Naturally wavy hair is one of the most desirable hair types around. After all, waking up with a head full of waves is a fabulous way to stay ahead of the texture game. However, there’s nothing wrong with exploring your options when trying out other chic wavy hairstyle looks. It’s the perfect chance to steer away from letting your strands just hang free. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to take your hairstyling game to the next level. You can experiment with braids or choose from a range of wavy bob hairstyles and other trendy looks. In other words, the possibilities are vast and seriously fashionable.
If you’re ready to make a big impact on the hairstyling front, we’re here to help. Follow along as we share 22 of the best wavy hairstyles to help you show off your gorgeous texture.
1. Beach Waves
This wavy hairstyle is an all-around classic, and for a good reason. Whether you have short or long hair, fine strands or lots of thickness, you can make beach waves work for you. You can use a curling iron — just be sure to apply a heat protectant like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray Leave-In beforehand — or opt for a heat-less option like sleeping in overnight braids. Both will deliver the same beautiful, tousled waves we all know and love. Start your journey to beach waves with the help of our article, 8 Ways to Get Perfect Beach Waves.
2. Side-Swept Waves
It doesn’t get more glamorous than side-swept waves. The timeless hairstyle livens up the look of long hair with a simplistic touch — and it’s a great way to take style cues from your favorite A-listers.
To get the beloved Hollywood ‘do yourself, apply a bit of hair mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse, to damp strands before letting them air dry. Once complete, create a deep side part and apply a bit of hair gel to the roots. Brush through for a sleek finish.
Editor’s tip: If you plan to use a curling iron to define the waves, make sure you spritz on a heat protectant to avoid any breakage or damage.
3. Pinned-Back Waves
If you’re anything like us, you love low-maintenance hairstyles — especially on days when your mane isn’t having it. Try pinning back your front strands with pretty pins, clips and barrettes. It’s a minimalist look that doesn’t skimp on style. Plus, these waves take seconds to create, which can speed up your beauty routine.
Brush your strands back and place a few bobby pins or decorative accessories at the back of your head to keep your strands out of your face. Finish off the look by misting your strands with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Extra Strong Hold hairspray.
4. Messy Half-Up Ponytail
A messy half-up pony serves up childhood nostalgia with a laidback and carefree spin. This look also comes in handy to help you flaunt your natural texture, true length and an updo all at once.
To get the look, apply a generous amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp strands. Scrunch and let air-dry. Once your hair is dry, use your fingers to horizontally part your hair just above your ears to create your half-up look. Secure your half-up pony right at the crown of your head to give the appearance of full, bouncy tresses.
5. Half-Up Braided Top Knot
Another style that looks flawless with wavy tresses is this half-up braided top knot. It’s the happy medium wavy hairstyle for days when you can’t decide between wearing your hair down or in an updo. Plus, it’s a great way to elevate your look for a work meeting or a night out on the town. Follow our step-by-step tutorial on How to Weave a Half-Up Braided Top Knot to get the stunning look yourself.
