If you’ve tried creating waves with a flat iron and haven’t had much luck, check out the video above to get perfect waves by braiding your hair first. 

GLAMSQUAD hair stylist Shana breaks it down in a few easy steps:

1. Start by sectioning off your hair in 4 to 6 braids around your head, taking note that the smaller the braid, the tighter the wave. 

2. Simply run your flat iron up and down each braid. 

3. Unbraid, run your fingers through the waves and set with hair spray. 

For extra credit (and volume): 

Add loose curls for more lift and body. Place at random for a less structured look.
