Boho waves are gorgeous, and are one of the easiest styles to achieve. There are many different ways to get the boho wave look, but today, we have beauty blogger Sarah McCormick on board to give us some helpful hints and tips to achieving the Boho wave look in the most natural way using our Lionesse Curling Wand. The boho look is a natural wave look, which can be likened to spending time on the beach. Some may call them beach waves. Since this week is focused on all things boho, we thought it only right to bring you a simple, easy to do tutorial on how you can get the look yourself at home. Without further ado, we would like to let Sarah get right into teaching you how it’s done. Sarah, take it away!
Hello again, lovely ladies. Today, I am bringing you a simple and easy style to create using your curling wand or curling iron – the boho wave. Boho waves can be created using anything from a hair dryer, to curling iron or wand, to a flat iron, and even pinning up the hair. Today, though, I wanted to put my nifty new Lionesse curling wand to the test and see just how fantastic I could make these boho waves look – and I have gotta say, it didn’t disappoint. I didn’t even need to use hairspray to get the look to stay! This may not be the case for everyone, but for me personally, the style held well – and I owe it all to my fantastic Lionesse product. As a side note, if you don’t own one of these, I highly suggest you invest in one – this is by far the most phenomenal curling wand I’ve ever used, and I own quite a few hair products.
The items you will need to get the boho wave look I created here are:
- Lionesse Curling Wand – Sold in the Silk Ceramic Set from Lionesse (You can use any curling wand, but I do recommend this brand)
- Heat Resistant Glove – my gorgeous black and pink glove came with my Lionesse Silk Ceramic Set
Here’s how to get the look:
Step 1: Start out with straight, clean, dry hair. You can section the hair off with clips, or keep all the hair down and go piece by piece, adding waves wherever you believe would look good like I did.
Step 2: Allow your curling wand to heat up, and put on your heat styling glove to protect your fingers from burns on the hand opposite which will be holding the wand.
Step 3: Grasp about a 1″ – 1.5″ piece of hair and wrap around the wand, holding the wand in a downward motion. I like to twist the hair around a bit before wrapping it to give it a somewhat beachier feel when the curl is released. This is optional. Begin about halfway down the hair shaft, and wrap around the wand with about 1/2″ between each wrap. From there, hold the hair on the wand for about 5-10 seconds, and release. You should have springy waves as a result. After that, complete this process all over your head.
Step 4: Tousle your fingers through the waves, breaking up any large waved sections. You may wish to use hairspray, especially if you have thin hair.
Enjoy your gorgeous Boho waves! Accessorize if you like with a headband or head chain, or even floral accessories. The skies the limit with this style! Perfect for day or night. I hope you’ve enjoyed my simple, easy to do tutorial. Catch you all in the coming week with more gorgeous looks for you to try!
