Wave Soft waves can provide just
the right playfulness to perfect
your spring season prom or
runway ready hairstyle
un, playful and carefree should be the ﬁrst words that
come to mind when you think of spring hairstyles. Most
hairstyles in the spring are inspired by the fresh fashion
trends that are in turn inspired by the weather changing
around us. In the spring, it is time to let down the clas-
sic up styles and let the hair ﬂow more freely. Though the hairstyles
are more relaxed, they are still well-suited for any formal occasion.
Our model Jessica’s classic soft waves are perfect for the spring.
This look is so current throughout the fashion industry, and it is
always a great statement because it is also timeless. The hairstyle
compliments any formal gown and is always stunning on any
woman. Waves have been popular all over red carpet events and
major magazines year after year.
This look is one of my all-time favorites, because it reminds me
of some of Hollywood’s most famous starlets of the 1940s and 50s.
Most retro hairstyles tend to always stay in a rotation, just like
fashion. The soft waves make most women feel like timeless beau-
ties, and they are stunning on any woman. Although the look is a
reﬂection of hairstyles from the past, it is still so fresh and young.
I love to see it worn on occasions such as a prom.
The soft waves are very easy to create. The main thing you do
not want to do is go for perfect and stiff hair. The hair should look
touchable and light afterwards. When creating the style, use a larg-
er curling iron or hot rollers preferably no smaller than one-inch
wide. Remember that the smaller the curl, the tighter the wave.
The waves are achieved by creating basic curls and combing and
brushing for your desired result. This is simple to create while
seeming incredibly intricate.
Prom is always a great occasion to wear this hairstyle, because
prom fashion is fun and always youthful. What better way to
show your style off than by letting your hair down? This hairstyle
tends to be a standout at formal events because it isn’t a typical
up style. The classic waves only add to your natural beauty and
prom fashion. The style makes a statement and is certainly sure
to turn heads.
