Beach waves are officially an urban trend. The disheveled elegance creates a negligent allure; the romantic tousle and flow moves so gracefully down the eye line, cheekbones, neck, and shoulders. It is all about feminine beauty –– without ever looking like you tried too hard. Emmy Rossum wears the beach wave luscious and loamy. Looking carefree, even haphazard, her hairstyle has a playful, beatnik spirit that gives her a sexy and confident look.
Step: Towel-dry hair to damp. Apply styling whip, roots to ends. Follow with styling creme, roots to ends. (If hair needs extra encouragement to wave and curl, substitute styling creme for curl enhancer.)
Step: From the crown down, wrap two-to-three inch sections of hair around three fingers, creating tight, hand-held twists. Now blowdry each hand-held twist up and down with the nozzle always pointing down. Repeat this technique all over the shape and style. It is a great way to shape loose, cascading, natural-looking wave and curl patterns.
Step: Increase texture, volume, and the gritty, loved-in beachy feel by pulsing refinish dry shampoo into the roots. Tousle and shake out.
