    DIY Retro Waves in 4 Easy Steps

    1. Spritz a setting spray throughout your strands.
    2. Part your hair deep to one side. Then use hot rollers to roll your hair forward toward your face. Allow your hair to cool completely before unrolling. 
    3. Once you have removed your hair from the rollers, take a soft bristled brush and gently brush your hair to create into soft, retro waves. 
    4. Spray a light hold hairspray all over your hairstyle to help it stay in place all night long.

    How to Create a Beautiful Braided Bun 

    1. Pull all your hair back into a sleek ponytail.
    2. Then, leaving out a small section out for braiding, wrap the hair from the ponytail around the elastic to create a bun. Secure the bun with two crisscrossed bobby pins or more if needed.
    3. Braid the small section of hair that was left out, and wrap the braid around the bun. Secure the braid to the bun with a few bobby pins.
    4. Spray the hairstyle with a firm hold hairspray to complete your beautiful look.
