Messy chunky beach waves... Easy tutorial!

Messy chunky beach waves... Easy tutorial!
I'm one of those people who was cursed with stick straight thin hair that hates to curl. I used to do the traditional "braid your hair before bed" and rag curling tricks to get nice beachy waves, but they never ended up turning out right the next day. I didn't like the fact that the process took a whole night, and I had no way of knowing what my hair was going to look like when I pulled the braids/rags out. Do you know how nerve-wracking that is, especially if you have an event to go to (*cough* my brother's wedding)? Would the curls be too tight? I developed my own way of doing nice randomly chunky waves. Here's how to get some nice messy random waves, without sleeping on a head of uncomfortableness. I absolutely LOVE the randomness of these curls. Have you seen this method done before? "How do you put your hair in the flat iron without burning your fingers?" Feel free to Pin!!

How to Do Boho Curls Some celebrities seem to have that perfectly effortless look all the time. Mary Kate Olsen, Nicole Richie, Rachel Zoe and Selena Gomez come to mind with their laid-back choice of wardrobe, long hair and loose waves.

It's completely fool proof. To prep, you'll just need a one-inch curling iron, some hair and about 10-15 minutes. 1. 2. Repeat until your whole head is done. I like to keep my boho curls for as many days as possible.

Beauty Tips For Hair | Homemade Beauty Tips For Hair | Beauty Tips For Hairs Healthy and lustrous hair completes the beauty and it is the demand of all whether it is a male or female. Hair only looks attractive and beautiful when they are free of damage and healthy. Following are some simple tips which can be helpful to get healthy and beautiful hair: • Massage your hair with the oil before shampooing them. Massage stimulates the scalp and increases the blood circulation and the hair will be nourished by the increased blood flow to the scalp. • After washing the hair put conditioner and leave it for 5-10 minutes. • Get your hair trimmed in every six to eight weeks. • Avoid harsh hair accessories. • Wrap your hair gently in the towel and let it absorb the moisture for few minutes instead of rubbing the hair. • Protect the hair from the excessive exposure to sunlight. • Avoid the shampoos which contain harsh chemicals. • You can also add a few drops of lavender oil into the shampoo to give your hair a smooth and lustrous look.
