Get Great Waves

-Did you wrestle with a curling iron this morning and lose? Well, don't worry. Celebrity hair stylist Gregg Giannillo shows us how we can get great waves without the fuss of curlers or other gadgets. -If you're not really handy with a curling iron or a roller, then let me just show you a different way to get some loose, sexy waves in your hair, in an easy way. Start with towel-dried hair, and a volumizing lift, sort of setting product. Just lightly apply that all through your hair. And start getting your hair dry. Now that the hair is almost completely dry, I'm gonna take sections of it and start working with it that way. I have these little octopus-type clamps. They are little clips. I only have eight of them. So now, I've sectioned everything up with the clips, the same clips I'm going to use to hold the waves. Keep this one section out, and twirl it-- as tight as you can, just like that. Heat it up, and then just wrap it up, and the clip you already have there, you use to hold it. Follow that around for the entire section. So, all the sections are good. They're all twirled up. Don't worry about them being a little messy. It's not supposed to be perfect. Spray a little bit of a light-hold and just heat it up one more time. Take them down. After they've cooled, just leave them in a few minutes, take them down, and let them just be wherever they wanna be. Don't break them up yet. Use a little bit of a-- like a texturizing defining paste, something with a little shine. And emulsify it really well in your hands. Start pulling it through, and shaking it out, and the [unk] point is where you could start breaking it up. Loose, sexy, beachy waves, and that is your tip of the day. -Looks great.
