Do you want to achieve perfect, voluminous waves without the guilt of using a curling iron? Look no further! These tips and tricks will have your hair looking perfectly tousled and the best part is it requires less than 5 minutes of your time. Here are some quick ways to achieve perfect summer waves with no heat required!

Braid: Braids are not just for lazy days! If you want to keep it simple and fast, but still achieve tousled waves for the next day, braids are the way to go. Not only is this style heat free – it’s also amazing for your hair health and prevents breakage. To achieve this look, start with damp hair and braid into two sections. Leave in overnight, and when you wake in the morning, simply take out the braid and spray with your favorite hairspray!

Twists: Twists will give your hair a runway look you’ve always dreamed of! This hairstyle is also something you can do right before bed, and take out right before you rush out the door the next morning. Simply take 10-12 small sections of slightly damp hair, twist each section as tight as you can and wrap into a small bun. Pin with a clip or a small rubber band. Continue this all over your head until each section is wrapped. Get your beauty sleep, and when you wake in the morning, unwrap the buns for voluminous soft curls!

Top Knot: Want to squeeze in a morning yoga class before work? The top knot is the style for you! Not only will this keep your hair out of the way while you run errands, but when you take your bun out you will have glamorous curls to show. Start with slightly damp or dry hair, brush all hair to the crown of the head, then simply twist all hair together. Simply twist the hair into a tight bun and spray with a flexible hairspray. Leave in overnight, or through your daily errands. Then remove hair tie and shake out your hair for loose waves!

Curlers: From foam rollers to velcro! Curlers have been around for centuries but they are still around for a reason. Achieve a tighter more Hollywood curl with this iconic technique! Not only are these curls neat but they will be sure to stay all day. Simply start with freshly washed, towel-dried hair and simply roll the curlers from the bottom of the hair to the root. Leave for a few hours while you get ready for your day or leave in at night. Finish with hairspray for a glam look!

Heatless Headband Waves: Make use of your older headbands and scarfs with this awesome technique. Not only will this take under 5 minutes, but it’s a wearable look while you wait for the curls to form! Start with knot free hair and simply put on your headband or wrapped up scarf on your head, make sure not to tuck the headband under your hair. Then simply braid your hair through the headband, acting as if the headband was the third section of hair in your braid. Tie this style once you reach the end of your hair. Leave in through the day or sleep in it to wake with shiny, knot free curls!
