Hair how to: Beachy waves

I for one love a good wave. My hair can be naturally wavy but it can be quite inconsistent so I was delighted to receive the Babyliss wave envy hair styler for Christmas. It's great for adding volume to hair and achieving a brilliant wave like AnnaSophia Robb's locks in 'The Carrie Diaries'.


Here's how I achieve the look;

 Step One: Spray hair with a heat protection spray. I use Salon chic straightening mist. Then tie up the top part of your hair so the under layers can easily be waved. Leave some hair loose to wave. Use the styler and, each section at a time, clamp the styler at the top of the piece of hair and hold in place for 8-15 seconds depending on how thin/thick your hair is.
When this is done move down the piece of hair and repeat until you reach the end of the piece. Repeat on other sections.           
                   

Step Two:When you finish all the hair that is loose, add a little hairspray and then let the bobble loose. Repeat tying it but this time take up less hair so there is more left to wave. Repeat the action described in step one, clamping sections and moving down until all the hair down is wavy. Ad spray when finishing a whole section.





Step Three: Repeat step two until all your hair is wavy. Then move onto the fringe. Sometimes the fringe can be a bit flyway (I speak from experience so if you don't want to wave your fringe I suggest clipping it back into a quiff. 

Step four: When you are finished redo any pieces that haven't taken as well as the rest of the hair.                                                                                                                                                  

Step five: Run a serum through your hair to tame fly aways, polish the look and add shine. I suggest Aussie curl definition soft feel serum.
It is great for curly hair and also for taming the 'bedhead' look, plus even though it's for curls I've started using it when I straighten my hair too.
                       





                                                                                
Step six: If you really want to emphasise the messy beach look a salt spray is essential. I always use Superdrug expertise salt spray. It's inexpensive too. Simply spray the salt spray on and run hands through your hair to add the messy effect. Finish with hairspray, and voila!
                                                                              
The finished result?


Have a fabulous weekend!
