Sexy beach waves might seem difficult to create, but this super-easy 7 step guide from Butterfly Studio Salon owner Kattia Solano will prove you don’t need a lot of hairstyle know-how to create this perfect summer look from the comfort of your own home!
What You Need
1. A 1 to 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron
(The NanoCeramic Curling Iron from Ulta is a great choice.)
2. A volumizing spray, such as
Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray
3. A light hold hair spray, like
Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray
Step 1: With hair wet, apply the volumizing spray directly to hair.
Step 2: Flip your head over, and use a
hair dryer to dry hair and add volume to the roots.
Step 3: To smooth out the hair shaft before curling, twist large section of hair around your finger. Start from the bottom and continue winding until there is tension.
Step 4: Separate hair into 4 sections, and mist hairspray on each section you’ll be curling (approximately 3 inches down from your roots.)
Step 5: Using your curling iron, wrap medium-size sections of hair around the barrel of the curling iron (remember, start about 3 inches down from the roots and avoid the ends – you want the ends of your hair to be straight for this look.)
Step 6: Continue curling medium-size sections of hair until all hair is curled.
Step 7: Finish the look by misting hair all over with your light hold hairspray, and gently scrunch hair with your fingers. Do not brush or comb!
Voila! Your end result should look similar to the picture above. These 7 steps make it easy to create sexy beach waves at home without spending a lot of time and money. The best part? This look works beautifully in the summer when you want a simple, sexy hairstyle and are tired of boring ponytails!
