Description

Now that the days of summer are fast approaching, it's time to think about trying out some sexy new hairstyles. Here, Ms. Selena Gomez is getting us in the mood for summer with her messy beach wave hair. This is the perfect style for summer days because it's carefree and cute, plus it works just as well at night time while you're out on the town. If you have shoulder-length hair or longer, you can get this look two different ways - choose which end result you desire most.

1. Curling iron - Selena's waves are messy, but you can still see that they have been coiffed carefully using a clip-less curling iron. In case you have never used one, it's basically a metal rod that you hold while twisting your hair around the barrel, leaving the ends out. If you have super- thick hair, this can be time-consuming, but this curling method will give the best results.

2. Braids - the cool thing about Selena's 'do is her pokey ends that give it an edgy feel. If you want less curl and more kink, put several braids in your hair the night before and sleep on it. This will give you a wilder version of Selena's look.

After you have added the waves with your chosen method, separate your hair with your fingers, add some styling wax through the ends and you are ready to rock!

These thick locks are styled into soft waves through the mid-lengths to ends adding movement and shape best suited to frame a round face. This is a simple style that is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and products and will need regular trims every 4-6 weeks to prevent split ends.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Use a Large Radial Brush

Brushlarge

A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

3. Blow-dry the Back Under

Backunder

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

4. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Sidesunder

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

5. Use a Large Curling Iron

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

6. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Midsidecurlingiron

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

7. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Productsendswavy

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

8. Apply Smoothing Shine

Smoothingshinefinishing

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

9. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
