Long, Loose Waves

Sexy, center-parted waves have become a modern classic. For cascading curls like these, prep wet hair with a setting lotion like Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Smoothing Milk, $4. Blow-dry directing the nozzle downward over roots. Then wrap inch-wide sections of hair around a curling iron with a 1-1/4-inch barrel, concentrating on top layers that frame the face, says Kevin Murphy, an Australia-based stylist. Continue wrapping sections of hair around the iron in different directions so that all the pieces don't fall into the same curl formation. Flip head and shake out for a sexy, relaxed look.
