How to beach wave hair with a flat iron
If there’s a hairstyle that looks good on everyone, it’s a loose, beachy wave - the more effortless-looking, the better. But, there’s an exact science that goes into creating that undone, just-woke-up vibe, and we’re here to break it down for you. With the right tool, it’s the ideal, easy everyday look.
Here’s exactly how to achieve the perfect beach wave hairstyle, using the Gallas professional grade negative-ion sleek hair straightener....
USE A FLAT IRON, GALLASPRO FLAT IRON.
The need for styling tools in achieving an effortlessly undone look might be a surprise to some. But it might be even more of a surprise to know that the perfect tool for styling voluminous waves is none other than a flat iron. Rather than being reserved for sleek styles only, when used in a specific way, hair straighteners can create the perfect wave. It’s actually the secret to every Cool Girl hair style.
Start with straight hair. Yes, even though we’re going for bouncy waves, sleek and straight hair provides the ideal base for styling. Comb through first with the Gallas Turbo Styling Comb to start with straight, shiny hair, ready to easily work your way through.
Rotate the flat iron toward your face. Move the straightener through a section of hair, from root to tip, and rotate it 180 degrees toward your face - so the hair is in turn curling away from your face. Slide the flat iron down the section at this angle, and you’ll be left with a perfect loose curl, curling away from your face.
Know your angles. This angle is the key to creating an undone, relaxed, beachy wave. Creating curls that curl inwards to the face creates a different curled look entirely.
Repeat all the way through the hair
Slide the flat iron through the rest of your hair, moving from root to tip, again rotated 180 degrees away from your face. Do this for every section of your hair - you don’t want to leave any straight strands for this look. Move all the way round your hair repeating the step, so that all your hair ends in a relaxed curl.
SHAKE IT OFF. Run your fingers through your hair to shake out the curls to achieve a lived-in, effortless look. Relaxing the waves with your fingers rather than a brush is gentler, and will help keep the wave in tact while texturing the look.
