Instant beach hair how-to: After shampooing and conditioning hair, towel dry and apply a bit of texturizing creme. Either braid hair into three to six sections, or put up into a messy bun. Blast hair with a blow-dryer until dry and carefully unravel hair from hair-tie. Gently rake your fingers through your hair and voila! You can also use a 1" curling iron on random pieces of hair, curling only from the middle to the end of the strand to perfect your beachy look.
