How to get beach waves with straighteners

If you have forever straight hair, you may need the help of a heat styler to create that tousled trend. Using straighteners is also a great way to create beach waves for those with shorter and finer hair. If you find your waves losing their oomph easily, try our ultra-lightweight Luxurious Volume Hairspray to hold your style in place.

How to get beach waves with a curling wand

For glam beach curls, we recommend using a curling wand, starting the curl half way down your hair strands for the perfect beach to bar look. This style looks its best when your hair is looking healthy and shiny, so apply our Detox & Repair Masque at least once a week and leave on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. If your hair needs some extra TLC, discover our other top tips on how to get healthy-looking hair.

Beachy doesn’t have to mean messy, so to ensure a low-key glossy look, apply a small amount of our Secret Agent Touch-Up Crème to the ends of your hair to seal in moisture, keep frizz and flyaways at bay and to give a shiny finished texture!

If you’ve now got waves that have left you wanting to go on your hols, discover our entire Beach Blonde hair range for a guaranteed vacation look all year round! Great news is that Beach Blonde products are suitable for all hair colours, not just for blondes!
