“The beach wave” conjures images of the lived-in elegance of perfectly imperfect ‘S’ shaped waves. The style features straight hair at the crown, and drops down into a tumbling waterfall of waves. But we are now on the crest of a new wave.  Like its curlier cousin, the urban wave is defined by a straight drop down from the crown, which flows into tousled texture.
