Boo Hair Laleston Bridgend.
Beach waves never go out of style. Right now, the hot trend of the moment is shoulder-length hair and long bobs with textured waves. It’s a look that screams “Southern California” and it’s been made popular recently by stylists at the LA-based hair salons. All the stylists at Boo Hair in Laleston Bridgend love the diversity of these shapes for our clients. These shapes can be brought to life by adding some colour. Boo Hair have just launched in the salon new colours that have multi tonal effects. We currently have a promotion which enables our clients to have up to 15% of a new colour. Please ask your stylist for more information whilst in the salon.
Start with the right haircut
To get beachy waves, you don’t necessarily have to have long hair. Long bobs and shoulder-length cuts work well, too.
If you do have long hair, your hairstylist at Boo Hair will cut in long layers. Waves won’t fall right on long hair that’s all one length. And if you have thick hair, our stylists at Boo Hair in Bridgend will remove bulk from your hairstyle, otherwise your hair will be too fat and bouncy instead of tousled and sexy when you wave it.
Decide to Scrunch or to Blow Dry and Curl
You have a few options for beachy hair.
You can either let hair air dry, scrunching it as you go, which is an easy, low-maintenance way to get waves. Or you can go the more formal route and add waves with a curling iron.
The Scrunching Method
All of us have some natural wave in our hair and scrunching hair as it dries is the key to finding it. You can either let hair air-dry or use a diffuser on your hair dryer. To properly scrunch hair, hold a section in your palm, then fold it accordian-style up towards your scalp, then squeeze. When you release, you should have a perfect little wave in your hair.
The Curling Method
If you want even more curl, you can use a curling iron to create haphazard curls.
I recommend first blow-drying hair straight with a round or paddle brush. Once hair is completely dry, you’ll curl hair in 2-inch sections AWAY from your face, never towards it.
The longer your hair, the fatter your iron can be. I like a 2-inch barrel, but it’s up to you what you want to use. Always wrap away from the face, never towards it. If you have fine hair, create more volume by alternating your curl direction — so, start by wrapping around the iron away from your face on the first curl. On every other curl, wrap towards the face. After you curl a section, let it go without touching it.
Finger comb hair
Once you’re done curling your entire head of hair, run your fingers through hair to break up the curls. You can put a bit of shine serum on your fingers to add extra shine, but avoid this step if you have super fine hair. (Shine serum can weigh fine hair down).
Set the wave
Bend upside down at the waist with your head down and spritz a light holding spray on the roots. Stand back up and spritz the wave lightly to set it.
