#1: Prepare Hair Tools

For this beach waves hair tutorial, you will need the following:

Flower Curl: Prepare the hair curler by leaving two rings attached to the hair donut.

Bobby Pins: The curler comes with a pack of bobby pins.  We will be using these to secure the hair in place.


Hairbrush: We recommend using a detangling brush to remove any tangles before wrapping your hair in the curler. 


Water Spray Bottle: Spritzing some water onto dry hair will help the loose curls to last longer. If you don’t have a water spray bottle, you can pour some water onto a small bowl instead. 

#2: Prep Your Hair

Make sure your hair is completely dry.   Brush your hair thoroughly to remove and tangles and spritz some water on the length of your hair. You only need a little bit of water, so your hair shouldn’t feel wet or damp.  This helps the loose curls to last longer the following day

#3: Twist Back the Front Sections of Your Hair

Grab the front sections of your hair, gently twist back and secure with a couple of bobby pins.

#4: Position the Flower Curl at the lower back of the scalp

Insert your hand through the curler, grab your hair into a low ponytail and position the curler at the lower back of the scalp. Insert a bobby pin through the middle donut, to secure the Flower Curl in place.

#5: Split Hair into Two and Wrap

After you have the curler nicely secured at the back. Divide your hair into two equal sections.  Grab the first section of hair through one of the rings and wrap around it.

#6: Secure the Hair in Place with Bobby Pins or claw clips

Do not wrap the section of hair all the way to the end.  Leave a long-ish tress and insert the first bobby pin.  This helps to keep the hair in place.  Wrap remaining tress and clip the end with a claw clip. You now have a finished hair ring!
