How to Get the Perfect Mermaid Beach Waves
Method #1, Salt Spray: Most people, especially redheads, have some sort of natural wave to their hair and a good salt spray is great for really bringing this out- just like the ocean! Salt sprays should do the job for pretty much any hair type and helps get rid of frizz.
How to: Simply spray (less is more) onto wet or damp hair, and then cup some ends in your hand and scrunch up to the root.
Method #2, Three Barrel Curling Iron: This method is great for loose waves, you’ll want a waver with larger barrels; small barrels will get you tighter waves.
How to: All you do is separate your dry hair into sections, spraying your heat protectant as you go, and clamp down and hold for a few seconds, move down that section of hair, and repeat. Finish with a holding spray.
Method #3, Hair Buns: Simply wash your hair, section it into equal parts, and twist and wrap damp hair into two to four low buns. You can spray a little hair spray for extra hold and definition.
This is best to do at night after you get out of the shower, since your hair should be dry by the time you wake up in the morning.
Method #4, A Mix: Depending on your hair type, a mix of methods 1-3 could work best for you. For instance, spray salt spray then, put your hair into buns. Or, with dry hair, use a curling iron and put your hair into buns that night before bed. Do what works for your hair type and you’ll be golden!
Rock it like a Redhead!
