How to do: 15-min Messy Beach Waves

How to do: 15-min Messy Beach Waves

Everyone in God’s green earth has definitely experienced being late at least once. Personally, I can’t even count how many times I’ve been late for work or for an appointment and I always just end up tying my hair into a bun or a ponytail (guilty! the easy way out!).

Since I started using hair wax (totally amazing stuff!), I found a way to make messy beach waves and still be on time for whatever it is that I have to do! It’s only going to take 15 minutes so it’s definitely worth a try!

Ready to make some waves?

 

All you need are:

The key is the hair wax so make sure you have yours.

  • Hair Wax – using FIX Professional Hairlastic.
  • Any comb that you have – using a wide toothed comb because I have a problem with hair fall.
  • Bendy rollers or Elastic bands – either one will do.
  • Hair drying tools – I don’t like heat on my hair so I’m using my good old fashion fan.

One

Let’s say you just stepped out of the shower and you’re hair is wet. First thing to do is to towel dry your hair and then use a blower (or in my case, a fan)  to dry it a little. We need your hair to be damp and not really dripping wet.

 

Two

Next is to take your comb and run it all through your hair to untangle it.

TIP: Avoid using a brush when your hair is wet. It will be prone to breakage. Instead, use any type of comb. When you have a problem with hair fall, a wide toothed comb is the best option.

A wide toothed comb is your best option when you have hair fall problem.

Still part of step two, you must now get a bit of hair wax and apply it on the ends of your hair. Why just at the ends? Because hair wax is sticky thus helping mold the ends of your hair into curls. Avoid putting wax on the top part of your head; you want that part to be free flowing and not sticky.

 

Three

While your hair is still damp, divide it into sections. Now, begin rolling each section into the bendy curler.

The thicker the section of hair the looser the curl.

TIP: The thicker the section of hair rolled into the bendy curler the, the looser the curl. The thinner the section of hair, the tighter the curl.

Secure the bendy curler properly, making sure that it doesn’t unravel when you let it go. I did 5; 2 on each side then a big one at the back.

Four

Play the waiting game. All you have to do is to let your hair dry out by itself which should talk about 5-7 minutes. For the mean time, you can choose what outfit you want to wear or you can do your makeup (multi-tasking!)

TIP: When you feel like your hair is not that dry yet, you can use your blower and blast the damp parts to make them totally dry.

 

FIve

Is your hair dry yet? When it is, you can now remove the bendy curlers. Remove them one by one.

The curls will look tight (and not quite there yet) right after you unravel them but we can style that right after so concentrate on taking out the bendy curlers.

At this point, the curls are going to look tight.

Six

Apply a bit of wax again on the ends of your hair using your fingers. This will also separate the curls. It also helps when you scrunch sections of your hair to define the beach waves that you just made. Now, style as desired.

Scrunching helps define your curls better.

ALTERNATIVE

If you don’t have bendy curlers, all you need to do is repeat steps 1 to 6 but this time wrap your hair into a semi-loose bun using elastic bands

Repeat steps 1 to 6 but this time use elastic bands instead of bendy rollers.

3 Minutes for steps 1 to 3; 5 to 7 minutes for step 4 and then maybe 5 minutes or less for steps 5 and 6. Easy Peasy Beach Wavey!

How did your curls end up?

    Looks great! I’m always a fan of loose, beach curls :) When you do this with a hair elastic, have you gotten the same effect that is shown in the pictures? Whenever I try to curl my hair with a bun, it tends to come out crimped and uneven.

      Hi Jes, it does come out uneven if you curl your hair into one bun. It will look funny but try sectioning your hair and then curl them into little buns :) I hope that works :)
