How To Create Loose Waves- A Video Tutorial

Hello friends,

As many of you have complimented me on multiple occasions on how I style my hair and asked for a tutorial, today I am sharing with you a video on how to achieve this hairstyle. I hope you enjoy watching it and find my tips useful!

Thank you for watching. Don’t forget to check the other videos on my YouTube channel. If you’d like to see more videos or tutorials from me in the future, please let me know!

    I couldn’t even complete watching the vid without pausing to tell you that I friggin’ LOVE YOUR CUT!!! Seriously! I honestly couldn’t see the cut very well while it was curled, but straight? Holy moly, Batman! It really is everything! And the color? Dude, whoever does your hair should be your stylist for the rest of your life. And, if I were white (hope that doesn’t offend you), I’d get YOUR HAIR CUT & STYLE! Ok, now back to our regularly scheduled program to finish watching the vid.
    P.S. I got my hair styled yesterday. I’ll send pics (if I can get a cute selfie 🙂

      Kishia, you just made my day. I was too busy to reply right away but I was reading your comment and every word made me smile. Thank you! Wait till you see my hair straight when it’s actually styled, it looks better! My hair stylist is absolutely great and the fact that she is usually booked 2 months in advance only confirms that!

      I hope you enjoyed the video and I can’t wait to see your hair! Is there ever a selfie you don’t look cute in? I yet have to see one!

      • Kishia says:

        Can’t believe your hair looks THIS good + even better when styled & straightened. And I meant every word I said. This style really becomes you. I’ll email you a pic of my new hair. It only takes, like, 20 selfies for me to find the right one. Lol 🙂

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Hi Natasja. Thank you sooo much. I love how versatile this haircut is and I really like wearing it both straight and wavy.

      As far as the video, I just used two different cameras-one in the front, one in the back and just synchronized them together after recording. I am glad you liked it!

    Your hair cut is sooooo pretty! I am planning to cut the same length tomorrow as I am so sick of my long hair however, I have very thin and fine hair so might not look good as yours.

    You made the curling looks so darn easy, Agata. I’ve tried this same technique but never worked out that well for me.

      Thank you so much Shireen! I have a hard time using a regular curling iron with a clip so the wand works perfect for me and it’s really easy. Once you practice a few times, it comes naturally. My hair is really thick so I set the temp to pretty high too. I hope you can practice again maybe looking at my video. I’d be flattered! 😉

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Hi Dee, thanks a lot!

      I just started using After Party after I got this hair cut but how did I not know about it before?? I love it and the smell is amazing too!

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Thanks, Jaa! It was a lot of work but I think it was worth it and I enjoy video editing a lot! Let me know if the tips worked for you.

        Trying to grow it,but always end up with a lob, LOL. This time is longer though, pass my shoulders, and got some layering on it. I have it wavy/curly so normally the only thing I can handle is putting leave-in conditioner on it and let it air dry, haha. And when it gets dirty, BRAIDS. LOTS OF BRAIDS.
