Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Wash your hair with Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner to leave it looking thicker and fuller.
  2. Rough-dry your hair with your fingers and a hairdryer, and apply sea salt spray.
  3. Once dry, take random sections of hair and wrap around a curling iron, holding for 3-5 seconds.
  4. After half of the hair has been curled, spritz with hairspray and then brush through the curls  with your fingers to loosen and create a tousled look. Repeat with the rest of the hair.

Neil’s Beach-Wave Secret: “You don’t need to twist the hair in the same direction for each one. You want this to look naturally wavy and not too uniform.”
