Beachy Keen: How to Achieve Waves with Defined Texture


McKenzie Tetrault is a sunkissed-hair guru. She often shares her tips to achieving the ultimate beach waves, which includes turning to Sexy Hair's Texture Collection. Feautirng a range of hold and touchable texture, the collection includes five products with buildability and humidity protection. 

"You can tell this line is going to be a big hit during all months of the year,” Tetrault says. “The entire line is what everyone who can’t spend a day at the beach needs. The beachy results, the sandy feeling of the packaging and the tropical smell will create the textured hair of your client’s dreams.”

The line includes a styling shampoo, a texturizing foam, a texturizing beach spray, a dry texturizing spray and a finishing hairspray.  The shampoo is designed to maintain hair’s natural shine while adding texture. The brand recommends using it without a conditioner.

For shine that lasts all night, Tetreault turns to the brand's Party Lite Texturizing Foam. It helps to give texture on wet or dry hair. With a texture level of 8, the Surfer Girl Dry Texturizing Spray has the highest level of the range.

"The foam gives light touchable texture that can be used on wet or dry hair,” she says. “Plus it’s easily buildable.”

In this video, Tetrault demos how to achieve the ultimate beachy look:


"The best way to create the beachy waves seen in this video is to start with Texture Sexy Hair Clean Wave Texturizing styling shampoo," she says. "The shampoo gives a really nice foundation to work off of because the strands aren’t too soft; they have added texture for hold but with added shine. I love to use a smaller iron usually between 1/2-3/4 inch to give a more pieced out wave look. My goal when curling is to take larger sections with the smaller iron so that way when the curls are pulled apart, they have a more natural flow. After pulling my curls apart, I go in with Texture Sexy Hair Surfer Girl Dry Texturizing Spray on individual strands to create more variation."
