Do you want those beach tousled waves without going to the beach? This is one of my favorite hairstyles. It’s a simple style and it’s the classic “California Girl” look. There are even products out there specifically made for “beach waves.” Doesn’t Jessica Simpson look lovely?

I found this easy tutorial on eHow:

Step 1 Wash and condition hair

– don’t over condition!

Step 2 Apply hair product, such as Frederick Fekkai Summer Hair Beach Waves all over hair. Blow dry hair

using fingers only, scrunching as your dry.

Step 3 If you need extra curl, take a medium barrel curling iron and curl only the top of hair, starting mid-shaft.

Step 4 Flip hair upside down and toss hair with fingers to loosen curls. Spray a fine layer of hairspray and flip back. Use fingers to “tame” down any wild strands. Beautiful!

      I love this look but whenever I tried it just looks like I couldn't be bothered after five minutes. Then it just goes straight. My hair just doesn't support it. I could definitely see your hair with it though.

    • A few of my friends use the John Freida curling spray to turn their straight hair into waves, it's really good. I used to use it back when I was transitioning from straight hair to curls :)
