Video Alert! How To Create Natural Beach Waves with a 1.5” Iron and Wand

Make it look like your guests went to the beach with this technique from Andrew Carruthers, Education Director for Sam Villa. It utilizes the Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron and Wand 1.5” (a curling iron AND wand) to create a mix of loose texture that looks like natural beach waves.

Lived-in waves and curls require a different thought process to break up the monotony that can happen when using a curling iron. Using a 1.5” barrel creates a looser texture and different wrap techniques create the randomness needed for a natural feel,” says Carruthers.

Highlights:
● Proper sectioning for curl direction, design and placement
● Layer products for both protection and hold
● Transform the iron to a wand to create 2 different techniques – mixing the “one and a half wrap” technique with the “wrap and twist” technique creates an organic wave pattern
● Explore wrap direction/angle to get the best possible results
● Wrap longer hair on the extended barrel for added convenience
● Cooling – it can take up to 30 minutes for bonds to completely reform

You want things to feel really random and lived in, in order to achieve a more natural look,” says Carruthers.
