Beach waves: how to get the looks using the right products by Michela Marra
Hi Pretty Birds,
Have you entered the beach wave tunnel too? No problem: it’s THE summer look. To get it, however, you’ll need specific products and a bit of effort.
For example, if you have straight hair, before using a specific product, you can section off your hair and braid it, leaving it to air dry (ideally you should allow it to set for a few hours).
Got fuzzy or wavy hair? A curl defining product alone is not enough. First, apply a specific spray to hair which will fight fuzziness (using an anti-fuzz shampoo and conditioner prior to styling would be even better). You can then allow hair to air dry. The secret to this look is indeed the freedom to use a blow dryer or not. However, in some cases − especially if you love precision and maximum definition − using a flat iron might prove useful. Start from the roots, roll each tuft but not all the way so that you end up with waves and not curls.
The fastest way to get the look, though, is by using specific products which also enhance volume and focus on hair texture. We’ve selected some of the best available products for you.
To get natural-looking, uncombed beach waves, apply Bumble and Bumble – Surf Spray, a texturizing sea salt spray, to locks.
Tony & Guy – Spry Texturizzante al sale Marino creates volume and texture, creating an opaque effect.
Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray is perfect for creating ocean-inspired hairdos. It contains natural sea salt and is ideal for all hair types.
Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray gives hair the same effect you would obtain by swimming in the sea. Salt water sticks to hair, giving you the impression that hair is thicker and creating gorgeous waves. Spray product onto locks, from the middle down to the ends. Precious oils enrich this product’s formula and allow you to obtain soft, moisturized waves.
Arricciacapelli Automatico Bellissima Ricci&Curl by Imetec is the first styler equipped with Automatic Rotating Curl, a system which automatically allows you to create different wavs according to preferences, occasions and mood. The Automatic Rotating Curl delicately wraps locks, heating and shaping them in just a few seconds. All you have to do is insert hair, press a button and wait for the acoustic signal that indicates when to release hair and you’ll have the perfect curl.
Bottega Verde SOL Capelli Siero Cocco e Lime is a professional product for sublime hair in just one gesture. Locks are transformed into wonderful waves for a “beach hair” effect. Its special formula containing coconut milk and lime extract boasts an innovative “memory effect” which refreshes natural waves, exalting their shine and defining waves. Its rich texture is simultaneously light and coats hair without weighing it down.
Wavy Spray Be You by Framesi is a structuring spray allowing you to obtain a “wave” effect. Ideal for a natural looking, brushed out style, it gives hair body, volume, support, protection and a matte finish.
This sea salt spray by Davines gives hair fullness and body with a matte finish and a dishevelled look, a real “beach style.” Spray onto wet hair before styling for body or on dry hair to increase volume and that opaque effect.
Jean Louis David Beach and Shine Spray are two products that are perfect to use together. While the first one, enriched with coconut water and sea water extracts from Brazil, texturizes hair for a “just came from the beach,” look, the second product is a weightless mist that gives hair shine and softness without weighing it down. It also neutralizes odours.
No Inhibition Sea Salt Spray gives both straight and wavy hair structure and body, thanks to its sea water effect formula. It contains the unique properties of Guarana extract which provides hair with refreshing, toning benefits. Guarana extract also carries out a moisturizing and strengthening action with every application. Spray generously onto damp, clean hair then style with fingers. Air dry or blow dry.
Eleven Australia Sea Salt Texture Spray is a light spray that adds texture to create a wavy, beach effect finish. The combination of hydrolyzed grain proteins and sea salt give hair volume and texture. If you want volume, spray at roots. If, on the other hand, your goal is to obtain texture and thickness, apply to lengths. It can be applied to both wet or dry hair.
