Get the classic beachy waves look, born by the sea and bound to make you sexy this summer.
“Start with damp hair and mist on a beach spray. It’s important to work with a quality product to create the right texture. Sachajuan Ocean Mist is amazing and one of my favorites. Spray it at the roots and midway down strands, then work it through with your fingers to the ends. Don’t be afraid to apply it liberally.”

“If your hair is dry or coarse at the tips, rub on a dime-size amount of curl cream to moisturize and control any fly-aways. This is also the secret to getting that piece-y, breeze-y effect.”

Enhance Your Texture
“Next, scrunch up the ends to encourage a curl and blow-dry with a diffuser or let your hair air-dry.”

“Create waves by wrapping random strands around the barrel of a clip-less curling iron, focusing on the area from the root to the mid-shaft. Leave your ends free—this will give you that natural, windswept kind of look you’re after—and you’re done.”
