For the past few months, this is the hairstyle I've been doing the most. It's quick and easy to achieve and looks effortless. I like to start with freshly washed and blow dried hair, just so it lasts longer. If you really want to get that beachy texture, wash your hair using a shampoo and conditioner such as Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner. However, i usually use just my normal hair washing routine.

Once the hair is dried, section it off leaving the bottom layer of hair. This is essential for me as my hair is so thick however if you have thin or short hair, you may not have to do this although i always find it much easier. I then like to spray this bottom layer with heat protection and brush it through to make you sure its evenly covered and the hair is ready to be curled. My favourite is the Tresemme Heat Defence Styling Spray.

To achieve the curls/waves i use the Wella Pro- Curl Conical Wand and holding the wand facing down, i wrap different, random sized sections around it. I prefer to take quite big sections of hair to get a looser wave/curl. For most of my hair i alternate the direction in which i wrap my hair around the wand and there is no real pattern to it. This allows you to get much more messy waves. Its only when i get to the front, where i make sure i curl the very front pieces away from my face, just to frame it a little. However, how you style your fringe/bangs/parting depends on your own hairstyle. 

I only leave the hair for a few seconds, so once again its more of a wave although to create extra texture and when i want a bit more 'oomph' i do hold certain sections for slightly longer so you have the contrast of curls and waves to make it more 'messy'.

Once all the hair is styled i spray in a salt spray and then scrunch my hair. I've been loving the Tigi Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray to once again get much more texture and achieve beachy and dishevelled waves. It's now time for hairspray to hold the look, although i do like how it drops slightly throughout the day so I used the L'oreal Elnett Satin in normal strength. Once I've hairsprayed, i sometimes add more salt spray just to reinforce the texture and get it just how i like it.
