Messy Waves

I have been trying to perfect the “messy” waves hairstyle for years, but it’s not as easy as it looks.  It’s funny how that effortless look really isn’t all that effortless!  Luckily, I stumbled upon this messy waves how-to on the Nasty Gal blog.  I’m going to buy this Bumble and Bumble thickening spray and this Hot Tools Curling wand (I swear by Hot Tools curling irons) and follow their 5 easy steps.  I’ll let you all know how it goes!

    I put a little leave in conditioner and Morrocan oil in my hair after I shower and twist it into a slightly loose ballerina bun on top of my head to let it dry like that..it always leaves my hair perfectly wavy!

      trying that – sounds so much easier than using a curling iron!!!

    I already have wavy-ish hair, but I swear by the Princess Leia buns! I wear them all the time and also do the top bun like Rhiannon.
