When you get a new hairstyle, working out the best way to style it can be one of the most fun, but also trickiest parts about it.

Rochelle Humes recently went for a dramatic new style, chopping several inches off her hair to give her her shortest haircut ever. The former Saturdays singer has been showing off her new ‘do on Instagram ever since, and fans have been obsessed with how she styles her new super short cut.

On Wednesday, Rochelle hosted a Q&A session on her Instagram stories , with one fan asking exactly how she styles her new hair. Rochelle replied by posting a photo of herself with her short locks styled into loose, undone waves, and commenting: “This is my favourite style on the short hair… @jayb.hair styled it in this pic and used a large mermaid waver on the lowest heat setting” followed by a drooling emoji and some clapping hands.

Stylist Jay Birmingham was behind the original chop, and he also shared a photo on his Instagram on Thursday of the TV presenter’s hair, captioning it: “We went shorter! I cut Rochelle’s hair blunt & 1 length to give a heavy edge. Styled using a jumbo waver & blow drying the ends flicked out”.

After taking some more length off Rochelle’s hair, a jumbo mermaid waver was the tool of choice for achieving the perfectly undone, natural-looking waves in her hair, followed by a blow dry to achieve the flicked-out bottoms that make up Rochelle’s ‘favourite style’.

Jumbo wavers are ideal for creating loose waves that don’t look too heavily styled, and are super quick and easy to use, even for the most novice stylists.
