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 the messy beach waves look. It’s also my favorite because it doesn’t require a lot of work. All you need is the right kind of product and you’re 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 blow your mind (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!
