First I gather all of my hair into a seriously high ponytail. Think Beyonce and a bit of the 90's mixed together, but accentuated even more. I basically bring the bundle as close to my forehead as possible. Trust me...baby hairs go haywire and it's not the prettiest updo, but it's a key step to creating these super quick beachy waves.
Next I separate my hair into four sections and wrap each one around a curling wand. I hold each piece for a good 10 seconds before letting them fall away from the hot tool.
I have pretty fine hair so this works well for me. Someone with thicker hair may find it easier to create 8-10 sections.
Finally, I remove the hair elastic and give my head a good shake. I'll run my fingers through everything to make sure there are no kinks and the sections blend together.
Have you tried this trick before? How did it work for you?
