Get the ultimate effortless look with chic beachy redhead hair waves this summer! Bring your red hair to life with this simple style that translates well from a day at the beach to a night on the town and every occasion in between. All products recommended were featured in recent summer H2BAR Boxes! Here are 3 different ways to get the beach wave look this summer:

1. Heatless beach waves

If you want an easy-breezy summer style, skip the heat! Not only is heatless better for your hair, but you’ll also wake up ready to walk out the door. 

Start with damp hair and add any styling products of your choice. We love Paul Mitchell’s Neuro Reshape HeatCTRL Memory Styler. Comb through hair to get out any tangles and separate into two to six sections. If you have ultra-thick red hair or want tighter waves, opt for more sections. If you have thin red hair or want loose waves, stick with two. 

Wrap your hair into a low bun with the tutorial below:

2. Sleek & Polished Beach Waves

If you’re looking for a more polished version of the laid-back beach wave, try using hot tools to style your locks. 

Spray in your favorite beach spray like Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Wave Refresher Spray featured in the July H2BAR Box! Section your red hair. Use anywhere from a 1/2” – 1 1/2” barrel curling iron or wand depending on your hair length and comfort. If you’re a beginner, use a wand instead of a curly iron. Wrap your hair around the barrel or wand and hold for a few seconds. Alternate directions for a more natural look. Comb out your hair and spritz with Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Wave Refresher Spray for sleek beachy waves that will stay all day.

3. Almost au Naturel Beach Waves

If you want to skip the heat and get natural-looking beachy waves but aren’t near the beach, try faking it!

Take damp red hair and apply a salt spray. In the below tutorial, we use Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Wave too. Get those perfectly natural-looking beachy waves and to up your look, wrap it in this fun braided ponytail. 

Rock it like a Redhead!
