How To Get Beachy Waves

Between the salt water and the wind, the beach never ceases to give our hair the perfect body and volume. But the sea salt gives our hair a very dirty feel that we cannot wait to wash out. Want the beachy effect without the smell of salt and sunscreen? Here’s how to get it!

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • It’s a Ten , leave-in conditioner/thermal protectant.    Amazon . eBay
  • 1/2 Inch Curling Iron.   Amazon eBay
  • Redken Water Wax , texturizing pomade.  Amazon . eBay
  • Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity , light-weight hairspray.  Amazon . eBay

Step 1: Spray dry hair with a leave-in conditioner and thermal protectant. Make sure hair is nicely coated to protect your hair from the heat of the curling iron.

Step 2: Take two inch partings and wrap hair around the barrel of the curling iron! Start two to three inches away from the roots and leave an inch out from the ends. Make sure to wrap around the barrel to get a beachy effect! If you use the clamp of the curling iron you will get ringlets instead of waves.

Step 3: Once you’ve curled all your hair, take some Redken Water Wax and rub it into your palms. Run your hands through the curls, gently pulling down on them to loosen and blend the curls and  to give them a choppy effect at the ends.

Step 4: Flip your head upside down, spray Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity Hairspray all over. Crunch your hair with your hands, flip back over, and voila! You’ve gone to the beach.

Now go enjoy your lovely summer day or fun night out!
