Excited to share my next video tutorial with you all on this Friday! This was my most-requested video to date… you all wanted to know how I get my beachy waves! Although sometimes I switch up my curls, this is my go-to style and has been for a while since I got my long hair back!
- Starting with air-dried hair (usually from the night before), I always blow out my front section of hair to get rid of any cowlicks from sleeping (or if my hair dried funky).
- Using one of these alligator clips (highly recommend them), I section off my hair in 3 sections typically — bottom, middle, and then the front pieces.
- Holding the wand in my right hand, I’ll take a 1-2 inch section of hair and wrap it around the barrel — away from my face, while still leaving a bit of room at the roots. After holding it on for a second or two, I’ll hold the end piece and slide the wand up and down my hair. I love using the t3 wand for this method — the wand is very smooth and allows the hair to move freely on it (without tugging). Sliding the wand up and down the section of hair allows the root and end to be slightly waved, while the middle section gets more of a defined wave. *GLAM tip: After completing the left side of hair with your right hand, make sure to switch hands and use your left hand to do the right side of your hair. It helps keep your curls symmetrical and all curls will be facing away from your face!
- I’ll let down the next section of hair (the middle) and repeat step 3.
- When curling the front sections of hair, I do these slightly different, since they are significantly shorter than the other sections and I don’t like them too tight. I wrap the hair around the wand and immediately slide it down and off the hair, using my fingers to place the curls where I want before they cool and set.
- I typically don’t use too much product on my hair (since I like my curls to try to last 3-4 days), so I’ll only spray a bit of Oribe Texturizing Spray on the bottom pieces to break up the curls and give them a bit of grit.
I’m going to be doing another post/video on how I get my waves to last multiple days (without the need for too much touchup) — so look for that soon! In the meantime, make sure to top by the new VIDEO section in the navigation where you can see all of my beauty videos #GLAMin60seconds!
