Quite possibly the easiest path to beachy waves ever
The beachy-wave hair trend shows no signs of waning, and although my hair is nowhere near being long enough to participate, I’m always on the hunt for new ways to achieve this sought-after style. My goal is to find tools that minimize the effort it takes to get the effortless vibe, and my latest discovery is called CharlieCurls.
Essentially a cushiony strip of super-soft fabric that snaps together at the ends, the beauty of this tool is that it takes only a few steps—and none of them include sectioning or heat-styling your hair. It’s as easy as slipping damp hair into in the oval you create by twisting the CharlieCurl, pulling it flat and down to the ends, rolling it up toward your head and securing it into a bun. After a few hours (or overnight), just unroll the CharlieCurl and voila… Beachy waves are yours! The looseness (or tightness) of your waves depends on how much you twist the CharlieCurl, and the website features how-to videos about the results you get when you place your final “bun” in different spots (i.e. low bun, high bun or “unicorn” bun).
Each CharlieCurl costs a mere $25 (significantly less than one blowout) and you can also get a pack of three for $65.99 and share your secret with your friends—only if you like them enough to help them strengthen their hair game.
