How To Create Celebrity Style Sexy Beach Waves - DIY Salt Spray

It's getting HOT down here in Melbourne and we are just two sleeps away from it being Summer officially! As the temperatures soar today I won't be making it to the beach *sigh* but that doesn't mean I can't create that super sexy, fresh from the beach wavy look at home. And no ladies, in this heat we do not want to use tongs, curlers or wands. All we want is texture and a slightly matte finish to create that authentic beach babe look and that means we need SALT!!


Here's what you'll need

1.) Grab yourself a plastic spray / mist bottle. Check out your laundry or bathroom cabinet before you head out to the shops you may just have one floating around (be sure to clean it thoroughly first!)

2.) Fill the bottle with warm water adding 1 and a half tablespoons of sea salt per cup of water. Stir until dissolved. If you're having trouble dissolving the salt heat it in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until all the salt disappears.

3.) Add a tablespoon of your favorite hair gel (if you don't have any the mix will still work without it)

4.) To add some moisture and lessen frizz add a few drops of smoothing serum or a teaspoon of coconut oil and give the bottle a shake.


Spray salt mix on dry hair scrunching as you go. Tuck hair behind ears and allow to dry naturally. When hair is dry bring hair out from behind your ears and give it a shake. This creates a soft tousled look with a defined wave framing the face.

Shampoo and condition your hair the night before. Dry hair to about 80% with a towel and hair dryer (just run your fingers through your hair do not brush out your natural waves). Spray salt mix all over running your fingers through it. Tuck hair behind your ears and make a low braid in the back and allow to dry overnight. This method is great if you don't have naturally wavy hair as the braid will create defined waves.

It doesn't matter what length your hair is or what color this style is perfect for everyone, it's super simple and super cheap. For those days you want to be effortlessly sexy go ahead and try our salt spray recipe, I'm sure you'll look a million bucks!
