Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end for our beloved season’s trends. Some timeless looks can be enjoyed regardless of the season. For one, there’s the effortless beach waves — a classic hairdo that can glam you up no matter the day. Whether you’re styling your locks for every day or for special occasions, this one will surely make you elegantly sophisticated.  If you’re wondering how to achieve this hairstyle, then read on to find out which tools can help.

Hair Dryer

One way to get natural-looking beach waves is by doing the tie-and-dry trick. Simply twist sections of your hear and tie them in small buns at the base of your head, then dry them off. You can opt to wait for your hair to dry naturally, but if you’re in a rush, make things quick with a powerful hair dryer like the Paul Mitchell Neuro Halo Touchscreen Dryer. Designed by world-renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid, this techy tool features a touchscreen display that controls heat and airflow. Opt to use the ion settings so your hair dries quickly and suffers less frizz and damage. After your hair dries up, simply undo the buns and run your fingers through your hair to loosen them up. 

Flat Iron

Flat irons aren’t limited to just giving you a smooth and sleek look. In fact, if you want more defined curls, a tool like the Corioliss C3 Silver Paisley Hair Straightener is your best bet. Thanks to its negative ion tech, this particular flat iron will give you wavy locks with a silky soft finish. Simply wrap your hair around the iron and slide the strands through the plates while you clamp. Remember not to clamp too hard or you might have trouble making your hair glide in between. It should be quick and easy once you get the hang of it.  

Curling Wand

Style your beach waves with Dyson Airwrap Styler, a multi-purpose hair-styling tool

As reliable flat irons can be, using them can be quite time-consuming if your crowning glory is thick. If this is the case, it might be better for you to use a curling wand instead. If you’re looking for a reliable one, why not invest in a Dyson Airwrap Styler? This tool is all you need for your whole hairstyling routine as it has different attachments to suit your needs. To get those beach waves, opt to use one of the two included Airwrap barrels. With this, there’s no need to twist your wrists around to curl your hair, as the styler attracts and wraps the hair to itself using air.

Hot Air Brush

If you want an even more fuss-free way to curl your hair, then try out a hot air brush instead. With Infinitipro by Conair Hot Air Spin Brush, you can skip the blow-drying session and get on with styling your hair even when it’s still wet. This two-in-one styler curls while it dries — perfect if you have sudden plans popping up. Get the stylish wavy hair by wrapping your hair around the brush, which is made easier by the buttons that control the spin’s brush rotation. Hold your wrapped hair right by your roots for a few seconds and voila —you’ve got your luxuriously curled locks.
