The IT-it: Waves and Curls

Woman have spent the better part of the past three decades blowing, hot ironing and treating their hair to get every strand in place. Finally, finally, you can get rid of your DryBar membership because curls and waves are coming back in a big way.

Of course, we aren't considering the big hair and teased curls of the 80s. We are indeed in the midst of a hair renaissance. Perms are becoming a regular thing in top salons and volume enhancing hair care products are now the product segment de jour. For the hottest I-just-woke-up-with-this-great-hair we suggest going towards a beachy wave. The curls are loose, light and naturally irregular.

For the best at-home unstyled-style, we suggest french braiding wet hair and then letting it loose. We've been experimenting with some products for the past year that are perfect for your newest Summer look. Below is a list of some of our favorite sprays for fabulous waves.


Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray ($29)
This spray is an updated classic infused with extra minerals. It smells great and gets the job done right.

Alterna Bamboo Beach Ocean Waves ($22)
Smells a bit too coconutty but each time I went to bring it back, I stopped, because the waves looked so good. Best results when used on wet hair.

Orbe Apres Beach Wave & Shine ($39)
The gold standard in beach waves. It adds volume and luminosity to your hair and works well on dry and wet hair.

Show Beauty Premier Texture Working Spray ($35)
A combination of volcanic ash and wheat amino acids create volume and a unique texture. Best used on dry hair to add volume and body.

Sachajuan Ocean Mist ($31)
You can taste the salt on your hands after working through this product. It is great at mimicking that wind and surf look from the marble floors of your bathroom. Can be used on dry or wet hair but the best results occurred with wet hair.
