Sofía Vergara is one of those people who rarely strays from what she knows works for her, whether that’s wearing fitted mermaid-style gowns on the red carpet or rocking lustrous long hair. On Wednesday, August 10, the actor was spotted in L.A. with her signature length styled in what appeared to be effortless beach waves accented by sun-kissed highlights. The style was a fitting complement to her romantic floral, tiered dress, while her bright yellow nails added an unexpected touch.
While low-maintenance bobs have arguably been the summer’s MVP style—seen most recently on actor Aubrey Plaza—loose beauty waves would be their lifetime-achievement counterpart, as they never go out of style. But instead of big, bouncy barrel curls, celebrities are opting for the “half-wave” hairstyle this season, which essentially mixes loose, effortless texture with flat roots for a modern vibe, as Vergara does.
“The half wave is laid-back glam at its best,” Jason Collier, A-list hairstylist and Bblonde brand educator, told Glamour UK earlier this summer. “It mixes in straight and wavy sections to keep hair multidimensional, a little mussy, and a lot cooler,” he said. “The half wave consists of a straight root, with a loose wave from the eye lid or ear lobe, with loose, relaxed ends,” he explains.
