Beach Hair
How to get the perfect beach waves hair:

1. go to the beach
2. dip your head in the ocean.

Summer means long days at the beach, whether you’re a year round local, a weekend warrior, or just a visitor. No matter what, we are all sharing the same surf lineup, and occasionally the same waves. Crowded surf is always a struggle to pros and beginners alike, so it is important to be polite in any situation. Try to keep your cool, even if a beginner cuts you off, or if you are being yelled at for getting in someone’s way.
