While new hair trends are constantly popping up, sometimes the best place to look for a great hair stlye is the past! Loose vintage waves are a classic and sexy look that will never go out of style. The best part is that this look is super easy to achieve. Follow the steps below!
Step 1: Start with straight hair.
Step 2: Section off your hair starting at the bottom and working your way up.
Step 3: With a curling iron, take a section of hair and curl in/under towards you, creating a tight ringlet.
Step 4-8: Repeat step 3-9 on the rest of your hair. Curl your hair in towards you, not outwards (otherwise it will flip).
Step 9: Once all hair is in ringlets, using a brush, gently brush out all ringlets. (See final look soft brushed look at step 10)
Step 11: Take your curling iron on the ends of hair and give one final curl flipping hair in/under towards you.
Once finished, you should be left with loose vintage waves that are old school beauty icon worthy! For added glam, add a red pouty lip and you’ll feel red carpet ready!
