Beach curls, something that I feel like most of us want in our hair right? I love the look of them and just wish that they really came with the beach too ha. Beach curls are something that I have been really working on to perfect in my hair for awhile now. I finally have a system that gives me the curls that I want and they last for days too. Let’s be honest, who has time to curl their hair everyday? Not this mama!
I will say that it took me a few times to get them to look right with this technique, but once I got it figured out it is super simple.
Here are a few tips:
You are going to want a curling iron with a clamp on it.
I leave all of my hair down and take vertical sections.
Don’t be too precise, you want the look to be messy.
Use beach spray after, it makes a huge difference!
Step one: Take a one inch section of hair (I curl my bangs differently so I leave those out until the very end)
Step two: Clamp the curling iron half way down the section of hair and curl like normal.
Step three: Loosen the clamp and move the curling iron down the the bottom of the hair leaving about an inch out and curl like normal.
Step four: Unwind the curling iron leaving it clamped with the hair in it still. This will “twirl” your hair into a rope.
Step five: Twist the hair back up in the curling iron with the hair like a rope.
Step six: Unwind hair and when you get to the end of the hair where it is clamped pull the curling iron straight down to straighten the ends.

That is it! They are super easy and last me a full week. I do curl the front section (two curls on each side) every day but that is it! I hope you love it as much as I do!
