Achieve that effortless summer wave with this simple curling technique. Wrapping hair around the iron instead of rolling creates a perfectly loose curl. Watch our editor as she explains her beachy wave secrets in this 2 minute video!
- Start with hair down
- Section bottom first. Wrap hair (about the size of the rod) around curling iron. Leave on iron for 4 seconds and pull straight. Continue bottom section curling in all the same direction.
- Next, take the section above and curl in the opposite direction. Continue to alternate directions with each section and spray.
- Start at roots and rake through with hands. Product is key for beachy waves. Mist all over with hair powder spray or hair spray.
