Are you wearing straight extensions and looking for a change? Many celebrities such as Beyonce, Shakira, Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Simpson have amazing wavy hairstyles.

Spray a generous amount of medium to light hold mousse or setting lotion into your palms and apply to hair extensions. Use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute throughout the hair.

Divide hair into four sections. Tightly braid each section, securing the ends with a rubber band.

Let the extensions air dry. Do not use a blow dryer. If you have the time, it is best to leave the braids in overnight. When the braids are completely dry, remove the rubber bands.

Unbraid the four braids and use your fingers to comb through the hair. Now you have beautiful wavy hair.


  • It is best to use a wide-tooth comb on hair extensions as you don't want to create tangles and pull off the hair.
