Hair you can look great in everyday: soft, flowing waves
Every girl has dreamt of having long, luscious, soft wavy hair. While braids and quirky up-do’s are the ones that stick in our minds after watching a Disney princess movie, it’s the most effortless of styles that we turn to for the everyday look. No matter what hair length, there’s nothing quite so simple, elegant and yet effective than soft waves.
There are plenty of waved hairstyles to draw inspiration from – from the perfectly polished Hollywood starlet waves to ultra-textured and grungy. If we have to narrow it down to the one that would work for an everyday look, we could sum it up somewhere in between.
Soft waves aka bed hair – incorporates the perfect tossed and tousled look. This hairstyle is very natural-looking that you can pull it off by simply sleeping with braids on and then let it down the following morning or by leaving your hair in a French twist for an hour or so and loosening it thereafter. Nothing too deliberate and totally effortless.
Side parted soft waves – nothing is more chic and glamorous than this hairstyle. For the subtle and natural wave, the waves should start at or above the brow so they fall over one eye. Simply run your fingers over your hair and take a bunch over one side. If your hair is set into waves, toss your hair gently for a bit of volume. You can also opt for a grungier look by flicking it to one side without smoothening out too much.
Polished soft waves – though this type of hairstyle requires a little bit more work, it’s a look that works great in the office and a night out in town. To achieve this in no time, part your hair in the middle and blow dry it using a brush. Then create the waves using a barrel curling wand or rollers. You might need a little bit of hair product to add shine. The finished look must be ultra sleek and impeccably waved. However, if you want a less fussy finish, comb your hair with your fingers from mid shaft and give it slight toss.
Keeping it effortless is key to beautiful, soft and flowing waves. We all wish we could wake up everyday with a glorious styled mane and this can be achieved with just a little bit of patience and practice. If you got the right hair products, tips and tricks and attitude to boot, then looking great with wavy hair should be next to nothing!
