There's something so seductive about soft, voluminous waves. They're fun, flirty, romantic and perfect for a hot night out or red carpet affair. Some of our favorite celebs have been rather smitten with the sexy style lately — like LaLa Vasquez, who looked flawless in slightly wavy strands at the GLAAD Media Awards, and Ciara, who flaunted über-glam, bright blonde waves at the Valentino flagship store opening. Check out more beachy waves on our favorite celebs inside.
First made popular by Janet Jackson and Jody Watley in the '80s, the big, bodacious, body wave is officially back! The great thing about this sexy style? Soft, rippling waves flatter all hair lengths from short, Rihanna-esque crops to long locks, a la Joy Bryant. And the look is super-easy to create at home: Simply separate hair into sections (small if you want tight waves, bigger if you want a looser texture), and then wrap around the barrel of a one inch curling iron, keeping the barrel closed.
