Creating Flawless Waves and Touchable Curls

Want to indulge in a new style for the change of seasons? One way to switch up your look is to create some major waves or boost your curl—whether it’s just for a day or something a little more permanent.

Simple waves

If your hair is straight or wavy and your wish is for a more voluminous look, try washing it at night and drying it with volumizing mousse. We really like Style Link Volume Builder Mousse.


Next, wrap large sections around strips of terry cloth (or socks) and sleep on these soft homemade curlers to create a beachy-wave set overnight. This will save you time in the morning, but won’t disturb your sleep like your grandma’s plastic or foam rollers. Simply mist with a flexible hold hairspray like Kenra Design Spray 9 in the morning and you’ll be on your way!


Not your mother's perm

Looking for a more permanent curl fix? Perms are making a big comeback. Unlike the perms of the past though, these are created with multiple rod sizes and can create wavy texture, volume, and spirals all in one visit. The finished product is soft and touchable. Use a frizz-fighter like Redken Curvaceous Wind Up to help maintain curls and keep hair healthy and hydrated.


Returning to the curl

And for those of you who have had your hair chemically straightened, going back to curly can take months to grow out—but the good news is healthy hair does grow out. Keep it nourished by using a leave-in treatment like Redken Extreme Anti-Snap. During the grow-out phase you can transition by having your hair set into a curly style that mimics your future goal. These styles usually take 1-2 hours to create, but can be worn for up to two weeks. Head to your local Signature Style salon to learn more.
