How To Create The Perfect Beach Wave In Under 15 Minutes
Posted by Nitya Uppal in Hair
The reason most of us are unwilling to experiment with our hairstyles is the time and effort it takes to whip up a creative look. The repeated attempts to perfect that winged eyeliner or the many complicated steps to blend our contouring has us rushing through the rest of our beauty routine. So much so that our hair mostly end up being quickly straightened or thrown into a messy bun, hoping that they look stylish. But what if we told you that there is a simple and easy way to create the perfect beach wave under 15 minutes, right at home? That’s right, no expensive salon visits necessary! If you’re looking for a lesson on how to make your hair thicker and stylish, read on for a easy way to create a gorgeous wavy mane.
The best part about this wavy hair look is that you can create it by simply using your straightening iron, you don't need to invest in a separate curler. Here’s how you can achieve the easy-going look : start with your standard shampoo-conditioning-drying routine. If you'd like some extra bounce, before drying, cover your wet hair with a volumanizer - we recommend Phyto's Phytovolume Actif Volumizer Spray £17.50. This product contains keratin amino acids that coat your hair and helps increase the diameter of each strand, giving your mane extra body and elasticity. Next, before you blast your hair with heat, protect it using Beauty Works Heat Protection Spray £11.99, combing your hair through so that the formula spreads evenly. It is a lightweight, non-greasy hairspray that does an excellent job of shielding your tresses from heat damage and leaves you with smooth and manageable locks.
Now to create the look, there is no need to pin your hair into sections, all you need to do is simply use your hair straightener on the top of an inch of your hair, twisting it away from your face as you slowly pull it down. Repeat the same on the remaining tresses and finish the look by spritzing on a generous amount of Kérastase Couture Styling Spray A Porter 'Beach Effect' £21.00. It is an innovative new spray that is designed to give your hair volume, body and lift with a glossy finish.
The look you’re going for is carelessly chic, so don’t worry about it looking too neat - the perfect waves are never meant to appear too structured. And once you train yourself to create these easy-going waves, be prepared for all your friends coaxing you to work on their hair as well.
Are you looking for a way to create wavy hair without using any heat? Then we have another amazing technique you can try at home. All you need to do is apply Kerastase Nutritive Serum Oleo Relax For Dry Rebellious Hair £15.65 and divide your hair into 4 sections to create four separate braids. The serum will discipline your dry, frizzy hair with its softening formula to leave your tresses feeling silky smooth and more manageable, while the braids will give the waves some much-needed structure. This is by far the simplest way to make sure you wake up to gorgeous beach waves.
When it comes to hair trends of 2016, wavy hair are everywhere and you can tell simply by looking at runaway/red carpet reports. These looks are easy-going, gorgeous and let’s just say it doesn't take a village to create them. A little extra effort on your hair and you’re sure to be the best dressed person around!
