Beach waves have been a style dominating the past few years. It is a style that features textured waves and is styled to look like you just got home from a day on the beach & lounging in the sun. It is a look that is found on blow-dry bar menus, red carpets, and is even a style that brides opt for on their wedding day. It is a look that is sexy, glamorous, and easy to achieve all in one perfect style.

But the best part about the beach wave hair trend? It is flattering on almost everyone. Beach waves enhance the volume of the hair and as the waves are angled way from the face, allowing for your features to be accentuated. And because of how amazing and flattering it is I want to teach you to how to achieve this look!

Brush half of your hair into a ponytail and twist it into a bun then repeat with the bottom half or left over hair. When you wake up your hair should be in a nice loose wave from the bun shape that you slept in and then if you want, you can touch it up with a curling iron.

However when it comes to using heat, the most important trick to beach waves however is to leave the ends away from the curling iron. In order to get that lived in bend and beachy look you want to focus on the middle section of the hair.

After you’ve curled your entire head and let the curls cool a bit use a flexible hairspray that allows your hair to move and spray it onto a brush before combing the curls out to ensure a smooth finish. And for the final touch, if you don’t have cream for the ends of your hair, use lotion to tame your frizz. 

This look is one that is becoming extremely popular in the bridal industry now more than ever, especially when you pair it with a flower crown, making the perfect bohemian look. With summer right around the corner the loose waves provide a style that is perfect for any summer bride. But it is also important to know that in the summer you are battling the heat and humidity as well! So you might want to opt for loose beach waves when it comes to your bridal shower or rehearsal dinner versus your wedding day.
