These NYFW Street Style Stars Show Us How to Wear Beach Waves for Fall

Transitional styling is perhaps the most foolproof of fashion formulas out there. Ideal for those days that are cold in the morning and sweltering in the sun by mid-afternoon, transitional styles give you the warmth you need in the cooler moments with the flexibility of removing layers when the need arises. Think lightweight dresses and leather jackets, chunky knits over crop tops, or a long cardigan over jeans and a t-shirt. We’re calling it: Beach waves for fall (as inspired by the street style set at NYFW) is the transitional hairstyle of this season. Here’s why:

Wearable on every hair length and nearly every hair type, beach waves for fall are the easy ‘it girl’ style that matches pretty much everything. It’s ideal as the base for a more intricate braided style, beautiful when worn alone, and equally perfect peeking out from under some of the season’s hottest accessories. Think headbands, hats, and sparkling clips.

We like to think of beach waves for fall as the perfect in-between style in a number of ways. Not only is it neutral enough to style to be worn with a number of different kinds of looks, but it’s also a great way to hold onto summer. Beach waves bring that laidback textured feel of days at the beach straight into the cooler months.

One of the easiest ways to create beach waves for fall is with the flat iron method. Use your flat iron to create simple waves throughout the mid-lengths of your hair. The secret to achieving that Instagram beach wave look is leaving the ends of each section straight. This leaves you with a piece-y textured feel. Finish off with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2 to lock in a smooth finish.

This trend unquestionably the best transitional style to get in on this season!
