photos, video and post by alex michael may. style created by cynthia marie. music: home again blues by aileen stanley.

soft, flowing waves are the ultimate in femininity and a perfect summer style for any occasion. they seem so effortless and romantic and personally, face-framing wings make me feel beautiful and just together.
it can be difficult to achieve the waves with a curling iron, and it’s a fine line between curly and shirley temple beachy, so cynthia and i thought creating flat-iron waves would be a perfect way to kick off our essential tools guide, where we will share the building blocks to good styling technique. once you master a few simple tricks, you can pull off nearly any style!
back to today’s tutorial, it’s also awesome  (and economical!) to get multiple looks with one tool, so without further ado i give you making waves! oh, and see that little video down there? please watch! it’s my first project after having taken blogshop video on monday. needless to say i was prrrettty excited to share it with you 🙂
