{How To} No-Heat Beach Waves

Nothing says summer like beachy waves! My beauty routine becomes lower maintenance in the summer, favoring a BB cream vs. full-on foundation, and opting for natural color instead of bronzer. I also like to create my go-to hair style with less work too by ditching the curling iron and creating beach waves without the damaging heat from styling tools! Just follow these 4 simple steps below for mermaid hair!

After showering, put wet hair up in a towel to absorb the excess water. Remove towel about 10-15 minutes later when hair is still slightly damp.

Spritz bottom half of hair with Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray and scrunch with hands to give it some texture. 

Split hair into two sections on the left & right. Twist hair into low Princess Leia-like buns, and secure with bobby pins instead of a hair ties to avoid a harsh crease.

When hair is dry, remove the bobby pins and shake out hair for effortless beachy waves. If your hair doesn't hold a curl well (like my stick-straight hair) apply a medium hold hairspray - I love this one!
