Bouncy Beach Babe

Who doesn't love those effortlessly sexy beachy waves? To achieve this look, spritz some texturizing spray on damp hair, and give it a quick blow-dry. Now, here comes the fun part. Take small sections of hair and wrap them around the flat iron, starting from the mid-lengths, but leave the ends out for that natural beachy vibe. Mix it up by alternating the direction in which you wrap the hair around the iron. Once you're done, just gently tousle those waves with your fingers, and boom! You're a beach babe ready to take on the world.
