If you have naturally wavy hair, you can create several very beautiful hairstyles, both formal and informal. And if you don’t have naturally wavy hair, there are several easy techniques to curl your hair into one of these gorgeous wavy hairstyles below.

Whether you have long, short or medium length hair, there are tons of options to choose from, whether it’s a hairstyle for a party or ceremony, an evening out or everyday.

Hairstyles with water waves

Water waves are defined as S-shaped waves that can be worn flat on the head or loose on medium to long hair. The style first appeared in the 1920s to jazz up the bob style of fun-loving flappers. Today, water waves for short and long hair are back in more ways than we can imagine.

Short hair

This style is performed with the help of gel and fingers, which is why they are also known as finger waves. This type of hairstyle can be done on very short hair and, by the way, it looks very glamorous.

Medium length

If you have medium length hair, you can choose the sole water waves. There are several very simple techniques using an iron or curling iron to achieve them.

Long hair

If you want a hairstyle that will make your long hair look very shiny and healthy, this is an excellent option.

The waves can be soft and defined as we saw in the images above, or they can look a little more messy as we see in the image below.

Cascading Waves

The cascade hairstyle is one of the most beautiful and elegant hairstyles for medium or long hair. Pick up a section of hair on each side of the head and braid them, leaving a strand free to pull down. The ponytails should meet at the back of the head at some point. It’s very easy to do.

Medium length

It’s a perfect hairstyle to show off the waves.

Long hair

Half collected with twisted locks

Many half up hairstyles are great for being on trend. They look very modern and elegant and are widely used nowadays. For a natural look, blow dry your hair and lightly curl the ends to create soft, natural waves.

If you have straight hair, you should create waves with either a flat iron or a curling iron before you start styling. From the front, part your hair into small sections. Twist each strand from root to tip, alternate them and secure with bobby pins at the back of your head so they don’t show. Apply some hairspray. With a hair accessory you can give it a subtle, festive touch.

Crown of braids with waves

If you like to keep your hair open, a crown braid might be a perfect choice. For example, if you are going to be a bridesmaid but hate updos, this hairstyle is perfect for you. Braids accompanied by wavy hair look gorgeous. You can use herringbone, french braids, dutch braids or whatever you like.
