Who says the beach is just for summertime?
I love the look of loose beachy waves all year round so I decided to write a post this week for my favorite NuMe curling wands. I like to curl my hair more than straightening it but I try to go for a more natural look versus tighter artificial curls. That is why I bought the 32 mm wand in order to get the look I am going for since the thickness of the wand is what determines tighter or looser curls for this loose beachy wave tutorial.
If you turn your wand up to a higher temperature, it will hold the curl for longer but it could increase the risk of damage. I, personally, turn it up higher so I don’t have to touch it up throughout the day. If you are afraid to damage it, here’s an earlier post on how to protect your luscious locks.
I heat up my wand to 410 degrees and begin with sectioning my hair by layer and tying up the extra until I am finished with the one before. Take 2-3 inch chunks of hair and curl starting in the front and working my way towards the back. I typically curl my hair away from my face so it doesn’t cover it while I am at school and anchoring on the news. However, this can cause your hair to become one giant curl if it is all in the same direction. Alternating directions for each piece and tugging down on every curl create more natural-looking hair instead of one uniform piece.
Run your fingers through your hair or gently brush it for a softer look. NuMe products always give me the style I am looking for and I hope it will do the same for you.
