You’ve probably seen hair wavers (or deep wavers) floating around your social feeds recently—they’re those giant, double-pronged, weapon-looking irons that clamp down on a section of hair and leave it wavy, like a modern-day crimper. Here, vlogger Jillian Lansky gets beachy waves on her short hair by first flat-ironing her hair (the waves will look more polished when you’re working with straight hair), then clamping section by section, holding the iron horizontally on the lower sections and vertically on the top sections.
If it’s your first time using a hair waver, just be warned: The wider the iron, the more tricky it’ll be to navigate around your short hair (as you can see in the tutorial). But, you’ll also only need to clamp down on each section once with a large iron, rather than multiple times with a small iron, making the whole process a bit faster. Pick your ~poison~ below:
