Ananya, Deepika, Kareena LOVE This Hairstyle

July 13, 2022 12:36 IST

It's time to say goodbye to boring straight hair. Scandi Waves are here.

An improvised version of the '90s crimped hair, it's about creating flattering beach-like waves around your face. 

The perfect hairstyle for the monsoon, it doesn't require much effort.

Dressed in a shimmering silver cocktail dress, she created magic with Scandi Waves.
Incidentally, the look works well for both short and long hair. 
The trick is to decide where you want to start the wave.

If you want to get the look right, you can braid towel-dried hair. After a couple of hours, run your fingers through it to open up the braids.
Or use a wave iron for a more polished feel.
