Step 1: To start, Mara used L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Txt It Tousle Wave Spray ($4.99) and sprayed it all over Cara’s hair. Made with sea salt, L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Txt It Tousle Wave Spray is perfect giving hair the perfect texture for creating beachy waves.
Step 2: Using a curing rod, Mara next created curls by curling Cara’s hair in sections at a horizontal angle. By creating curls in a horizontal angles it helps to create a natural wave effect in the hair. If you don’t happen to have a curling iron. There’s no need to go out and purchase one. You can create the same look with a flat iron.
Step 3: Combine both L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray ($4.99) and Blow Dry It Longwear Spray ($4.99) into your hands and work it in to the hair from the roots into the body. Doing this will give the hair much wanted volume and dry texture.
Step 4: Next, Mara pull back part of the hair in a graceful manner (so as to prevent any harsh lines or a severe look) and begin to create a low braid that started about one inch below the nape of the neck. Allow a few strands of the hair to fall towards the front of the face. Secure the braid with a clear elastic hairband and then wrap a strand of hair around the base to hide the hairband and give the braid a seamless finish.
Step 5: To finish off the look, Mara locked in the look by using L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray ($14.99); and misting it all over the hair for added shine and spritz. Lastly, Mara used L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss High-Shine Glossing Mist ($6.99) on strands of Cara’s hair for a glossy finish.
