Heey!!  Happy Summer. :)

Here is a quick summer hair style to give your hair a nice wavey look.

**I used heat to achieve this look but you can opt to skip steps 2 and 3 if you are avoiding flat irons, blow dryers)

Beach Hair: Making Waves

It was fairly simple.

Step 1: Wash/condition your hair ( use a leave in conditioner)

Step 2: Blow dry your hair in sections ( I used a cool setting)

Step 3: Flat iron your hair to desired sleekness

Step 4: Separate your hair into 8 sections ([See image] more or less depending on your preference)

Step 5: Two strand twist each section

Step 6: Wrap each twist around each other

Step 7: Secure each knot with a clip or bobby pin

Step 8: Let the knots set for at least 4 hours ( the waves will hold better if you let them stay in longer)

Step 9: Put a satin cap on ( I usually go to bed ) :)

Step 10:  Remove each section and let the hair fall naturally (limit fluffing with your fingers because it could create frizz)

I apologize for the poor image quality on my photos, I’m working on getting a new camera. Bare with me,  please :)

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a note or leave it in the comment section.

Enjoy Your Journeys. ~ Kristi
