This summer I took on a lot with work, kickball and most importantly a new hair style - the beachy wave.
If you've attempted this hair do, then you know it can be difficult to master. I love the messy and laid back look of beachy wave but getting the look perfected is not an easy feat. I've used many tools to achieve this look including a straightener, small curling iron and a bubble wand. (For the record, I had never even heard of a bubble wand until this summer.)
Since I can’t justify going to the salon twice a week, I’ve spent a lot of time practicing. With a great wand and some willpower, you can have beachy waves, too! Here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. Use a 1 inch wand with no taper or a bubble wand, depending on the wave you want
2. Divide your hair into sections, grab a chunk and place the wand behind the hair in the middle and wrap medium sections of hair around the barrel. Be sure to stay away from the ends. (You want the ends to appear straight.)
3. Always curl your hair away from your face, otherwise you'll end up with curly tendrils
4. Spray and let sit until cool then run your fingers through your hair
And voila – beautiful beachy waves!
