Get the Look: Lauren and Jojo's Finale Beachwaves

I think something we can all agree on is that both Jojo and Lauren looked stunning at the finale of the Bachelor. Both had loose, gorgeous beachwaves that complimented their beautiful dresses. Check out this quick step by step tutorial on how to recreate their look:

1) Separate hair and pull both sides forward. Using a Darby clip, section hair so the lower part is down, and clip the rest up.

2) Using the Beachwaver S1, grab a 1-2" section of hair and clamp hair leaving a few inches out on the end. Continue until you have finished all of your hair.

3) Once all the curls cool, use a nylon-boar bristle brush and a flexible hold hairspray. Spray the hairspray directly on the brush and brush through the curls. By spraying the hairspray onto the brush and then brushing, it helps to evenly distribute the hairspray to the waves.
