Did you know that there are 427,000 beachy wave tutorials on Google? Don't fret. You're not going to get a Live ass tutorial from me. Because I speak in 16 syllable intervals, a 2 minute video would turn into a half an hour. But since several of you have asked me about how I do my hair, I will try to sum it up.
I myself sat one Saturday for hours and researched these such tutorials. Then this one on Makaila's blog appeared and became a life savor. I have naturally curly hair. It's beast like, but I straighten it most days because I am a lazy heifer. But if I go out this is how I usually do my hair. Charlie's Angel fighting crime like.
But my secret because I live in the south with the humidity is this shitz right here (hold on it's coming). It works on curly or straight hair, thick or thin hair and it smells delish.
First, I blow dry my hair without any brushes or combs using only my fingers. Then I twist it into a bun at the base of my neck with an elastic and hold it for 15 minutes (or until I finish putting on my war paint).
Then I spray my whole head and some individual strands with Beyond the Zone Noodle Head. This is the bomb dot com! It holds every wave in place and I can get up the next day and it's still curled although a hot mess.
Then because I was born a poor white child, I made my own clampless curling iron with a 1 inch iron I had. How? I just popped off the the little brackets that are held together by a spring. Yep, two seconds and I became the poster child for DIY and had my own redneck styling tool. Honey Boo Boo's mom take note.
I wrap sections around the curling iron and hold for 20 seconds. The key to my style is I do alternating directions holding the iron vertical some wrapped away from the face, some wrapped forward all the way down the barrel, holding the ends free. I do not touch the waves unless I need a little touch up.
I then take a little hair spray and spray all over, get dressed, then take my hands and make it messy, pulling my fingers from the roots up. I spray it with professional hold hair spray, not a lot but enough in the back because my hair is heavy and tends to lose curl in the back first.
I like this because it's not perfect like me. And I am lucky because my hair will do anything. And the kicker is, this takes about 10 minutes. So go check out the tutorial over at M's, get the Noodle Head at your local Sally's Beauty Supply or even order it, remember redneck curling iron and you will be joining me as the 428,000th blogger who has explained the art of beachy waves.
Until next time, I gotta go see Bosley and talk to Charlie now. I hear there is someone trying to rob the Piggly Wiggly of all the turkeys and I need to save the day for Thursday.
Happy Big Hair people,
