Beachy Waves

A Beautiful Mess is a great blog not only for beauty, but for decor and recipes too! Today, I'd like to feature their hair tutorial for beachy waves. It's a great, quick style that can be worn for almost any occasion. All you need is a flat iron and minimal hair products. They include great pictures with written instructions to help you accomplish this easy look.



1. Part your hair into three sections. If you have thicker hair or lots of layers, part it into four or five sections.

2. Begin curling each section at a time. To do so, start at the highest point you want curled (I started about five inches from the bottom) clasp it to your hair and curl your hand outwards as if you're turning a door knob. Once you've turned your hand as far as possible, release.

3. Then, return the straightener at the end of where you just released and repeat the process.

4. Curl each section into one large curl so that you end up having 3-5 curls all together.

5. Next, gently run your fingers through your hair, separating the curls.
