I think I’ve mentioned it a time or two that I’m not really a “hair” person — and by that I mean, I can’t do much to my hair. I just wasn’t blessed with the talent of being able to fix my hair in super cute hairstyles, so I usually stick to curls or straight hair.

My hair has no grit to it, it’s straight with no volume and I have a lot of hair so it weighs down pretty easily. And one hairstyle that I love seeing on others are messy beachy waves — so I finally found a super easy way to achieve this look with a flat iron!

For this hairstyle, I usually like to have dirty hair, in order to have a bit more texture to it. And I go in with my ghd Amber Sunrise Styler — which came into my life at the perfect time. I was in need of an upgrade and I am loving this flat iron so far. It glides like a dream and it heats in up seconds, y’all, SO fast! It’s quite techy too, it beeps once you turn it on and it signals you again with a little beep once it’s fully hot. Oh and best of all, it has an automatic shut off after 30 minutes of non-use. All the praise hands! I am the worst when it comes to forgetting to turn off my flat iron — I’m surprised I haven’t burned something.

Okay, back to the waves, since I have a lot of hair, I like to work in sections — about 4. I start by gliding the iron down a 1″ section of hair, and instead of straightening my hair, I turn the styler inward and outward while working my way down. At first, it’s a little tedious but once you get into the groove of things, it’s really simple. Just remember to glide in and then out, all the way to the bottom.

I finish off my hair with some texturizing spray (just a bit) to give it a piecier look and that’s about it. I have slept with these waves and just touched them up the next day and they look just as good, if not better. 

Oh, before I forget, the ghd styler also comes with this really nice heat resistant bag — perfect when traveling!
