Get beach wave curls that brings out your inner mermaid!
Today I want to show you guys how I do my signature beach wave curls. I get a lot of questions on how to do these and they are so much easier than you think. I’ll be walking you through the step by step process on how to get these effortless waves without much effort at all.
My hair kind of has a mind of its own. It’s straight on top, curly on the bottom and just all over the place. That’s why I try to curl my hair twice a week so that it looks a little more tame than it usually does. Today I’m going to use the Conair Travel Smart Curling Iron. I really like this curling iron because it’s super cheap. I bought it right before I went on a study abroad to Europe and it didn’t short out like all the other girls’ curling irons because it had the correct voltage. If you are going to Europe or even out of the country, it’s definitely something to look into while creating beach wave curls. This one gives me such good curls and it’s so cheap which is why I prefer it.
Prepare your hair
The first thing I’m going to do to get these beach wave curls is section off my hair because even though I have fine hair, there’s a lot of it. I usually do three sections and then I secure it at the back of my head. I take the BathPack brush and this is one of my favorite brushes because it’s similar to a WetBrush but this is $5! I know, it’s amazing! It gets all of knots out and works really well on both wet and dry hair.
I’m going to take a piece of hair about two inches thick and hold my curling iron at a 45 degree angle with the clip at the top. I’m going to clip it closer to the root and twist it once, hold for three seconds, slide down two inches, curl again and repeat down the strand. Once I get to the bottom, I lightly release the clip twist the curling iron, and straighten the ends of my hair for a piecey look to master these beach wave curls. Continue through each layer and curl away from the face.
I add two different products in my hair after I’m finished, Batiste Dry Shampoo and the Kristen Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray. Both of these add texture and volume to keep my hair looking great until the next time I wash it.
That’s how I get my signature beach wave curls! Let me know if you have any other questions or if you have any suggestions of other hair videos you would like to see.
