You have to find humor in the fact that one of the most sought after summer hair styles can only easily be achieved when you aren’t trying at all (a la a day at the beach). Without natural sun, saltwater and the sea breeze, beach waves are nearly impossible to recreate without loads of sprays and styling tools. That being said, there are a few new products on the market this year that may make the beach wave process a little easier to create at home. After some trial and error, the shampoos, conditioners, sea sprays and tools featured below top my list when it comes to the perfect slightly messy, textured wave look. It may not be as easy as a day at the beach, but you’ll still be thrilled with the results.
