Want to know how to get Hollywood waves? Top TRESemmé hairstylist Jeanie Syfu reveals the tricks of the trade with this six-step tutorial. Pin-up-ready, glam curls can be yours in an instant.
Step 1: Wash and condition
Apply TRESemmé Pro Pure Damage Recovery Shampoo to wet hair, work in thoroughly and rinse. Apply TRESemmé Pro Pure Damage Recovery Conditioner to leave your hair looking and feeling healthy and smooth. Made with 0% silicones, parabens or dyes, this system helps shield hair from visible damage so it's ready for styling.
Step 2: Add extra texture and hold
To avoid frizz, air-dry your tresses using a T-shirt or microfiber towel. Moisture is important to keep your hair under control, so work a palmful of TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Mousse from root to tip to avoid frizz and help add extra texture and hold. Then, gently detangle it with a wide-tooth comb.
Step 3: Blow-dry
Apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Defense Spray to reduce thermal damage and enhance your hair’s natural shine. Blow-dry your hair in sections with a round brush, starting from the root and angling upwards to create volume.
Step 4: Get the classic ‘S’ wave
In order to get the classic ‘S’ shape associated with Hollywood glamor, you’ll need to use a curling iron. Take a one-and-a-half-inch curling wand and curl your hair in sections. As you create each curl, place it on your palm and let it cool, then gently pin it to your head using sectioning clips. Leave to cool completely to set the wave.
Step 5: Release your curls
Once cooled, release the clips and pull down each curl gently. This should give you perfect control, but if you find the curls a little tight or stiff, use a wide toothed comb to soften them, lightly combing through your waves.
Step 6: And spray
Mist over TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray to secure the bounce – the weightless formulation helps hold your look without stiffness.
And there you go! You’re ready to show up and show off – Hollywood style!
