The Easiest Way to Land Pretty Waves!

 
OK, summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to ditch your long ‘n’ lovely waves. I got my hair snipped the other day, and my stylist showed me an easy way to enhance my waves—without busting out the curling iron. Here’s the how-to:
 
1. Start with the proper chop.
I might be a beauty editor but (confession!) it had been ages since I’d lopped my locks. Maintaining long layers will help bring out a natural curl. My hair had turned a li’l lifeless over the summer.
 
2. Use a curl cream.
In the past I’d stayed away from products made for curly girls. My stylist smoothed on a bit of curl serum while my hair was still damp. This one moisturizes, too, which is perf for post-summer, parched strands.
 


3. Twist—don’t scrunch.
I’ve tried every method under the sun to boost my tresses: I’ve slept with buns in my hair, done the braid/unbraid thing, simple WISHED that my hair would look ripped-from-the-runway. Here’s the no-fail method: Loosely twist small sections of your hair while blow-drying your hair with a diffuser. Blow out hair until it’s 80-percent dry. Let it air dry the rest of the way to define the curls. And…you’re done! Now keep those mitts off to keep the frizz at bay.
