Waves are everywhere. Whether they be from the beach or the Hollywood red carpet, they continue to give a soft, natural-looking allure to our hairstyles with elegance and femininity. Here are three wavy looks for next summer that you need to start trying right now!

The advantage of the timing of ready-to-wear and haute couture runway shows is that they give us the opportunity to get a peek into the future. And, while we can't be 100% certain whether next summer will be all about wavy hair or not, why not give the trend a try now, just in case?

Seventies waves

Halfway between the iconic 70s retro look and a classic wavy style, these Seventies waves, styled on layered hair with long curtain bangs, are among the next must-have hairstyles. Full of character, this style gives you guaranteed charm.

Flaves

A contraction of "flat" and "waves", flaves are a new style, a cross between smooth hair and classic waves. We love the way the roots are smooth but the wavy locks frame the face just as effectively as a long (long bob) or long hair, thanks to precise styling techniques.

The wob

The short wavy bob, aka the wob, is proof that short hair can work wonderful waves just as well as long locks. Volume is created using a spray or powder-based texturizing product. The trend looks like it won't slow down any time before summer 2016, so don't be afraid to go short, it doesn't mean waving goodbye to your waves!
