This Hair Trend Is Always In – & It's So Easy To Pull Off

I still distinctly remember my most-coveted hairstyles as a tiny tot. Moesha's box braids were the top, while Whitney Houston's spiral curls from her Cinderella remake were up there, too. And curls? Literally anyone's big, sausage-y, old Hollywood-style waves piqued my interest.
Moral of the story: There are few things classier than big ol' cascading curls, either swept to one side, over the shoulder to show off your dangling earrings, or messed up a la Rihanna. It seems like Hollywood — as well as a few designers — agree, as we've seen stars with huge curls on the red carpet and down the runway more and more lately. Like a LBD or a Levi's jean jacket, this is one look that will never go out of style.

To recreate any wavy look, divide your hair into sections. Spray each section with a holding spray before wrapping it around the iron, then set your waves by creating pin curls. When you take them out, softly brush through with a comb or boar-bristle brush. Finish with a shine spray, and hit the red carpet! (Or, you know, just watch our video tutorial above.)
