Those aren't really wavy but you can use a wand something bigger than an itch and do a quick wave like that it looks beautiful!

I saw a tutorial a few weeks ago but can't remember who did it, basically they used a large barrel tong but didn't wind down to the ends and big sections, left about an inch out at the end, tried it on mine and a few clients to get that beachy effect and it worked quite well

Like they said if you get a barrel big enough you literally can't get a curl just those beach waves your looking for!

I watched a vid somewhere. And they said, using straighteners, to like curl the middle section and flash curl the end. Really quick. So the movement is in the middle.

I have a feeling it could have been Sam Villa.

What about that technique where you put the straightner in and pull as if you were going to curl then stop and twist it the other way and pull again, it creates more of a beachy wave, if it's too curly brush the life out of it

I style hair like this often! I'll try and put together a how to video this coming week on one of my clients and send it your way :) The video won't be any by any means. And it can be done with both a flat iron or a marcel iron. Jennifer Lawrence's is done with a flat iron, the other one is done with a curling iron. To be continued! :D

I do it like this:
curling iron.
leave the tails out.
alternate directions of the curls.
finish with dry shampoo and the very ends some sea salt spray. Less is more

i managed to create this look all by accident! hehe i 100% assure you!:D i brought the diva beach wand, taken it with me on a night out- have one drink was being rushed to leave and well i felt a bit meh i cant be bothered to section properly. I got a lovely beach tousled look without even trying. definalty not a salon worthy look but closest to your picture. i now know if i take it ill be ready in mins, plus i always get complimented on it! (please not as a warning the wand is looking a bit....:eek: conversational starter hehe;)) xoxo

Although that product will give you the natural "roughness" in texture, it won't help you actually achieve the wave. Use the technique in my video post above, let the waves cool off, and then finish it with that Schwarzkopf Dust It product and you will have what you need!
