Wavy hair goes with warm weather like surfboards and picnic baskets. Low maintenance yet stylish, this summertime go-to is popular and looks great in any season. But how do you get that effortlessly tousled look? It’s fast and easier than you think. Check out our tutorial and easy step-by-step guide for getting the Perfect Loose Wave with Spirit by Ellen Wille!
We’ll be demonstrating on Spirit, which is part of the new Prime Power collection by Ellen Wille. Due to it’s unique blend of human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber, Prime hair can be heat styled up to 350 degrees. You’ll also need a 1 inch curling iron. We used the 1” Professional Ceramic Spring Iron by Gold N Hot. (Want to watch as we style? Check out our video on How To Style Prime Hair.)
Step 1: Set your curling iron to a maximum temperature of 350 degrees. Any higher will melt the fibers.
Step 2: The secret to perfecting this style is leaving the ends straight. Start by taking a 1 inch width piece of hair from the part and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron leaving about 2 inches uncurled. *Note-We are using a standard barrel curling iron. You can achieve the same look by using a curling wand which won’t clip the hair.)
Step 3: Twist the curling iron away from your face to create an outward curl.
Step 4: Hold for about 5-10 seconds.
Step 5: Pull the barrel lower on the curl and hold for another 2-3 seconds.
Step 6: Gently pull the curl as you remove the curling iron from the hair.
Step 7: Repeat this process working your way around your head until you arrive at the other side of the part.
Step 8: Run your fingers through your hair a few times to soften the curls.
Step 9: Now you have the perfect loose wave!
