Beauty How-To: DIY Effortless Waves

Whether you have shorter hair or long, you’ve probably sought out the ‘effortless wave’ look at some point over the past couple of years. We’ve all become infatuated with making our hair look perfectly imperfect, and if you’re anything like us you’ve probably even got a Pinterest board devoted to the look. Gone are the days of hours spent struggling with the curling wand to achieve those pageant-style sausage curls. Enter piecey bobs and lobs, relaxed mid-length hair with lots of body and textured ends, and non-heat-styled locks.

    Great post, am absolutely loving the effortless ‘just got out of bed’ look even though it never really is effortless, going to have to give sea salt a try!
