What’s better than a perfectly undone wave? Getting the finished look with less time, effort, and energy! This summer we’re predicting a major movement toward soft waves on the horizon. The reason why they have become so popular is because of their versatility they add to any style whether you’re wearing the hair down, half up, or in an upstyle. Traditionally, most use a curling iron or a flat iron to get the look, however, there is now another option to get perfectly undone waves. With a few KEVIN.MURPHY must-haves, creating the look is now easier than ever. We’ve found the key to getting the look with less effort is with a combination of products and the iconic WAVE.CLIPS. Keep reading for a simple tutorial to add waves with ease this season!
Prep the hair with the cleanser and conditioner of your choice. If your hair tends to be on the frizzy side, consider SMOOTH.AGAIN.WASH + RINSE, or if you have fine hair that needs a little lift, try PLUMPING.WASH + RINSE. Not sure what to start with?

Once out of the shower, you might be tempted to air-dry the hair, and while this might work for some hair types, a no-fail way to get the lived-in look is by starting with freshly blow-dried hair. This will help add smoothness and shine to the overall finish.
To begin, after cleansing, apply EVER.SMOOTH to the hair to help speed up dry time, cut down on frizz and help extend style memory. You don’t need to get the hair completely straight, but drying it to a smooth level is desired. Feel free to use a round brush or a paddle brush if this suits you.
Next, start sectioning your hair and applying the wave clips throughout. Once you’ve applied the clips to most of your hair, spritz the hair with HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY to add hold and gently blow dry using a diffuser to prevent flyaways.
Once dry, let the hair cool, separate the waves with your fingers and spray HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY again to finish and add extra hold.
