How to get Beach Waves for Short Hair
I don't know about you, but I love all the sunshine we've been having lately! I hop out of bed every day thinking about the ocean. Ever since cutting my hair shorter, I've been working on my beach hair…and I've finally perfected my method!
The Tools You'll Need
There are different methods you can use to get the look, but this beach waver from Bed Head is my current favorite. It's quick, easy, and inexpensive!
My Video Tutorial for Beach Waves on Short Hair
You only need about 10 minutes out of your day to create this look (more if your hair is really long and/or thick). Click the play button to watch my video tutorial:
The waves end up relaxing a bit as the day goes on, but if you include mousse they'll last most of the day. Those results probably vary a little based on your hair type and how humid it is wherever you live.
How to Get Beach Waves in 5 Easy Steps
- Purchase a beach waver tool
Mine is from TiGi, but Hot Waves also makes one.
- Pile hair atop your head and begin at the bottom
Use clips to section most of your hair off and place it atop your head, then leave a section loose at the bottom so you can begin there and work your way up.
- Work in 1-inch sections
Clamp a 1-inch section of hair and hold for about 5 seconds per wave for fine hair and closer to 10 seconds per wave for thicker hair.
- Continue working your way around until you reach the top
Work on each section individually until you reach the crown. It's up to you whether or not you decide to do your bangs.
- Add mousse to hold the waves
Spray a golf ball-sized amount of mousse in your hands, then scrunch it throughout hair to keep waves in place and looking like they're “fresh from the beach” all day long.
Try adding a scrunchie for a super cute look if you're in the process of growing out your bangs.
Well, that's all there is to it! It's pretty easy. If you guys would like a heatless method to get a similar look, just let me know.
