Beach Waves Hair Tutorial


Hey guys! Long time no talk! Andrew and I have finally started to settled down in our new house. I just got a desk so now I feel like I can start getting back to a normal schedule. I’m so excited to share some home decor posts on my blog. I will have a lot of before and after pictures! With the weather getting warmer I have a hair tutorial that is perfect for summer days. Even though I do my hair like this pretty much year round! Beach waves have been my go-to for a long time now. I honestly feel most myself when my hair is wavy.¬†I love to style my hair with these curls¬†because they look completely effortless and last a few days. Watch the video for a step by step how to! You can also shop the products I used below.

Beach Waves Tutorial

It’s hair day! So I get a lot of questions about my hair in all of my YouTube videos so I figured I would do and ‘updated’ hair tutorial. This is typically how I style my hair when I want it curly. Sometimes I use different or less products and sometimes I’ll make the curls slightly tighter. I also have a curling iron by Hot Tools that I use when I want more traditional curls instead of waves. Either way, I always style it the same (see end of video). My two biggest tips are to tease your hair and mess up all your curls so they don’t look perfect. I hope you all enjoy this video and find it helpful! Thanks so much for watching!
