How to Get Loose Waves

Is Ciara's Pregnancy the Secret to Her Lustrous Locks?

It may look like Ciara rolled out of bed with those perfect waves, but chances are it took a little bit of work to make carefree look so good. And the fact that it was just announced that she's pregnant (major congrats!) may be the secret to her shiny strands.

The singer wore this casual style at the Calvin Klein Collection afterparty during Milan Men's Fashion Week this weekend. These waves are easy to re-create at home, but you'll need a curling iron at the very least. We recommend using a big-barrel iron (between one and two inches) to get a similar wave pattern. Wrap a one-inch section of hair around the iron, leaving the ends straight. When you come to the next section, wrap hair in the opposite direction. Finger-comb hair, and finish with hair spray. While this style will look amazing immediately after it's done, you'll have to party for a few hours to really get Ciara's lived-in look.
