Get the perfect S-waves for your hair!
Textured hair has been the most fashionable look for a while, and now it seems that our celebrities have gotten the memo too.
Rather than stepping out with silky straight locks or a head full of curls, Hollywood’s leading ladies have recently taken to rocking the ‘S-wave’, a loose, beachy wave that perfectly strikes the tone between old school glamour and bedhead chic.
The style is a great way to liven up a long bob by adding bulk and depth, as seen on Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence, but looks equally good on longer lengths, as demonstrated by Selena Gomez. To recreate the look at home, hairstylist Sarah Potempa suggests starting wth washed and dried hair, with a spot of volumizing mousse to really lift the strands. Then separate the hair into two sections. Potempa recommends parting down the center while beauty vlogger Kaushal Beauty divides the hair from ear to ear, clipping the top section up and working on the underneath section first.
The S wave can be achieved with straighteners or a curling iron. Beauty vlogger LustreLux suggests using a curling iron to create the wave, taking small sections of hair and wrapping them once around the curler, and then pull the strand down to create a low-key kink in the hair, before fluffing up the roots with a texturizing product.
