Beach waves, 5 ways

July 22, 2020

If there’s one hair style that’s the epitome of cool-girl summer and looks good on everyone, it’s beach waves.

The timeless look remains stylish year in and year out, and with WFH becoming the new norm, who wants to waste time on an elaborate, multi-step styling process? Beach waves are your go-to for effortless styling without the heat damage. And when you can style your beachy locks in a heap of cool ways, it’s easy to keep the look fresh.

So, how do you get beachy locks in minutes?

If you have straight, kinky or wavy hair, a texturising wave spray, like Urban Waves will work wonders. For best results, scrunch it into damp hair and let your hair dry naturally. It’s that easy. And you can also use it on dry hair for extra va-va-voom while you’re out and about.

The best thing about Urban Waves? Its milky formula will style your hair while also conditioning it with the help of proteins, natural oils and tropical Aussie fruits.

5 ways to style your beachy hair

Embrace laidback locks

Once your hair is looking nice and wavy, find your part, back comb at the roots and embrace you big, wavy locks. Remember, the whole idea of this summertime style is to look like you’ve not tried too hard, so don’t be scared if it looks a little messy.

Flooding an Instagram feed near you, baby braids are a big trend of Summer 2020. Simply take a few strands from around your hair line and braid them together in a loose to medium hold. Use them to frame your face, but opt for a messy as opposed to polished braid to match your effortless beachy look.

Yep, bandanas are back and they always look their best with messy, wavy hair. Simply tie your scarf underneath your hairline at the back, either with your hair up or down, whichever you prefer. They’re the perfect accessory to add some edge to your laidback look.

Want to take cool-girl waves up a notch? Whack your wavy hair up into a high pony tail and scrunch in some Urban Waves for additional volume and definition. Again, mess is best, so either pull your hair back loosely or loosen it up a bit once it’s up. Keep it casual.

Headbands and clips

Used to your hair being a little more polished? We get that. Try using clips and headbands to neaten up the style a little and ease your way into the no-fuss look.
