Love S wave hair? So do we! Find out how to nail this look with a quick tutorial by Matthew Collins, styling ambassador for Dyson Canada.
This year at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Collins had the opportunity to style Chloe Bennett’s hair for the premiere of Abominable.
The chic “S” wave continues to be a big trend through the fall and winter seasons. Learn how to recreate this look for your clients for the holidays!
Matt Collins’ signature “S” wave – how to get the look
- To begin, prep the hair with a pea size drop of oil and put that through the mids to ends.
- Then, spray texture through the roots to the ends and brush through with a wide tooth comb.
- Take your Supersonic on medium heat and medium speed and smooth out the cuticle of the hair using the smoothing nozzle and a paddle brush to create a softness. I then spray again using a damper texture spray to give it a bit more grip and use Supersonic with the diffuser attachment to quickly dry that texture spray into the hair without disrupting the smoothness.
- Once prepped, you can then go in with a curling wand or your Dyson Airwrap styler. I prefer using Airwrap because it doesn’t compress the curl (make it flat) like a hot wand does and of course, you don’t get the heat damage.
- Section the hair into two layers and clip up the top layer whilst you work on the bottom half first. You may need to do more layers if you have thicker hair.
- Turn the Airwrap upside down, as if you were using it like a regular tong/wand, and wrap a 1-2 inch section of the hair around the barrel. Turn the Airwrap on to high heat and high speed until the hair is completely dry and then turn it off before releasing the curl.
- Repeat for each section and one you’ve done the whole head, brush out the curls to create that natural S wave. Finish with hairspray to set the look.
