how to: beach waves for short hair

photoNecklace c/o: Wrenn Jewelry

I recently posted about my adventures in chopping off all my hair for the first time in 15 years.  Not sure what came over me, because then I went and had my bestie Brittney cut off several more inches. Brittney gives a MEAN haircut and she’s also incredible at styling the best beach waves.  I went in with a photo of Kendi for inspiration and I left Brittney’s chair completely thrilled with my new wavy do.  BUT…there was something about my new short hair that I didn’t anticipate.  I had imagines wearing it in loose, casual, wavy curls everyday this summer.  But when I went to curl it with my curling iron a few days later I was stuck with a poofy, wonky, golden girls-ish disaster.  And then, and hour later my hair was back to being stick straight. Ugh. It turned out that curling short hair wasn’t as easy as I had expected.  When I posted the above pic on instagram many of you seemed to be having the exact same trouble curling your short hair. So I called Brittney and I begged her to teach us her ways so that I could be happy with my new style.  Brittney taught me that the secret to beach waves for short hair is a HAIR STRAIGHTENER, not a curling iron!  I’ve since practiced and almost perfected this technique for myself.  And today Brittney is here to teach us how its done. Yay Brittney, we love you!

Below you will see how Brittney styled this look on my friend Lacey and on me.  Brittney has also put together a video for us that walks through the details.  I suggest watching the video and then taking a look at the photos and reading the tips and product recommendations below  to tie everything together. Remember, the key technique with this look is that you are BENDING the straightener around the hair rather than curling it–this will make mores sense after you watch the video.  NOTE: we are NOT video production specialists by ANY means, as you are about to see. you have been warned.
ALSO: Because we are NOT video production specialists, watch this super helpful video to see how this girl achieves the beach wave look.  It’s a good one to watch because you can see how she styles the look on herself rather than someone else doing it.  Also, she divides her hair into sections before curling whereas Brittney takes a more organic approach–so do whatever is easiest for you.


best beachy hair products
Aquage Sea Salt or Wella Ocean Spritz. Brittney gives 3 ways to use the product.  1. using a sea salt spray at your roots when your hair is damp will give your root a little lift and texture when it dries. 2.  it is also great using sea salt spray if you have natural curl or wave–wash your hair at night, spray generously with sea salt spray and sleep on a towel (if your hair is really long or thick you may want to twist or braid it before you sleep on it. Then in the morning you can use this method to curl any pieces that didn’t dry right. 3. After you’ve curled your hair, if it looks too “styled” you can use this on the dry hair to grit it up.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. A fantastic product to use to make your hair feel thicker and fuller and to keep it from sticking to your head.  If your hair is thick this will give it some lift to help from feeling bottom heavy.  It can be used to substitute dry shampoo. It smells fantastic and it really transforms the hair!

Paul Mitchell makes a fantastic dry shampoo at a respectable price point.  I’ve found dry shampoo that is less expensive, but often the smell is too strong for me and I don’t feel like you get much powder spray. I’ve also used more expensive, like Bumble and Bumble which is my favorite–but its almost double the cost.  This is good middle ground. It’s especially great to use dry shampoo for this style if your hair gets a little oily, especially around your hair line.

Sebastian Shaper is a fantastic, workable hair spray.  It doesn’t get sticky and helps give hold.

Texture by Bumble and Bumble or Brilliantine by Bumble and Bumble. Both of these are great if you hair has fly aways that need taming.  Just put a small amount in your hand and rub into your hands well before touching your hair. When you apply to your hair touch it lightly at first and gradually work it in.  It is wonderful because the finish is not greasy at all.

Healthy Sexy Hair has a leave in soy conditioner. The down side is the bottle often breaks.  The upside is Brittney keeps buying it anyway because it is THAT good.  You can transfer it to another generic pump bottle.  This puts moisture and topical vitamins into your hair.  Use it when damp for detangling. It’s also great to use to soften any pieces that might have too much sea salt spray or to revamp and rework second or third day hair.

curl in sections
TIPS: Start with dry hair–preferably hair that has some styling products in it.  Use some dry shampoo before you begin if you didn’t wash that day and your hair is a little oily. Spray hair with a workable hair spray.  Then take one inch to one and a half inch sections starting in the front of your face on either side.  Clamp a 1 inch flat iron on medium to medium/high heat near the scalp and twist the flat iron 180 degrees. NOT 360. You should be twisting/turning the flat iron toward the back of your head (and away from your face). Then pull straight down at the tips.  Re-clamp and twist at the base again if more lift is needed at the root. Work your way toward the back/center of the head. Follow these same steps starting at the front of the opposite side and work your way back to the center.  Spray with hairspray and allow to cool.  Shake curls out and separate them and follow up with finishing product. 
curl away from face straightener

Here are Brittneys recommendations for a good flat iron:
1. either titanium plate or ceramic plate. Not metal. Make sure it isn’t just plated because eventually it will rub off and you will be left with metal spots. Metal swells and shrinks with heat and over time this causes tiny cracks to form in the plate. Your hairs can get caught in these tiny cracks and it will pull and damage your hair. Also, metal heats un evenly so there will be hot spots.
2. make sure it has a heat guage. Preferable with degrees (ie 200-450) but numbers (ie 1-25) will work too. If it just has Hi, Low and off it is usually too hot on the high setting, and too low on the low, so you’ll use the high setting and it will be damaging. about 300 degrees would be good for fine to medium hair and about 350 would be good for medium to coarse.
3. look to find a beveled edge. so the edge of the plate should not be square it should be slightly round. This helps with curling.

Here are a few she has used: she likes the long cords that you will get when buying professional grade flat irons.

    Thank you for posting this!! Shortly after I saw your new hair cut I sent an email to my stylist asking her if she could cut my hair like yours at my next appointment. I then got frustrated because I ended up with hair that was too big when I curled it. So, now I’ve been growing it back out. I guess I need to get a small flat iron. 🙂

      Take you stylist a picture of Ashley’s hair and that will help. If your hair is the same texture as Ashleys then these are my recommendations.
      Overall length should be just above your shoulders so that it does not drag on shoulders when its dry, but rather swings when you move your head.
      The back is cut slightly shorter than the front but it is not “stacked” or cut like an A-line bob. The layers are long and are slighly longer toward the front of the face.

      If your hair is thicker or more coarse then you may need some razor, or point cutting, or texturizing to acheive this look.

    I love your hair color and would love to have mine colored this way. BUT I cannot get my stylist to do this. I have grays to color so she colors my roots first then highlights over top of them (at the same time). It turns out more yellow than blonde and always darker than I want. Do you have grays that your stylist colors? Can you briefly describe the process in which she colors your hair? Thank you so much!

It is much cheaper than going to a hairstylist and they really do take the time to look at pics of your hair and you answer so many questions, it’s hard to get it wrong. I started doing my own coloring at home with eSalon products and I have been thrilled with the results! https://www.esalon.com/

    Hi, first off your hair is so cute! I recently had my hair cut similar to this but have been having difficulty curling it with a flat iron. I have a Solia Tourmaline Ceramic in a 1″ (like this- http://www.folica.com/tools/flat-irons/solia-tourmaline-ceramic-ion-flat-iron-one-and-one-quarter-inch-plus-free-heat-proof-pouch) but my hair will just not curl with it or it will curl and fall completely flat by the time I am done. I have zero problems when I use a curling wand, but I really want the look the flat iron gives. Do you have any suggestions? I do spray each strand before curling but still it’s like a limp noodle 🙁

    All that works for me with this haircut is stick straight hair, or the ends start to stand out which looks really weird 🙁
    Frustrating thing is, I can’t seem to curl my hair. Even with this tutorial. I really want to curl my hair, since I turn 21 monday.

    I’ll just keep trying and practicing this weekend and/or ask help from my sisters

    Thanks for the tutorial. I chopped all of my hair off last year & Now I’m finally growing it back. Excited that I can style some waves in it again without it looking too poofy. Are you curling the whole head of hair or just the top ? I can’t really tell but in the last pictures it just looks like the top layers and the hair underneath is wavy because of the salt spray? My hair is super thick so I’m not sure if I should curl throughout.

    i have this hair cut more like the blonde. And I have really thick hair so when I try to curl it like this it gets really fluffy and ends up looking like just a big ball of hair. Any advice on getting the beach curls with thick hair? The back is the main problem I have

    Thank you for a detailed tutorial! My hair just reaches my shoulders and I am so bored with having it straight all the time, I can’t wait to put some “waves” in it! I will look for the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, as I also want to give it some volume.

    Thanks for posting the information and video. I ordered the flat iron and the Oribe spray so I can try this myself. My hair is fine so I’ve always been concerned about using a flat iron, I don’t want to crush any volume I might have. I’ve tried wrapping my hair around a round curling iron but it doesn’t have the same effect, but I have never used the spray. I know my fine hair won’t look like either of the two shown here, but I’m hopeful I can get close. If your stylist has any additional tips to maintain volume for fine hair, I’d love to hear it!

    Hello Ashley,
    Thank you for the lovely piece on how to create beach waves! You have beautiful hair and the haircut suits you a lot. I just got the LOB myself and I LOBE IT!!!! I have been staying away from flat irons as I don’t like to use too much heat on my hair! I swear by “air drying’. But let’s face! When you have the LOB or the BOB, you cannot NOT “make waves”!!! I am about to buy my first flat iron and I am skewed towards the GHD or T3. Can you recommend which is better and why? Also which model of GHD do you recommend? THANK YOU!
    (FYI – My hair thickness is normal. Neither too thin, not too thick or coarse.)
