When I was a toddler, my mom says that my hair was golden blonde and it was curly. However, one day, mom decided that I needed a haircut and she cut my curly locks quite short. Ever since that day, my hair grew out to be straight and, to be frank with you, quite boring. But, when I think about it, you can fool around with straight hair way more easily than you can with curly hair, so, I will stop complaining. Whenever I feel like I need a change in my look, I always opt for natural waves. However, a long time elapsed before I got the hang of natural waves.
So, if you’ve been wondering how to achieve beautiful beachy waves without having to go to the beach, you’re in the right place.
Curling Iron Technique
One of the easiest and fastest ways of achieving the look is with a curling iron. Before you begin, you should consider the fact that your hair might experience a little damage from the heat, so make sure you use a heat protective primer beforehand. After that, roll each strand of hair around the curling iron. When you’re done, let your hair cool down before brushing it.
Brushing it works too, however, running your fingers through your curls works better.

Flat Iron Technique
In case you don’t have a curling iron, you can use your hair straightener! How thick your strand of hair is depends on your choice. Take the section of hair and then slowly turn your flat iron curler outwards or inwards, depending on the type of curls you want to achieve.

Start by doing the bottom hair first and then go upward until you achieve the desired look.
As you can notice, curling your hair with a flat iron gives them more texture. However, both techniques are easy to pull off and work every time.
Maintain The Look
Okay, so you got the curls. Now what? Well, now it is time to think about how you will maintain them. Try using a hairspray on it, and the look will last longer if you use some dry shampoo. So, if your hair is a little greasy, try some dry shampoo instead of washing your hair.
