Beach Waves with a Curling Iron

I am embarrassed to say that years ago, when I was on a little show called RHONY, I wouldn’t go to any event without getting my hair done! That’s right…I would get up early, and have someone come over for a quick (and expensive ) beach wave blowout. Well, I am proud to say with a little practice and a lot of trial and error I finally learned to style my own hair with beach waves!

1-Step Salon Styler

This 1-step hair dryer and styler is something I had to try for myself! Anything that makes hairstyling easier is worth a try in my book. Now that my hair is a bit longer, it is easier for me to style it out on my own. Ok, so full disclosure, I have very fine hair. Even with fine hair, it took me awhile to dry my hair fully with the 1-step dryer. However, once it was dry, my hair looked smooth and had a salon-finished boost!

So, my suggestion is to use hair thickening spray at the root to add some volume. I would suggest rough drying your hair with a regular blow dryer and then go over your semi-dry hair with this salon styler for a coiffed, just out of the salon bouncy blow out!
