There's no better way to style your way through those hot summer months than with a hairstyle that embraces messy texture! A fresh take on beach hair, this wavy look is also reminiscent of crimped curls.

If you want to know how to get this look, just follow our easy tutorial below!

Step one

Before you start styling, wash your hair with a thickening shampoo and conditioner.

Step two

While your hair is still wet, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout your hair. You can use a wide-tooth comb to ensure good coverage.

Step three

Create a messy side part, then separate the hair into four or five individual sections depending on its thickness. Braid each section, securing at the ends with an elastic.

Step four

Attach a diffuser to your blowdryer and dry your hair, making sure that the nozzle is pointing in a downwards direction. This helps to prevent frizz.

If you want to avoid heat styling, wash and braid your hair the night before then let your hair dry while you sleep.

Step six

Once your hair is dry, remove the elastics and shake your head so that the braids loosen. Run your fingers gently through your hair to break up the braids and separate the hair into waves.

Step seven

Warm a small mount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then scrunch it through the ends. This will add some more texture and help to keep your waves in place.

To finish, you can just give your hair a liberal spritz of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and leave it loose or you can twist a couple of sections back for a cute half-up look.
