No-heat Beachy Waves
Want to learn how to give your hair easy, beachy waves? Fear not! Read this easy how-to for a damage-resistant solution:
You will need:
-A comb or brush
-Water or salt spray
-A hair tie
-Possibly a clip
Begin will your hair, un-styled. This look will be easier for people with super-straight hair. Be sure to brush!
Dampen your hair, either with water or with salt spray... whichever one is available to you. Brush before you continue to step three.
Begin by twisting on section of your hair. I'm doing a total of three sections, because 1.) I want looser waves, so I'm only doing a few, thick ones. If you want thinner, tighter waves, do more. If you have extremely thick hair, do more no matter what. And 2.) My hair is parted on the side, not the middle. If your hair is parted in the middle, to even amounts of twist on each side of your head. I'm doing two on the side with more hair, and one twist on the side with less. Twist the hair depending on which direction you want your curls to be turned. I want my curls turned away from my face on each side, so I'm twisting from the inside front to the outside back.
I'm now doing the second twist on the side with more hair. It's facing the same direction as the other one on this side.
Next, I'm twisting the other side. It's the other direction so it's also turned away from my face, but on that side.
Next, pull all twists either to the back or one of the sides. Braid however you please. It's easy with three, but if you do more, put some twists in the same 1/3 section or 2/3 sections of the braid.
Get to braiding, yo. It can be messy. The finished look is the one that people will be seeing (maybe). The wetter your hair, the longer you wait. Be sure it's dry before you undo it.
Tah-dah! Spray if you desire. Have fun wow-ing the others around you!
