I created these textured waves over on instagram stories the other day! I got a lot of questions on it so I thought I’d do a full IGTV and blog post about it! I also wanted to share some of the products I used to create this look! As well as a quick step-by-step textured waves hair tutorial! I love this look for a fun beachy style in summer!

Products for Textured Waves

  1. The shampoo and conditioner I have been loving lately are Kerastase!
  2. Hair mask– I have been using this hair mask lately and really like it!
  3. Leave-in treatment This leave-in conditioner from Aveda is really nice and makes my hair feel great!
  4. Waver I got this hair waver on Amazon and spoiler alert- it is under $25! I love this tool for creating volume and a tousled look!
  5. Curling Iron– It is no secret I love t3 products! I use their 1.25 inch curling iron all the time to create the perfect curl, whether it is loose or a more polished look. For this look I used this iron– my favorite.
  6. I really like this hairspray! It is so light but has amazing hold. It works great for a look like this.
  7. Hair paste also really helps to create that tousled look! Here is a nice one from Redken.
  8. Hair Oil- Love this one from Ouai

How to Create Textured Waves

  1. I started off my shampooing and conditioning my hair and doing a leave-in conditioner mask.
  2. Spray with a little hair oil to add shine and reduce frizz and add a little Aveda conditioning treatment which I will apply to my hands and run through my ends.
  3. Next, I will brush those products through my hair.
  4. Then, I blow dry my hair with my T3 blowdryer. Blow drying your hair gives it a lot of volume to begin with so that is definitely a great place to start!
  5. Next, I split my hair off into sections: top and bottom. You can clip your hair up with these clips– they don’t dent your hair which is so nice while styling.
  6. Then, I will go through my bottom layer of hair with the waver, clamping every other piece. Try and make it a little sporadic which will help with texture and volume.
  7. Then, I will go in with the curling iron, and curl the remaining pieces on the bottom layer. This way, by mixing in the curling iron and the waver, it looks super beachy and not too uniform.
  8. Repeat for the top layer. The less uniform-the better!
  9. Spray with hairspray and then use a hair pomade on the ends to give it the textured look.
  10. Run fingers through your hair and shake from the root to create volume and spray again to hold everything in place!

I hope you enjoyed this quick textured waves hair tutorial!
