Loose and relaxed beachy waves are always in style; it’s a carefree look that looks sexy all year round. So how do we achieve these supermodel locks? The key is to use a big barrel curling iron or jumbo sized hot rollers and to shake out your hair when finished. You can also use a sea salt spray in order to achieve more texture. Here are four ways to create this season’s most coveted hair style.
Set It With Hot Rollers
One of the easiest ways to get long lasting waves that last all day long is with hot rollers. The biggest advantage of using hot rollers is that you can forget about it once you have the rollers on and do your makeup or get ready. For a natural look you’ll want to use hot rollers of varying sizes. Roll your hair away from your face and let it sit for at least ten minutes.
Once you remove the rollers, you can run your fingers through them in order to loosen them up after the curls are no longer hot. If your curls are too tight you can loosen them even further by running a comb through. Just remember that your curls will continue to loosen up throughout the day.
Use A Curling Iron
You can achieve a similar look by using a big barrel curling iron or wand. Make sure to use a thermal protectant spray (we like Tresseme because it works and it’s affordable) in order to prevent heat damage. Simply wrap large sections of hair throughout a large barrel and let the curls set after you’re finished. Try to use a clipless curling iron as these tend to achieve more natural looking waves.
Once you are finished simply flip your hair over and tousle your locks with your hands. If you want extra volume apply a texturizing spray throughout for a piecy look. Finish off with hairspray in order to set your style for the day.
Use A Sea Salt Spray For Texture
Don’t have time to curl your hair? One of the easiest ways to achieve messy carefree waves is to use a sea salt or texturizing spray. Salt sprays are excellent for achieving that messy beach look. Simply spray it on your hair and create finger waves and texture with your fingers. The main draw back with these sprays is that they can dry your hair out. Make sure to condition on a regular basis and deep condition once a week if you decide to use a salt spray.
The best thing about messy beach waves is that they look even better the day after. Refrain from washing your hair and use a dry shampoo like Batiste in order to freshen up your locks and add even more body and texture
