Who doesn’t love curls? Whether you’re into perfect Carrie Bradshaw ringlets or smooth cascading locks like Kate Middleton, wavy hair is incredibly versatile. For me, glamorous waves are my favorite hairstyle—they’re timeless and stylish. So, how do I get ’em? Read on for a step-by-step tutorial!

To capitalize on my natural curls, I start with freshly-washed hair and my favorite TRESemmé products. I always use shampoo and two rounds of conditioner for added moisture.

This is followed by mousse to add body and some smoothing serum. To help protect my hair from the heat of the blow dryer and curling iron, I make sure to use a thermal protection product. Now I’m ready to start the glam treatment.

First, I like to lay out all of my tools. A good heat protector, flat brush, and diffuser are my go-tos.

Once my hair is all combed out, it's time to start my blowout.

Blow drying my hair by sections with a large, round natural brush gives me the sleekest results.

Once my hair is straight, it's time to start the curls! 

Going piece by piece, I'll wrap one-inch sections around a curling barrel and then clamp down and hold for 10-15 seconds before releasing.

Once my hair is tightly curled, I finger comb it loose to achieve easy waves.

I also like to shake my curls loose to diffuse some of the heat.

Spraying my hair with holding spray is one of the final steps. It protects from frizz and keeps my locks in place. I'm totally obsessed with TRESemme's Tres Two Extra Hold Hair Spray. It holds my style in place without making it sticky or stiff.

The final look: I'm ready for date night!
