I know most women want sexy, bouncy and effortless curls. But we all know that curling our hair isn’t that effortless at all. Especially if you have long hair, it can take hours! The heat isn’t good for our locks either. Say it with me, damage! Whether you just want to save yourself some time and energy or you’re trying to grow healthy hair and avoid the heat, try out these 10 different ways to do heatless curls and beachy waves. I know some of these techniques look bizarre, but the results are flawless!
1. Braid Curls
Braids are awesome if you have long or short hair and are super easy to do. Just dampen the hair, braid it, let your hair air dry completely and voila! You really will have fast and effortless beachy waves. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube you can watch if you’re still learning how to braid!
