Wavy hair without the perm

When it comes to hair, every girl wants what she can’t have. If our hair is straight, we want it curly or wavy. If our hair is curly, we want it straight. Never happy, us girls! Well, my hair is naturally wavy…but not a cute, leave it wet and let it air dry, kind of wavy. It is more of a “I look like I just rolled out of bed” sort of wavy.

I recently had a friend ask me how to get wavy hair, so I sent her these pictures. I realize they aren’t the best quality, but I think they get the point across.

When I worked at the salon, we had a class on how to use these butterfly clips. They taught us how to get your hair wavy using only these clips, which is so amazing to me and was really one of me “How did I not think of this?!” moments.

I usually do this on dry hair but it does work better if your hair is just barely damp. My hair is so flat, so if I totally dry it, and use a volumizing powder after round brushing the top, I can get a bit of volume to begin with. Depending on how long your hair is, you will need at least 6 butterfly clips, or else you can just do a few at a time, it just takes longer.

I put them in like the pictures shown above, then use my blow dryer on them for about 10 seconds on high heat. Move the clips down the hair shaft so it will be wavy all the way down. Once you take the heat off, spray with a bit of light hairspray and un-clip them. Having hair as short as I do, I usually only need 6 for my whole head, obviously longer hair will take more clips.

I hope I have explained myself well enough! If you have any questions, let me know!! Good luck 🙂
