It’s possible to make waves in your hair and modern bride of frankenstein hair with a few simple ingredients. If you’re into this look, we have all the tips and tricks here. There are no miracles to speak of, just a couple of savvy tricks that will give you the perfect wavy hairstyle in no time at all.

1. DIY mousse: 

Start by washing your hair like you normally would and towel drying it until it’s damp but not soaking wet. Separate a medium size section of hair in the front of your head, then use a comb to create tight curls spaced an inch or so apart from each other with varying sizes as needed.

Continue with another section at the crown of your head and create tight curls spaced much further apart.

Use a comb to close off the back of your hair and wrap it up, making sure that there are no gaps or strings left hanging in your face when you’re done. Once you have completed this part, you can use a small amount of mousse on a straightener and use it to give your hair body. What’s great about this is that you can also use it at home for shine as well.

2. Salad drizzle: 

Start by using a natural looking hair spray or pomade right after you towel dry your hair. This will give your hair that extra oomph and help it retain some body.

Once you have created the illusion of waves, start using volumizing products on your crown. It’s best to start with a shampoo and conditioner specifically for wavy hair as it will nourish the ends so that they don’t fall out.

Comb through the ends of your hair and make sure not to use too much product here as it can weigh down the curls. Once you have done this, you can apply a light mousse for texture or whatever other styling product you use that compliments your look best.

3. The sweet spot: 

Once you have created your waves, it’s time to find the sweet spot! This is a section at the base of your neck where the curves on one side meet smoothly into the straight part on another. Finding this spot is important because it will help you determine how much product to use and how to part your hair.

4. Parting strategies: 

The middle part is probably the most common way to part your hair but there are many different ways that you can try for yourself if you’d like. 

A side parted look works well for those who want to show off their natural shapes but still have some room left for styling products and control.

The diagonal part is a good way to show off the shape of your hair, especially if you have thick or thin hair.

5. Taking your look from day to night: 

If you want to take your look from day to night, try styling a few loose curls at the very bottom of your head with a bigger curling iron. It’s important that you don’t add too much product because it will weigh down the curls and make them look flat and greasy. You can either keep it natural looking or add a small amount of hairspray or pomade for shine if you want something that works well in both looks.

6. Volume and shine: 

If you want your look to maintain volume and shine, it’s all about the right combination of styling products. Start by spraying a medium hold mousse into your roots and letting it dry, then spritz on some hairspray to finish. 

Next, apply a medium hold gel to the curls once they are dry and use a blow dryer to finish off the look. 

7. Loose curls: 

If you want loose curls and no definite volume, start by washing your hair in the shower. If you have thick hair, try using a conditioner that has volumizing benefits as well. It’s important to let it air dry for a while before you start curling it so you have time to set the curls and start pinning them in place.

8. Side swept bangs: 

If you have straight, flat bangs and want to show off your wavy hair, pin them back once they are mostly dry. This way they will remain out of your face but still give the illusion that you want wavy hair by leaving some at the front loose to fall over your forehead. Make sure to use a braid clip underneath so that it doesn’t fall out easily.

9. Backcomb curls:

If you want your hair to be bouncy and bouncy, then you can use a brush to backcomb your curls. It’s much better to start this step once your hair is dry because this way, you won’t see any gaps where the brush grabs onto your hair.

10. Curling iron tip: 

Another way to create waves in your hair is by heating it up with a curling iron that has a ceramic tip. Start by parting and curling one section of hair at the crown and once it’s mostly dry, use the flat end of the curling iron to flip each curl into place so it looks more natural.
