Hair Trend Spotting: People’s Choice Awards Relaxed Waves

Hair Trend Spotting People’s Choice Awards Relaxed Waves

Many of the beauty and hair looks at last night’s People’s Choice Awards were effortless and unfussy. Wildly trending on the red carpet was relaxed waves. This toned down yet impeccably chic look paired well with glamorous dresses served as a fresh pairing usually reserved for more low-key events. While Naya Rivera debuted new blonde tresses, she too sported this waved look alongside Sandra Bullock and Malin Akerman. Whether you’re blonde or brunette, here are some professional tips to achieving this celebrity hairstyle.

Prep: Maintaining hair’s shape and look throughout long award presentations is essential in red carpet beauty. Before styling make sure to prep hair with an extender that will offer lasting results. Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender is an ideal product that will not only maintain the hairstyle longer but it reduces the need for touch-up and provides a delayed need for shampooing. After that is thoroughly applied, make sure to protect hair with a strong heat protectant like ghd’s Heat Protect Spray.

Style: After hair is blown out, it’s time to add effortless waves. Part hair in even sections and clip away hair that is not being styled. Depending on your desired look, take a one to one and a half inch curling iron or wand and gently wrap hair around, concentrating below the roots.

Finish: After hair is curled, finger comb curls to loosen to achieve nice waves. For a more polished and smooth look, work a small portion of Drybar’s The Chaser shine pomade onto the ends of hair to prevent frizz and pesky flyaways. Finally, spray with Bumble & Bumble’s Bb. Thickening Dryspun Finish hairspray for a lasting hairstyle without heaviness and sticky residue.

    I like Naya’s style best, but not the color. I like her much better with dark tresses.

    Naya’s hair looks so, so dry, like it’s been burnt, I’m kind of disgusted .. Seriously, she could, no she SHOULD have done something!
