1. By Braiding
You wake up in the morning, plug in your curling iron and get your favorite waves within minutes. But do you ever wonder that women in ancient times also liked styling their hair in different ways, even in the absence of electricity or heat styling products?

How to Create Wig Waves with Braids
Creating natural waves requires braiding your hair just the common ways we do it, but a bit of precision can let you decide the kind of waves you want. If you wish equal waves throughout your wig, then divide your hair into even sections, and if you like random-looking waves, dividing your hair into uneven sections is the secret. Also, remember that the width of your waves depends on the size of your braids. Another point to mention is that the typical three-strand braid will result in waves from the top of your eyes to the end, whereas a French braid gives you waves in your tresses from the roots to tip.
Braid your hair according to your preference and secure with a rubber band. Leave it for at least 3 hours or for as much time as you can.
Tip: Braid your hair while wet or spray Luke-warm water. You can also apply a hair mousse or mist for long-lasting waves.

Take a small section of your hair and start rolling it around your fingers till you get to the root of the hair. Now pin up the loop to your hair and secure it well. Repeat the process till all of the hair is secured well. This method will result in uneven curls but perfect for those who prefer a raw style.
