How To Get The Beachy Waves Look

How To Get The Beachy Waves Look

How to get the beachy waves look is the talk on everyone’s tongue and was on Arden Warhol’s New York Fashion Week runway simply because it’s just a down right sexy hairstyle. With products from Alterna, Rock Your Hair, Joico and OGX, you can create this look using my preferred method – on day old hair.

When You Have Natural Waves

If you’ve already got natural waves, your first step is to bend over and let your hair hang as you apply Michael O’Rourke Rock Your Hair Size Matters Big Volume Root Lift ($18.97, Beachy waves requires not a lot, but some volume, so spray this product throughout from root to end to get fullness – and don’t worry won’t weigh your hair down.

Create Your Own Waves

If you don’t have the waves, but wanna fake it ’til you make it, apply OGX Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream ($5.99, drugstores) on damp hair,  twist your hair into a top knot, let it down and then let it air dry. You may need to use a barrel curling iron to refresh some waves that didn’t take with this DIY process. hueknewit-HAUTE-HAIR-OGX-moroccan-curl-cream

Give It Texture

Keep It In Place

To keep some of your beach waves in place, use Joico Power Spray ($16.99, – get serious, yet flexible hold as it protects your hair from humidity and protects your hair from heat styling…lasting up to three days!

Make It Shine

As a last step, gives your hair a shine boost with Alterna Haircare Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist ($25, – a lightweight absorbing mist that can be a style primer, but also eliminates frizz and it best used on normal hair types.

Extensions Are Your Friend
And for those of you who couldn’t be bothered with following the above steps and want this carefree look without the work, think Latina Body Natural Remi hair extensions from the Hair Factory. This texture has a natural-looking, deep-wave pattern that mimics beachy hair – just add it, maintain it and you’ve got gorgeous hair that you can customize if you’re feeling creative or leave the wefts exactly how you bought them.
