Over the past few years, the tousled beach wave look has proven to be much more than a passing trend. It’s a hairstyle with staying power, possibly on its way to iconic status. Inspired by that perfectly mussed-up state our salt-infused hair gets in after a day at the beach, the look is seemingly unfussy, effortlessly chic.

Luckily, there are experts who can guide us on our way — and great products to use. Here, Lizzy Weinberg, New York-based stylist at Pas de Deux Salon, tells you exactly how to get beachy waves whether your hair is stick-straight, super-curly, or anything in-between.
