Do you have long hair? Then the trendy "Botticelli Waves" are a great way to stage them in a romantic way. Curious? We'll show you what the hairstyle trend is all about!
At the sight of the latest hair trend, the so-called "Botticelli Waves", we would like to jump on the trend wave right away. Have the popular "beach waves" had their day this summer? We strongly doubt that this will ever happen. But what is definitely undeniable: The romantic "Botticelli Waves" are making serious competition for the casual "Beach Waves" as the new favorite hairstyle.
They hardly require any styling effort, look super natural and immediately give long hair that certain something!
Curly and wavy hair is more popular than ever. So, if you're already naturally blessed with light waves or curls, you'll surely be happy that your natural hair texture is finally getting the attention it deserves. If you have straight hair, you can of course also conjure up "Beach Waves", curls, and the trendy "Botticelli Waves" in your hair with a little effort. We'll tell you how this works below.
But what actually distinguishes the "Botticelli Waves" from the hairstyle classic "Beach Waves"? Quite simply, "Beach Waves" are much lighter and more casual. They imitate the hair of the gentle waves created after swimming in the sea and blowing the salty sea air through it. That's why we love using salt spray to create that easy messy beach waves look at home. If we even reach for the straightening iron for them, then the waves are combed out well afterward - this is how the big waves are created. Afterward, Sea Salt Spray provides more grip.
With the "Botticelli Waves," the waves are closer together and more defined because smaller strands are twisted into curls than with the "Beach Waves". In addition, no styling products that provide structure or grip are required for the new curly hairstyle, such as salt spray does. As a result, the curls fall super softly over the shoulders and can also look a little frizzy! A hairstyle that's frizz-friendly? What more does a woman want?
The romantic curls look of the "Botticelli Waves" finds its origin in the famous paintings of the Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli, who is known for works like "The Birth of Venus". In his paintings, there are numerous women whose long, curly hair cascades down their shoulders and back in dreamlike waves.
What was staged so fantastically in one of the most famous paintings in art history, of course, we still have to try it out almost 600 years later! The pioneers of the "Botticelli Waves" trend are currently Bridgerton star Simone Ashley and Hollywood icon Sandra Bullock, who presented themselves on the red carpet with trend curls.
The best thing about the "Botticelli Waves"? You get the romantic look while you sleep! Before you go to bed, divide your long hair into equal sections. The smaller the sections, the narrower and more defined the "Botticelli Waves" will be in the end. Braid each strand into tight braids. If you have particularly thick hair, braid a few more braids. Then you go to sleep and open the individual braids the next morning. Loosen up the waves a bit by running your fingers through your hair. A hair powder can also contribute to the soft curls look.
For an even stronger end result, it is best to braid your hair when it is towel-dried and left in the braids to dry overnight.
If you have very thin and flat hair, the method with damp hair is always recommended. If your curls are still too limp the next morning, you can use a curling iron with an extra-thin barrel to give individual strands more defined curls. Comb it out afterward so that the "Botticelli Waves" fall gently over your shoulders.
This creates an absolute dream hairstyle overnight, which gives long, sometimes somewhat boring hair an absolute wow effect - it couldn't be easier!
