Long wavy hair: natural glamour

As elegant and feminine as Hollywood waves, but far more natural-looking, long waves are a regular visitor to the red carpet. Let's have a closer look at this undulating style that we love so much...

Dream locks are wavy ones

There's no use in hiding it, this look is a universal winner: we've all dreamt at least once of wearing these mermaid waves with pride. This hypnotic hairstyle has the gift of combining the beauty of natural wavy movement with the precision of a celebrity red carpet hairstyle. This is why, as L'Oréal Professionnel hairstylist Delphine Courteille confirms, "We all love it!"

A glamorous yet natural evening look

The good news is that, not only do we all love this look, but it also suits all face shapes, all types of hair, and all colors. Neither too voluminous nor too long, it doesn't add weight to cheek bones or lengthen the face. These elegant and feminine waves are therefore perfect for a glamorous and natural evening look that's flattering to all shapes.

A temporary hairstyle? Not necessarily...

Long waves can have an increased life-span with the help of texturizing products and some skilled styling, but now it's possible to keep them for far longer. Hair salons now offer a contemporary "Beach Wave" effect, far more natural-looking than previous versions, which can last up to 8 weeks.
