An Easy, Heat-Free Beach Waves Tutorial

I keep my hair and makeup routine pretty simple, too. My favorite everyday look is always a bronze glow, a coral lip, and natural air-dried beach waves. Since I color treat my hair, I make it a priority to give the heat tools a break during the summer. The sun can be drying which leads to breakage so hair rest and relaxation is helpful. As easy as these waves are, it does take the right products. The trick is to use both moisture and dryness to your advantage. Since we still have some more summer to enjoy, it’s the perfect time to show you a tutorial on my YouTube channel!

I can throw on a breezy sundress or bikini, my favorite pair of sunnies, and a great hat. Voila! With barely any effort whatsoever, you have an instant look.
