Quick & easy way to get beach waves

I'll be honest, I haven't done this to my hair since I was around 5 years old, but I tried it last night and I have to say that I really like the effect. So, do you want to get your hair to the 'beach wave' style with very minimal effort? If yes, then read on...
I'm guessing that a high number of people have tried this at some point in their lives, but this is for the ones who haven't! So here's all that you have to do...

  • Wash your hair
  • Put plats (braids if you're America) in your hair while it's damp. The bigger the plats, the bigger the waves. 
  • Tie string around the bottom of each of the plats. The string doesn't damage your hair like elastic bands would.
  • In the morning simply pull the pieces of string from the ends of you hair. The string doesn't snag so don't worry about that!
  • Carefully take out the plats and run your fingers through your hair and there you go!

You can always add some product to define the waves if you wish :)


  1. I always end up w/a bit of a 'fro'...maybe I'm doing too small a braid (obv american).
