WATER BOTTLE WAVES: How to Curl Your Hair with a Water Bottle

Beauty accounts all over instagram posted videos of water bottle waves: people all over the world creating curls with a water bottle and a hair dryer. It seems too easy and too simple to be true, so I put the beauty hack to the test to see if it really worked!

Watch me try curling my hair with a water bottle here:

Things you’ll need:

  1. A water bottle
  2. A hair dryer with a concentrator nozzle

Cut the top off of the water bottle to create more space to insert your hair. Cut another section the size of the hair dryer nozzle on the side of the bottle. Insert a small section of hair into the water bottle and then place the hair dryer on the edge of the bottle. Turn on the hair dryer and let it blow your hair in the same direction for 3-5 seconds. Take your hair out of the bottle.

OR… you can just get a curling iron!

Listen- I don’t recommend trying this at home. By my third attempt, my room smelled like burnt plastic and the water bottle started melting. Today it’s two days and 1 wash AFTER I tried this hack, and the strands that I curled are dry and brittle. In conclusion, its super fun to watch but it’s not something I would do to my hair again! Not to mention cutting up a water bottle takes a lot of effort and the bottle will melt throughout your styling session!

What do you think about the hair hack? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. This was entertaining to watch, but as we can see it was useless. I can’t believe your hair is so dry after trying this! Going to need a lot of hydrating deep conditioner! Lol. The smell of burnt plastic makes me sick blahh.


  2. Wow! This is awesome! I’ve never seen this done before, but I can’t wait to try this on my own hair. Thanks for the great info!


  3. If the bottle really does melt then no no no!
    I’m really not trying this
    As clumsy as I am, I could lose my hair๐Ÿ˜‚
