Wavy Hairstyles for Students

Student Wavy Hairstyles, Karen Wright Salon in Thornton Heath, CroydonTousled waves can be a godsend for stylish students who struggle for time in the mornings, simply scrunch and go!

If you've got long wavy hair, you'll know that tangles can be a real problem. To avoid getting into a tangle when you're rushing to morning lectures, brush your hair out at night and twist into loose braids to keep it knot free and ready for the next day. In the morning, simply loosen your braids and run some product through your tresses with your fingers for a relaxed wavy long hairstyle. 

If you've got medium length hair, you're in luck as a wavy shoulder skimming cut is one of this year's top hairstyle trends! Book in at our Croydon salon for your back to uni haircut by calling us on 0208 664 3872.

Structured waves can look brilliant but need longer styling time - the benefit of these waves is that they'll drop to relaxed waves the next day -  creating two looks over two days!
