How to get Beach Waves with one simple tip | Hair Tutorial

Hello my lovelies! Todays tutorial is all about messy beach waves, a look i'm completely obsessed with at the moment. I've been trying to perfect this look for about 100 years and couldn't get it looking messy and natural enough. Then I came across a video from a Victoria Secrets shoot and in the background they were using this technique and let me tell you it's changed my world! Keep reading to see how to do this, it's so easy.

Yes, you guessed it, you've got to shake it off! Shake it off! (soz got too into Taylor Swift tunes then).
First section your hair into two, to make everything a little easier for yourself.

One). I wrap my hair around a 1" Barrel curler, I use one by Aria Beauty, curling the hair away from your face and holding in place for around 30 seconds. Now here's the trick, unwrap the curl from the bottom, once it's released SHAKE IT.

Two). Continue with this tip, wrapping the hair away from your face, curl, release and shake.

Three). Now do the same on the other side, shake shake shake.

Four). I undid the two sections and clipped up the top section again. Wrapped the hair around the curler away from the face again and release!

Five). Now for the top section curl different strands of hair different ways, do some towards the face and some away from the face. This helps give it a more natural beach look.

six). Once you've curled all your hair, rub it in between your hands to texturise it, shake it around a bit more, (you can spray it with hair spray to if you want). And then you're ready to pretend you've been to Bora Bora rather than just to Tesco.
