The Best Way To Keep Hair Looking Naturally Wavy For Fall

If taking inspiration from Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Beach Sweater” photoshoot isn’t enough to convince you to keep it beachy for fall, then maybe the ease of the following wavy-haired styling trick by Butterfly’s Jennifer Penny will do it for you…

If you ask us, one of the best things about going into the fall season is less humidity – or at least, humidity levels you can actually work with. Now that we are seeing less polished looks as a common thread for trends this upcoming season, wearing your hair’s natural waves is the best way to ensure you arrive in style.

“Braiding your hair damp will result in those beachy waves we all crave without having to spend the time and effort using a curling iron,” says Jennifer. After washing your hair, towel dry your lengths really well or let hair air dry until it feels slighty or somewhat damp to the touch. From roots to ends, comb through your favorite product for moisture and flexible hold, such Oribe’s “Gel Serum.” Follow the basic steps for creating a French braid (or learn from Jenn’s how-to tutorial) and then sleep on it! The next morning, when your hair is dry, take out the braid and comb through the texture with your fingers. Hit any unruly strands with the hair dryer for a few seconds, and if you need a little extra shine or if you want to enhance the wave, apply a beach spray such as “Après Beach” by Oribe for that extra touch.
