Wavy hair is always a beautiful look and a style that many people wish they could recreate with ease. But, depending on how your waves fall, it can be tricky to style them. However, there’s no need to worry as a great haircut from the team at Alchemy & I will encourage your natural waves.

Here’s a guide on how to pick the right wavy hairstyle for you:

You Can Go for Any Length

Whether you decide to go for a short, choppy bob, or waist-length waves, your hair will suit any length, depending on the cut. If you want to go short, consider how you will style it on a day-to-day basis. Waves can spring up when cut, so it’s worth bearing that in mind when you decide on the length.

You Can Go for Any Style

Luckily for you, waves suit any style. You could go for a blunt cut, which will look great with your natural texture. Or you could go for choppy waves, which will give you a lot of movement. You could also consider highlights – a lighter colour around your face could help to enhance the natural shine and flow of your hair.

Angled bobs look particularly great with wavy hair, or if you want to try something new, you could go for a shag haircut – the 70’s look is back, and loose waves suit this style really well.

Think About Styling

The problem is with waves is that they don’t always fall the way you want them to. Whether it’s the natural shape of your hair, or previous styling causing having an impact, you may need to factor that into the amount of time you spend on your hair each day. This is especially the case if you decide to go for a fringe. Fringes can be beautiful with wavy hair, but you might need to have some straighteners on standby!

Wavy Hair Care

Some people with wavy hair can be prone to frizz. Taking care of your wavy hair will ensure it stays beautiful, shiny, and strong. Anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner can help, and you can treat your hair once a week to a deep treatment, like a hair mask or hair oil.

It’s also worth investing in a decent hairbrush that won’t break your hair as you brush it. Try to brush it when dry (brushing when wet can interfere with your natural wave pattern) and brush it gently to avoid snapping your hair.

All hair types need heat protection spray if you plan to use heated styling tools, and this is especially true for frizz-prone hair. However, when you can, apply product to your hair (like an anti-frizz serum or cream) and leave it to dry naturally as much as possible – you can always braid it, which will give you nice beachy waves later in the day. This will help your hair to grow stronger, and it’s faster in the mornings too!
