How to Create Big, Wavy Hair For Summer

Show Off Your Ombré Hair With Cool Waves


If you have ombré highlights (or even just natural variations in tone) like Keke Palmer, styling your hair in big, soft curls is a great way to show them off. At last night's BET Awards, Keke's multitonal strands looked even better placed in California-cool-style waves. The look is surprisingly easy to achieve. Celebrity stylist Dean Banowetz explains that using a rotating styling tool like the InStyler ($119) is the perfect way to achieve the effect. Find out his tips when you read more.

  • Wrap one-inch sections of clean, dry hair around the barrel of the InStyler, focusing on creating a spiral shape. Keep the apparatus closed for several seconds, allowing the curl to drop freely from the unit. Note: if you don't have this particular styling tool, you can always blow-dry the hair with a round brush and hair dryer and finish by curling the hair with a large-barrel iron.
  • Next, loosen up the waves by gently raking your fingers through the hair.
  • To set, spritz on a light-hold hair spray.
