Curling Irons are a fun tool to use when it comes to creating gorgeous hairstyles. From voluminous curls to beach waves and from romantic up-dos to bouncy ringlets, a good curling iron can help you tap into your creativity. With the summer season in full swing, beach waves are one of the most popular hairstyles seen around. While you plug in your curling iron, all set for creating waves in your hair, let us give you a few tips and tricks to ensure that your hairstyle turns out to be perfect!
Don’t forget a heat protector
Heat styling tools can contribute majorly towards the loss of moisture from your hair. Therefore, it is very necessary to apply a heat protectant before you start styling your hair. Heat protectants are available in form of heat-activated sprays or creams. They deposit a protective coat over your strands preventing them from frying under heat.

For beach waves, begin with dry hair
Beach waves are a convenient hairstyle that you do not need a lot of prepping for! You just need to begin with dry hair and it doesn’t even matter if you have washed your hair a day earlier. However, if you have just washed your hair, make sure it is dry before you begin styling. Your hair can be straight or even wavy.
Pay attention to the sections
Part your hair in the middle, creating two large sections of your hair. Starting at the nape of your neck, take a small, workable section no thicker than two inches, and curl it. From here, you will work your way up to the front and then proceed with the other half.
Add variety to your curls
To achieve effortless and gorgeous beach waves, adding variety to your curls is one tip that won’t let you down. Use different sized barrels for curling different sections. You can follow a pattern if you like or keep it random. Another way to add variety to curls is to make sure you don’t curl all sections the same way. You can also leave out thin sections while curling as that would give a more natural look. Once you are done, run your fingers through your hair, tousling it a little so the curls separate.
