What do I use to get the styled 'undone' beachy wave look?
The answer to this question is a little different for every person, because there are options. It really depends on your hair. I love my curling iron and it's my go to for my hair. But, I also like to curl with a flat iron. I also suggest to a lot of clients that they try a wand. It's not totally my thing, but I hear from clients how easy it is for them to use because they are not good with a curling iron. I have not used it personally, but a few of my clients are in love with the Beach Wavier. I always start with what they are comfortable using.
Also what's important for this look is product. You want a product with thermal protection because you will be applying heat to your hair. Then once you are done curling you want to shake it out with a texture spray. My favorite product is definitely Oribe's Dry Texture Spray. Then I go back in with a pomade to piece it out a bit more and calm down how crazy I get with the dry texture Spray.
