The Ponytail Technique
If you have long hair (think down to your shoulder blades or longer), you can use the ponytail trick. Simply pull your hair back into a ponytail and wrap strands of your hair around a curling iron. Once all the hair has been curled, let it down, scrunch it, and spray it with hairspray. This technique allows you to easily track what hair has and hasn’t been curled however it can be pretty time intensive based on how thick your hair is.
The Buns Technique
Even easier than the ponytail are the buns. Wet your hair then part it down the middle. Secure each side up in a bun and wait for your hair to dry. Then, let your hair down and run your finger through the strands to separate the waves. Once you have the look you want, spray it with hairspray to cement the hold. If the top of your hair is too flat, tease the strands close to the scalp to add body before setting the look.
The Flat Iron Technique
If you have a flat iron, beach waves are super easy to make, regardless of how long your hair is. Part your hair in half. Take one side and twist it tight. Use the flat iron along the entirety of the twist, undo it gently, tease the hair, and apply your hairspray. Do the same for the other side and you have yourself a beautiful set of beach curls in less than ten minutes.
