Waves Hairstyle Photoshops, also known as Wave Check and Waves and Air Pods, refer to digitally edited images in which the subject has a curly hairstyle known as "waves" superimposed over their original hair. Often paired with photoshopped AirPods, the edits are considered a development of the AirPod Flexing meme.
