During the summer, I like to find ways to get ready that take way less effort especially when it comes to my hair. It’s so hot outside that the last thing I want to do is spend hours in the bathroom styling my hair only to be met with heat and humidity the second I step outside! That’s why I love doing simple beachy waves during the summer months.
If you’re wondering how you get beachy waves in 10 minutes, I just shared a new Beachy Waves hair tutorial to Instagram that you can watch and follow along with! In it, I’m using the best beachy waves hair products, including the beachy waves hair tool that makes it all happen.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Blow drying has to be one of the worst, most tedious activities a woman does. We all have a love/hate relationship with it—love the results, hate the journey. The Dyson Supersonic has completely changed my outlook on drying my hair. Yes, it’s a steep price but it is worth every dollar and then some! It’s a salon-quality blow out in the comfort of your own home and cuts down on blow drying time by minutes and minutes. I cannot recommend it enough.
T3 1" Curling Wand
In terms of styling your hair, the T3 wand is really the only thing you need. It lives up to the hype and then some, I can attest! For beach wave hairstyles for medium hair like mine, I rely on the T3 1” Undone Waves barrel. The base and barrel lock into each other so easily, and this wand has 5 heat settings so you can use as much or as little as necessary. I can’t achieve the cool, casual beachy hair waves the way I can with this hair tool–it’s the only way I know how to curl hair, with the T3 wand!
Chi Original 1” Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
I’m a Chi loyalist! I’ve been using this forever and have never strayed. For the best results, I like to use the Chi on the last 1-2” of my hair to give it a bit more texture and create the illusion that my hair is longer than it actually is. That can be our little secret trick!
Kérastase Shampoo & Conditioner
The shampoo and conditioner you use have serious effects on your hair. Right now, I’m using Kérastase Blond Absolu’s Cicaflash Conditioner along with Kérastase Bain Lumiere Shampoo. Not only do both products smell so good, but they work wonders in terms of cleansing, softening, and keeping my locks the color I want them! They’re both formulated with hyaluronic acid to encourage shine and moisture. I do switch up shampoo and conditioners often to keep my hair on its toes, and I always have extra Living Proof Shampoo & Conditioner in my bathroom cabinets.
Yves Durif Vented Hairbrush
I know what you’re thinking: $70 for a hairbrush?! But hear me out. In terms of hair care, this is the best $70 you will ever spend. I love this brush so much, I even have an Instagram highlight dedicated to it! Not only is the Yves Durif Vented Hairbrush heat resistant, anti-static, and light in the hand, but it’s handmade from natural rubber resin and carbon fiber in Italy. It’s a detangling tool come true, and so easy to hold and maneuver. It will truly change the blow drying game for you!
Oribe Heat Styling Spray
A high-quality heat stylant is a non-negotiable if you take heat to your hair. I love the Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray. It smells great, is lightweight, and helps my hair remain soft, smooth, and undamaged after styling!
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
Clean hair is great in terms of smelling wonderful and looking fresh, but it can be stubborn to style since it has no oil build-up to work with. That’s why I use Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray on wash days to give it that grit and volume it can’t get on its own. I love this stuff and it smells so good!
Oribe Split End Seal
Maybe the most important step in my beachy waves process is applying a bit of Oribe’s Split End seal. This serum is magic in a bottle and has been proven to reduce breakage by 65%! Bonus: the bottle itself looks gorgeous on any bathroom counter.
