Even though winter is upon us, it's beneficial to give your hair a break from heat styling every now and then, especially as your strands are more vulnerable to breakage and split ends at this time of year. Luckily, princess waves are one of the many easy hairstyles you can do without heat, and we have a tutorial to help you get the look!

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with freshly washed, towel-dried hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout.

Step 2
Part your hair in the middle, then divide your hair into four roughly equal sections. There should be two sections on either side of your part.

Step 3
Braid each section of hair. Start level with the tips of your eyebrows and work all the way down to the ends, then tie. Leave the braids to air dry naturally or, if you can, leave them in overnight while you sleep.

Step 4
Untie the braids and let them loose, then shake your fingers down through your locks to break up the newly-revealed waves.

Step 5
Run a wide-tooth comb through your hair, then set your new wavy style with a generous veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray. This will give your waves great hold and seal your hair against the elements.

When you're done, you can accessorize this style with a pretty headband, pin it back into a half-up 'do, or simply leave it as it is. It's totally up to you!
