How Can I Get Beyonce's Waves?

How Can I Get Beyonce's Waves?

Hi Hair Doctors,

My hair is long and quite fine, well not really fine, but it’s not thick – am I making sense? Anyway, if I leave it to dry naturally it has a slight kink to it, which I hate, as it’s not a nice kink! I would love to have the type of curls that Beyonce has in the Coldplay video – I have attached a picture.

My question is how I would achieve this style and this type of curl? They’re very relaxed and beach-like, which I love.

Thanks for your time,

Caroline, Somerset

Hi Caroline,

There are many ways to create beachy waves like Beyonce in the image provided. The easiest way to achieve this look would be with a wave barrel taking small sections, leaving the ends (around an inch or 2) straight. Repeat this until you’ve completed your whole head. Allow your hair to cool down for a minute and then use some texture spray to break up the waves to give you more of a messy, lived-in look.

Thanks, Naomi
