Many of you have asked how I have achieved the waves worn in my past several videos. Well, today is the day that I teach you how to do it!

Nothing special, nothing complicated… it is actually quite easy.  I use a deep V waver.

Deep Waves | Curly HairstylesWhat I love about these deep waves is that it makes perfect base for a second day hairstyle. All you have to do on day 2 is re-crimp the top layer and finger comb it… and you are good to go!

As always, it is important to remember to first spray your hair with a good heat protectant never to use too much heat. When I crimp, you will notice that I also never hold it more than 2-3 seconds. These irons get super hot, so that should be all you need.

Pay attention to how I manage my part line  and wave the top of the hair, because my cool trick will leave your hair looking more natural!

As promised, here are links to a few deep wavers that I have used…

Hot Tools Deep Waver

Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, heat protectant, Deep V Waver, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-12 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin with dry hair, although you do not have to blowdry before this style {it is just as cute if you sleep on wet hair and let it air dry}…
  2. Always spritz heat protectant on your hair before using heat…
  3. Section your hair into thirds and pull the top two thirds up and pin out of the way…
  4. Take a strand of hair in the bottom section and begin crimping with the heated Deep Waver at the base of the strand next to the head. {Crimp the waver down on hair and hold for 2-3 seconds. You do not want to hold for a long time.}
  5. Move the waver down the hair strand about 5 inches and repeat the crimp, continuing down the entire strand…
  6. When you are done crimping the bottom section, pull the next section of hair down and begin waving it in the same manner…
  7. Continue the same with the top layer, except you part the top layer down the middle first and then wave it…
  8. Next, find the side part you want and flip the hair over the middle part {this gives a  more natural look for the waves on top and does not show the waver crimp marks on top as much.
  9. Finger comb the hair to get the desired look, and feel free to crimp any missed strands.
  10. Add some hairspray {optional} to hold the waves.

  1. Is the hot tools waver a smaller barrel/make a smaller wave than the waver you use in the video? I like the size you have in the video but would rather spend less $ if they are the same size. thanks

  2. Do you think we could use a normal curling iron?? (I don’t have a crimper, and I’m most likely not getting one any time soon.)

  3. hi Mindy could you please tell me what time you normally do your videos because I live some where else in the world and you are 8 hours behide where I live
