How I get loose, beachy waves (with video)

January 24, 2021

Tomorrow is Monday and I want to give you some beauty inspiration to kick off the week. I’ve picked the brain of my friends– in and out of TV news– for years trying to figure out how they get such amazing curls. They always made it sound easy, but I struggled.

Finally, within the last few years I’ve learned my hair better and figured out what works for me. I mean, I’m no expert, but these are the things I do and I like the way it looks! But remember, everyone’s hair is different. What works for me might now work for you. I hope my tips help you figure it out!

I have pretty thin hair but I have a lot of it. This takes me less than 10 minutes to do.

Here are my tips:
(Skip straight to the video if you’d rather just watch and listen)
Start with the hair closest to your face.
I use this wand from Bedhead.
Taking thin, even sections, I curl the hair from root to end.
I curl away from my face. I know some people alternate, but I find it easier to do it all the same way.
If I miss any hair I just go back and curl it by itself later.
After it’s all curled I don’t brush it out. I just run my fingers through the strands until it has the bounce I like.
Sometimes I use hairspray, but it’s not an every day thing for me.

Here’s a hairspray that I’ve used and liked. Also, I’ve heard great things about this finishing spray! If you give this a try let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear what you think.

Also welcoming any and all other hair tips for loose, beachy looking curls.
