How To: 4 Ways To Get Beachy Waves

With a Sea-Salt Spray

A sea salt spray is one of the most popular ways to get impromptu beach waves sans beach, as it quite literally mimics what the salt water from the beach does to your hair.

STEP 1: GRAB YOUR SEA SALT SPRAY

Spritz your sea salt spray throughout your mane and scrunch to amp up the texture. BEACH SPRAY by J Beverly Hills or Kevin Murphy’s HAIR RESORT works amazing. That’s it—say hello to gorgeous beach waves!

With a Curling Iron

STEP 1: APPLY A HEAT PROTECTANT

While your curling iron is heating up, apply a heat protectant like HEATED DEFENSE by Kevin Murphy.

STEP 2: GRAB YOUR CURLING IRON

Use a large barrel curling iron to curl large chunks of your hair. Then mess it up! Shake your head, toss your hair upside down and pull those curls into waves.

Finish the look by applying your favorite hair spray to keep your beach waves lasting all day.

With a Flat Iron

STEP 1: APPLY A HEAT PROTECTANT

While your flat iron is heating up, apply a heat protectant like THERMOTECT and or 5 IN 1 for added moisture and hold.

STEP 2: CURL YOUR HAIR

Grab a section of hair and start with your straightener towards the root of your hair. After clamping the straightener down, twist it so that it is at a vertical angle and your hair is wrapped around it. Continue to twist the straightener as you move down the section of hair.

STEP 3: APPLY A HAIR SPRAY

Finish the look by applying your favorite hair spray. We are loving J Beverly Hills HOLD ME LITE, it’s flexible and you can spray and move your fingers though your hair all day.

With a Texturizer

STEP 1: APPLY A TEXTURIZER

Work a texturizing pomade or paste— we love FINNISSAGE and CLEAR WAX by J Beverly Hills! —through your hair to turn your natural waves into a messy, piece-y style that's straight from the beach. That’s it!
