BEAUTY: HOW TO GET SUMMER BEACH WAVES

HOW TO GET SUMMER BEACH WAVES

I've been trying to perfect the summer beach waves look for a long time. I've tried so many products and styling tools, I've read all the blog posts and watched every video on YouTube but the results were always the same; hard crispy hair that was impossible to work with the next day. But now I've finally found a method that works for me and it works every time. I actually wore the look in my previous post so if you want proof of the results just click here. 


Start with a clean base 

Make sure your hair is washed and ready to go. I like to wash my hair with the Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Shampoo and Conditioner which contains 0% silicone, 0% parabens and 0% colourants so it won't weigh my hair down so the curls will hold longer.

Use a sea salt spray

Lightly mist your hair from the middle section to the tips with the John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray (currently £4 in Boots, woohoo!). This product was discontinued a few years back and bottles were even sold on eBay for up to $120 (I'm not joking folks!) but it's back now by popular demand and I can see why! The spray gives enough grit to create that tousled look, without the crunchy hair, and it has THE most delicious coconut smell that just makes me wish I was on a beach somewhere in Hawaii...I can dream can't I?!

Time to dry

Now leave your hair to air dry (or diffuse it if you have one) until it's about 80% of the way there (I like to use this time to get dressed and put my makeup on). Then finish it off with a hair dryer, making sure to scrunch it with your hands whilst you do it. 

Finish it off

Take a wide barreled curling tong (I use a Babyliss Pro one) and curl any sections that need some extra definition, the thicker the sections the better. Also try to make sure you curl them in different directions for a more natural look. Once you're finished, run your fingers through to loosen the curls, or give your head a shake, and use some Charles Worthington Texturising Spray if you want a more voluminous dishevelled look.
