A wet hair look is so popular at the moment thanks to it’s edgy, flattering style. One way to get Miley’s too cool for school wet look waves is to wash and condition hair, then braid into equal sections while still wet and sleep in this style. The smaller the braid and section, the tighter the wave. Finish by spritzing on a sea salt spray for extra curl.
Another option for a looser wave is to comb hair with fingers, then twist into a bun, securing with a hair tie and leave in while you sleep. In the morning, gently take hair out and spritz with more sea salt spray or use fingers to separate with a pomade or gel. This style looks tricky, but is so easy you can do at home and will have you standing out from the crowd at your next event.
There’s nothing quite as sexy and alluring as loose waves that look like you’ve done nothing but fall out of bed and not tried at all. Mila Kunis nails this trend with a middle parted, loose brushed out wave look. Check out our How-To guide for achieving a messy wave. Don’t forget to work in sections no bigger than 3cm.
Undone waves are so effortless, no-one will even know that it’s not your natural hair. This look is perfect for anything, whether it be work, a night out with your besties or as a wedding guest. Watch our guide to discover the tricks in achieving those effortlessly undone waves that celebs tend to favour.

Instead of waiting for those beach days to roll around, why not do as Julianne Hough has here and opt for a messy beach bob? This look suits all hair lengths and gives any outfit a modern feel with its unkempt vibe. Use the Straight & Curl Brilliance in even sections through your hair. When cool, comb through and roughen up with fingers to loosen to the desired wave finish, then spray with sea salt spray and scrunch in. This will have you looking like a beautiful beach babe, without anyone having to know you created the waves yourself.
We love wavy hairstyles so much we’ve put together our top 5 wavy styles that we’re sure you’ll love as well!
1. Side Swept Soft Waves

If you work in a corporate environment, take your inspo from the lovely Samantha Armytage. Ask your hairdresser for a lob (long bob) and side swept fringe. To style, arm yourself with a round brush and the Frizz Defense AC Salon Dryer, brushing up and underneath the hair in horizontal sections for extra volume. On the ends, use the round brush to wind up to mid lengths of hair, dry and then blast with the cold shot. Complete with a side part and hairspray for extra hold, sweeping the fringe seductively over one eye.
If your workplace is less newsreader and more fashion in dress code, this wavy upstyle is perfect. Do as Millie Bobby Brown does and blow dry hair smooth with the Frizz Defense AC Salon Dryer, then brush hair up into a high bun, being sure to leave a long fringe with two tendrils out to frame your face. Wave those pieces with the Keratin Protect Undone Waves for a soft finish, then add a modern element by leaving the ends of the bun untucked for this fashionable look.

If you have long, chocolate coloured thick locks like Angelina Jolie, count yourself very blessed by the hair gods. To get the look here, try using the Frizz Defense Rotating Hot Air Styler down the mid lengths to ends of your hair for extra wave. Loosen lightly with fingers through the ends, and secure the mid top section back with some bobby pins. Watch our tutorial below to find out how to use this easy, fast tool!

This glam look is perfect for the races or another event when you want smooth, defined waves. Part hair into a deep side part, then get your hot little hands on the Keratin Protect Undone Waves and work in small sections down the hair. When done, use a paddle brush and brush the curls out into mermaid like waves and accessorise. Spritz with shine spray for that extra glow.
