Quick Summer Beach Waves

So, as much as we’d like to wake up extra early every morning to bathe our hair in beach water.. we’ve realized this just isn’t realistic– and we live in Santa Barbara! Beach waves aren’t only the ultimate summer ‘do, they’re year round if you live a #boho4ever lifestyle. We found this easy, adorable hair tutorial illustration from She Lets Her Hair Down and had to share! All you need is hairspray, a curling iron, and hair clip and it’s hello to easy breezy beach waves in 4 steps. Killer, right? Let’s get started.

What You’ll Need:

1″ curling iron


medium hair clip (to hold hair sections)



First, prep your hair by spraying a light hold hairspray all over.

1. In sections, curl all of your hair so it goes away from your face.

2. Without clamping the iron shut, hold your curling iron with the tip pointing down and wrap your hair around it starting as close to your scalp as possible.

3. After curling each section, tug on it by holding the ends and pulling down on your hair. This will give you a soft be achy waves as opposed to Sweet 16 curls!

4. Once everything is curled, tousle and toss out your hair. You’re done!
