Admittedly, I’m all about quick and simple for 99% of things in life so hair care is no exception. As previously mentioned here, I’ve worn my hair au natural for years. I spray some of this leave-in conditioner after I shower and brush it… that’s the extent of my lazy minimal hair routine. Most days, I can get away with little maintenance but there are some days that you want a little extra somethin’ somethin’, you know? I love the look of quick, effortless beachy waves and if you do too, keep reading! This easy hair tutorial will have you looking like a Victoria’s Secret model in no time (okay, maybe 10 minutes).

1. Start off with dry hair. (I have naturally wavy hair so I typically air-dry it. I think it gives me a more natural look when my own waves are mixed in throughout but that’s my preference for my hair type. It’s totally fine if you need to blow-dry it or have straight hair).

2. Once your hair is completely dry and brushed thoroughly (this brush is my #HG because it’s so gentle on knots and doesn’t make your hair frizzy), split it into two sections, top and bottom, or 3 sections, bottom, middle, and crown, dependent upon preference.

3. I always spray a heat protectant to protect my hair and help prevent any damage that using continuous heat may cause.

4. Grabbing 1″ or 2″ sections of hair (I like to start from the back and work my way to the front), hold the wand facing down and wrap the hair around the barrel away from your face. Repeat for the top layer. (The Whirl Convertible by T3 is my favorite tool for this look because it heats up in under a minute, the tapered wand creates the perfect curls, and my hair lasts all day. Did I mention that it’s white and rose gold?).

5. Once the hair is all curled, gently run your fingers throughout to separate the curls (this is where I blend the curled pieces with my natural waves). Running your fingers or a brush through your hair is key for creating natural-looking beachy waves. Note: It is really important to let the curls cool before doing so, otherwise they will fall out faster.

5. I personally don’t use hair spray because I don’t like the way my hair looks as the waves loosen up throughout the day. Instead, I love adding a texturizing spray because it gives my hair the grit it needs to stay put without being sticky or stiff. I spray it all over my hair and play around with it to get the desired volume. I read a ton of reviews before buying but this one, although a little pricey, is absolutely worth the investment in my opinion. It does a great job at giving my flat hair some life and also doubles as a dry shampoo so… #beachywavesfordays.

6. I add one pump of this smoothing serum to the roots of my hair to tame any fly aways and run it through the lengths to combat frizziness.

7. Voila! Natural beachy waves in 10 minutes!

    Your hair looks gorgeous! I follow almost this exact same routine to get my beach waves too. Isn’t the T3 whirl the best?!

      Thank you Kathryn! I highly suggest T3 because you only have to buy one tool and then can customize and interchange all of the barrels!
