Step by step tips for getting beach waves at home
We've got a step-by-step guide to creating sexy beach waves at home in minutes from Butterfly Studio Salon owner Kattia Solano!
1 inch to 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron
A volumizing gel or spray such as Shu Uemura Tasai Cream
A light hold hairspray such as the heat activated setting spray, Soft Lacquer by Oribe
Step 1: Apply the volumizing gel or spray directly onto wet hair.
Step 2: Flip your head over and blow dry your hair to add volume to the roots.
Step 3: To add smoothness before using your curling iron, twist large sections of the hair around your finger starting at the bottom and twisting until there is tension.
Step 4: Separate your hair into four sections and apply your light hold hairspray directly onto the areas you will be curling (about 3 inches down from the roots and 3 inches from the ends).
Step 5: Place curling iron about 3 inches from the roots and wrap medium sections of the hair around the barrel. Be sure to stay away from the ends (you want your ends to appear straight).
Step 6: Continue around the head until all hair is curled.
Step 7: Apply a light hold hairspray all over and lightly scrunch the hair with your fingers.
