To achieve this look you will need a zig zag hair band and a teasing comb, to give your hair the volume it needs. For the baby hairs, you will need a hard bristled gel brush and your favourite gel to slick down those edges.
Top tip: “If you don’t already own a gel brush, find an old toothbrush and use that instead – but make sure it’s clean before using.” Nick Drewe, Trend Specialists at WeThrift.

To achieve this beach waves inspired look, you do not need to purchase a new hair styling tool, you can use the straighteners or curlers you already have to recreate this. If you want to avoid using too much heat on your hair, simply sleep in damp braids, and to intensify the kinks run a straightener on low heat over the braids.
Top tip: “To simplify this even further, try twisting your hair and running a straighter over it.”
