(PHOTOS) How To Get Effortless Waves Without Heat Styling

There are a small percentage of women that seem to get effortless and voluminous hair without having to spend a ton of time styling it. Ugh. For the rest of us that aren’t born with hair like that, it’s almost obnoxious to look at!  But, I do have a sneaky trick that will give those ladies a run for their money in the “effortless hair” department. Below is the lazy girl’s way to get lived-in, effortless waves without a single hot tool.  Try this tutorial out at night after you wash your hair; it requires you to sleep on it!



Step 1: Wash your hair and let it air dry most of the way. Hair should be ever-so-slightly damp. Secure your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head. Pulling a little volume at the front of your hair creates a nice bend.

Step 2: Twist ponytail and secure into a bun.


Step 3: Once bun is secured, get some ZZZs. Sleep on the bun all night long.


Step 4: In the morning, take your hair down and shake your locks out upside down. Spray your hair with texturizing dry shampoo and scrunch with your hands.

Voila! You’re all set for the day with sexy, lived-in locks!
