If there’s one no-fuss hair style we absolutely love for spring and summer, it’s beach waves. You don’t have to be at the beach to get them, and you don’t even need a blow-dryer. Here's how to get gorgeous no-heat beach waves in three easy steps:
1. Wash & Braid Your Hair the Night Before
Yes, this look requires some pre-bed planning, but the extra time you’ll save in morning is worth its weight in gold. Start by washing your hair (skip the in-shower conditioner). Use a shampoo that doesn’t strip your hair (we're loving this new Bumble and bumble Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo). Next towel dry your hair and braid it while its slightly damp into a single loose braid. Then fall asleep and let your braid work its magic.
2. Shake Out Your Braid in the Morning
Here’s where the time saving comes into play: You don’t need a blow-dryer, waver or any heat tool at all in the morning. Simply undo your braid, shake it out and let it air dry if it’s still a tad damp—when that’s the case, we recommend picking out your outfit and starting on your makeup before coming back to your waves.
3. Twist & Tousle
To add further definition and get the perfect beachy texture, twist 1-inch sections of hair and spritz on a salt or wave spray. Gently let the twist loose and tousle your beach waves for extra body and movement. Try Bumble and bumble's best-selling Surf Spray Beach Waves or R+Co's new Sail Soft Wave Spray to get this look!
