How to: Ruffian’s soft waves

This hairstyle should be started with dry hair. If you have damp hair, let it dry naturally or – if you’re in a hurry – dry it off with a blow dryer but make sure the setting isn’t too hot because that might cause damage to your hair.
Create a low side part. Keep in mind that this look should be casual so no need to make it really clean or strong.
Take a curling iron and curl your hair section by section (a 1-2 inch section is fine). Once you’ve done a curl, secure it to the head with a pin to let it set.

Do the previous step over and over until you’ve finished all sections of your hair. Once done, take the pins out and let your curls down.
To create the soft waves, take a paddle brush and use that to brush through your hair.
Finish this look off by misting on some hairspray like CATWALK by TIGI Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray. This will add gloss into your hairstyle.
