From soft waves to perfectly undone hair – this season is all about effortless summer style.
Soft waves always make an appearance during summer, but this time, they’re likely to hang around for the rest of 2020.
Not only are soft waves easier to achieve and maintain than tight curls or dead-straight locks in the heat of summer, they’re a gorgeous goddess-like look which suits any hair length and pairs well with almost any outfit.
Achieve the look with your curling wand or straightening iron and curl as you normally would.
The key to getting those loose waves is to brush out the hair quickly after curling. If your curls are still too tight, add a little heat from your hairdryer to loosen them up.
Finish off with a light spray of hairspray and a final brush-through (avoid a lacquer, which will make the hair crunchy and brittle-feeling). Be sure to prep well with a heat protectant and add in a little hair oil to the ends for extra moisture.
Finally, keep those luscious locks out of your face this summer with an easy half-up half-down bun do. Paired with your soft waves, this look aligns perfectly with the season’s ‘effortless glamour’ trends. It’s making its way through the Instagram accounts of all your favourite hairstylists and is predicted by Cosmopolitan beauty experts to be one of the number one hairstyles for 2020, alongside bouncy ponytails and messy double buns.
To get the look, style your loose waves and then secure the top section of hair into a small hairband. Then, simply twist the hair around the band to cover it, before pulling out a little of the hair here and there to achieve an un-done and slightly messy look. Set with hairspray and a few bobby pins and you’re ready to go!
