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 the beach waver tool. Mine is from Tigi, but Hot Waves also makes one
- Section off hair and begin adding waves with the bottom layer, then work your way up to the top
- Clamp a 1-inch section of hair and hold for about 5 seconds per wave
- Work your way around until you've completed each of the sections
- Spray a golf ball sized amount of mousse in your hands, then scrunch it throughout hair to keep curls in place 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.
