Most women have some natural wave in their hair. If you have a round face, such as Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz, pictured here, let your natural waves out.

Here are some tips:

  1. This works on all hair lengths, even super short cuts, but it is most flattering on round faces with hair that's longer than the chin.
  2. Wash hair.
  3. Apply a salt spray and comb it through hair. I like Bumble and Bumble spray or you can make your own. See How to Make Salt Spray.
  4. Let hair air dry. As it's drying, take your hair into your palm and squeeze it. This allows your natural wave to come out. so natural waves come out.

Once hair is dried, you can play with your hair, twisting it and pinning it back or creating little braids on the sides and pinning them back.
