Gather the upper half of your hair and clip it. It’s like putting your hair in a half updo but only for a short time.
Take a section of hair around 3 centimeters wide from the unclipped part of your hair. Wrap this section around a curling iron for a few seconds. Make sure that you curl your hair towards your face so your curls won’t look like flyaways when done. Repeat until all unclipped sections of your hair have been curled.
Remove the clip and start curling the upper half of your hair. Create a messy, beach wave look by teasing sections of your hair using your thumb and index finger. Hold the tip of your hair and move fingers upwards, then scrunch your hair to achieve the desired messy effect.
