Introduced by stylist Kevin Murphy at his Super Natural hair show in Las Vegas, the Infinity Wave isn鈥檛 your normal curling-iron technique, but it鈥檚 still totally simple to perfect.

Here鈥檚 how it works:

You鈥檒l need shoulder-length hair or longer (or, ya know, some snazzy extensions) to nab these curls, and it should work on all textures of hair, although if you have fierce natural curls, you may need to straighten 鈥榚m a bit beforehand.

Using a one-inch curling iron, hold it horizontally about an inch or two away from your head. Grab a section of hair and wrap it flat around the curling iron. Continue wrapping the strand, however cross it over the first bit and continue to wrap and cross (or in essence, weaving your hair) until you reach the end of the stand. DON鈥橳 take your time as your hair may become overexposed to heat as you wrap. Also, be sure to watch your fingertips because OUCH!

Once you鈥檝e let the hair loose from the iron, shake it out a bit, then continue on to the rest of your mane. When everything is curled to your liking, give it a quick spritz with either a texture spray if you have fine/straight hair or an oil-infused shine spray for folks with curly, wavy, dry, or textured hair.

And that鈥檚 all there is to it. Lovely loose curls that take no time at all. Give it a try and rock those waves today!
