How To Create Effortless Lived-in Textured Styles

Updated: Sep 11, 2020

Hey, I'm Shanon! I'm a cutting & lived-in color specialist at DeCola Salon. I love complimenting hair of all lengths and texture with undone wavy finishes that can instantly modernize your look.


I wanted to include a short breakdown of my signature lived-in waves step by step, as well as recommend products along the way for all your hair needs. This look was created with a flat-iron but could easily be translated with most hot-tools.

Tip #1: Check Your Heat


For ANY hot tool check your heat, particularly with wavy looks I recommend between 320-350° for most hair types. If you experience "skipping" or don't feel like the hair is gliding easily through your flat-iron, turn the temperature down.
