How To: Loose Festival Hair Waves

The Festival Hair trend is basically a green light to try something new. Learn how to create a fab festival hair style with Karla Valenzuela.

Whether attending a show or just being inspired by one, Karla Valenzuela, Sam Villa Ambassador @kolor.me.karlaa, has an easy technique for creating loose festival hair waves perfect for accenting a colorful head scarf.  See it here.

  • Apply Redken Iron Shape 11 for heat protection and hold.
  • Insert a section of hair in a Sam Villa Signature Series Sleekr Professional Straightening Iron. Rock the iron up 3-4 times, then switch direction and rock it down 3-4 times to create a loose wave.
  • Repeat down the hair strand and all over the entire head.
  • Spray with Redken Triple Dry 15 for a dry, undone, textured finish that is still soft.
  • Pull out 2 face framing sections and pin up the rest of hair.
  • Place scarf over pinned up hair, leaving front sections out.  
  • Tie scarf and unclip back section.

This flat iron technique is a really easy way to create soft texture, and the head scarf is a cute way to add a fun festival vibe,” says Valenzuela.
