How to Get Beach Waves for Ladies with Short Hair
What You’ll Need:
- 1-inch barrel curling iron
- Heat Protectant
- Beach Waves stylish spray
Step 1: Section and curl
Start by sectioning your hair. There’s no right or wrong way, so part your hair the way you’re comfortable with. Also, it doesn’t have to be perfect — we love messy beach waves. Leave the front section of your hair (on both sides) for curling later.
Then take one section of your hair at least halfway through the entire hair length. Make sure you section it vertically as this makes the best waves. Take your curling iron and clamp the section of your hair. Start curling your hair towards your face. Remember to curl all the way to the roots or as close to it as you can. Stop curling around an inch from the end of your hair.
Slowly loosen and tighten the clamp while moving it down your hair and then let go. Run your fingers through your curls to separate the curly hair.
Repeat the same steps for the other sections until you curl your hair completely.
Step 2: Curl the front sections
Now it’s time to curl the front sections you left untouched. The same curling process applies. Only this time, you will curl your hair away from your face.

Step 3: Spray and scrunch
Now you’ve curled your hair, you can give it a bit more of a tousled wave look. Do this by scrunching your hair or tossing it around. This will give you the messy look that beach waves have.
You can also refine your wavy hair. Take a curling wand and redo hair strands which aren’t curled enough or take small strands and curl them.
Once your beach waves are good to go, apply styling spray on it to keep them in place. After spraying, scrunch or tousle your hair to give it more texture and definition.
