Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving Perfect Beach Waves

Beach waves – the effortlessly chic hairstyle we all adore! Whether you have long locks, short hair, or something in between, achieving that perfect beach wave is easier than you think. Let's dive into our guide, revealing beach wave hair secrets from top hairstylists and exploring various methods, including natural techniques, to get those dreamy waves.

How to Get Beach Waves Without Heat

You don't always need heat to get those coveted beach waves! Embrace your natural curls and enhance them for a beachy look. Start by washing your hair with a shampoo specifically designed for curly or wavy hair. Products like the Four Reasons Original Curl Shampoo, rich in avocado oil and aloe vera, provide optimal moisturisation without weighing down your hair – perfect for achieving natural beach waves.

Beach Wave Hair Tutorial for Long Hair


Long hair can beautifully showcase beach waves. After washing, use a deeply moisturising conditioner or treatment, like the Four Reasons Original Curl Treatment. It's ideal for long hair, offering versatility as a conditioner, hair mask, and even as a leave-in for those with thicker textures. This step is crucial for keeping your waves bouncy and manageable throughout the day.

Using a Flat Iron for Beach Waves

Yes, you can use a flat iron to create stunning beach waves, especially for those with short hair. The key is to use a light touch and the right technique. After prepping your hair with a heat-protectant product, like the Four Reasons Original Curl Mist, twist and glide the flat iron through small sections of your hair to create soft, undulating waves.

Products for Creating Beachy Waves in Short Hair

Short hair can rock beach waves too! The trick is using lightweight products that won't weigh down your hair. After your heatless or flat iron styling, spritz on a moisturizing spray like the Four Reasons Original Curl Mist. It not only refreshes your waves but also offers heat protection, making it a versatile choice for all hair lengths.

Natural Methods for Achieving Beach Waves

Prefer to keep it natural? No problem! Work with your hair's natural texture. After using a curl-enhancing shampoo and conditioner, gently scrunch your hair while it's damp and let it air dry. This method enhances your natural curls or waves, giving you that beachy look without any heat.

Beach Waves for Different Hair Types

Every hair type can achieve beautiful beach waves. The key is to understand your hair's unique needs. For finer hair, use lighter products, and for thicker, coarser hair, opt for more intense moisturization. Remember, the right product can make all the difference.

Maintaining Beachy Waves All-Day

To keep your beach waves looking fresh all day, consider using a diffuser when drying your hair and apply a light hold spray afterwards. For those following the curly girl method, the Three-Product Four Reasons Original Curl routine is a fantastic fit and helps maintain those waves from morning to night.

By incorporating these tips and techniques, you'll master the art of creating stunning beach waves that suit your hair type and style. Embrace your natural beauty and make those waves your signature look!
