8 Simple & Easy Ways to Get Beach Waves for Every Hair Type

Curl Spray

The appropriate curl spray can define and preserve your beach waves.

Sea Salt Spray 

Sea salt spray gives hair the gritty, lived-in feel that comes with ocean time. A matte hair pomade can simulate the feel of sea salt spray if you don't have one.

With a Curl Enhancer 

Apply a nickel-sized quantity of curl-enhancer to wavy or curly hair and scrunch to shape. Add extra product as needed based on hair length and thickness

With a Curling Iron 

Start with L'Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Weightless Blow Dry Primer, Heat Protectant.

With a Flat Iron 

Flat irons are perfect for creating beach waves with short strands above your shoulders.

With Overnight Braids 

Overnight braids may easily create beach waves. This approach is easy, fast, and low maintenance for styling damaged or bleached hair without heat.

With Overnight Buns 

Overnight buns, like space buns, provide heatless beachy waves in long hair. Like overnight braids, start with 75% dry hair so it may dry completely by morning.

With Sea Salt Spray 

A sea salt texturizing spray resembles salt water on hair, making it a popular way to obtain beach waves without the beach.
