How to get the Perfect Beach Waves

 This is my favorite style for a casual quick go-to look that Des loves to do often as well! It is super fast, and gives the illusion that you naturally have a perfect wave. This lived-in style is a very popular trend for spring/summer. Great for wedding season/barbeques, or even just a day at the beach!

 What you need

Flat Iron

Texture Spray

Heat Protectant

Teasing Brush


1.)  Start by spraying a heat protectant all over before starting to blow dry.

2.) Once hair is dry, tease up at the roots to add a little bit of height.

3.) Beginning at one side- Holding the flat iron horizontally, move the iron down the hair in a zig-zag motion. Moving it forward and then bending it back.

4.) Continue that process all the way around the head.

Tip* the curl pattern doesn’t need to be perfect!

5.) Once the entire head is curled/waved, spray directly up into the hair with a Texture Spray. This will help give the style more of a “lived in, beachy look”.

6.) Run your fingers through your hair to break up any pieces that are stuck together.

 And there you have it! The perfect beachy wave, and also the perfect alternative to the everyday curling iron curl! Get the products to do the same below, along with my video to follow along even better.
