Rip­ple EF­FECT

Make waves this sea­son

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - Hair -

When in doubt, curl! If you don’t have time to visit the sa­lon for a ritzy up-do, creat­ing waves at home is the per­fect, stylish al­ter­na­tive when at­tend­ing a sum­mer soirée. Fol­low the steps be­low to mas­ter your favourite style.

Tousled waves

Take a curling tong and start curling the hair mid­way down, leav­ing the top half straight. Hold each piece for 10 sec­onds. Try (1) Sil­ver Bul­let City Chic Curling Iron, $79.

Al­ter­nate the di­rec­tion of the curls as you work your way around your head, but make sure to curl the sec­tions on ei­ther side of your face out­wards.

Once fin­ished, let the curls cool, then brush. Fin­ish with a light mist of low-hold hair­spray.

Vin­tage curls

Cre­ate a deep side part for the retro look.

Take a large-bar­rel tong and wind 5cm pieces around it to­wards your face, hold­ing for 15 sec­onds. The idea is to cre­ate a very uni­form look, so each piece needs to be the same size, and wrapped and held for ex­actly the same amount of time.

Once all the pieces around your head are done, spray with a firm-hold hair­spray. Al­low it to set for five min­utes.

Once cooled, comb locks with a fine­tooth comb to smooth, then set with (2) an­other mist of hair­spray, like $8.99. He­lena Su­per Hold Hair­spray,

Beachy waves

These curls are all about tex­ture, so prep dry hair by spritz­ing with sea-salt spray.

Us­ing a con­i­cal curling wand, wrap small, hap­haz­ard sec­tions around the tong and hold for five min­utes.

Shake the curls out with your fin­gers, then mist with a fi­nal spritz of salt spray. (3)
