HOW-TO: The Boho Chic Néo Venus Wave

Lauren Salapatek | April 18, 2017 | 8:08 AM

Wavy hair is everywhere. Season after season, from the runways to the streets, this look dubbed the "Néo Venus Wave" has been worn and styled in so many ways: glam, beachy, mermaid, messy, retro.

We’ve spotted this year at Versace and Gucci fashion shows this natural way to style waves. This boho chic look by L'Oréal Professionnel (part of their IT Looks for Spring/Summer 2017) is easy to wear but very classy because the face is sculpted by the movements of hair. It’s the must-have look for red carpets!

The hair color is part of L'Oréal Professionnel's Nude Beige collection, which is strongly inspired by the "no make-up" trend. This natural shade is the perfect mix between ash and platinum blonde. Nude Beige offers a subtle, sunny shine and an ultra- luminous finish.


  • Prep Hair with Dual Stylers Liss & Pump Up, power dry.
  • Curl hair in vertical sections away from the face on both sides of the head using a curling wand.
  • Leave the ends of the hair out of the iron to create a natural effect.
  • Spray Infinium 4 to set and distribute Architexture.
