Beach Waves Tutorial


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!
