5 Tricks For Messy-Pretty Waves

by The Zoe Report

Achieving gorgeous, not-too-perfect waves just got easier thanks to these five tricks we picked up backstage at the spring 2014 shows. From heat styling techniques to product recommendations, these easy ideas will transform your get-ready routine.

Blow Dry Hair Only Part Of The Way

At Bottega Veneta, Redken’s Guido Palau blow-dried model’s hair only 80% of the way in order to bring out their natural waves while keeping volume and texture under control.

Add Natural Oil To Too-Perfect Waves

To prevent the curling iron-made waves at Gucci from looking too perfect Kerastase expert Luigi Murenu worked hair oil through strands for a glossy, day-after look.

Flat Iron Only The Under Layers of Hair

Hairstylist Paul Hanlon flat ironed hair around the ears and nape of the neck at Proenza Schouler in order to eliminate volume from naturally dried waves.

Use Dry Shampoo To Build Texture

Kerastase’s Odile Gilbert spritzed dry shampoo through curling iron-made waves at Thakoon in order to create a tacky, matte texture that looked slightly slept-in.

Mist Hair With Water Before Finishing

At Balmain, hairstylist Sam McKnight misted model’s strands with water in order to bring out their natural hair texture before they walked down the runway.
