The Essence of Modern Glam Waves


Picture this: soft, cascading waves that exude elegance and sophistication, yet maintain a touch of modern flair.


That's the essence of modern glam waves – a timeless hairstyle that seamlessly blends classic beauty with contemporary allure.


Whether you're walking down the aisle or attending a glamorous soirée, these waves are the perfect choice for any occasion.



Mastering the Technique


Achieving the perfect set of modern glam waves may seem daunting at first, but fear not – with the right technique, anyone can become a pro. Start by prepping the hair with a heat protectant spray.


For hold, go through every other section of the hair with a medium to strong hold hair spray.  Let it sit for a few minutes, then brush it through.


Then you’ll just use a curling wand or a curling iron to create your waves with the trick being to curl all of the hair in the same direction.


This is what will create your wave when you brush the curls out. 


Don’t be afraid to brush through the curls a lot to make the wave pattern take shape.  It’s actually something you have to do to create your waves.

Faux Waves 


Another really cool thing you can do is to create the movement of a wave without it being a traditional wave at all!


Here, I incorporated a headband with scalloped shaping along the forehead to mimic a wave..


In this next one, I have simply created a large braid and draped it across her forehead where a wave would normally sit to create the illusion of a wave formation..


And in this last faux wave, I used bobby pins to create indentations where a glam wave would naturally sit.  It’s one of my favorite ways to creat a faux wave!!



The Bridal Styling Dilemma


When it comes to bridal styling, the pressure is on to find the perfect hairstyle that compliments your gown and overall bridal look.


Modern glam waves offer the ideal solution – they strike the perfect balance between sophistication and modernity, making them the go-to choice for many brides-to-be.


Whether you're opting for a classic ball gown or a sleek sheath dress, these waves are versatile enough to compliment any style. 


Easy Updos with a Glamorous Twist


Looking for an alternative to traditional updos? Modern glam waves can be effortlessly incorporated into easy updos for a look that's both chic and practical.


Simply gather your waves into a loose, low bun or twist them into a textured chignon for a relaxed yet glamorous vibe. 

Add some statement hair accessories like sparkling pins or vintage brooches to elevate the look and you've got yourself an easy updo with a glamorous twist!


Content Creation Magic


In the age of social media and digital storytelling, content creation has become more important than ever.


Whether you're a professional hairstylist looking to showcase your skills or a bride-to-be documenting your bridal journey, modern glam waves provide the perfect canvas for stunning content creation.


Experiment with different lighting, angles, and settings to capture the beauty of these waves in all their shine reflecting glory, and watch as your content captivates audiences far and wide! 


Embracing Your Inner Glam Goddess


At the end of the day, modern glam waves are more than just a hairstyle – they're a symbol of confidence, beauty, and self-expression.


So go ahead, unleash your inner glam goddess and embrace the magic of these timeless waves.


Whether you're walking down the aisle or flexing on the company party, know that with modern glam waves, you'll always be stealing the spotlight!!
