As 3.4 million people watched the summer of love come to an end last night with bated breath, we couldn’t help but notice Ekin-Su’s beautiful cascading waves as she stood next to her Italian Stallion Davide, nervously anticipating the results of the public vote. The bronzed beauty sparkled in a gold sequin feathered dress, but the greatest accessory of the night was her luscious beachy locks, cascading around her face and forming sleek mermaid waves, creating what has been the hairstyle of the summer.
Not only has this look been spotted on Ekin-Su, but this undone, natural-esque relaxed vibe has been the hottest trend of 2022 amongst the who’s who of Hollywood and afar. Forget traditional curls, this tumbling tousled look has taken the lead with celebrities such as Hailey Bieber, Sofia Richie, Lizzo, Zendaya and Kim Kardashian to name but a few who are incorporating the mermaid wave into their day to day glam, with some even taking it from the beach right to the red carpet. The versatility of this technique means that you can create both an effortless beachy boho vibe as well as a sleek, glamourous look, similar to what we saw at the Love Island finale.
The Spectrum 3-In-1 Waver by Voduz is the one and only tool you need to accomplish this effortless hairstyle with their 32mm barrel being the perfect size to recreate these beachy waves in minutes. The 3 uniquely sized interchangeable tourmaline ceramic barrels in 13mm, 25mm, and 32mm, evenly distribute heat across the hair whilst sealing the cuticles, leaving you with a frizz-free, long-lasting result and allowing you to achieve beach babe hair in an instant, reminiscent of the salty waves after a day on the sandy shores of Majorca.
Simply start by dividing your hair into several sections with the accessory clips, to ensure uniformity throughout your entire head and avoid missing any hard-to-reach strands. Take each section separately and clamp down along the lengths, with the help of the heat protective glove. Continue this section by section until you achieve your own crowning glory, resulting in loose, chic waves à la Ekin Su.
