How To: Beachy Waves For Fine Hair + My Favorite Hair Products

Beauty, Hair

July 31, 2018

Happy Tuesday, friends! My Beach Waves tutorial for fine hair is here! This post has been by far THE most requested blog post and it’s only taken me a year to get it done. What can I say? I aim to please.

I had fun making this video and I think I miiiiight be getting the hang of the whole YouTube thing. (I know I sound ancient. It’s not like YouTube is new.) It’s so awkward to talk to myself while I’m doing my hair, not to mention watch the video over and over again while I edited it. Eeek. So weird. 

I’m sharing all of the products I used and more of my favorites at the bottom of the post.

I hope you guys enjoy it! I’ll be doing more videos, so stay tuned…

  1. Love seeing/hearing your voice instead of pictures. Thanks for the tutorial! How often do you curl your hair?

      You’re so sweet! Thank you. It depends how many times I wash it! Ha. Most days it’s back in a low bun – I’d say it’s a good week if I curl it twice 🙂

  2. maria says:

    Lol! I feel the same way about the “shelf!”

  3. Liz says:

    So good!! I have the exact same hair, fine but a lot of it. Very good tips, thank you!!

    • suzanne says:

      Thank you for stopping by, Liz! It’s taken me awhile to figure out how to manage my hair, but I think I’ve got it! 🙂

  4. Tina says:

    Hi! I know this is sooooo old, but I just came across it. The link is broken for the Apothocare Essentials – can you tell me which products they are? The print on the bottle (in the pic) is to too small to see 🙂 Thank you!

    • suzanne says:

      Hi Tina! Sure – I use and love the ApotheCARE Essentials Moisturizing Cleansing Shampoo + Conditioner- Vanilla, Argan Oil, Sweet Almond. Here’s a link to them both: https://amzn.to/2Z7ewd3
      Thanks for stopping by! xo

    Just leaving this here to say how happy I am as a first time mum to have found my spirit animal for hair and beauty! You are a fabulous!

  6. Helen says:

    This was one of the best tutorials I have seen for hair especially fine hair! I love how simple and not time consuming! Life saver ❣️

  7. Sina says:

    This is great, thanks for doing that video! I have fine hair and I’m trying so hard to find a way to curl my hair without it taking 30 minutes. You said in the video you thought your iron was 1 1/2 inches, but mine is and it looks bigger. Is it maybe 1 1/4?

  8. Kaylin says:

    Thanks for doing the tutorial, I have fine hair and this really helps! Also, could you tell me what shirt you are wearing in the video? It’s super cute!

  9. Regina says:

    What type of hair spray do you use that leaves it flexible but still has a hold. I have a full head of fine hair and when I use hair spray on it in the morning towards the end of the day it’s bulky and just yuck!

  10. aj says:

    Thank you so much for this video! I’m a lazy mom too, your instructions are so good- from all the tutorials I’ve watched, I feel like I can maybe fix my new hairstyle ?
    Thank you!!
