How I Get Sexy, Beachy Hair in 6 Simple Steps

Here's the break down:
Step 1: Apply a volumizing gel or spray to wet hair (Try Shu Uemura The Art of Hair Tasai Cream, $33.
Step 2: To add volume at your roots, flip your head over and blow dry completely.
Step 3: To smooth hair before using your curling iron, twist large sections of your hair around a finger starting at the ends. Let the twisted pieces rest for a few minutes.
Step 4: Separate your hair into four sections and spritz a light hold hairspray (try Oribe Soft Lacquer, $42) on the mid-shaft of your hair (avoid roots and ends).
Step 5: Using a 1 - 1 1/4-inch curling iron, wrap medium sections of hair around the barrel, starting roughly three inches from the roots (at about eye level). Note: Be sure to stay away from curling your ends -- you want them to be straight.
Step 6: Once you're finished curling your whole head, spritz with hairspray and lightly scrunch with your hands.
