I have been so bored with my hair lately! When I straighten it it’s flat and lifeless, curling it looks the same every time, and don’t even get me started about how terrible it looks when I try to embrace my natural once-curly-now-not-curly-enough-to-wear-curly texture. That’s why I was so glad to find this super easy hair tutorial that just gives your hair a “bend” or a very soft waves which is similar to how the Kardashians have been wearing their hair. It’s simple, fast, and will make your hair way less boring immediately. I’ve also gotten a lot of compliments every time I’ve worn my hair with soft waves like this so I definitely recommend it.
Here’s the tutorial I used:
Tips for Soft Waves:
I don’t pull on the curl like she does because my hair “falls” or becomes less curly as the day goes on anyway so no need to loosen it up right away.
- While the hair is wrapped around the curling iron I slide the curling iron up and down slowly and gently maybe 1/4 of an inch so I don’t get a harsh demarcation in my hair where the heat is hitting it.
- If you want your hair to be bigger and have more volume, do a few wraps in the opposing direction.
- Embrace the imperfection of this style! It’s supposed to be easy breezy so don’t drive yourself crazy trying to make it perfect.
- It looks great on short hair too!

If you’ve never tried them, the ghd (stands for good hair day) curling irons are amazing! The ghd curve Soft Curl Iron has a 1 1/4″ barrel is a great size for this style and it heats up in 20 seconds!
Drybar’s ‘Triple Sec’ 3-in-1 Texturizer ($26) is awesome for giving your hair volume, body, and texture (duh) and smells incredible.
Drybar’s ‘Money Maker’ Flexible Hold Hairspray ($26) will give you a nice light hold to keep the wave without letting hair get hard or crunchy.
