Video Tutorial: Tousled Waves (Guest Blogger)

After chopping my hair a few weeks back, curling my much shorter locks was hard to get the hang of. Luckily, I can always count on my Jose Eber clipless curling iron to get the perfect of curl regardless of my hair length. This magic wand has been seriously put to the test on a regular basis between my tightly curled lob & tousled waves. If you find yourself often reaching for a curling tool, I highly recommend investing in this one. It’s been a total life changer - especially dealing with humid DC summers. Woof.

An updated look means an updated tutorial! I put my favorite Jose Eber curling wand to work in this tutorial for my fellow shorter haired ladies. Today we’re talking chic & easy tousled waves & all the products it takes to get them!


What you'll need:  dry shampoo | Jose Eber Clipless Curling Iron | hairspray | a creme texturizer | a beach spray



Start with second-day hair for this look.

1. Spray roots with dry shampoo for texture and volume.

2. Use your wand to create waves. Continue to wrap your hair away from your face until it's all curled.

3. Spray with hairspray and separate curls with your fingers.

4. Use a creme texturizer to separate your waves and add a even more hold. (Bonus: it kicks frizz to the curb, too!)

5. Finish with a beach spray texturizer to really break up the waves.

6. Add a few final srunches and boom. Done.
