Quick Beach Waves Tutorial

One of the most asked questions I receive on Instagram is which curling tong I use, and how I curl my hair. I love having my hair curly and have done for years! For some reason, I just find styling my hair straight doesn’t suit me and doesn’t make me feel as confident. It’s probably because I have naturally straight hair, and it’s always the way that you want the opposite to what you have!

I was over the moon when GHD got in touch a few months ago and asked if I wanted to try their tongs. Of course I said yes because I love discovering and trying new products for my hair. I’ve been using this particular tong for around 2 months now, and I haven’t looked back!

What I love most about the tongs is how many different types of curls you can achieve by simply changing the way you position the hair. You can use the twist method (as shown in my video below) for beach waves or smoothing the hair flat against the way for more of a classic look. It does take a few practices to get the hang of using the tong, but after a few goes, I can now do it without even looking! For inspiration on different hairstyles you can create, click here!

I decided to film a tutorial to show you just how quick and easy it is for me to achieve these everyday beachy waves. This is my go-to hairstyle most days as it only takes me around 10 minutes in total.
