Cascading Waves in 8 Minutes

Cascading Waves

Believe it or not, this soft, tousled look is easy to ace, even if you have stick-straight or fine hair. First, brush out any tangles and kinks. Then begin wrapping large sections—about 2 inches for finer hair and 1 inch for thicker hair—around a tapered, clampless curling wand.
The twist: Instead of wrapping hair flat around the barrel, loosely twirl each section of hair; this creates soft, undone texture. Continue working around your entire head, rotating the curls in different directions (toward the face and away).
When finished, let curls cool for a minute and top with a light-hold hairspray. Comb fingers through to break up the curls. Flip head upside down and spritz again for extra volume.
