How to create Beachy waves in 5 minutes

I have been watching my hairdresser create waves in my hair for years. I have tried many, many times to recreate them but always managed to create a half straight, half squarish bumps do.

About a month ago I decide it was time and I really went for it. I managed to burn myself quite a few times but by the third go I got it. Now, I’m not sure why it took me so long.

How to create Beachy waves in 5 minutes

When my hair is dry, it only takes about 5 minutes but I do have very fine hair. I use a ghd to create these waves. The new ghd V Sunset Styler is perfect and the colours are gorgeous:). Here is a little video showing how I create my beachy waves. You might notice I’m talking A LOT and it’s muted. I had to mute it because I’m telling filthy jokes the entire time and I wanted this to be suitable for work (not true, but it makes me sound way more interesting)

Until I watched it, I was baffled by using my flat iron to curl my hair, but the way you explained it just made something in my brain click. I tried it the same night (probably about a month ago now), and it looked awesome! And I’ve been using my flat iron to curl my hair ever since! So, a super huge thanks and a big ol’ virtual hug for teaching my how to finally master this! If I could kiss you I would!!

    • Wow, that is so cool to hear and I’m so glad you came back to tell me. I was the same, I didn’t get it and then one day I did. It’s so easy to do my hair now.

  11. This is excellent! Will try today. I find my (also very fine) hair is terrrrrrible at holding a curl. Any hot tips for curl holding?

    • My hair is similar. Let the curl cool down before touching or styling. This really helps keep it for longer. I then use a little hairspray or sea salt and scrunch. Only a little because too much will weigh my hair down.

  12. Thanks for sharing!! – I’ve tried to get waves using a straightening iron but i seem to work better with my curling iron. Gotta try it out with my GHD while watching your video! 😀
