No-heat waves are great because they look natural. But they take forever to create...usually overnight! Waves with heat are great because they can be created quickly, but they usually look a little too polished. I decided to marry the two ideas into beachy waves that look a little messy, natural, and can be created in minutes! Here's how to:
Instead of spraying on wet hair,
Your hair won't really be wavy--that's fine--it's just to give some texture.
Take 1 in. to 2 in. sections,
and wrap around a curling wand.
My curling wand is 1.5 in.
Hold for about 5-10 seconds,
leaving space between hair
& the barrel,
Repeat all over hair
and gently loosen waves with fingers.
Spray and scrunch again if desired.
T I P S :
- Always use a heat protectant before applying heat.
- To keep the look messy, don't brush out sections before wrapping. Just grab random sections of various sizes, and wrap hair around the barrel.
- Add a flower behind your ear (real or not) as a finishing touch.
- Don't use homemade salt spray--see my homemade salt recipe here--it just doesn't work the same!
