Proof That Beach Waves Were Made For Shoulder-Length Hair
The Plenty-of-Hold Wave
Let’s get one thing straight: Sometimes you need a little extra hold, and that doesn’t make your waves any less beachy. A quick coat of hairspray helps maintain the thickness throughout the mid section of this shoulder-skimming cut.
The Retro Wispy Wave
Lots of layering and face-framing pieces achieve a soft, feminine style. We love the shag-like feel that keeps those bottom strands slightly wispy, giving an almost ethereal look.
The Long Short Wave
Is it long or is it short? That’s the question with this style. Honestly, we’ll let our stylist figure those details out when we show up at our next appointment with this photo in hand. Oh, and that deep side part is absolutely essential.
The Fine Tousled Wave
Fine hair deserves perfectly imperfect waves too—and this stylist nailed it. We love the gentle halo-type highlights that keep the roots slightly darker, taking this low-maintenance look to the next level.
The S-Shaped Wave
It seems they’re calling this vanilla blonde, but we think it’s pulling more silver—which just so happens to be our current color crush. The slight s-shaped wave gives just a bit of movement to this collar-bone-skimming cut.
The Party In The Back Wave
We are so here for a look that isn’t one-dimensional. Side-swept bangs, caramel highlights, and a stacked lob are perfection.
The Barely There Wave
Is it a wave or just a ridiculously chic hair-tie kink? You be the judge. Whatever the method, just a hint of wave gives these shoulder-length platinum strands a little something extra. Opt for a side part to keep things fresh.
The Thick Blunt Wave
Auburn hair with a nice lift at the crown and lush thickness throughout proves to be the perfect canvas for beach waves. A quick spritz of light-hold hairspray is all that’s needed to keep this style in tact.
