How to Make Straight Hair Wavy: 5 Easy Steps

Five easy steps to lovely textured tresses.

Allen Ruiz demonstrates how to make straight hair wavy and get bombshell texture so even your straight-tressed friends can experience the texture revolution!

  1. Part hair down the center using a rattail comb. Saturate hair with volumizing spray and divide into 1-inch to 1½-inch sections.
  2. Apply a holding gel to each section and twist around finger to create a cylindrical coil. Continue up the back of the head in a brick-lay pattern.
  3. Blow dry while scrunching the hair upwards, using fingers as a diffuser. Continue to squeeze hair as it cools.
  4. Use a ¾-inch clipless curling iron to give more shape to random pieces. Leave out ends for a more modern look.
  5. Finish the look by breaking up curls gently with fingers for added softness and volume. Spray with hairspray for hold.


I like this idea, but I don't like how the waves turn stringy at the ends. I hate it when my hair doesn't form in clumps!
