Beachy Waves/Curls Hair Tutorial

Since a few of you asked the products/process I use to get my hair from straight to curly, so I took some time today to make a video tutorial for you!

Shane was at work while I made the video, so excuse the one-man-band camera operations 😉


Steps for those who don’t want to/can’t watch the video:

1. ‘Poo and condition hair as normal, squeeze out excess water, but don’t towel dry.

2. Apply leave-in conditioner (I use B&B Mending) generously. Mix together curl creme (I use Aveda’s Be Curly) with a gel (Aveda’s Flaxseed Aloe) in the palm of your hand and apply to your hair, coating all the strands. The combination of these two products helps my hair get waves, but without that crunchy, wet look. If I just did the creme, then my curls would be too soft, and if I just used the gel, my hair would look to hard/crunchy. A combination works great!

3. Section off the hair around the crown of your head and twist and then clip. In a separate clip, twist the rest of the hair all the way to the end and clip on the nape of your neck. Wait 15-20 minutes.

4. Unclip hair and shake out with your head (like shaking your head “no”) – don’t scrunch with fingers.

5. In sections, diffuse hair with a blow dryer with a diffuser attachment until half way dry. Air dry until completely dry.

How my hair looks when I style it straight:

(ignore that morning/creepster look on my face!)


How it looks when I air dry it, aka when I don’t do a damn thing to it 😛 :


And how it looks curly/wavy:


I hope this was helpful for those who wanted to try it out yourself! Feel free to post your own tips on getting waves/curls :)

What products do you currently use on your hair? I use the ones mentioned above to make my hair curly, but different ones when I wear it straight. I am a product junkie! I feel like I’ve tried them all! But on the other hand, I’ve found my HG (holy grail) products for almost everything (except shampoo!!) 😀

I’m off to train a client and then heading back here to cook up dinner for Shane and me. I hope you’re having a good Monday :)

  1. Cute finished product! I’m badly in need of new hair products, although I’m a die hard Bumble&Bumble curl creme fan. :)

  2. Thanks for the tutorial! I use Tresseme shampoo and conditioner. I can’t remember what it’s called, but it’s for curly hair. And if I’m feeling ambitious I scrunch it with mousse. I’m kind of hair-lazy.

  3. I did this to my hair today since it was such a crummy day out and I saw no reason whatsoever to use a flatiron — or do anything for that matter. But then I remembered your video and the fact that my hair gets wavy/curly naturally — and I put this to the test! Consensus – beautimus! :) I never tried the clip thing before but I do not use my hands. To get more scrunchiness I use the damp towel I dried my hair with to gather hair and crunch it gently toward my head while adding heat. Seems to work okay!

  4. I hardly comment, but i didd some searching and wound up here Beachy Waves/Curls Hair Tutorial – Yourr Trainer Paige.
    And I actually do have a couple of questions ffor you if you usually
    do not mind. Could it bbe just me or does it appear like a few
    of these comments appear like left by brain dewd people?
    😛 And, if you aree writing at other online sites, I’d
    like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of all of all
    your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?

  5. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
