How to Get Beach Waves or Bedhead

It isnโ€™t always easy to achieve the unkempt look for your hair. In fact, it just might take a bit of styling. The number one rule to remember with this look is to look natural without overworking it too much.

Some recommendations for getting beach waves include:

  • Start by building volume by brushing the hair from underneath your roots and down the strands. To learn the right way to back brush, try out a few techniques on your hair. Brushing from underneath isnโ€™t as aggressive as teasing the hair.
  • Divide your hair in half with a part down the middle and twist your hair into sections. Twist each section into small mini buns and hold them in place with a couple of bobby pins. Dry your hair with a blow dryer and take out the bobby pins for a beachy look.
  • For straight hair, you want to use a texturizing spray to add texture and volume. Another way to do this is to randomly use a large curling iron on your hair, in different directions, to build volume.
  • For curly hair, you may need to make your hair less unruly than it looks when unstyled. Try blow drying your hair downward, so it is drying from the roots to the ends of your hair. By actually pulling curls out of your hair, it gives a tousled look.
  • Get an extra lift with dry shampoo sprayed at your roots. This added dimension keeps your hair from getting oily throughout the day.

The Tousled Look: Great for Second Day Hair

If you donโ€™t have time to wash your hair in the morning or your hair doesnโ€™t do well with a daily wash, beach waves are the look you want! You can roll out of bed, add a bit of product, and go about your day.

The biggest benefit of tousled hair is how it does well on the second day of wear. Other benefits of this style are ease of maintenance, no need to get cut regularly, and looking good for every occasion.

The Style for Every Hair Length

When you love your current style, but want to change up your daily look, try giving yourself the unkempt look. It works for short, long, and medium hair lengths.

In addition, if you are in between styles and trying to grow out your length, tousled hair serves as a strong transitional look as you wait for new growth. Look no further than the bedhead look if you are ready to finally feel confident in the way your hair looks!
