Heat-Free Tousled Waves

August 19, 2014

Beach-waves are one of the most iconic hairstyles since they suit every hair colour, length and texture. Although this look is often fairly simple to achieve, styling products could potentially damage your hair if used regularly, and without proper heat-protection. We have created a fast and easy way to recreate these classic tousled waves – without using heat.


1. Start with damp hair – either straight from the shower, or just spritz your ends with some natural water. Then split your hair into two, and tie one side into a high ponytail (just above the ear).

2. Fold the hair 3-5 times (works better on longer hair), then secure into place at the top. Try to fold them in equal amounts – this will determine how big the curls are. Repeat the same step with the other side.

3. Let your hair air-dry, or even sleep on it overnight. Then simply remove the hair ties to reveal luscious curls. Easy!
