Try a Loose Braid While Wet

Don’t pull fragile wet hair into a tight ponytail or bun or you’ll risk ending up with large, awkward curls. Just go through it with a wide-toothed comb and loosely braid it. When dry, shake it out and—voilà—beach waves.

Dust Off Your Curling Iron

This trick just might save your life…if your life depends on beach waves. Tie your hair in a high pony and then curl small sections using a large curling iron. You’ll look like Shirley Temple—until you undo your pony and shake out those curls. Perfect beach waves. You can watch our tutorial here.
