HOTD: Messy Waves

Hi there! I was playing around with my new hair straightener the other day and ended up with this hairstyle.


It's a very very very very very messy wavy style which, I think, is perfect for those "casual" days. When I was younger, I always dreamed of having wavy hair. So here's me, fulfilling that dream.

To create these messy waves, I used my JML Wet Straight Pro hair straightener and a Bumpit.

Bumpit, medium-sized (height = 1.7 cm)
So far, I am really happy with my new flat iron. I don't use it everyday, though. I don't wanna burn my hair to death.

Read on to know how I did this very simple hairstyle :)

I used the straightener to curl my hair, focusing on the ends, and then loosened up the curls a bit to make them less curly and more wavy. Then, I gathered part of my hair into a half-ponytail and used a medium-sized Bumpit to give it more volume.



Look how big it made my hair!


Instant volume with minimal teasing :)

What's your fave hairstyle? :)

    Ahhh. That's why I don't want to get a flat iron. I know I'll get addicted and use it every day and burn my hair. Lol. Love the hair, though! So pretty! :)
