If you are looking to reduce hot tool usage to a minimum, you are in luck. Artificial beach waves can be achieved with a simple overnight styling routine. First, Marjan recommends spraying your hair with a curly leave-in styling product. Then create several loose braids in the hair. If it’s too tight, the look may appear more forced than effortless, so keep the braid long and loose. In the morning, I pull out the braids, and voila! Styling overnight, without heat.
For Marjan clients who have shorter hair but crave a long, beachy look, she recommends using the help of extensions. “I recommended Large lengths before bonding or tape extensions. It blends seamlessly with natural hair and lasts months! They also have the prettiest soft, wavy texture that’s perfect for beach waves.”
