Holiday Hair Inspiration: Effortless Beachy Waves

Photos by Russie Denay

During the holiday's it can be confusing how to wear your hair to all of the events taking place! One hairstyle I've found that I can transition from work to an after party, to beyond - are the perfect, easy beachy waves. I use the Nume 25mm curling wand to do my hair whenever I want to recreate these easy beachy waves. 

Since the beachy waves can be a little messy, they don't always have to be perfect. I will be doing a tutorial at some point on the blog with a step by step how to use the NuMe hair wand. Since it's not a curling iron, there is no clasp to hold your hair around the wand, you have to wrap the hair yourself and hold it until its hot. All NuMe wands come with a protectant glove to safeguard against burns since the tool gets so incredibly hot - over 400 degrees F. 

To instantly glam up any holiday beachy-wave look, I added this Stila long wear lip stain in "Beso," it's my absolute favorite red lip color that I've tried so far. It's a lip stain, so it tends to dry out your lips a little bit if used alone, without an additional gloss on top to amplify the look. 

This holiday oversized sweater is a great addition for a holiday party. Although it's not the traditional holiday colors of green, red or even white - its gold thread weaved throughout makes it look shiny and gleams under proper lighting. I don't remember where I got this one, but I've linked to some similar styles below, in addition to the hair products I used to create this holiday look.
