I suck at making videos. Just an FYI.
I have finally, FINALLY, put together a hair tutorial for you all on how I get beachy waves in my hair. My friends have been asking me for SO LONG now, and I’m so sorry I haven’t done it sooner. I even made false promises, only to let you down! But it’s HERE, and probably not that great, but here nonetheless! I’m not quite sure why my friends think my hair looks so great because I always seem to find something wrong with it, but I’m flattered they have asked me to show them my ways. 🙂
Some info for you to know…..
The products I use on my hair are as follows:
- Pureology Hydrate Shampoo/Conditioner
- Moroccan Oil and/or Orofluido Hair Elixir
- Kenra #25 Volumizing Hair Spray
- Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron, 1″ or 1.5″ (the larger the barrel, the bigger the curl/more wavey your hair will be!)
I purchase my hair products through Ulta or my local professional beauty shop. They are pricy, but I refuse to use the cheap stuff because it doesn’t work on my hair!
*UPDATE: Some of you have asked, and I forgot to mention this in the video….I start by blow drying my hair straight prior to curling! Sometimes I let it air dry and then touch it up with a round brush for some volume. Whichever way you do it, starting with it straight is best!*
Also….I tried not to say “um” too much, but apparently forgot by the end of the video. And, I’m a total dork on camera. Please, please, PLEASE know I am in no way a professional or even semi-professional hair stylist. I have NO CLUE what I’m doing, but this is how I do it. So if you are a hair stylist and I’m doing something wrong, please do not yell at me! I am openly admitting I don’t know what I’m doing! 🙂 Also, the quality of this video isn’t so hot, and I can’t figure out why….so I apologize in advance!
Some key tips:
- curl AWAY from your face
- don’t curl all the way to the end! leave a few inches of straight hair
- loosen up the curls with your fingers.
Soooooo. That’s that. If you have questions, leave them in a comment below! I realize that I’m not very good at explaining my process, so I may have not discussed a question of yours. I will get back to you ASAP. 🙂 Hope this helps! Or at the very least, gives you a basis!
