How to Get a Beachy Waves Hairstyle

The New Beachy Waves


We're excited to present this story from our friends at Allure:

The tousled, sexy waves are always a favorite, and it's exciting to see the look revamped on the Spring runways. The new, relaxed version is a piece-y, beachy version that's completely Fall appropriate.

The trick is to make sure your waves are just rough enough to look cool (like the styles at Alberta Ferretti, above, and Burberry) and still sweater-appropriate—not too perfect or so extreme that they look like you might actually have come off a beach. "It's got a hippie vibe," said hairstylist Guido of the look backstage at Alberta Ferretti. "It's young and innocent." To create the effect, Guido avoided curling the entire head of hair. Instead, he wrapped random pieces around a 1.5-inch curling iron, working from about ear level down and holding the iron horizontally. Then, he doused the ends in Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist for "an oily, wet effect." But you can use a lighter hand to add just a touch of shine—without going full hippie.
