There is it. The notorious beach waves we so happened to tell you not to worry about perfecting this summer. Follow our quick guide to getting these waves:

  • Twist your hair up in a bun and sleep in it.
  • Wrap hair around a large barrel curling iron, and spritz with salt spray.
  • Straighten the top few inches of hair with a flat iron, then twist the flat iron and pull straight down. This one can be tricky, so check out this video for more help.
