Who says beach waves are only for long hair?
I certainly didn’t!
This collection of tutorials will teach you how to get sexy beach waves for SHORT hair, and as it turns out, it’s not as difficult as it looks! All you need are the right products and techniques, and these step-by-step clips will give you all of the information you need to give your locks that tousled, relax look we all know and love.
I’m particularly in love with the first tutorial as I think it’s one of the most glamorous short hairstyles I’ve ever seen, and I’m tempted to cut my locks off every time I watch it.
1. Messy Waves – Very Short Hair Tutorial by stillGLAMORUS
If you have VERY short hair and want to know how to get SEXY waves, you HAVE to watch this tutorial. I absolutely love this style!
2. Short Hair Easy Beach Waves by ElleLearyArtistry
I wasn’t sure I was going to like the finished look when she first started curling her hair, but she really pulled it together and I love the products she recommends (Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, Got 2b Back to Bed Texture Powder, and Kevin Murphy Sticky Business.)
3. Beachy Waves Hair Tutorial by MakeupByAlli
If you have an old-school curling iron with a clamp (like me!), this is a great tutorial to teach you how to get gorgeous beach waves without using a fancy curling wand!
4. Short Hair Flat Iron Waves by Hairstyle Confessions
I like how simple, yet sexy this style is!
5. Beachy Effortless Waves by Nicole Guerriero
The biggest thing I learned from this tutorial (other than the fact that I love Nicole’s new style!) is to use a curling wand with a larger barrel, and after doing a bit of research, I’ve got my eye on this Nume Lustrum Tourmaline Ceramic 5 Barrel Curling Iron Styling Set. I also love her trick for using a wide-toothed comb to add more volume!
