You can use Verb Sea Texture Spray or Herbivore Botanicals – All Natural Sea Mist Hair Spray. However, after spraying stick the top section of your hair with a large salon clip and place it at the top of your head. Then brush the bottom section of your hair with a wide-toothed comb, like Ouidad Double Detangler Comb. Comb your hair section by section (with a 2-ich piece of hair).
  • Step 3 – Now put the rollers horizontally and wrap the middle section of your hair over it. For instance, if your hair is 10 inches long, place the roller on your hair about 5 inches from your scalp. Wrap the rest of the lower part of your hair around the roller in spiral form. Try to avoid overlapping the hair.
  • Step 4 – Keep rolling the bottom section of the hair with different sizes of hot rollers and section the part with different width as well. This will create a good beach shape and texture on your hair.
  • Step 5 – Leave the rollers as it is for about 12-15 minutes or until it becomes cool down completely. After cooling down, remove the rollers and brush very gently.

  1. Hi there!

    I must say that you come with some really amazing ideas to write articles on. It’s a comprehensive and well-put-together article with adequate information. I have read this piece of writing from start to finish and I loved every section of it.

    I adorn my short tresses with luscious beach waves using a 1-inch flat iron. My hair never suffered from any breakage or damage and looks absolutely gorgeous throughout the day.

    To all the girls out there, don’t waste your money on other styling tools to create beach waves in your hair. Trust me a flat iron works just as well.

    Much love!

  2. Hello,

    I have always liked your blog. Every time I faced any hair related problem or wanted to know about something, your blog is my only “go-to”.

    However, I cannot say the same for this article. The idea is good. But the way you described each step is not satisfactory at all, especially in the “Beach Waves with Flat Iron” section. I seriously didn’t understand what you have explained is the 3rd step.

    Moreover, you didn’t recommend enough products. I would have loved to go through a rich content. But this content is very poor. If I could, I would have rated it with 0 stars.

    Please improve your writings. Otherwise, your readers will lose trust in you.

  3. Hi there,

    I use Velcro rollers and they produce gorgeous beach waves in my hair. Plus these rollers are also inexpensive. Why didn’t you include Velcro rollers on this list? Don’t you think they are capable of creating luscious beach waves?

    Waiting for your reply!

    • Dear Christina,

      Thank you for taking the time and writing to us.

      Well, there is no doubt that the Velcro rollers can create amazing beach waves. However, as we are only talking about heated styling tools here, we didn’t include Velcro rollers.

      We hope this would satisfy your queries.
