Remember when Cat showed you how to get grungy-beachy hair that’ll make surfer boys wanna make out with you? Well, I do and it was sexy and natural, but maybe a bit too natural since she got her gorgeous waves on a real live beach partying beside some chic bonfire.

I happen to hate the beach, particularly the swimwear/laying out aspect, and side-stepped the whole thing this summer by staying in New York City while my friends evacuated to the seaside each weekend. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want beachy hair! And the thing about messy, ropey beach waves is that they’re equally seductive once summer ends and temperatures dip.

Think Beyonce on a yacht meets Mary-Kate Olsen in Paris. Wind-swept, matte, loose waves that say, “I used to be a mermaid, but now I live in the city.” Drop-dead sexy, right?

It’s easy to look like you’ve just spent the evening splashing around in the ocean with a cute surfer boy this fall with these easy step-by-step tips. All you need is a slim flat-iron -- I love Amika's -- and some surf spray. Go with the classic Bumble and Bumble variety.
