How to: style wavy hair without heat, using a curling spray...

Yeah so I wish my hair was effortlessly pretty and wavy like above. Unfortunately I wake up most days with a frizzy animal on my head.

Cue pictures.

...excuse my grumpy face 

Anyway, I thought I'd share this little tutorial of how I transform my untamed mop of hair into a cute, beachy, more manageable style. It's super easy, doesn't involve heat and takes about 5 minutes to do!

All you need is a curling spray and bobby pins. I use the John Frieda Dream Curls Spray...super cheap from the drug store.

Basically all you do mist all your hair with the spray. I use maybe 15 squirts.

Next, twist sections of hair into dread lock strands, then twist each strand into a spiral on your head and secure it with a bobby pin or clip or whatever you have. 

Do your whole head and it should look like this:

 I call this my Scary Spice hair.

A couple tips: 

Secure each hair spiral with clips facing downward, because it's more likely to stay in place. Or else use more than 1 clip so that your hair doesn't fall out .

Also, the neater you are with your spirals the neater your hair will come out. and the smaller sections of hair you take the curlier your hair will be...obviously. Just for a reference I wasn't very neat and I took fairly large sections.

If you are lazy like me to twist up your whole head,  just do the face framing hair pieces, then with the back of your hair twist it all up in a bun like this :

Ok now let your hair sit for 10 minutes. Do your makeup ... or eat some food or listen to some jams...whatever, occupy yourself for 10 mins lol.

When you take your hair out it should look like this:

Finger comb your hair out, add a serum if you like voila :D
