How To: 5-Minute Waves for the Holidays

Big, lovely waves are perfect for the holidays, and even better when they only take 5 minutes! This look is fast to achieve and ultra voluminous! Here’s how to get it:





  • Run your hands through your hair, smoothing it out and placing all of your hair into a high ponytail. Secure with a hair elastic.
  • Using your curling iron with the 1.25 inch barrel (bigger barrel to work with thicker sections of hair and ultimately speed up the process!), begin with the first section. Gather it around the barrel, holding for 12-15 seconds and then slowly release it into your palm. Then, set the curl folded into a clip. Note: Anytime you’re working with a larger barrel and you just let the curl drop, it will loosen fast and unravel within the hour. This is why it’s important to SET the curls!
  • Move on through each section until your entire ponytail has been curled. This would usually amount to 5-7 big curls. Once you’re finished, apply a light coating of your ‘Hold it Right There Hairspray’ and let your hair set for about 10 minutes.
  • If using your Leyla Milani Hair Extensions, take this time now to repeat the curling process with the hair extensions (not yet clipped in). Let these curls set for 10 minutes as well.
  • Now you’re ready to release your curls and remove your ponytail. You’ll notice big, voluminous waves! Now it’s also time to release the curls in your hair extensions and clip them into your locks.
  • Last, you’re going to gently smooth out your waves using the ‘Miracle Brush’ to make the waves appear more natural and effortless.


Happy Holidays!
