the best styling tools to create lazy waves

Available at our Southampton, Fareham, Gosport & Waterlooville Salons

Follow this easy “Step By Step” to create the look :

Step 1 : pre wash and condition with your desired hair care regime and then towel dry.

Step 2 : spritz the hair from root to ends with milk_shake Volume Solution Spray and blast dry with a paddle brush until completely dry.

Step 3 : work throughout the hair in vertical sections winding the hair around the curling tongs keeping the clamp shut (we find that using the clamp produces dents in the hair), leave out around 1-2inches of the ends of the hair to create the lived-in lazy wave look.

Step 4 : when the whole head is complete, gently brush through the hair entirely with your paddle brush or a wide tooth comb and apply a small amount of milk_shake Argan oil to the mid-lengths to the ends. (do not apply any oil to roots!)  If desired you can also use a little more milk_shake Eco Hairspray to fix the look.

Give your hair a little swish, check out how fabulous you look in the mirror, snap a selfie…..then go dress to impress!
