How To Create A Textured Wave
With Oribe and Cutek
For this particular look, it’s really important to prep the hair first. After washing your hair using a product like Oribe’s Matte Waves Texture Lotion makes all the difference! Apply a small amount to the mid lengths to ends of your hair, then blow wave the hair until dry.
For my hair I find it easier to wave my hair if it’s almost straight to begin with, luckily my hair dry’s super straight but if your hair is naturally wavy you might want to grab the straightener and lightly go over your hair.
Time to Wave! My favourite curler/wand is the Cutek curling wand. I find it super easy to use and creates the most effortless and natural wave. Take a one to two inch section of hair and wrap it around the wand, curling it away from the face. Repeat until you reach the back of the head, then start on the other side (remember to curl away from the face, not towards!)
TIP – if you have long or super thick hair it might be easier to part the hair into two sections.
Once you have finished waving all the hair, grab a large paddle brush and gently brush all the curls out. Sometimes my hair can look abit to curly at this stage so I lightly go back over those sections with the straightener, it turns the curls into move of a wave.
To finish of, I use Oribe’s Dry Texture Spray (it is literally the bomb) and spray directly to the roots and ends. This spray creates a bit of volume and texture, plus adds some hold to your wave.
