Good news: when it comes to creating beach weaves you don’t have to be a pro because with this hairstyle, imperfections are key. To create more volume and hold, start to build up your hair with a plumping hair mousse. Apply a pump to a towel or cloth, pick up the product with a chunky comb and apply to your hair from roots till ends. Do not rub the mousse in your hands first, as this will cause the mousse to lose its texture and therefore its plumping effect. Beach waves are characterized by the messy, wavy structure – so using a texturizing or (nourishing) sea salt spray is paramount.
This is how you apply a texturizing spray best:
- Apply from ear height down using gentle squeezing motions
- Break your hair up in sections, twist and let air-dry
- You can optionally speed up the process by using a blow-dryer
Do you have super straight hair? Then use a curling iron, but don’t curl each strand in the same direction and leave the roots and ends of your hair out of the curling process. The goal is to create a natural and effortless look, so try curling the sections in opposite directions.
