Then I use Beach Blonde™ Smooth Seas™ Detangling Conditioner, to untie knots and snags, moisturize my hair, and give it a little extra texture. After I’ve let my hair air-dry, I’ll go through the steps outlined in the video above with a 1 ¾ inch curling iron.

The Sea Salt Spray gives you that gorgeous, beachy texture all year round, whether you’re a blonde or brunette. Just spritz a little bit in your hair for an effortless look that also happens to smell great. This spray has a delicious coconut smell, which reminds me of being on vacation. It’s pretty amazing!

Necklace c/o: Wrenn Jewelry I recently posted about my adventures in chopping off all my hair for the first time in 15 years.  Not sure what came over me, because then I went and had my bestie Brittney cut off several more inches. Brittney gives a MEAN haircut and she’s also incredible at styling the best beach waves.  I went in with a photo of Kendi for inspiration and I left Brittney’s chair completely thrilled with my new wavy do.  BUT…there was something about my new short hair that I didn’t anticipate.  I had imagines wearing it in loose, casual, wavy curls everyday this summer.  But when I went to curl it with my curling iron a few days later I was stuck with a poofy, wonky, golden girls-ish disaster.  And then, and hour later my hair was back to being stick straight. Ugh. It turned out that curling short hair wasn’t as easy as I had expected.  When I posted the above pic on instagram many of you seemed to be having the exact same trouble curling your short hair. So I called Brittney and I begged her to teach us her ways so that I could be happy with my new style.  Brittney taught me that the secret to beach waves for short hair is a HAIR STRAIGHTENER, not a curling iron!  I’ve since practiced and almost perfected this technique for myself.  And today Brittney is here to teach us how its done. Yay Brittney, we love you!

1. Tie up the top section of your hair. 2. Prep hair with a heat protectant like Number 4 Thermal Styling Spray. 3. Wrap hair around a wide-barrel curling wand like Sedu’s Clipless Iron (a Birchbox fave), alternating directions to give hair a wavier texture. 4. Let down the middle and top sections of your hair, and repeat. 5. For the face-framing sections of hair, take smaller pieces, alternating the direction of the wave. 6. As a final step, spritz your hair with a sea salt spray like Sachajuan Ocean Mist and scrunch your hair to create matte texture.

Aquage Sea Salt or Wella Ocean Spritz. Brittney gives 3 ways to use the product.  1. using a sea salt spray at your roots when your hair is damp will give your root a little lift and texture when it dries. 2.  it is also great using sea salt spray if you have natural curl or wave–wash your hair at night, spray generously with sea salt spray and sleep on a towel (if your hair is really long or thick you may want to twist or braid it before you sleep on it. Then in the morning you can use this method to curl any pieces that didn’t dry right. 3. After you’ve curled your hair, if it looks too “styled” you can use this on the dry hair to grit it up.

Thanks for posting the information and video. I ordered the flat iron and the Oribe spray so I can try this myself. My hair is fine so I’ve always been concerned about using a flat iron, I don’t want to crush any volume I might have. I’ve tried wrapping my hair around a round curling iron but it doesn’t have the same effect, but I have never used the spray. I know my fine hair won’t look like either of the two shown here, but I’m hopeful I can get close. If your stylist has any additional tips to maintain volume for fine hair, I’d love to hear it!

Take you stylist a picture of Ashley’s hair and that will help. If your hair is the same texture as Ashleys then these are my recommendations. Overall length should be just above your shoulders so that it does not drag on shoulders when its dry, but rather swings when you move your head. The back is cut slightly shorter than the front but it is not “stacked” or cut like an A-line bob. The layers are long and are slighly longer toward the front of the face. If your hair is thicker or more coarse then you may need some razor, or point cutting, or texturizing to acheive this look.
