Video: How To Get Free People Model Waves

Have you ever looked at our website or catalogs and wondered how the models got such perfect, wavy hair (see here, and here)? I know I have, so we asked hair stylist Amy Farid (the genius behind the stunning locks in several of our catalogs) to share her secrets! Watch the tutorial as Amy demonstrates how to get perfect model waves on one of our Free People girls.

What you need to get the look:

1) Surf spray – Amy swears by Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray – or you can make your own

2) A curling iron that has a 1-inch barrel or thicker (the thicker the barrel, the larger the waves)

3) A blow drier

this is cute but there is one problem…… i hate blow drying my hair. can i let it dry naturally and still get those beautiful waves?

Hi Michaela! You can certainly let your hair dry naturally! That is my favorite way of doing this style. Drying it with a blowdryer just speeds up the process. I still recommend putting in some kind of STYLING product while its still wet so it will hold the style and enhance texture! Good Luck!

Any tips to help people with really straight hair get this look? I’ve tried a lot of different products, but it tends to just go back straight after a few minutes…

@Kristin – i have pretty straight hair too and the best thing i’ve found to help my hair not go right back to straight is just to style when my hair is not 100% clean. just try the day after you’ve washed it!
