Beachy waves in 5 easy steps from celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin - or with a couple of products from Victoria's Secret and mark.!

Get the beachy wave look without having to spend the day covered in sand.

Celebrity hairstylist, Jen Atkin - with a client roster that includes Lorde, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Kaley Cuoco and Kim & Khloe Kardashian shared her 5 easy steps for achieving the perfect beachy waves at home:

1. On damp hair, apply mousse (Jen recommends Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice by Leonor Greyl) to add volume and create a product foundation.  Rough dry the hair.
2. Once dry, curl sections with a 1 1/4” curling wand.  Be sure to tug on each section after it’s curled while it's still hot, as this will relax each curl.
3. Next, use a flat iron to add a bend to the roots and smooth over the ends to soften.
4. Then, liberally apply a texturizing spray (Jen recommends Oribe Dry Texturing Spray).  This will up the volume with just the right amount of gritty texture.
5. Replicate that wind-whipped hair by piecing out the ends with a wax (Jen recommends Osmo Clay Wax).
Of course the best way to learn all the tricks and tips is directly from the pro herself and we were excited to learn that Jen will be in Toronto to teach a one-day, hands on hairstyling workshop on July 31st - e-mail workshops@beautycharisma.com for more details or to reserve your spot!
