SUMMER WAVES HAIR TUTORIAL WITH NUME

BeautyTienlyn JacobsonComment

I haven’t done a lot of hair tutorials, and for a few reasons. First of all, I don’t really experiment with my hair that much. When I find something that works, I generally tend to stick to it. Secondly, I’m pretty low maintenance so unless I find a hairstyle that I don’t have to work too hard at, it’s pretty much just not going to happen. 

That’s what got me really excited about this NuMe Pentacle wand. Not only could I find a way to switch up my look for summer, but it;s a style that literally lasts for days - a HUGE feat considering my hair usually refuses to look good two days in a row. 

Oh and P.S. right now you can take $100 off any styling set from Pentacle (excluding the season catalog) plus get a free Argan Oil with the CODE: LOVETIENLYN

So here’s my first hair tutorial for carefree summer waves: 

A quick side note about the Pentacle - you can actually use it two ways. You can lock it closed like this for a really large barrel wand, which creates very subtle large curls (I like to use it to give my hair a mostly straight look with a little extra body)

NuMe Pentacle (get $100 off this or any other styling kit excluding the season catalog + a free Argan Oil with the code: LOVETIENLYN) Or you can unlock it and use it almost like a crimper to give your hair gorgeous waves. This is how I’ll be using it today for a more carefree summer look.

I started by prepping my hair with this Argan Oil from NuMe - it helps to moisturize my hair, keep it from getting frizzy, plus it protects it from the heat - which is especially important to me, because of my fine hair. I added about a dime size of Argan Oil, concentrating on the ends. If you have thicker or longer hair, you might want to add a tiny bit more.

Step 1: Pin half of your hair up so you can start with your bottom half.

Step 2: Take approximately 1 inch sections and slide them in between the top and bottom of the Pentacle. I like to start pretty high up for the bottom half of the hair and lower for the top half. If you are worried about burning yourself, you can use the protective glove that comes with the Pentacle). Press down and hold it for approximately a count of three. Note: I have fine hair and set the heat at about 350 degrees. If you have thicker hair, you might want to set it a little higher, but play around with it to see what works for you.

Step 3: Move the Pentacle down the section of your hair - make sure to start the next bit by lining up the top of the barrel with the bottom of the last waved bit that you just did. Work your way down to the end and repeat around your head in 1 inch sections. Note: I like to leave about a half inch straight at the end

Step 4: Take down the top half of your hair and start the process again at the front.

Note: I like start right at the cheekbone and no higher. This is a personal preference, but I have found that it’s a little more manageable if I do it like this.

Step 5: Once you are done run your fingers through your hair to loosen the waves.

This style looks great with a side part, or half up half down, but my favorite thing about it is that you can just let it run wild and it looks totally effortless and super sexy. Perfect for the summer!
