Our pal, Laura, always has the most amazing giant waves in her hair. I wanted to learn her method, and I had a feeling our blog readers would like it too. (right? right!) So without further ado, here's Laura's styling technique for mega beachy waves!First, pull your hair into 2-3 sections. Start with the bottom section. Wrap small sections of hair around your curling iron starting at the root, pulling it tight and holding each strand on the iron for five seconds. Work your way up through each layer, finishing with the bangs. Run your fingers through the curls, loosening them a little. Tease your roots around the crown of your head. Be sure to tease layers under the top layer, so all of the fuzziness is hidden underneath layers. Spray a little spray wax on your fingers and use it to define the ends of your hair. Spray with a finishing spray and enjoy your big beachy waves all day long!
The spray wax Laura uses is Sexy Hair Short Sexy Hair Play Dirty Texturizing Hair Spray.Now I'm off to try it on my own hair! And be sure to check out Laura's brand new blog, The Band Wife. xo. Elsie

I did this today, yay! But I would definitely suggest not washing your hair before hand OR using a really good style prep, like, Aveda pure abundance style-prep!
(I would post a link to my blog but it’s a sex blog and doesn’t quite fit in among the rest of the blogs posted!)
so gorgeous! whenever i wrap my hair around the barrel i seem to always burn my hand, but will give it another try 🙂

So so pretty, but sadly I have too much hair and curls drop out unless they are set so hard that they go crunchy (sigh)
