How To: Beachy Waves

Share it Please
I've always been fairly happy with my hair. It curls easily with an iron, holds styles easily, and is so stick straight on it's own that I never need to flat iron. But guys, I'm envious of everyone else's beach waves. Everyone makes it sound so easy, spritz a little sea salt spray here, tousle your hair there, but it never works for me. Sometimes my hair will hold for one minute, maybe two, but the messy beach look is gone by the time I walk out the door and just looks generally messy. My hair may be stubborn, but I'm even more stubborn than it. I've kept trying and I think I finally found a way that works!


1.) Start with damp (not wet) hair. If your hair is dry simply wet your hair brush in the sink and run it over your head a couple times. 2.) Spritz with Oribe Apr├Ęs Beach Wave and Shine Spray all over. If you can get a normal sea salt spray to work for you, go for it! Oribe is not cheap ($21.50 for the travel size and $39.00 for the full bottle), but it is the only thing I've been able to find that actually works with my hair. Plus it really does smell amazing. I've had people compliment me on my perfume when I'm really only wearing this hair spray. I do think it is worth the money as it functions as promised and the bottle lasts a while.


3.) Plait your hair into a French braid (tutorial here). 4.) Let sit for several hours or at least until hair is entirely dry. I like to do this before bed and take the braid out in the morning. Braids are extremely easy to sleep on and keep your hair from getting tangled while you sleep. 5.) Take out the braid and run through your hair with your fingers. If the braid left deep creases feel free to use a hair brush. If not, only use your fingers so you don't pull out the waves. 6.) Spritz lightly with more Oribe (or other spray) and slightly tousle. All done!

  15. So beachy! Love this look on you!
    I'm one of those annoying girls who wash, add a little wave-inducing product, and then let my hair air dry to get beachy bed head. We can still be friends though, right? :)

    1. You are so sweet, thank you! Unfortunately, my hair is dyed (I naturally have brown hair), but I'm flattered that it must look natural! I'm glad you enjoyed the tutorial and I hope it works well for you!
