How to get beach sexy hair, even if landlocked!

Now you can create beachy hair in your own bathroom. I have created this look by using two different sized curling irons and two different curls.

Wash your hair and let it air dry. When hair is 80 percent dry, spray sea salt water into your hair and scrunch it, giving hair a "beachy" feel.

Take a 1-inch section of your hair and, with your large curling iron, start by the root and clamp your hair in the curling iron, hold 5 seconds. Working down your hair turn your curling iron over and clamp the next section with your curling iron upside down, keep alternating the clamps until you reach the end.

Take the next section of hair and a smaller curling iron, preferably a curling wand, and wrap the hair, starting at the root, away from your face. For a tutorial on that see here

Enjoy for a couple of days! The best part about this hairstyle is that is a carefree style, so the messier the curls the better. You will still look like a beach babe days after doing your hair.
