With summer in full swing, it’s time to master the perfect beach wave… no salt required! Raquel and Brittany DaSilva, co-founders of HAIRGOD, share their tips and tricks to create this effortlessly chic hairstyle. And the best part? This hairstyle looks fab on just about every cut – from short bobs to long tresses!
Before styling your hair, decide if you’d like to use a curling iron or flat iron. Both are great options for creating natural looking beach waves – it’s just personal preference for what tool you’d like to use and what you have available!
On clean, freshly blow dried hair, begin by sectioning your hair into three to four large sections.
#StyleTip: the bigger the section, the looser the waves!
Whether you’re using a curling iron or flat iron, start styling your hair a few inches down from your scalp. And as you work your way down the strands, keep the ends a bit straighter rather than styling right to the bottom. Both of these tips will allow you to create a more underdone look, which is key to mastering a natural beach wave.
Once styling is complete, let your hair cool down! This is super important to help keep those fresh locks in place. Once the hair has cooled down, brush through the hair using a wide tooth comb. I personally love using the BrittyKitty Wide Tooth Comb from HAIRGOD.
To keep your hair in place, use a texturizing spray. One of my faves is the Amplify Texture Spray from äz. It’s a light texture based aerosol that gives a little grit and hold without oil, tack or weight. With just a few spritzes, voila! You’re ready to flaunt your perfect beach waves.
