How to do beach waves, the three key secrets to perfect waves.
Do you ever wonder how to achieve beach waves without visiting the salon? Or, without visiting the beach? Have you ever watched a tutorial, and then tried to style your hair up to perfect wave perfection, but instead you ended up looking like Shirley Temple? If this has ever been you, read on girlfriend!
I promise that after reading this post, you will never look like Shirley Temple again.
Imagine this. I am laying on my back on my bed with my head hanging off the edge. In both hands I have each end of a cut up cotton t-shirt, and somehow I am supposed to tie this on my head a special way so I can wake up to some banging curls, or waves in the morning. Plopping or blobbing, thats what it’s called. The tutorial told me I would wake up with waves of perfection upon sunrise–HAHA! If you want your hair to resemble Medusa, then go for it, get your plop on.
The point is, I am just a mom in desperate search of new ideas for my hair, and I’ll try just about any tutorial out there. Somehow, my attempts always end up with a whomp whomp whomp…nailed it! But I am telling you, after many attempts, I have mastered the key secrets on how to do beach waves, and do them beautifully.
How to do beach waves like a boss!
I present to you the best combination for beach waves + a video. Make sure to watch.
- Use a large barrel wand. This is the secret sauce ladies. The smaller the wand, the tighter the curl. So….the larger the wand, the looser the curl. I personally use the wand from Hot Tools. It’s ah-maze!
- Smooth your roots! No one wants beautiful waves with nappy roots. Tightly wrap your hair around the wand at the root, and pull up and down a few time to smooth the hair.
- The most important secret, don’t wrap the entire section of your hair from root to tip around the wand. Wrap the section two or three times around the wand, and pull it towards the middle. Remember waves, not spiral curls.
So, if you are having any trouble picturing this, I have made a video that shows you exactly how I do it. Check it out below.
