How to get beach waves

Step 1: Sea spritz

Start with air dried hair and use a sea spray to dampen it. Be sure to dampen it in pieces so it's equally distributed.

Step 2: Make your buns

Take your hair into two sections down the middle. Then grab one section and twist into a bun. Do the same with the other section of hair. Think Princess Leia buns! Be sure to secure them with clips so you don't get a ponytail indentation.

Step 3: Dry time

If you have extra time, leave them in the buns until completely dry. If not, hit them with the blow dryer for a bit. Then let them cool.

Step 4: Let them down

Pull them down and shake them out.

Step 5: Scrunch

Scrunch them up with a little hairspray and tousle your hair a little bit. And, voila! You're ready to hit the warm weather with beach-ready locks.
