Daytime Effortless Waves

Step One

Starting with freshly blowdried hair, section off the bottom portion of your hair. Tie the remainder of the hair up in a hair tie or scrunchie for easy access. 

Step Two

Using a 1 1/2 inch curly wand, begin to curl small sections of hair. When curling, be sure to curl the pieces away from your face and leave out about 1 inch of the hair at the bottom for a more piecey and effortless look.

Quick Tip: If you have shorter hair, be sure to leave a 1 inch section out at the bottom of the curl to maintain some length.

Step Three

One your full head of hair is curled, lightly mist your hair with a wave spray of your choice. Then, use your fingers to break up the curls and add volume at the roots.

Date Night Glam

Step One

Section off the bottom of your hair, clipping the rest of your hair out of the way. With this bottom section of hair, braid the strand into a small, tight braid and pin to the back of your head. This will prevent your shorter layers from peaking through when adding your Luxy Hair extensions.

Step Two

Clip two three-clip wefts of Luxy Hair extensions in at the base of your head and use your 1 1/2 inch curling wand to blend in your natural hair with the extensions. Continue sectioning off your hair, adding clip-in extensions, and blending with a curling wand until your entire set of Luxy hair extensions have been added. 

Step Three

Clip two three-clip wefts of Luxy Hair extensions in at the base of your head and use your 1 1/2 inch curling wand to blend in your natural hair with the extensions. Continue sectioning off your hair, adding clip-in extensions, and blending with a curling wand until your entire set of Luxy hair extensions have been added. 

Quick Tip: Pre-curl your extensions so you can quickly clip them in to take your look from day to night.

Step Four

Finish off your curls by spraying your hair with hairspray and smoothing out everything with a brush. 

Step Five

To elevate your look for a romantic date night, smooth the left side of your hair to the side of your head and secure with three sparkly bobby pins for some extra glamour. 

Step Six

Play up the old Hollywood vibes of this look by adding a bold lipstick in a vampy shade. So romantic!

There you have it - a simple way to transform your everyday curls into a romantic date night look. Now there's no excuse to say no to that cute guy who invited you out for drinks after work ;)
