SOFT BEACH WAVES: NUME CURLING WAND
As a proud owner of this hair tool myself, I can definitely attest to the fact that NuMe’s Clampless Curling Wand ($135.00) is the bomb at creating effortless, natural-looking beach waves. The wand comes with a heat resistant glove to help prevent you from burning your hand, and also utilizes their special negative ion technology to help minimize static and frizz, and give you that long-lasting look minus the damage of conventional curling irons. For soft waves like Blake Lively or Kate Hudson, choose a medium to smaller sized wand and wrap 2-inch sections of hair around the barrel.

Just clip in the end of your hair and twist, it’s as simple as that. You’ll get sexy, sassy, no-fuss spiral curls in no time.
