The New Wave

Other curly styles have also gotten an upgrade recently. The classic ringlet curl has grown up. Instead of tight, small circles, the curls are more tousled and almost frizzy while still creating a defined look. This type of look is done with a tapered curling wand. The “curl and kick” look, loosely named by Tony Gordon, Salon Owner and Master Stylist at Gordon Salons, is much more commercial and ready to wear than the old-style version of these curls. It’s less done-up and more casual. And anybody can wear it.
“I use a Black Diamond straightener to curl the hair,” Alexis Lopez, Professional Stylist at Gordon Salon in Wilmette said about how she gets a beachy wave with her clients. “By using the straightener, some ends are straight, but it gives it a very natural all day look.”
Beachy waves seem to be the winning look.
