There’s just something inherently effortless and feminine about a natural beach-y looking hairstyle for summer. Luckily for you, it’s it surprisingly easy to achieve.
Get the right haircut
Beach waves can work on any hair type — if you have the right haircut. You cannot get beach waves without layers! Tell your hairdresser you want to start wearing your hair naturally wavy. Layers are required to get those perfectly natural-looking swirls which will also add lightness to your hair.
Perfect your technique
Whether you want an authentic oceanic texture or plan to fake it with sea salt spray, there’s no denying that wavy beach hair is the summer style. For naturally straight hair, the easiest is to strategically place buns (two at the nape of your neck) and air dry your way to a Malibu look. Just twist, pin and wait it out. That’s it.
If your hair is naturally wavy or curly already, focus on detangling and managing frizz so it’s best to use a wide-tooth comb while rinsing out your conditioner. Allow your hair to dry and voila! Instant beach waves.
Pick the right product
One size does not fit all – pick the right product that suits your hair texture. Salt spray is something that you can use to achieve a wavy texture. Just mist it through damp or dry hair to get more texture and waves. Just a scrunch or two and you’re good to go.
If you have naturally curly hair, then you wouldn’t need much. Just an anti-frizz serum or shine spray to reduce fly aways and smooth hair down.
