If you’re a fan of no-fuss hairstyles you’re in luck because step one to achieving effortless waves this season is air-drying. Air-drying your hair allows a more natural effect to take shape. Cutting down on the damage caused by hot tools and hair dryers on the regular is also highly addictive. You save time and don’t have to sacrifice the health of your hair for a style. Read on to learn more about how to get this coveted style in a few easy steps.

Step 1

Preferably the night before of the morning before your event, cleanse and condition your hair. You can tailor your shampoo needs based on your natural hair texture. For example, if your hair is on the curly side and frizz tends to be a problem, reach for privé Damage Fix Shampoo and Conditioner to moisturize dry, tired hair. However, if you have hair that is straighter and finer, reach for privé Amp Up Shampoo and Conditioner to breath new life (and lots of volume) into your stands. Before leaving the shower, be sure to use a wide-toothed comb to get any tangles out and create your part. Once you leave the shower you want to touch your hair as little as possible.

Step 2

Once out of the shower, opt for a microfiber towel (or an old t-shirt in a pinch) to remove excess moisture from your strands. Try hard not to tousle it too much to cut down on frizz and allow your natural texture to shine through. Then apply privé Root Amplifier at the roots (more for fine/thin textures) and privé Definition Cream from mid-shafts to ends (less for fine/thin textures) and allow to air dry. Hands off during this process let the air do its thing!

Step 3

Once hair is completely dry, spritz a mix of privé Finishing Texture Spray and privé Vanishing Oil to add shine and grit to your style. If needed, you can use a curling wand to add extra waves or create a better face-frame for your style. Then, throughout the day you’ll want to use your fingers to separate your waves and tousle hair for more volume.

Et voila! With the right combination of products and a few minor tips, effortless waves will be your new favorite style in no time.
