I’m all about the beach waves when it comes to my hair. Since I have a lot of thin hair, wearing my hair straight, especially since I’m rocking the ombre hair color look, my hair has a tendency to look a little flat. By adding loose, beach waves to my hair, I can add a ton of volume in just a few minutes.
The nice thing about beachy waves is that they only take a few minutes to create. The tousled look makes your hair look effortless, fun, and full of volume.
Just remember, when taking a flat iron or a curling iron to your hair to achieve the beachy wave look, be sure to pull the curled section down after it leaves the hot iron. That way, you can stretch out the curl and avoid the Curly Sue look.
Today, I’m sharing a few great tutorials to help you get the beachy look just in time for the warmer months.
How To Get Beach Waves Hair
Beach Waves with a Curling Iron
After I got my hair trimmed a few weeks ago, I decided to pick up a 1 1/4 barrel curling iron to see if I should ditch the flat iron and replace it with a curling iron. I noticed that the curling iron waves were a bit softer and more loose. They weren’t as tight as the waves that the flat iron created.

Beach Waves with a Flat Iron
For years, I used to use a flat iron to get beachy waves. I noticed that the flat iron, especially on short and medium hairstyles, made the waves stay in the hair longer throughout the day.
