Salon Insider: California Summer Waves All Year Long

Blake Lively wavy hairIn the salon, we always get asked “How do I replicate your salon tricks and style at home?”  The most popular question: “How do I get that great California wavy look throughout the year?  And so here it is!

Get a large barrel curling iron and when your hair is dry, take large sections and wrap them around the outer barrel of the iron, leaving the ends off the iron.  Why this way?  Well, many women have a ton of problems with the spring device on curling irons which can cause creases in the hair.  The hair, when heated, will mold to the shape, so you do not need to use the spring device on the curling iron.  All you need to do is wrap the hair around the heated barrel to achieve the look, alternating whether you wrap the hair toward or away from the face. 

Leaving the ends out is the key to keeping it natural like your hair, versus a really perfect curling pattern in the hair.  And it is easy since you are taking large sections, leaving each wrapped around the iron less than 30 seconds.  It takes 5 to 10 minutes max and gives you California summer beach hair all year-round!
