Beachy waves for summer All year round we get our stylists get requests to style the wigs with beachy waves. Gone are the days of ringlets or perfect hair. Today’s trends involve textures that are low maintenance, and perfectly imperfect. Beachy hair tries to mimic the way your hair looks after a day at the ocean. You know that beautiful tousled look you get after a day at the beach? Even if you can’t get to the beach anytime soon, it’s easy to create this look at home (or with our stylists help). First you will need a salt spray for your hair. There are many on the market, but it’s really simple to make on your own. Add a cup of water to a spray bottle, add a few teaspoons of sea salt, and last add a little conditioner or Moroccan oil. The good thing about making your own spray is that you can customize it based on the needs of your hair. Hair textures vary; you may need more or less salt and conditioner depending on the thickness and thinness of your hair. Just spray on damp hair scrunch or diffuse to dry. Another way to create this look is with a 3 barrel iron also called a waving iron First, separate dry hair into sections. Spray each section with a heat protecting spray. Then clamp the iron down on the hair until the entire length is done. To finish, mist the hair with finishing spray for extra hold. The last way to create waves reminds me of my childhood. At night after showering allow the hair to dry about halfway. Separate hair into two or three sections and braid the hair tightly. In the morning the hair will be dry and will loosen into beautiful waves. Spray with addition salt spray and finishing spray for hold.
The Maya, a shorter shoulder length wig, naturally dries with beautiful beachy waves. Our mid-length Danya comes in wavy to curly texture that also just air-dries in perfect tousled waves. Our longer wavy wig the Mimi is so popular that it has a waiting list. Last our Atara and Pearl dry with beautiful loose waves for those who like to wear super long wigs.
