Beachy Waves Hair Tutorial

In December, I ran a reader survey and a lot of you wanted to see more hair tutorials. This is exciting because I’ve shared with you the beginning of my brunette to blonde hair journey and the hair products I live for but I’ve never done a hair tutorial. These beachy waves are quick & easy and in style and it will especially look good if you have a textured lob haircut.

To start, prep your hair the night before by washing and air drying it. In the morning, apply one pump of hair oil or spray heat protectant to the ends to prep the hair for heat. Quickly run a hair straightener through the ends to remove any hair bends or frizziness.

Next, starting at the back of your head and moving forward, you’re going to grab half an inch to an inch piece of hair and curl it away from your face for about 10-15 seconds. Leave about half an inch of hair off the barrel to create that textured, undone look. Release the curl from the wand by holding onto the end of the hair and sliding the barrel up.

The next piece of hair you grab will be in front of the first piece you curled (closer to your ear). This time you will curl the hair toward the face still leaving half an inch of hair off the barrel. After 15 seconds, pull the wand up and out from the hair. Keep doing this, interchanging the way you curl the hair until you reach the front.

Jessika’s tip: Curl the inch of hair that frames the face away from the face. This will open up the look versus make it look closed.

To style and build volume, lift up the top sections of your hair to spray texturizing spray onto your roots. Using your fingers. Rub the product into your roots as if you were shampooing your hair.   Then take a tiny amount of pomade and rub it to the ends of your hair. This will help to create those piecey, textured ends we want. When you’re done, use whatever pomade product is left on your fingers to smooth down fly aways and tousle the hair to make it look even more messy and textured. That’s it! A quick & easy beachy waves tutorial.
