It's easy to get that natural look and tons of volume – in minutes!
Secret Wave® gently rotates hair between tourmaline ceramic-coated plates to let you effortlessly create relaxed, natural-looking waves.
HOW IT WORKS
Follow these steps for beautiful, natural, beachy waves.
Divide dry, smoothly combed hair into two sections. (Sectioning clips not included.)
Within each half, separate hair into even layers (3–4 layers depending upon hair thickness).
Press thumb rest to open head, position styler where you want wave to start, and close head. As head rotates, it heats and twists hair.
To create waves on either side of head, press and hold the RIGHT or LEFT rotation ... + read more
To create waves on either side of head, press and hold the RIGHT or LEFT rotation buttons. Press left rotation button for the left side and right rotation button for the right. - read less
When the styler reaches the end of section, slowly slide it off hair, release rotation button, and push thumb rest to open head.
Allow all twists to cool completely, then reach in and gently break them apart with your fingers – from top to bottom.
Results may vary by hair type.
STYLING TIPS
How the hair is layered is vital to the end result of the look
  • First, divide hair into two halves
  • Separate each side into 3 to 4 even layers
  • Pin each layer separately or separate bottom layer and pin other layers together. Watch Video
  • As you begin, start with the bottom section, and work your way up
Be sure that you are steadily moving the styler down the hair strand
  • It is important that you keep movement continuous to avoid damaging hot spots
The speed at which you move the Secret Wave® along the hair is important.
  • Move styler down approximately 1.5 inches of hair per second to create desired result
  • For smoother ends, move the Secret Wave® faster as you get close to the bottom of the hair. Watch Video
The width of the layered sections (left to right) will also determine the final look:
  • Beach Waves (2 to 2.5 inches)
  • Natural Waves (2.5 to 3.5 inches)
  • Soft Volume (3.5 inches and wider – recommended)
After your twists have cooled completely, about 5-10 minutes depending on hair length, start gently breaking them apart
  • Start from the top of the twist and gently loosen hair
  • If you immediately finger-comb hair from the middle or before twist has cooled completely, you will cause hair to frizz
  • It is important that this final tousling step is done gently and only after hair has completely cooled
After I separate and layer my hair, do I insert the entire section of hair into the Secret Wave?

FAQ
How do I prep my hair to achieve the best waves?+
Just make sure your hair section is clean, dry and combed, then hold it straight as you place it between Secret Wave® plates. How the hair is layered is vital to the end result of the look. First, divide hair into two halves down the middle. Separate each side into 3 to 4 even layers. Pin each layer separately, or separate bottom layer and pin other layers together. As you begin, start with the bottom section, and work your way up.
I have curly or textured hair. Is Secret Wave® a good styling option for me?+
Absolutely! Secret Wave® creates beautiful waves on any hair type or texture, one after another. And the tourmaline ceramic adds incredible shine.
I have short hair. Is Secret Wave® a good styling option for me?+
Secret Wave® yields the best results on shoulder length hair or longer.
How do I know when Secret Wave® is ready to use?+
When you turn on the power, the red indicator light will illuminate. Secret Wave’s instant heat technology reaches ready temperature in 30 seconds.
How do I know how much hair to use in each layer?+
First, divide hair into two halves. Then, separate each side into 3 to 4 even layers depending on hair thickness. Use 3 layers for medium to thin hair and 4 layers for thick hair.
After I separate and layer my hair, do I insert the entire section of hair into the Secret Wave?+
Ideally, yes! The width of the layered section (left to right) will determine the final style:
  • Beach Waves (2 to 2.5 inches)
  • Natural Waves (2.5 to 3.5 inches)
  • Soft Volume (3.5 inches and beyond) *Recommended*
How fast or slow should I be moving the Secret Wave® down my hair strand?+
The speed at which you move the Secret Wave® along the hair is important. Move styler down approximately 1.5 inches of hair per second to create desired end result. For smoother ends, move the Secret Wave® faster as you get close to the bottom of the hair strand.
Can I use this product on hair extensions?+
No, we do not recommend that you use the product on hair extensions. Only use on real hair, clean from hair styling products including any hair sprays.
How long does it take for the twists to cool completely?+
Approximately 5–10 minutes, depending on hair length.
How do I break apart the twists without causing my hair to frizz?+
Start from the top of the twist and gently loosen hair – see image within How It Works section. If you immediately finger-comb hair from the middle of the twist or before twist has cooled completely, you will cause hair to frizz. It is important that this final tousling step is done gently and only after hair has completely cooled.
