3 easy secrets to beachy texture

There’s nothing quite like looking like you’ve walked off the beach. And whether it’s sun-kissed skin or effortless tousled texture, it can be recreated at home – if you can’t get to the beach, you might as well let the beach come to you. With summer on its way, it couldn’t be a better time to brush up on your beach hair techniques – here are some of our favourite ways to achieve it, no salt needed.

1. Air dry and scrunch

One of the easiest ways to achieve beachy texture is with the help of our award-winning Air Dry Spray. We created it to help you achieve the perfect holiday hair at home, and it does the job exceptionally well. No salt or stickiness, it essentially forms a weightless veil over the hair, locking in moisture while adding definition and texture – all you need to do is spray, twist and scrunch into the hair. Simple.

‌2. Plait

Another easy way to create beachy texture is to plait hair when it’s damp, then sleep on it. You’ll wake up with tousled texture. The tighter the braid, the tighter the curl, so be sure to amend your technique based on the look you’re going for. Oh, and another top tip from us? Apply Almost Everything Cream to mid-lengths and ends to ward off frizz and boost shine.

‌3. Use our Wavemaker

One of our favourite ways to achieve all sorts of different beach waves, from tighter curls to looser bends, is with the help of our Wavemaker. It does all the hard work for you – all you have to do is feed a section of hair into the automated curl barrel, and it will create a wave in seconds. Once you’ve done all of your hair, the trick is to run your fingers through ends to create a more lived-in look, and make sure you alternate directions for beach hair that looks natural rather than done.
