Happy Humpday y’all! For some reason this week has seemed forever long, so hallelujah we’re already over halfway there! 🙂 Before I get started, please SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel! I would greatly appreciate it. 🙂 Today I am sharing with y’all a video tutorial on how to get these gorgeous textured waves that have very lived-in feel. These textured waves are so popular right now, and have been seen all over the runway this year, most recently at NYFW16. Some of the looks from NYFW were definitely out there, but I wanted to create a hair style for y’all that is wearable every day and easy to do!
These textured waves are different from a traditional curl, and the key is using a larger barrel size. They are supposed to be very lived-in waves and messy. I am using the Theorie Quantum Switch Curling Wand from Folica with the 32mm barrel attachment to achieve this look. Another key part to this look is using a texturizing spray. I am using the Fave4 Texture Takeover Spray from Folica as well, and it works perfectly for this look. It also smells AMAZING. Any hairspray that works AND smells good definitely has my heart. I catch myself smelling my hair throughout the day because it smells that good. As an optional but last step for your textured waves, you can apply your favorite hair oil to the ends of your hair if they are looking dry or frizzy. I used the Nth Degree True Repair Helichrysum & Grapeseed Serum from Folica VERY lightly on my ends to just smooth them over, and also lightly brushed it on any flyaways or baby hairs on the top of my head. This product also smells amazing, it has a soft floral scent.
I’ll be wearing these textured waves a lot this upcoming spring season, because they look so effortless and are so easy to do. They also look just as good (and sometimes better) on the day after I curl my hair. I can just wake up, brush my hair, add some dry shampoo and a little texture spray, and be good to go. I am also excited to use the Theorie Quantum Switch even more in the future, and try out the other 3 attachments. As the name implies, the Theorie Quantum Switch Curling Wand comes with 4 different curling wand attachments, a 32mm, 25 mm, a tapered 25/32 mm, and a tapered 19/25 mm.
