Warmer Days and Beachy Waves

Beachy waves continue to be in trend.  Even clients without natural texture can sport this look with the right products and prep.  

 

What You Will Need:

     - Sectioning clips

     - Heat Protectant Spray, such as Its a 10 or Aveda Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator Spray 

     - Curling Iron

     - Texture or volumizing spray such as Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast or Fatboy Tousle & Go

 

Steps:

     1. Shampoo hair with a moisturizing shampoo to hydrate hair and prevent frizz.  Condition with a volumizing conditioner to add lift.

     2. Apply a multi-purpose leave in spray to add heat and thermal protection, lock out humidity and detangle hair.

     3. Blow dry the hair over-directing to add volume at the root.   The object is to blow dry the hair with some texture so that you can add in the waves.

     4. Spray sections of hair with a heat protectant and curl hair on a curling iron at least 1 1/4" or larger.  Be sure to leave the ends out.

     5. Alternate the direction of the curls; curl some sections away from the face and others toward the face to add to the messier texture.  You can also alternate the size of the sections you are curling.

     7. Finish the look with a texturizing or volumizing spray at the roots to tousle the waves.
