If you’re looking for an easy way to get those gorgeous beach waves – sans beach – I found the perfect hair waver! I’ve been using it for the last few months and it now has my stamp of approval. My girls will often request that I use it on them for “mermaid hair!”
Best Hair Waver for Medium – Long Hair
The waver I found is the Bed Head Wave Artist Deep Waver. The price sold me first (it’s usually about $25!) and the reviews are amazing. It sells out SO fast so if it’s in stock, snag one asap!
Bed Head Wave Artist Pros:
- Incredible price – typically around $25!
- Heats up super fast
- Easy to use and FAST!
- Works on medium to long hair (we haven’t tried it on short hair yet)
- Waves last on my hair for a few days!
- Auto shut off
Bed Head Wave Artist Cons:
- The temperature dial is a little wonky – hard to figure out what it’s set at!
How to use Wave Artist Deep Waver
I start with clean, air dried hair and I like using a nourishing gloss or heat protectant on my hair first.
Divide hair into two layers (three if your hair is super thick!) Also, make sure your waver is turned up to medium-high.
Starting on the bottom layer, grab a section of hair about an inch wide. Begin at the roots and lightly clamp a section of hair. Hold for a few seconds, then unclamp.
Move the barrel down, line up the wave above it and clam again. Continue working down your hair. I like to leave a small section at the end of my strands out and not clamp all the way to the end.
After you finish the bottom layer, let down the rest of your hair.
For the top layer, I do not start at the root! It will create some weird lines if you start right at the root. Instead, bring it down a few inches and start there.
I prefer to have defined waves right that shape my face, but you can decided how defined or soft each wave is depending on how long you hold the clamp.
Finish off with some texture spray and you’re good to go! This hairstyle is super cute with a headband or a hat, too!
