You can also opt to find a recipe to make your own D.I.Y sea salt spray. Chances are, you have the ingredients you need already. Most recipes call for a mixture of sea salt (obviously), coconut oil (for hair hydration), and warm water.
3. Use A Hot Hairstyling Tool
If you’re used to curling your hair with a curling iron or straightening your hair with a flat iron, did you know you can also recreate beachy waves using these types of tools? Don’t forget to use a heat protectant when trying out these techniques.
When using a curling iron, it’s key to A. wrap the hair loosely around the barrel and B. to not hold the hair in place on the barrel for very long. For this look, we do not want to create super define and perfect curls. Loose curls brushed out are what mimic natural waves in your hair.
There are a few different techniques to achieve this look with a straightener. Personally, I find pointing my straightener downward and slowly twisting away from my face gives me the waves that I want. For extra hold and volume, I will spray either hairspray or sea salt spray.
Remember, when it comes to trying any new hairstyle, all hairstyles and hair lengths are different, and practice makes perfect! So get to practicing creating beach waves on your own hair before the summer shenanigans start.
