Create perfect waves without the heat

Create perfect waves without the heat

If you find yourself standing in front of the mirror for hours on end, wrapping your pin-straight hair around a sizzling curling iron to create that perfect beachy wave, then it might be time to step away from the heat.

Using a curling iron too often can result in fried and damaged hair that, no matter how hard your wrap, twist and clamp, will eventually fall flat and limp. Try some new, heat-free beauty tips and hair products to produce the waves you want and before you know it you'll stash away that burning iron for good.

Beach-going braids
Loose and carefree beachy waves can be achieved without even taking a trip to the shore. Portion your hair into at least five different sections, holding each segment back with a clip. Beginning an inch below your roots, braid the sections of hair - depending on how you loose you want the waves, the braids can be kept slack, or tight for a more prominent curl. Once your whole head is braided, lightly mist the braids with hairspray, such as the Steiner Stay Put Extra Firm Finishing Spray.

After leaving the braids in for about half an hour, unravel them and carefully break up the waves with your fingertips. For an extra surf-happy vibe, spray the top of the waves with the finishing spray and gently scrunch. 

Fixing your hair into pin curls is one of the easiest ways to create glamorous all-over waves without the fuss of a curling iron. First, twist a large section of hair - the bigger the portion, the fuller the curl - all the way up to your roots. Wrap the twisted hair around itself until it's sitting coiled on your scalp. Secure the tiny bun with two crisscrossing bobby pins. Repeat until your whole head is covered with these tiny coils.

For the fullest pin-curl effect, wrap your head in a silk scarf or bandanna and sleep on it. Undo the curls in the morning and gently tousle them with your fingertips, scrunching the roots for an extra lift.

Do the twist
If you don't have time to braid or pin your hair, it's not a problem - you can twist your way to stunning waves with only your fingers. First, mist your damp or dry hair with a beach spray that will add some extra texture to your strands. Next, rub a small amount of styling cream onto the palm of your hands to give your hair a firm hold before you start twisting.

Beginning with the top layer, pick a small section of hair and start twirling it from the ends. New York City-based stylist Bronwen Melvin told Allure magazine that the more you twist, the more your strands should resemble a Twizzler. Once you've twisted the hair all you can, scrunch it into a tiny bun and hold it there for several seconds. Repeat this twisting on sections of hair around your head, alternating between large and small twists for a bed-head look. To make sure your waves last, lightly spray them with a finishing product, such as the Steiner Gloss Mist Shine Spray, which will also give them a healthy sheen.

Sock bun
The sock bun was a huge trend in 2013, but did you know that it could be used for more than just going out? Next time, don't let your perfectly created sock bun go to waste - try reusing it for soft and romantic waves.

To make a sock bun, first cut the toe off a clean sock and roll it into a donut shape. Then, gather your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head, fastening it with a hair tie. Work the end of your ponytail through the hole in the sock, wrapping sections of hair over the sock as you do so. Once you roll the sock all the way to the top of your head, make sure all the loose strands are tucked under. 

Leave the bun in overnight, or for at least six to eight hours. Once you remove the sock and elastic, your hair will fall into flowing waves. Gently loosen them with your fingertips and rub a styling cream, such as Steiner Discipline Styling Taffy, to achieve a piece-y look.

Don't hesitate to express your concerns if you do not like the work quality or if you are planning to make some modifications. The price will rely on the total dimensions to be cleaned, and irrespective of whether or not any increased fees will be extra if furnishings requirements to be moved.
