Beachy Waves

Summer is a great time to experiment with wavy hair. For messy but cute beachy waves, try towel drying your hair until it’s just slightly damp. Then, combine a mixture of epsom salt, hot water, sea salt, aloe vera, and a small amount of quality leave-in conditioner into a spray bottle. Liberally spray the mixture throughout your hair and then use your hands and fingers to scrunch your hair one section at a time. Another way of getting beautiful beach waves? Use a triple-barrel waver, such as Ion’s Titanium Pro Triple Barrel Waver, to create fresh, smooth waves that last.

Overnight Waves

Remember sleeping in braids as a little girl and waking up to crimped, wavy hair? Try it grown-up style today. Larger braids create larger waves; French braids create tighter, all-over waves. Make sure to braid your hair when it is damp, not soaking wet, and for best results, use a styling gel or cream before you begin braiding.

Leave Those Braids In!

The really convenient thing about braiding long hair is that many braid styles work for both day and night looks. Both a casual look and a more formal, date night look can be achieved with a pretty, fish-tailed side braid, for instance.
