Beach waves are a summer essential. They look incredible on short hair or long, thin or thick, straight or curly. Also, it really doesn't take much effort and there’s so many ways to achieve beach waves. Count me in.
Below are 5 different ways to get the best looking beach waves!
1.) Braid before you sleep: This is the lazy girl’s ways to get beach waves, so me. After you shower, towel dry your hair. Separate your hair into 2-6 sections, so that you end up with 2-6 braids depending on how big you want your waves to be. Braid the sections. Go to sleep looking like some kind of alien and wake up with beautiful beach waves. Run your fingers through it and spritz with a sea salt spray for some more texture.
your waves to be. Before you begin curling, spritz your hair with a heat protector, your hair will thank you. Then take one
inch pieces of hair. wrap around barrel (leave the bottom 2 inches out) and keep it there until your hair is warm to touch. Reminder, be incredibly careful not to burn yourself. Once you’re done curling, let your hair cool, then run your fingers through your waves for a more natural look, then spritz with hairspray.
3.) Scrunch it: If your hair is naturally wavy, you can get beach waves in like 2 minutes. Literally just spritz some sea
salt spray, to towel-dried hair and scrunch it. Let it air dry and you’ll have that perfect beach wave look.
4.) Straightener: A flat iron, can have many uses. You can not only use it to obviously straighten your hair, but also curl it! Take one inch sections of straight hair, clamp a few inches
below the root, slowly move the iron down and rotate in a halfway turn. While rotating seamlessly move the iron down your hair.
5.) Curling Iron: Before doing anything involving a hot tool, make sure to spray hair with hair protectant. Follow that up by brushing through to get rid of any tangles. Using a wide-barrel iron, take on inch sections of your hair, open the clamp, twist & curl, and move it down your hair, leaving out the bottom two inches. For beachy, messier waves, you should alternate between curling your hair towards and away from your face.
