First of all, I do not understand why having wavy hair is now called ‘beach hair.’ Do all women at the beach have wavy hair? Is this a new requirement? Do you have to turn around and go home if you do not have wavy hair?
Second of all, this came about because of Pinterest. I kept seeing this one tutorial in particular on how to get beachy hair, and it made no sense to me. And the big ‘after’ photo was puzzling – to me, it looked more like bedhead.
So, in the name of Science, I give to you the lazy chick’s guide to beach hair.
You shall need:
– Wet hair. Not soaking wet, but nice and damp.
– Mousse or other styling product is probably unnecessary, but if you love you some product, go ahead.
– 4 hair ties. Easy peasy.
Because you’re going to look like a whang-doodle with all those braids, wrapping your hair in a scarf is a good idea. Plus, the scarf helps to keep the ties in place.
And now go to sleep. Leave the hair in braids for at least 8 hours.
The next morning, undo the braids. Finger comb your hair. If you have any frizzies, apply a smoothing serum.
And there you have it. Beach hair.
