Beachy waves are our most-wanted summer style, even when we're nowhere near the surf. We enlisted Birchbox staffer Megan to show us how to get this chic tousled style for shorter hair using a clipless curling iron and two great Birchbox hair products. Watch the video to see how she adds volume and texture simply by changing the way she holds the curling iron—and this technique works on short, medium, and long hair!

How to: Beach Waves for Short Hair

1. Tie up the top section of your hair.
2. Prep hair with a heat protectant like Number 4 Thermal Styling Spray.
3. Wrap hair around a wide-barrel curling wand like Sedu's Clipless Iron (a Birchbox fave), alternating directions to give hair a wavier texture.
4. Let down the middle and top sections of your hair, and repeat.
5. For the face-framing sections of hair, take smaller pieces, alternating the direction of the wave.
6. As a final step, spritz your hair with a sea salt spray like Sachajuan Ocean Mist and scrunch your hair to create matte texture.
