We asked celebrity hairstylist Anthony Nader from RAW Anthony Nader in Sydney's Surry Hills to find out how to create the perfect beachy waves…
Step 1: Coat damp strands with a volumising or texturising spray (Nader recommends Oribe Volumitsa Mist For Volume, $58; 1300 725 122) and rake it through your hair with your hands. "Let your part line fall naturally into place, then divide the hair into two sections," says Nader. Use a tail comb to separate it horizontally and clip the top section up.
Step 2: Working in five- to eight-centimetre sections, tightly twist hair from root to tip in a clockwise direction away from your face. Unclip the top sections and repeat the same technique. If you have fine hair, Nader says to avoid twisting the hair too tightly as you'll get a dreadlock-like effect.
Step 3: Using your hairdryer's diffuser (to prevent your hair from blowing out of control and becoming unmanageable), blow-dry in a circular motion until your locks are 90 per cent dry.
Step 4: "To give it a more beach-like effect, use your fingers to split each twist in half," says Nader. Finally, for a messy, tousled look, give your strands a once-over with sea-salt spray (we love John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Sea-Salt Spray, $17; 1800 468 318).
