How to Create Waves With a Curling Iron

How to Curl Your Hair For Glamorous Waves vs. Beach Waves

When it comes to creating wavy hair, it's easier said than done. There are plenty of hacks: sleep in braids, scrunch your hair, use a beach-wave spray. But if your hair is straight as a board, you're going to need heat to keep your waves intact.

Plus, not all waves are created equal! Polished, sleek, Old Hollywood waves are perfect for work, taking meetings, or a fancy night out, while beach waves are the perfect "I'm carefree and fabulous!" daytime look or — if you're like me — create a sexy, edgy look with texture for a night of dancing.

There are a few tricks to mastering each look and a few products you'll need by your side, too. Check out how to get both of these full-range wave looks in this quick tutorial.
