How to Get Beachy Waves


We all love that just-rolled-out-of-bed, tousled beach-wave look that comes from spending a day soaking up the sun. Effortlessly cool and laid-back, wavy hair is one of those rare trends that has graced runways, to red carpets, to everyday wear. Unfortunately for those of us who are nowhere near a beach, this seemingly effortless and mussed-up summer style can actually require a lot of effort (and hair products) when you don’t have the help of saltwater readily at hand. Luckily, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite styling products from Bumble and Bumble that leave you with beach-ready, perfectly unkempt waves.

Use a cream rinse made with sea salt

Starting off with Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Surf Cream Rinse Conditioner, lather your strands with a shampoo and conditioner infused with sea salt. Designed to create a base for beachy styles, the Foam Wash is formulated with sea botanicals and body-enhancing minerals while the Surf Cream Rinse softens texture without weighing hair down.

Add volume with a texturizing mousse

The trick to achieving full-bodied hair for those of us with finer hair? A good texturizing mousse. Apply Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Full Foam Mousse to damp hair, scrunching the strands for an unfinished look.

Apply heat with a curling iron

For straight or fine hair textures, take small angled sections of hair once they’re dry and add waves with a one to two-inch barrel curling iron. For a non-heat alternative, divide your hair into two sections and loosely french braid each side, leaving them to dry while you sleep. Apply Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Infusion or Surf Spray in the morning for a texture boost. Formulated with conditioners and sea salt, the Surf Infusion adds windswept texture and extra volume.

Finish off with a hair cream and hairspray

For the final touches on long-lasting beachy waves, set everything in place with Bumble and Bumble’s Texture (Un)dressing Cream and Thickening Dryspun Finish. With a dry moisture finish, the (Un)dressing Cream gives your hair a hint of grit and lift for that perfectly undone look. Finish off with Thickening Dryspun Finish, designed with raw silk powders and light-holding polymers for instant volume and fullness.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
