How to get textured waves
First and foremost, start with clean hair and make sure it is completely dry. If you just finished washing it, you can let your hair air dry but if you’re in a hurry, try using a blow dryer to speed up the drying process. Once your hair is fully dry, part your hair into 4 sections, 2 on top and 2 on bottom, to make it easier for yourself when you begin curling.
After your hair has been divided, apply heat protection to each section to protect your hair from the heat of the curling iron. Start at the roots and lightly moisturize into hair until reaching the end. When curling, remember to curl 1 inch of hair from each section at a time to ensure the heat is evenly stroking your hair. You will start from one side of your head and work your way to the other side.
Using your choice of either flat iron or curling iron, vertically grab the 1 inch pieces of your hair. Depending on which side you started, your dominant thumb should be facing outwards. To complete the curl, twist your hand in a half circle away from your face to create the perfect textured curl. You’ll want to repeat these steps for each parted section of hair.
After your hair has been fully curled, grab your choice of hairspray or texture spray and spritz your curls. Using the tips of your fingers, gently break up the curls. The light movement of your fingers will loosen the curl and create a wavy texture. Start at the top of your scalp for volume, and work your way down through the curls. Once your waves are as tight or loose as you prefer, add additional spray for extra staying power.

No matter how long or short, thin or thick your hair is, getting your lovely lady locks perfected is an important part of a woman’s daily routine. The only difference is the time in which you’ll be done. Shorter hair tends to be quicker while longer strands take a little more time. Don’t let that discourage you though, if you have longer locks then just plan accordingly!
