3 Easy Techniques to Create the Perfect Beach Waves
Making great beach waves is not always easy, so we share with you three simple and effective techniques to get perfect curls. Ideally, you should test each method to see which one works best for you.
Waving with Braids
While your hair is slightly damp, make one or more braids depending on the size of the waves you want to achieve.
For braids to work their magic, it’s important to have enough time on your hands. You can even sleep with your hair braided to have beautiful waves as soon as you wake up. For those who are in a hurry, it is possible to use the hair dryer to fix the result. The PLUG by Must52 Airflow Infrared Hairdryer is an excellent choice because it delivers gentle heat deep into the hair fiber and significantly reduces drying time.
Waving with a Curling Iron
We don’t always have time to use a heat-free technique to wave our hair. A curling iron is the perfect way to get great beach hair in under 15 minutes.
Prepare your hair by brushing it thoroughly and spraying it with a heat protectant, such as R+Co BLEU Hypersonic Hairspray or Nioxin Therm Activ Protector. In addition to providing superior protection against high heat, these types of hairsprays add shine to hair.
For best results, we recommend using the curling iron on clean, well-dried and fairly straight hair. The amika’s Chameleon Interchangeable Curling Set is an excellent choice since it not only performs well, but also allows you to form waves of different sizes. So, you can choose according to your mood.
Divide your hair into layers to make it easier to curl each strand.
Wrap one strand at a time around the curling iron and wait a few seconds before removing your hair.
Gently run your hands through your hair to soften it for the perfect beach look.
Waving with a Flat Iron
Just like curling with a curling iron, you need to prepare your hair by blow-drying it properly, brushing it and spraying it with a heat protectant.
Separate your hair into equal parts along the length to make swirls.
Run the flat iron through your hair, applying light pressure for a few seconds. It is important to iron from the top down. Thanks to its extra-long curved plates, the BNTC3556C iron from BaBylissPRO will be your best friend to make your curls.
For each of these methods, we recommend finishing your beach waves with a long-lasting finishing spray. Hold.ME 3–Way Hairspray by Design.ME offers three levels of hold: light, medium and high. It will make your hair sumptuous, voluminous and shiny.
