Wavy hair provides a relaxed, easy look. It's perfect for a day when you're relaxing at home and don't want to fuss with styling your hair. Creating a wavy look doesn't require a great deal of effort, just a few products and clean hair. Work this style into your nightly routine to create beautiful, wavy hair with little effort. Try it a few different ways to see how the timing impacts how wavy your hair becomes.

Wash your hair. Use a conditioner to soften your hair and make it easy to comb.

Remove excess water by covering your hair with a towel, gently rubbing at the scalp and wringing out the ends of the hair. Don't rub the ends, as this causes tangles.

Add gel or mousse to your hair. Use as little product as possible to avoid having too much product and making your hair stiff instead of flowing.

Scrunch your hair if you have short hair. Take a small handful of hair near your scalp and squeeze it. Continue to scrunch that section of hair in a downward direction until that vertical section is complete. Use both hands at the same time to cover more of your hair.

Put your wet hair in a bun if you have long hair. Leave your hair in the bun until it dries by sleeping on it overnight. If you have wavy or curly hair, however, leave the bun in for an hour or two to create waves without making your hair too wavy.

Things You'll Need

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Pony tail holder
  • Gel or mousse
Tips & Warnings
  • Best time to use this hairstyle: when you want something cute, quick and easy.

    Also good for not damaging your hair (curling irons, blow dryers and straightners are bad for your hair if used too much)

  • Unless you blow dry your hair, it may not be wise to use this style if it is cold outside because you do not want to be outside with wet hair.
