How to Style Wavy Hair

Ah, wavy hair—that perfect in-between when it's not super straight, but it's not a full-on curl either. For those of us with naturally wavy hair, we know it's both a blessing and a slight curse. On good days, we channel beachy vibes without setting foot on the sand.

On other days?

It looks like we had a small altercation with an electric socket. But the truth is, no matter how unpredictable our waves can be, they are a trendy and dynamic hairstyle everyone loves. So, let's dive in and help you realise those hair goals you've been dreaming of!

Choosing the Right Hair Styling Tools

Flat Iron

Flat irons aren't just for those seeking poker-straight hair; they're a secret weapon in the quest for the perfect wavy hairstyle. Choose one with ceramic plates—it offers even heat and less potential hair damage. When working with your flat iron, a quick twist of the wrist can give your locks those beachy waves you're pining for.

Curling Wand

For a more pronounced, curly wavy hairstyle, the curling wand is your best mate. Always remember to use a heat protectant before you start, to keep your locks safe from potential heat damage. For a more natural look, alternate the direction of your curls. Pro tip: leaving the ends straight can give a more relaxed, beachy finish.

Detangling Hairbrush

This is crazy, but did you know that the wrong brush can lead to hair breakage? Especially when you're going for a wavy hairstyle, you want to make sure those waves are smooth and tangle-free.

Choose a hairbrush designed to detangle without causing strain or damage. Brushes with flexible bristles can glide through your hair smoothly, reducing the risk of breakage. Also, remember to always brush starting from the tips and working your way up.

How Halo Hair Extensions Can Enhance Your Wavy Hairstyle

If you're struggling with hair volume or just looking for a little extra length, Halo hair extensions are a game changer. Especially if you've got short hair, blending Halo hair extensions can give you those lush, full waves you've been dreaming of.

Blending with Halo Hair Extensions

Halo hair extensions are honestly the best hair extensions for fine hair. They don't damage, pull, or stress your hair. Here's how I do it: After styling my natural hair into a wavy hairstyle, I put on my Halo, ensuring it sits comfortably and securely. Then, with my favourite hair styling tools, I blend halo hair extensions with my short hair. The result? Fuller, richer waves that seem absolutely natural.

Which Halo is Right for You?

Now, if you want to add just a bit of volume to match your existing hair length, the FINE Halo extension is a good bet. However, if you're eyeing a wavy hairstyle with both volume and a touch of length (2-3 inches more), the MEDIUM Halo will be your go-to.

For those dreaming of a dramatic change with much more length and volume, the THICK Halo is ideal. Once you've chosen your perfect halo hair extensions, styling it into your wavy hairstyle is a breeze.

Hair Loss Home Remedies and Wavy Styles

You might be wondering: What if my hair isn’t naturally voluminous or what if I've experienced some hair loss? First, there's no shame in that. Many of us, including me, have been there. Thankfully, there are hair loss home remedies that can help.

Natural treatments like aloe vera, coconut oil, and ginseng can promote hair growth. While you're working on that, Halo hair extensions can offer an immediate solution, making your wavy hairstyle look as full and vibrant as ever.

Hair Accessories to Complement Your Waves

Want to know the best part? Once you've achieved your dreamy wavy hairstyle, you can accentuate it with some trendy hair accessories. Think minimalist hairpins, silk scrunchies, or even jeweled barrettes. Not only do they add a touch of pizzazz, but they also add character to your waves.

Incorporating Hair Trends into Your Waves

Wavy hairstyles are versatile, making them the perfect canvas for trying out hair trends of the season. Whether it’s the trending ombre hair colour, an updo using halo hair extensions, or even just playing around with different textures like braids and buns, your wavy hair can be the star of the show.

Now: Let’s dive deep into the styles!

For those who wonder if halo hair extensions damage your hair, the good news is they don’t. This style, combined with halo extensions, can be your best bet if you want a refreshing change.

What you'll need:

  • Professional barber or hair stylist for the shaved nape
  • Curling iron
  • Halo extensions (if you desire volume on the crown)
  • Hair mousse

How to do it:

  1. It's crucial to get the shaved nape done professionally to avoid any mishaps.
  2. Apply hair mousse to damp hair, focusing on the crown and the longer portions of your pixie.
  3. Use the curling iron to define and style the longer sections.
  4. For added volume on the crown, blend in your halo extensions. This gives a fuller appearance, making the contrast with the shaved nape even more striking.

FAQ: Natural Wavy Hairstyles and Halo Hair Extensions

Q: Can I use bond builders for hair with my halo hair extensions?

A: Well, it's a bit of both yes and no. Bond builders are primarily designed for natural hair, especially after colour treatments or intensive heat styling. For your halo extensions, it's best to use our specialised Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner. This formula is crafted to prolong the life of your extensions. Both treatments aim to minimise breakage, ensuring that your natural hair and extensions remain in pristine condition.

Q: How often should I clean my hair brushes when using halo extensions?

A: Regular maintenance is key! Cleaning your hair brushes weekly removes trapped hair, product build-up, and oils, ensuring a smooth brushing experience. This can prevent potential snags or breakage when brushing through your natural waves and extensions.

Q: What are the main causes of hair breakage, and how can halo extensions help?

A: Hair breakage can be caused by a myriad of factors - over-styling, using harsh products, and even environmental factors like sun damage. Our halo hair extensions give your natural hair a break, allowing it to recover while still giving you a full-bodied, wavy look. Plus, as they don't damage your hair, they're a fantastic option for those with fine strands.

Q: I love my brown hair, but it keeps fading. How do I maintain the colour with extensions?

A: Colour fade is a common concern, especially with sun exposure and regular washing. To keep brown hair from fading, use colour-protecting shampoos and conditioners. Additionally, our halo extensions are crafted to retain their colour, blending seamlessly with your natural shade.

Embracing natural wavy hairstyles has never been this straightforward. With our halo hair extensions, not only do you achieve that dreamy, wavy look, but you also protect and nurture your natural locks. So, whether you're flaunting your waves at a summer event or just lounging with friends, know that your hair game is on point!
