How to create Beach Waves

Create a ‘fresh from the beach look’, as seen on Kirsten Dunst, this summer.

A summer day spent swiming in the ocean and sitting on a sandy beach naturally creates a loose, wavy hairstyle. Its ease appeals to those looking for a quick, everyday style as well as those desiring a look that lasts from the office to a date with little upkeep. Unfortunately, not everyone can head to the beach to get this tousled look.

  • After shampooing, use a wide tooth comb to gently detangle your hair. Pre-dry your hair until it is almost dry.
  • Apply a Salt Spray, such as Beach Waves spray from Tecni.ART, on to the lengths and ends of the hair gently pushing the waves in as you spray. Separate your hair into 3 to 5 large sections and twist into large bun shapes and secure with a clip or band.
  • Cover the hair using a loose hairnet (to help prevent fly-aways). Dry the hair.
  • Once the hair is completely dry remove the net and clips, and use your fingers to detangle the buns. Apply more  spray if you want to enhance the effect.
