The Haircut

The way you can style your hair is determined in part by the way your hair is cut. Those who don’t have any layers in their hair will find it hard to create beach waves. Your stylist can help guide you in the best length for your hair to use this style. For most hair types, this will call for layers to be cut right around your face, but leaving the back for the most part longer. This will help your hair to be lighter, holding the curl better.


Add Product

There are products out there that will make it easier for your hair to hold a curl. These should be applied after getting out of the shower. These products can help to add body, moisture, and curl to your hair. Try to apply the product, then scrunch it to increase the curl. After you have dried it there might have to be some additional curling that needs to take place.


Flat Iron


There are ways to achieve the perfect curl using a flat iron for the process. This may seem counterintuitive for most people, but when done right, it delivers a nice loose curl. Take a small section of your hair, clamping down with the flat iron near the root. While pulling it down the hair, rotate it halfway. Repeat this throughout your hair until you have the desired beach look.


The Bun

The bun has become an increasingly popular hairstyle, but it can be used for more than just keeping your hair out of your face. For those who often find themselves in a hurry in the morning, try washing your hair at night, drying it until it is only just damp, then putting it in a bun to sleep on. Twist the bun in a way that will give a smooth curl instead of kinks. You can do this more tight or loose depending on what kind of curls you most want. When you wake up in the morning, you will have a faster time styling your hair.

There are a few different ways to get the perfect beach waves for your hair. If you are looking to perfect this style, experiment with these tips to get the most from your hair. Some of these changes may be just what you need to get the best look for your hair.
