Retro Waves

High-impact retro waves can be fuss-free. Start by blow-drying damp hair with a smoothing lotion—try John Frieda Root Awakening Strength Restoring Smoothing Lotion, $6.50. If your hair is curly, use fingers to gently pull out some of the natural springing ringlets as you dry. For naturally straight locks, you need to build texture, says Murphy. Part hair down the middle, and start wrapping wide sections of hair around a 1-1/4-inch curling iron—only curl up to about eye level. Immediately after, wrap the section around a medium-size roller to set the look, he says. Wait 10 minutes, comb through, and spritz with hairspray. A good one: Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity Hairspray, $17.
