Insta-Makeover: Beach Waves, Minus The Beach


Summer in NYC can get hot and sticky pretty quickly. And, one consistent yuck factor is all those bad hair days, thanks to the oppressive humidity. But while your mop can be covered up easily with a chic summer topper, we've got a new alternative that doesn't require accessories, just a (tiny) bit of time in the morning, and the right tool.
Watch as we show you how to get so-easy beach waves without a jaunt on the Jitney. With the help of Aveda and this super-quick video, you're bound to look like you just stepped off a yacht — not the F train.
See our hair how-to and whip up chic, beachy waves in just a few minutes, and then check our beauty video hub for more awesome insta-makeovers.
