How to: Get Beach Waves; Guide to Beach Waves in 3 Easy Steps
Craving for those sex VS beach curls? Read how to get them at home!
Ever wanted those sexy beach waves Victoria’s Secret Angels are famous for? Not just the VS Angels, year after year beach waves have become the official summer hair style! From Gigi Hadid to Alessandra Ambrosio, Khole Kardashian and Jessica Alba are well-seasoned veterans of this undeniably sexy tousled hair trend.
The lucky fact about the beach waves is that even if you are currently rocking a long mane, short bob or even a lob, you can still try these beach waves!
And the lucky fact number two is that you can try these at home with the simplest methods! Here is what you need to do…
What you need:
1. Salt Spray
Top 3 Sprays from Pricey to Affordable:
Oribe Surfcomber Mousse (£36): Think big and voluminous. This will give you a windblown bombshell look.
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (£21.50): This spray can do miracles to the limpest most fragile hair. Enjoy the ultra-natural looser finish with this miracle worker.
L’Oréal Professional Beach Waves (£11.50): The name says it all. Best for the fine or thin hair this is not going to weigh your hair down with a “wetter” look.
2. The Curling Tongs
Make sure you know what you want your hair to look like before purchasing the tongs. For finer hair we think the tongs with small barrels are best and long manes could really use bigger barrels. Also, the hotter the tongs are, more statement is set for the tousles.
The key to locking down the perfect hairspray is that it should provide the hold without the sticky weight. Hint: Final Fix Hairspray (3.95)
How to Do It:
Wash your hair with as less conditioner as possible so that the waves are not weighed down. Towel dry the hair and spritz the salt spray all over the ends. If you want a natural look run your fingers through your hair and just let it dry naturally.
For the ultimate beach babe turn on the tongs and hold them around the tongs for 3-5 minutes. Whip your hair a bit for a bit of boho. And some hairspray and you are good to go!
