The perfect summer hairstyle? Effortless beach waves.
Our favorite reality star and new momma Khloe Kardashian has been rocking the style for years now, and it turns out recreating it is not as hard as it looks! Celebrity hairstylist Kieran McKenna of Kieran McKenna Salon showed us step-by-step instructions to recreate Khloe's signature hairstyle.
"Recreating beachy waves without going to the beach is a lot easier than it sounds," McKenna says. "The key? Make sure your curls don't look too perfect — you want to look like you've been swimming in the ocean all day."
Section your hair. Separate a two-thirds section of hair and clip it up and out of the way, leaving the bottom third portion of your hair down. (Ear to ear across the back of your head).
Start curling. After spraying your hair with a heat protectant spray, take a 1 or 2inch section of hair and wrap it around the wand, leaving the ends uncurled (straight).
After leaving your hair on the wand for a few seconds, release the section of hair and immediately tug on the end of the curl to loosen it to the desired wave. This is to prevent super-tight curls.
Re-section your hair, ear to ear across the top of your head, dropping the back over your already waved hair. Continue to curl your hair in the same size sections. Alternate curling the sections in different directions (toward your face, away from your face) to create a messier texture, making your waves look more organic.
Now drop the side sections and continue as before. Leave the front pieces for last. Curl the face-framing sections of hair away from your face for a more flattering wave.
Finish with a texture spray. Beachy waves need a little texture. Spray your roots and strands with a texturizer to finish the look, and then break up your curls with your fingers to tousle your waves. Don’t use a bush or comb.
