11 Unique Ways to Create Beachy Waves

It’s starting to feel a little bit more like summer is on its way here in the Midwest. I hope it’s warming up in your area too. When I think of warm weather, I think of easy, breezy wavy hair. Unfortunately for me, my hair is super straight.

I love the look of loose, beachy waves and in researching this article, I have found there are lots of ways to create them. Here are some unique tutorials to add a little texture to your spring and summer hairstyles. Some require heat tools, others time and each creates a slight variation on the wavy texture theme:
