Hair Tutorial: Beach Waves

Remember when I posted pictures of my middle part and then you asked for a video on how to do beach waves?  Then remember how I was all, "sure thing sweet cheeks!  anything you want you get!"?  And then remember how I didn't do my hair for like a month?  Unless you consider a messy excuse for a top knot a hair-do. 
Well soul sisters, I'm here with a hair how-to.  You can thank my BFF for turning the dirty thirty, forcing me to clean my act up and look presentable for an evening out.  My husband thanks her as well. 
I have two methods for creating beach waves, one involves using the flat iron {yes FLAT iron} and the other requires a 1 inch curling iron.  For this how-to we'll start with the flat iron method just because I think it holds the curl longer {and it was humid when I did this} and I got more questions like "OMG you use a FLAT iron?  How in the world?!" So I'm taking the kill two birds with one stone approach on this video.
Disclaimer:  I have a cold sore, still.  Thank you NC sun.  I got a great tan, yes, but the cold sore was a little unnecessary.
Also I don't know how to do fancy things like make this fast-forward 6.5 minutes so if you want to jump to about 7.5 minutes to see the results you are welcome to.  Sorry for the rambling.

I ended up not needing to touch up the curls/waves after all.  Just a spritz of the hair spray and good to go!
Like I said, let me know if you try this out.  If you love or hate it!  If you have a better suggestion.

p.s. see that adorable peace tee?  Well they're available to order again!  Leave me a comment with your size {make sure you're email is included} and I'll get you on the list for round 3!  Details are the same as before, click here for more info.

  10. I may have to try this! But I have very fine, very straight hair so "beach waves" may turn into girlfriend-needs-to-brush-her-hair in less than 2 hours!
