How to get those summer beach waves

How do celebs get those flawless, touchable beach waves? Wavy hair is a pretty seasonal look here in the low-country and is very adored by A-list celebs. There's just something so priceless and fun looking when you rock this style.

Since it's not exactly beach weather here (yet), we figured we'd let you know the way we get this look without having to hit up Folly. 

This style is a pretty simple one to achieve. 

Get A Sea-Salt Spray

Want beach waves but can’t go to the beach every day? Bring the beach with you! Try using a sea-salt spray that has a touch of oil or other natural soothing ingredients in it. Spritz it through your damp hair and let it air dry. Yeah, it's that simple. We have Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, which is best for people whose hair tends to get a little greasy through the day. It will help soak up some of that oil. Then we have Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion. If your hair gets a little dry this would be the one you'd want. We also have a Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam spray, which can be used wet or dry and works for just about any hair type. 

Use Your Curling Iron for More Waves

Sea-salt spray can add gorgeous waves to your hair, but sometimes it’s just not enough. You'll really understand this is you have very fine or straight hair. To add extra volume and some more waves, try using a large curling iron (we recommend a two-inch barrel). Make sure to twirl your hair away from your face in the front, and then altering curls as you go back.  Let your hair rest and cool off something then run your fingers through it to give it that lived in look or use a very wide tooth-comb.
