How To Make Straight Hair Wavy
How To Make Straight Hair Wavy
Wavy hair looks really nice, stylish and carefree. Make sure you do your straight hair to wavy…properly.
Okay, I'm going to make straight hair wavy. Now, you need to section the hair off as if you were straightening or curling. Get most of the hair away, so section off hair, get rid of that hair - you don't have to worry about that at the moment.
Section the hair down to the middle and when you are taking the section to wave, take a section about this size to begin with, which is about an inch wide and about two, three inches across. Split the hair in half, secret with that, doing anything like this, is not to take too much hair at one time to confuse yourself. So once you've taken this amount of hair, you need to comb it all through to make sure there are no knots or tangles in there.
That's really important because if you get halfway through, putting the wave in, it's too late. So, comb it all through. Now, again, when you're putting any kind of heat onto the hair, it's always good to protect the hair first, a little bit of hairspray does the job of protecting the hair and also really helping to secure the wave after you've put it in.
You know, waves and curls will always drop a little bit depending on the environment that it's in, if it's cold weather outside or raining, moisture or anything like that. So after you've taken this section, most important thing is a large pair of tongs. It's quite important that they are this sort of size because you'll get a much kind of looser way as opposed to a curl.
So when you're taking this section, then split in half, keep pulling the hair through and make sure there are no knots and tangles. Take the tongs halfway down the hair, wrapping the hair around to hold it in and then role the last section up. Don't get it too close to the head because you'll burn the client's head that you can feel with your finger, about a finger's width away from the scalp and hold.
It's got to be quite tight, the tension, and then release slowly and then release like so. Keeping the wave in there and with a tiny little bit of cream or serum but just a tiny bit like that, around the wave and at this point, you can also, perhaps you use a little bit of hairspray again, just a touch, just to hold that in and you have a wave. I'll just repeat that process.
So take this section, that's left here and comb through so there's no knots or waves or lots of tangles. Tiny light bit of hairspray through the top and just little bit on the underneath, again, if the hair is layered, it's quite important to do that because the hairspray can sort of act as a very light sort of glue action where you can get all the hair to all stay in one direction which is very important. And next the tong, a couple of inches away from the root and then into to the end to make sure the very end is tucked right in there and then fold around.
Again, about a finger's width away from the scalp, the tong is hot and so not to burn the client's head and then release like so. Follow the curl, let the curl sit in a natural way and then what you may need to do again, just a tiny little bit more hairspray to show that. A full head of that will show you a nice soft wavy look on straight hair. .
