Emily's long hair waves are created on hair which is either naturally a few inches below the shoulders or extended with some type of fusion or sew-in extensions.

Although long clip-in hair extensions may also be utilized, the hair waves are created using a combination of styling products and hot tools.

If you utilize any type of hair extensions, it's very important to make sure they can be styled with heat tools.

This gorgeous wavy hairstyle can be worn with an array of center or side parts.  The waves can also be worn with or without a fringe.
