How To: Relaxed Beach Waves

Ever feel like you want to add a little oomph to your hair before walking out the house without having to spend a lot of time on it? Cloud Nine‘s Creative Director, Lauren McCowen shares how you can create relaxed beachy waves in a matter of minutes.

1. Dampen hair down with leave-in conditioner and heat protector to prep hair for styling. Then, dry product in with the hairdryer on cold air using a hair brush.

2. Take horizontal sections of the hair, starting at the nape. Set a loose wave by wrapping small sections of hair around a curling wand in different directions slowly moving through the hair.

3. Continue this technique across all sections of the hair. Tuck section over ears
while warm to cool closer to the head shape.

4. Once hair is set, liberally spray with dry shampoo and styling spray and brush through with the hair brush for effortless volume and a textured finish. Grab the ends of the hair and spray a finishing hair mist next to the ends and shake ends through the product for light separation and definition.
