How to Do It

If you already have a wavy hair, then there’s absolutely no problem. Your ultimate goal would just to maintain such look, which may entail the use of wax or firm hold gel. You can also visit your hair stylist at least once a month.

It becomes a challenge if you don’t. The first thing you have to know is that to achieve a more obvious wavy hair, you need to have a much longer hair. There are not a lot of “hair tricks” that you can do with the shorter one.

Generally, though, here’s what you should do to achieve a wavy hair. First, you have to style your hair dry. This means that if you have stepped out of the shower, you have to use a hair dryer, if you’re in a hurry, or a towel if you can take some time. Remove as much water as possible.

Once the hair is already dry, you can then apply your gel. Sometimes men use wax, but the firm hold gel provides more function or use than the former. Nevertheless, you have to take note of the brand or the benefit you can get from it. There are others that do not hold the style of your hair for quite a long time.

Make sure that you can apply the gel from the roots to the tips of your hair. This is how you can achieve long-lasting hold on your hairstyle. You can also add more texture into your hair, making it wavier.

To make your hair appear wavier, you have two options. You can either use a brush, or you can just use your fingertips. Some men would use the former because it leaves their hands messy free. However, you would realize that you can have more power over the style of your hair if you’re going to do it with the latter:
