It’s never too late in the year to flaunt wavy tresses, perfect for the beach. This is one look that’ll give you style points during every season. So, read on to find out how you can achieve these perfect waves.
Curling iron (obviously)
This goes without saying—one of the best ways to transform your unyielding locks is to get out that trusty curling iron and start twirling. Once you’ve washed your hair and added hairspray, all you have to do is wrap sections of your hair around the wand and hold it for around 5 seconds. You can then release the section and run your fingers through your waves to give them that natural, tousled vibe. This is the one time where being systematic will not work for you. Picking out random sections of hair is what will give you the perfect look. So, if you’re disorganised and slightly dysfunctional, achieving this look will be a piece of cake!
Sea-salt spray—it’s a real thing!
Please tell us that you didn’t forget that you actually need something from the beach to get those beachy waves—a good sea-salt spray can make or break your look. If you’re not into applying heat, just spritzing this miracle-worker into sections of your damp hair can give you Drew Barrymore level waves.
The regular bun(s)
If you’re a teen and your mom is forcing you to buy some healthy coconut oil instead of the hairspray of your dreams, or if you’re just super broke, this is the option for you. By taking your damp hair and twisting it up tightly into 4 buns around your head for the night, you can can flaunt those effortlessly casual waves!
Use a straightener
For all of you girls who only have a hair straightener at home, don’t worry—we’ve got your back. You can use it to give you the same beachy waves that you would get with a curling iron, if not better. Take sections of your hair and mold them into an ‘S’ shape. Run your straightener over this to lock the wave in. By repeating this over the rest of your hair, you’ll have people wondering which celebrity stylist has done your hair!
