It looks like you already have beach waves. Your hair looks wavy - not really curly, so I am a little lost regarding the style you're looking for. As for your routine, I second (or third?) the idea of losing some length and adding layers to help with volume so you can lose the duckbill clips and plopping. Then your routine should be low-maintenance. Just keep your hair at least shoulder length.
3b/c, medium-coarse, low porosity, high density
