Beach waves hold a completely different appeal, don’t you think? Irrespective of whether you’re planning to hit the beach or not, this is one hairstyle that you can never ever go wrong with. From formal events and parties to casual outings and even shaadis, when you can’t think of how to style your hair, you can always turn to beach waves to amp the glam quotient.

But, do you feel like your beach waves just never look quite as appealing in person as they do on your favourite celeb? Well, not anymore. We’ve come up with a super simple step-by-step guide that you can follow to ace the perfect beach waves.

how to get beachy waves

Step 01: Beach waves look lovely when your hair looks super voluminous. Therefore, always start by applying a generous amount of a texturizing spray  product all over your hair. We recommend the Toni & Guy Hair Casaul Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Step 02: Before you start with the heat styling, spray a generous amount of the Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. This will not only protect your hair from heat damage, but also make your hair appear soft and healthy all day long.  

Step 03: Now, divide your hair into two horizontal sections, and pin the upper section of your hair before moving to the next step.

Step 04: Take a tiny portion (about 2 inches only) of your hair from the lower section and start to slowly curl your hair. It is important to choose the right barrel size if you want perfect results. If you have thicker hair, then use a 1.5 inch barrel and if you have thin hair then a one inch barrel should work just fine.

Step 05: Beach waves are different from curls and therefore, you should never start curling your hair right from the top — always start somewhere around the ears. Twist the hair around the barrel, hold it for a few seconds and repeat the same process by twisting the hair on the alternate side.

Step 06: Once you’ve curled all your hair, allow your strands to cool off for a little bit and then finish this hairstyle off by spraying a lot of setting spray to keep your curls from opening.
