How to create hollywood glam waves

    Old Hollywood glamour never goes out of style. Whether it’s the red lip, a bold slick of eyeliner or a classic set of tumbling Hollywood waves, there's a lot to love about this iconic look. If you want to style classic Hollywood glam waves, you’ve come to the right place!

    Using professional-quality products, you can land this stylish, sophisticated look from the comfort of your own home. Top TRESemmé hairstylist Jeanie Syfu reveals the tricks of the trade with this six-step Hollywood waves tutorial below. Pin-up-ready, glam curls: yours in an instant.

    Step 1: Prepare your hair by washing with TRESemmé Pro Pure Damage Shampoo and Conditioner. Made with 0% silicones, parabens, or dyes, this system helps shield hair from visible damage so it's ready for styling.

    Step 2: Towel dry your tresses and work a palmful of TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray from root to tip to help add extra texture and hold.

    Step 3: Blow dry your hair in sections with a round brush, starting from the root and angling upwards to create volume. In order to get the classic ‘S’ wave shape associated with the glamor of Hollywood, you’ll need to use a curling iron. Take a 1.5 inch curling wand and curl your hair in sections. As you create each curl, take it in your palm and let it cool, then gently clip to your head using sectioning clips. Leave to cool completely to set the wave.

    Step 4: 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.

    Step 5: Mist over TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Level 4 Extend to secure the bounce – the weightless formulation helps hold your look without stiffness. 

    And there you go! Hollywood glam waves ready to show up and show off from home.
