Wavy hair is the combination of curly and straight hair. Wavy hairs are not as coiled as curly hairs, and they are also not so straight like straight hair. Wavy hair is a naturally beautiful hair. It is full of volume, and compliments any kind of face cutting. Wavy hairs are usually thick and you don’t have to apply any styling products to keep the hair manageable.
