One of the most popular and easiest styles to rock this summer is sexy, beach waves. Even if the closest that you get to the ocean is the local pool, you can easily create this style with a few simple tools in a few minutes. Beach waves are a great look for all hair types, and this summer is a great time to try out this style!
There are a few approaches to take in order to get the perfect beach waves, as well as tools to pick up. Although there are products on the market that guarantee this type of wave, it’s just as easy to make your own products at home. To begin, purchase a small spray bottle.
Fill this bottle with water and a few teaspoons of sea salt, then spray on the hair. As the hair begins to dry, make sure to scrunch it to create textured waves. Afterwards, feel free to smooth out the texture of the waves with leave-in conditioner or hair oil.
Another way to create beach waves from home is to get crafty with a straightening iron. Although your natural instinct might be to try this look with a curling iron, the straightening iron actually creates better waves in a looser, more natural style. To create this look, first section your hair into chunks, pick a section to start with, and clip the rest of the hair up. Hold your straightening iron vertically, and as you pull it through the hair, twist the straightening iron. Continue to do this on your whole head, then spray with hair spray to lock in the look.
Even if you aren’t near a beach, beach waves can easily be recreated at home. This look is fun, sexy, and simple to recreate. All it takes is a little time and some easy tools, and you’ll be working the waves all summer!
