Beauty Tip Tuesday: How To Get Natural Waves
Hi friends! I had an idea recently to start doing something called “Beauty Tip Tuesday”, where I write a post, one or two Tuesdays out of each month, with simple beauty tips that have helped me up my skincare, haircare, and makeup game. Would that be something y’all would like? Let me know in the comments!
Today I wanted to share my tips to getting those natural waves that we all want. I have straight hair, so I am always trying different things to give my hair a more messy, wavy look.
Tip 1: Use a curling wand rather than a curling iron. A curling iron is going to give you those perfect curls, which are still pretty, but if you’re going for the more messy, natural look, a curling wand will be your best friend. The one I use is the Bellami 6 in 1 Curling Wand (25mm).
Tip 2: When you wrap your hair around the wand, leave about an inch of hair at the bottom that is not curled (as shown below). And don’t leave your hair on the wand for more than 5 Mississippis.
Tip 3: After you count to 5 Mississippis, let the hair fall. Do not hold the curl in your hand. Some people do this when they want their curls to stay longer, however doing this will prevent you from getting those “natural” waves.
Tip 4: Use a texturizing spray. This will help to “dirty” up your hair a bit and give it texture, which is really the key to that undone, natural wave look. It will also help to hold the curls. I use the Chi Texturizing Spray which works pretty well.

Hopefully these tips help! I hope y’all are having a great week so far!
