Hair & Beauty Series: 6 Steps to perfect the ultimate boho beach waves

Cambridge Makeup Artist’s #SummerFeels Hair & Beauty Series: Making waves – how to perfect the ultimate boho beach waves

I recently asked my Facebook followers if they’d like to know my top rustic wedding venue recommendations, or a how to guide to creating perfect beach waves. A massive 76% asked for the tutorial and with increasing popularity for this tantalisingly-tousled look for summer brides, I thought I’d share my DIY guide in my first #SummerFeels blog.

  1. Wash and condition hair as per your normal routine and prior to drying, apply some Heat Protect Spray and a little mousse to give your hair some textured grip. CMA recommends: ghd Heat Protect Spray and ghd Total Volume Foam
  2. Rough dry your hair, no need to straighten
  3. Using your styling wand, start rolling sections of hair to create your waves leaving the ends out for that extra carefree look. Top Tip: avoid going in the same direction with your waves if you want to rock a slightly dishevelled look. CMA recommends: ghd CURVE® CREATIVE CURL WAND
  4. Once you’ve waved all of your hair, gently run your fingers through to relax into the perfect style. Or for added volume, tease your hair with a good backcombing brush. CMA recommends: Head Jog
  5. Give your hair a good all-over blast with a decent spray. CMA recommends: TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray for wedding day perfect peace-of-mind
  6. Top Tip: If you have very soft or fine hair that tends not to hold well, add a little dry shampoo for extra finish. CMA recommends: Kevin Murphy Doo.Over for its gorgeous subtle scent

And there you have it! Beautiful beach waves in six simple steps.
