1. Apply a volumizer, such as AVEDA Phomollient™, to hair and blow dry using a large round brush. For added volume over-direct hair to the opposite side you want it to lay.

2. Make a deep side part.

3. Place a hair clip around ear length to create a visual guide for where to stop curling.

4. Pre heat your wand or curling iron.

5. Take 2″ sections of hair and wrap it around the barrel, away from your face, starting with the hair just below the ear working your way towards the ends. Hold for about 30 seconds.

6. Once your curls have cooled, you can either run your fingers through them for a more beachy feel, or lightly run a boar bristle brush through for a softer look.

7. Make it shine! Gently apply a product, such as AVEDA Brilliant™ Anti-Humectant Pomade or Spray-on Shine, to your waves.
