Beachy Wave Hair Goals. Stylist Nicole Fazio in Cleveland, Ohio shows us the EASIEST ways to get a perfectly imperfectly “just off the beach” no-big-deal type of curl. Real talk: beachy waves would be best achieved after being at the beach all-day-long. Wouldn’t that be the life? Ah – the struggle. Ok – but back to reality. How to get it done while you’re a mil miles away from mermaid land? The trick is all about HOW you curl the curls… HOW you pull the curls… HOW you turn the curls… and HOW to properly shake them out for a loose, lovely look.
Yes – the rumors are true. “Dirty” hair (aka not washed for a day or two) is best for holding those curls – but, if you NEED or WANT to do a blow-out prior to curling your hair … follow these guidelines:
- Tool Time: Do not skimp on hair tools. From the brush to the styling sprays to the blow-dryer – all adds up.
- Section It: Crown, Sides and the back of the head = the 4 main sections to remember. Blow out one section at a time, starting with the crown and sides.
- Back it Up: Finish it up with blowing out the back of the head.
- Finally: Cool it down and get a frizz-free fabulous look by using that “cool” button on your blow-dryer to cool the cuticles of the hair. Just a basic sealing of that cool air makes a major difference.
Got a pen and paper? Make note (when watching the video) how Nicole SECTIONS the hair (know the 2 best spots to section), the DIRECTION to make the curls (based on the location on your head), and the PULL factor.
Before you shake-shake-shake it out – use texture spray like THIS one Nicole recommends to spray all over and keep that curl today, tomorrow AND the next day (really!)
Done. Slaaaaay all day.
Hello. With these steps, my curls lasted 3 days. Added a little of THIS dry shampoo to the root each day and was out the door.
💕Happy Hair Days💕
