How to: No Heat Beach Waves Tutorial

A special thank you to göt2b for partnering with me to bring you this post. As always, thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!

One of my favorite ways to wear my hair is with messy beach waves look. It’s also my favorite because it doesn’t require a lot. All you need is the right kind of product and you’re really good to go.

Today I want to share with you my tips and tricks on how I get my messy beach wave look. It’s going to be mind-blowing (I promise!).

First, let’s talk about having the right products. You want products that will give you a lot of spit and grit… well not spit but grit. You need lots of texture for this look. The goal is for it to be messy, like you just came from the beach hence the name, beach waves!

Now let’s talk about how to use these products…

First, I wash my hair, (duh!) and once I am out the shower and dried off I will move on to my makeup and I will leave my hair wrapped up in a towel like in the first picture. I DO NOT comb my hair after my shower. I literally flip my head over, wrap it up and let the towel really soak up the water. Once I am done with my make up I will use my mesmerizing SPRTIZ (it’s lightweight, smells great and preps your hair for your undone look) and tousle my hair with my hands. Normally by the time I use my spray my hair is about half dry.

Next, I use my mess-merizing PUTTY: FYI- do not use a lot of this putty. Less is more, or you will end up with very stiff hair (lesson learned for me). You want juuuuuust enough to give your hair texture but to also help you create that messy look. You can use the putty on damp or dry hair, I prefer to wait until my hair is pretty much dry.

Last but not least I use the mess-merizing HAIRSPRAY: This bad boy will help you finish off your look! The texturizing hairspray is going to help you achieve touchable textures with a casual, natural finish and help you maintain you textured style!

    • My hair isn’t straight, I do have a bit of wave (very little though). Which is why I won’t comb by hair after it being wrapped in the towel, because if I did, it would dry straight.

  • Great tips! I just finished blow drying my hair, and have mentor in a like of swear! Not good right after a shower! My hair is pretty straight so I’m skeptical about getting as much wave as you have but I’ll give this a try next time. ??Here’s to hoping! ?

    • Hey Paula, I think the key for you will be the same for me, don’t brush your hair you unwrap it from the towel. I say that because if I brush my hair and try to do this it doesn’t work out and my hair looks more wavy instead of curly. Also, try not to run your hands too much through your hair. Hopefully you get good results! Keep me posted! 🙂

  • Love it! I’ll try your tips. I have an a-line bob and my hair is wavy in its natural form. I’m such a low key gal when it comes to make up and hair and your tips always seem to help out in my routine. Thanks so much!

    • Hey Claudia! I am right there with you! I don’t always have tons of time to get ready to it’s gotta be easy and low key for me! I hope you have fun trying this look out! 🙂

  • Can’t wait to try this out! Love giving my hair a break in the summer and staying away from constantly blow drying it! And that blue eye liner looks awesome on you!!

  • How many days in a row will you do this look? Is your hair gross the second day or is it wearable for two days?

  • Would this work with thick hair? My hair is a bit thick and has a slight wave to it… I would just hate to do this and it come out like an Afro!

    • Hey Clara, I think it would, you would have to use a bit more product I think. Does your hair get frizzy? If so, I would suggest using a good shampoo and conditioner for help tame the frizzy hair, and also apply a bit of smoothing serum to control the frizz.

  • Hey, just wanted to point this out. It’s important when blogging to make sure everything you write is correct.

    ‘All you need is the right kind of product and your really good to go’

    The above sentence is wrong. It should be ‘you’re’ not ‘your’. This is because ‘you’re’ is short for ‘you are’ – which is what YOU’RE trying to say.

    Hope that helps.

  • I absolutely love this tutorial and have been obsessed with it this whole summer! I actually just left a link to it in my latest blog post 🙂

    Thank you Elly!
