If you love styling your hair or watched hair tutorials on YouTube, you probably know about beach waves. It is a highly sought after hairstyle that exudes that effortlessly chic look seen in super models, think Gisele Bundchen or the Victoria's Secret angels. These women have texturized hairstyles with loose waves at the ends making them look like they spend some time on the beach. At the same time, the soft curls make the hairstyle look natural and easy to do.
Check out these tips to create your own effortless beach waves:
1.) Start with freshly washed hair. Use a texturizing spray like sea salt spray or dry shampoo to add grip and texture to your strands.
2.) Start forming a three-strand braid from the mid-length to the ends of your hair.
3.) Leave the braids on for several hours. Or, you can sleep on it overnight.
4.) Remove the braids. This will reveal beautifully loose waves. Brush out the curls a little using your fingers to loosen them up.
5.) You can spritz adequate amount of low to medium hold hairspray. This will make the curls stay for a long time without getting too stiff.
