Ever since this past summer, I’ve been trying to perfect the Guy Tang inspired ‘lived-in’ ‘I woke up like this’ effortless wavy hairstyle. I’ve watched countless videos and I just found myself not 100% satisfied with the styles I was doing. Sometimes they were too curled, at times they were way too loose. Finally, after much practice, I think I finally got it.
I do my waves with my GHD hair straightener – the best flat iron I’ve ever owned and I’ve had it for almost 5 years? Thanks to my wonderful brother who spoiled me on my birthday one year. I don’t use any texturizer spray or product in my hair. When I’m done going through my head with the waves, I use my fingers to brush them out, loosen them and, once I’m satisfied with the look, I just go in with my Joico K-Pak Protective hairspray for an all-day hold.
I’ve found myself doing this hairstyle almost everyday for work and weekends. It looks even more effortless the next morning! Plus you can actually tell people that you really woke up like that, lol.
