Recreate a Natural Beach Wave
Even the girls with pin straight hair get a little bit of wave from the salty ocean water and for those of us lacking body and volume in our strands this is very exciting. This tutorial is equal parts smoothing and texturizing to help you find that perfect middle ground.
Start off by washing your hair with Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner to infuse your hair with heavy moisture and some very necessary keratin proteins. After that, gently squeeze out excess water from your hair and prepare for phase two of this laughably simple styling routine.
Grab a bottle of Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray and go heavy-handed spritzing it all over your hair. Our mantra is, ‘the more salt spray, the better’ so don’t be shy.
Once you’ve given your hair a heavy dose of salt spray you’re ready for the trickiest part: don’t touch your hair. Flip your strands over into a deep side part and let them air dry and react naturally to the salt spray formula. You’ll be left with the easiest, beachiest waves of your life. Pair them with a red lip and a killer heel for a look that’s truly evening-ready.
