Four Easy Steps
1: Prep wet hair with Philip B. Maui Wowie Beach Mist and Shu Uemura Art of Hair Silk Mesh Elastic Moldable Cream before blow-drying using a diffuser attachment.
2: Enhance beachy waves by wrapping random pieces around a 12 in. curling iron.
3: Pin hair to the side and braid three strands into a fishtail, keeping the look loose and messy.
4: For allover shine, apply Shu Uemura Art of Hair Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray.
