Hi everyone! After I put up my video on a day in our lives I’ve had several requests for a hair tutorial video. I thought it sounded like a fun idea, so here we go. Check out the video below to see how I create these loose curls!



While I take a shower daily, my hairdresser advised me not to wash my hair daily. Washing dries out your hair, and since I color and heat style my hair it’s already dry to start out with.

I normally wash my hair every other day, so you will want to do this tutorial on a wash day for best results.

I naturally have rather thick, course, and wavy hair. Honestly, it’s like big fluffy 80’s hair. Man I looked great during that decade.

Unfortunately the sleek look the 90’s brought around didn’t quite mesh well with all of my lovely frizz. And since smooth hair has remained the “in” look ever since then, it’s been hard on my hair.

I have to take steps.

Lots of steps.

And heat.

Lots of heat.

I also have to use good anti-frizz products to keep that Material Girl 80’s look at bay.

And I’ve found that the round brush help smooth out my locks as well, so if you’re naturally frizzy like me you might want to try mastering the round brush technique.

I think this tutorial will work on most hairstyles though, even those of you lucky girls with naturally smooth hair. If your hair doesn’t hold curl well, you might want to add a little hair spray to each curl as you go. Mine tends to hold curl fairly well, so I didn’t do that in the video, but it’s just something to consider.

All of that said, here’s my beachy waves hair tutorial. I hope you enjoy it, and that it helps some of you!


Supplies I used:



Happy hair day!


  1. How is your hair cut??? Just layers at the top??? It seems your hair is straight across on the bottom and usually with layers all over it has the V in the back. Is yours like that??

  2. I’m going to try this! I have your opposite hair (baby fine and mostly straight) but I’m hoping it works for me. I have a very hard time getting my hair to hold curl. But you work with what you’ve got! I’m hoping to maybe get a slight wave.

    1. Leigh,
      Have you tried one of the Chi curling wands? They’re fatter at one end, then skinnier at the other. They create great curl and it holds really well in my girls hair, which is thinner than mine.

  3. Awesome tutorial….I have the hardest time trying to round brush my hair because it is so thick….I always tried to do it with it mostly wet though. I am going to try drying and then round brushing….thanks!!! My hair is always frizzy too after drying….do you ever wear it naturally curly??? Like mousse and scrunch?? I would love to see a tutorial on that.
