Want to make waves during spring break—in your hair? We know that for the long days and late nights of vacation, you want to look your best with as little effort as possible, leaving more time for lounging by the beach or catching afternoon cocktails with your crew. Find out how to achieve that laid-back vibe without looking like you tried with our easy three-step how-to below:


Start out with freshly washed hair and add a treatment for healthy, shiny locks. Apply 1–2 pumps of Moroccanoil® Treatment or Moroccanoil® Treatment Light to towel-dried hair.


Next, add a wave activating mousse such as Moroccanoil® Beach Wave Mousse. Shake vigorously and dispense a golf ball-sized amount into your palms and emulsify. A little goes a long way! Using your fingertips, rake evenly throughout wet hair from mid-lengths to ends. Now, you are ready to dry. You can put your hair in a loose bun and let it dry naturally, or dry it with a diffuser. Either way, when done you will be left with beautiful waves.


Set and perfect the look by using a medium- or large-barrel curling iron to fix any strays and, voilà! You are ready to hit the town with sexy, beachy waves.
