To get that sexy beach waves look, first you need to apply volumizing mousse to slightly damp hair. Now braid your hair into multiple braids, making sure that the braids are not too tight. Once you are done braiding your hair, blow dry your hair with a blow dryer.
Now, open your braids and run your fingers lightly through your hair to get beachy waves. Finally, spritz your hair with hairspray to set the style. This is a very easy and versatile look and does not require too much time to create.
A messy updo is not only fashionable, but it is also a very practical hairstyle for the summers. To create this hairstyle, first apply a bit of texturizing cream through your hair. Next, backcomb hair at the front and crown area with a rattail comb to give hair more volume.
Now gather all your hair into a ponytail at the back of your head. Secure the ponytail with an elastic band. Next, curl two-inch sections of hair in the ponytail with a large-barrelled curling iron. Pin these curled hair sections at the base of the ponytail to create a wavy and messy updo. Spritz with strong-hold hairspray so that the hairstyle stays in place.
