When it comes to waves hairstyles, the options are endless. There are many different ways one can style and express their unique hair pattern by choosing a specific waves haircut. Waves require maintenance, and different lengths and types of hair will need different products and upkeep. No matter what, a successful wave process is attained with the right tools: A high quality Superior Durag, hair butter and wave shampoo, wave combs and wave caps, as well as patience and diligence. Keep reading for the 5 Best Waves Haircuts to attempt during the wave process.
1. Deep 360 Waves
Deep 360 waves are one of the most favorable and popular hairstyles, but it requires substantial upkeep. Consistent brushing with a high quality Wave Comb and regularly wearing a Superior Durag are key to the process. To get 360 waves that are deep, the hair must be cut short and then left to grow out for weeks.
2. Deep 540 Waves
Deep 540 waves are achieved in a similar fashion to 360 waves, however, they are slanted. The slant can be achieved by brushing downwards and at an angle, so as to cultivate the slant and 540 degree waves pattern. Just like deep 360 waves, this hairstyle must be maintained with great discipline and left to grow out after the initial short cut.
3. Taper Mid Fade With Waves
A mid fade with waves offers short hair on the sides and back of the head, while the top is grown out longer. A mid taper or skin fade can be achieved with this hairstyle, depending on how short the hair is. The cut is started at a mid level, and a line up works to shape the edges of the hair for a clean-cut, tapered look.
4. Taper High Fade With Waves
The high fade with waves is a challenging and rewarding cut to try. The high fade begins near the top of the head and tapers the hair quickly for a very short haircut, which looks edgy and clean. One can can choose to attempt a high taper or high bald fade, and then on the waves pattern (180, 360, etc.).
5. Waves With Beard
A waves haircut with a beard complement each other and are a popular masculine hairstyle. A fade haircut in between the hair and the beard works to create a high-contrast cut. While maintaining the waves pattern, the facial hair must be upkept too! Keep your facial hair trimmed, groomed and clean with regular cuts and high quality beard moisturizing products and shampoo.
