The Tuesday Tip: Get Beach Waves Without Tongs Or Straighteners


If there is one staple hairstyle this summer, it is beach waves. Girls with naturally curly hair master this gorgeous look easily and quickly. However us girls with poker straight, fine hair, struggle achieving beach waves without the use of tongs or straighteners, which - when used regularly - can cause damage to our hair. Luckily, stylist Peter Lux has shared a quick tip on how to create beautiful beach waves, without using them...

First apply a small amount of salt spray to towel-dried hair to create a tousled texture. Whilst blow drying, twist chunky sections of hair in a backwards motion to encourage the hair to create natural waves. Once dry, loosen the twists with your fingers and finish with an extra spritz of salt spray.

As for what salt spray to use, Peter recommends the Schwarzkopf got2b Beach Matt Texturizing Salt Spray 200ml (£4.19 Boots / $4.22 Walmart), as it provides great texture and lift, without weighing the hair down or making it stiff.
