cocolicious Texture Spray to add grit and an ocean vibe. If you prefer something a little more polished, comb through the waves to create a uniform ‘Hollywood Wave’ and spritz with my Glam Shine Glossing Spray to achieve a sleek, chic finish with boosted shine.
