How to Get Beachy Waves Year-Round How to Get Beachy Waves Year-Round How to Get Beachy Waves Year-Round

During the summer, beachy waves are everywhere you look—and for good reason! Lazy beach days and poolside adventures are the prime environment for this low maintenance hairstyle, after all. But what about those not-so-warm days in the middle of winter when a trip to the salty air just isn’t in the cards? Well, you can still rock beachy waves regardless of the weather outside. You just have to get a little more creative in order to bring your flirty, carefree hairstyle to life. We’ve got you covered with two beachy wave tutorials below, along with the products (including shampoo, conditioner, hair mousse, and hair spray) you’ll need to bring this hairstyle to life. 

HOW TO GET BEACHY WAVES USING HEAT TOOLS

With the right styling tools and products, you can achieve surfer girl-inspired wavy hair without stepping foot in the ocean.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo

L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse

Blow-dryer

Diffuser

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Start with freshly washed hair. Since jumping into the ocean in freezing temperatures to achieve beachy waves isn’t necessarily the best idea, simply hop in your shower to wash your hair with a nourishing system of shampoo and conditioner.

Step 2: Add definition with hair mousse. Grab a can of hair mousse and pump a dollop of it into your palm. Work the hair mousse through your hair to help add definition and hold to your waves.

Step 3: Diffuse your hair. Next, add a diffusing attachment to the end of your blow-dryer and use medium heat until your hair is almost completely dry dry. Using a diffuser is key because it can help bring out the natural wave in your hair. 

Step 4: Section your hair. While hair is still a tiny bit wet, divide it into a few sections to create concentrated waves all over your head. Depending on how defined you want your beachy waves to be, create more or less sections (more sections = tighter waves, less sections = looser waves).

Step 5: Rope braid. Take each section of hair and create a rope braid. Instead of tying your braids off with mini elastics, simply wrap them into small twisted buns and pin them in place with a few bobby pins. It’s this twisting and turning technique that is going to bring your beachy waves to life.

Step 6: Finish drying your hair. Now that your buns are all in place, take the diffuser off of your blow-dryer and blast each bun until dry.

Step 7: Undo your buns. All you have to do is unpin each of your buns and shake out your rope braids for a head full of beachy waves. Oh hey, beach babe!

HOW TO GET BEACHY WAVES BY AIR DRYING YOUR HAIR 

If you have damaged hair or simply want to take a break from heat styling, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock beachy waves! Rather than grabbing a blow-dryer, take a heat-free approach by air drying your hair instead. It’s super-easy! 

What you’ll need: 

L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo

L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Begin in the shower. Use a moisturizing system of shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair. 

Step 2: Spritz on wave spray. Apply a wave spray generously from root to tip on damp hair. Be sure to spray in between each layer of hair to help create more texture. 

Step 3: Use your hands. After spraying your hair with wave spray, massage your roots to help add some volume. Next, place your hands under the ends of your damp hair and scrunch upwards towards your roots to create natural-looking waves. Make sure to be gentle with your hair since it’s more fragile when it’s wet.

Step 4: Air dry. After scrunching your hair, go about your routine as you normally would while your hair air dries. Before you know it, you’ll have a head full of beachy waves to flaunt for endless summer vibes—even if it’s the middle of fall.
