  • Everyone Can Use it

    Hot Waves can be used by everyone. This product was designed to work with all hair types and all lengths of hair.

  • Snaps

    A set of snaps hold Hot Waves together. These snaps are beneficial because it makes removing the headband from your hair very easy. Although you can pull the headband off your head this could cause pulling and breaking. Instead, all you have to do is undo the snaps and your waves will fall free of Hot Waves.

  • Stretchy Material

    The stretchy material makes this product perfect for everyone. It does not matter what size head you have because Hot Waves will adjust to create a perfect and comfortable fit.

  • Fashionable

    Hot Waves looks exactly like a headband which is convenient. You might be too embarrassed to run to the grocery store with curlers in your hair but with Hot Waves everyone will think you are wearing a headband.

Easy to Use

  1. Heat it up

    The first step is to heat your Hot Waves up the microwave.

  2. Put it on

    Put it on your head but keep it on top of your hair.

  3. Wrap Hair

    Take individual sections of your hair and wrap them around Hot Waves. The size of the section you use will influence the type of wave you get as a final result.

  4. Wait and Remove

    Wait while your waves set. Once they have set all you have to do is remove Hot Waves. You can either do this by pulling the headband off your head or unsnap it at the back.


  1. Tight Waves

    To achieve tight waves you have to work with small sections of hair. This means that when you are wrapping the hair around Hot Waves you should only wrap small sections and make sure they are wrapped tightly.

  2. Loose Waves

    To get loose waves you should use large sections of hair. The rule of thumb to follow is that the bigger the sections of hair you use the bigger and looser your waves will be.

  3. Hot Brows

    This product also comes with not one but three Hot Brows. Hot Brow is the easiest, hottest and fastest way to define and shape your eyebrows. You just have to trace it along your brow line and remove any unwanted hairs.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Dry Hair

    Make sure your hair is completely dry when using Hot Waves. Your waves will not set if your hair is wet or damp.

  2. Use Product

    If you want your curls to be more defined and if you want them to stay in for longer periods of time use products. This could include a curling gel or mousse. Apply a small amount to your hair before using Hot Waves.


  • Only Curls the Bottom

    A major downfall with this product is that it only curls the bottom half of your hair. If you are looking for a product that is going to make your hair wavy from root to tip this is not the product for you. Hot Waves will only create waves that go half way up your head.
