First, shower the night before and wait until your hair is 75-85 percent dry. It just has a little bit of dampness to the touch. If your in a rush to hit the hay, you can speed up the process by roughly blow drying your hair on low heat.
Next, french braid your hair. Now, it doesn't have to be perfect and you don't need to be a pro. I actually just learned how to do it myself and I tough myself through watching youtube videos. Oh, what can't technology teach us? hehe
Then in the morning I take out my hair, flip it over and scrunch in a little bit of mouse, then spritz it with a medium-strong hold hairspray. This is the end result. Please excuse the sketchy mirror photos. My BF wasn't hear to take it for me.
If you want to add a bit more definition you can take a curling iron and curl a few random pieces. I didn't hear because I wanted a natural, beachy look. Let me know what you guys think. :)
