You've probably seen this pin floating around Pinterest. It explains how you can make waves in your hair by twisting your hair around an elastic headband overnight. Smart, right? I thought so too.
I gave it a try, but found my hair didn't stay put all night. Also, I didn't love the small wave/curls that came out of twisting multiple strands. I decided to try a similar tactic, only using two twists. I liked this a lot better. It made bigger wave-curls and the twists actually stayed put overnight because I used clips to hold it in place.
This is from the other day, when I slept with my hair in the two twists overnight:
I am all about the quick and easy hairstyles and this one couldn't be easier. My former go-to easy waves came from sleeping with my hair in a braid. Believe it or not, these twists are even easier to do <and in my opinion, provides even prettier waves>.
*I like to wash my hair in the evenings <thanks to dry shampoo, only every couple of days>. If you twist your hair when it's still wet, they turn out even better. Especially if you blast them with some hot air from the blow dryer before taking them down. That is a great way to "set" the waves.
*You can make this style last a few days. Just use dry shampoo and keep your hair in the two twists over night. Often times it's even prettier on day two.
*When you're going a few days between washes, use dry shampoo at night. That way, your roots absorb the shampoo over night and you wake up with cleaner looking hair.
*This may be obvious, but don't comb out the twists! Just use your fingers to separate and smooth the hair.
Enjoy and happy Saturday!
