On runways, red carpets and street style, relaxed and beachy waves have been prevailing for quite some time now, and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere.

For you, the beach wave is easy to show a client how to do and provides at least a couple retail opportunities (hello, sea salt spray from every brand, ever).
