I’ve been wearing my hair in a “messy,” beach waves lately, I’m sure you’ve noticed the trend in all the magazines. This is the hairstyle that I’m going to show you how to do at home.
(Scroll down to the bottom to watch the beach waves hair tutorial video for short, medium, or long hair lengths.)
This week, learn how to curl your hair with a straightener to create effortless, loose waves. I’ll also briefly go over, how to do the Korean, mool gyul waves hairstyle (translated in English – water waves).
- Section your hair below your ears. Sections for flat iron curls are smaller than curling iron curls.
- Apply heat protectant.
- Take a 2″ section and run a comb through it.
- Take your flat iron and wrap your hair UNDER & AROUND the barrel until the ends of your hair is sticking out from the bottom of the straightener. (look at photo #6, your hair should look like that.)
- In this position, pull the flat iron down slowly. You do not need to flip the straightener around & around as you see some people do.
- Two~3″ from the end – depending on how “messy” you want the beach waves to be – straighten the flat iron, so you don’t end up curling the ends. You can also just run the flat iron over the curled parts afterwards.
- Rinse & repeat this exact same process. Just remember, we want the crown to be less curly than the hair around the nape & back.
- Make sure you do not make all the ends straight in the same length. Some should be 1″ long, some should be 3″ long, and so on.
- Only thing different about the crown is the bang area, the hair around your face. For this, we’re going to do the Korean, mool gyu waves, because it creates subtle waves instead of a curl. (I show you how to do this in the video)

Heat Protectant – This is actually a “dry oil” finishing spray (so there isn’t an oily residue – but don’t go crazy with it, use sparingly! 🙂 ), that can be used to protect your hair from heat. It also makes your hard-to-curl hair curl better. It works very well as a heat protectant for normal to thick hair, however, people with fine hair should use something else. For Fine, normal, and even thick hair, this is another good heat protectant.
I usually use a Setting Lotion when curling my hair with a curling iron, however, flatiron curls last a long time naturally, “if” it’s a good flatiron, which StyleHouse Flat Iron was.
Since we’re using a oil based heat protectant, no oils are needed at the end. Don’t you love muti-task products?
EVA NYC Surfs Up Texture Spray for perfect beach waves. I used a new brand in this video and I’m in major love! This will work for every hair texture too. It’s a VERY light hairspray, dry-shampoo, dry wax… all in one kind of a spray. The formula is very light, it’s not sticky (my main reason for liking this bottle), gives your hair that modern, dry matte finish, gives your curls volume, and smells heavenly – like citrus musk? Lovely, stuff, this…
Nail Polish (because I *always* get asked lol) Orly GlowStick – horrible formula. I only wear it when I want to direct traffic on the streets – or want to make my video look more cheerful. 🙂
