So I know a ton of women think it’s odd to have tutorials on how to get “beachy waves” BUT those women think it’s odd because they were blessed with naturally beachy beautiful hair. Some women (including myself) don’t have that advantage. So I’m here to give you a couple tips on how to get that beachy hair we all want this summer. We are going to skip over the whole “use a curling iron this way to get those beachy waves” because, if you’re as lazy as I am when it comes to your hair, you don’t want to waste time curling it. (But if you do, here are a couple tutorials. Here and here.)

I like to let my hair air dry but I don’t have super thick hair (if you do I’m jealous). I do blow dry the top of my hair, just to get some volume up there. Then I use Alterna Summer Hair-Ocean Waves Texturizing Spray. Suuuper long name but it’s amazing. (You can get it at any beauty store. The link is to Sephora.) It’s $20 so it’s by no means cheap, but it smells like heaven in a bottle. (More like the beach/tanning oil in a bottle.) And it works wonders. Spray it onto wet or dray hair. Once I spray it on I twist my hair into a low bun and pin it. I leave this in for 15-20 minutes or so and then I let my hair fall. It will take a little longer to air dry but it’s wonderful. And if you want you can spray it on your hair after it dries too.

So you’re thinking, “I don’t want to spend $20 on a beachy wave spray, even if it does smell like heaven.” Well I have an much cheaper alternative for you. It’s all the craze on Pinterest right now. Salt Water Hair Spray. When I saw it I was so happy because I love my hair most when I get out of the ocean. Something about that salt water … Anyway. It’s a DIY spray, and it’s super simple.


  • 2 Cups of Hot Water
  • 1 TBS of Salt
  • 1 TBS of Coconut Oil
  • 1 TBS of Hair Gel or Conditioner (optional)

Spray onto wet hair–twist hair into sections (or a bun) and let hair dry.

And that’s it! It’s that simple. Straight hair becomes wavy in a jiffy. Hope you enjoy! And let me know if you have any questions.
