Get the perfect waves with Kevin Murphy

Just because beach weather is almost over, it doesn’t mean you can’t have the best waves in town. In honour of one of our longtime favourite brands, we’ve created a tutorial on getting those curls that will be turning heads.

Using only Kevin Murphy products, we’ve found a super easy way for you to achieve those Victoria’s Secret waves right in the comfort of your own home. Perfectly bouncy, effortless and full of volume - what more could you ask for? It's also super easy and pretty quick as well!

Check out our video with Leah Rose Hair from Chrystalla Hair and a breakdown of the steps below.

 

 

Step 1

Give your hair a good spritz with Kevin Murphy Un.Tangled.

This is a leave-in conditioner that has the benefit of being a heat protectant as well so you can count on it to keep your hair nice and smooth. It detangles, strengthens and restores hair thanks to its complex blend of nourishing fruit extracts. Spray it into wet or dry hair, give it a comb through to distribute the product and heat style away. Plus, it smells amazing!

Step 2

Separate your hair into vertical  sections. If your hair is thicker, divide it in half from ear to ear and clip away the top part.

Step 3

Place the Silver Bullet Keratin 230 Titanium Hair Straightener onto the first section at about eye level. Clamp the hair and rotate the straightener slightly. Slide the iron along the strand and continue to rotate the iron bit by bit. Remember to keep tension on the hair.

This straightener is the answer to all your straightening and curling with its titanium floating plates that will  easily glide through even the thickest and coarsest of hair.

Step 4

Repeat Step 3 around the other sections of hair. If you’ve clipped the top half of your hair, release it once you’ve finished curling the bottom half and repeat.

Step 5

Let your hair cool down completely. Then brush through it with a wide toothed comb or your fingers.

Step 6

Sprinkle Kevin Murphy Powder.Puff Volumising Powder onto the roots of your hair. Use a small comb to back comb the hair for instant volume.

This little miracle worker is an instant hit of volume but also provides a dry matte texture for the perfect piecy look in layered hair and curls. All you need is to give it a little rub to reactivate it during the day.

Step 7

Spray Kevin Murphy Hair.Resort.Spray through your hair for that effortless beach wave feel.

This spray has long been a must-have of the Kevin Murphy range, designed to re-create Kevin’s signature beach waves. Except it’s pumped full of wheat amino acids and hydrolised silk to ensure that your hair is silky-smooth and shiny unlike that crunchy texture you get after you get out of the sea. It’ll leave you smelling delicious as well.

Step 8

Seal the deal with a healthy spritz of Kevin Murphy Doo.Over hairspray.

This dry finishing spray creates a light hold that still gives you texture and movement, which is super important when it comes to waves.

This week, we’re also giving away a free Kevin Murphy shampoo of your choice when you buy 2 Kevin Murphy products. We’ll take a bottle of that Angel.Rinse, thanks!
