This was a difficult challenge for me because I live in Oklahoma where it is currently 40 degrees so it was hard to imagine beach waves and colorful flowers. Sorry, no beach waves, or colorful flowers for me. So I had to think of a way to demonstrate waves and flowers in my hair. The style I came up with is a slicked back bun, where the bun is shaped into a flower. The beach waves would be the waves that kinky hair makes when slicked back, and the flower would be the multi-layered bun.
How to achieve this style:
- Shampoo and condition hair with going-natural’s herbal almond shampoo and No More Knots
- Pull hair back into a side bun with a ponytail holder
- Take medium sized sections of the ‘tail’, fold it over, and tuck under the holder as flower petals.
- Take the last section of hair and do straw coils on it to resemble the stamens of a flower
Unfortunately, because of the darkness of my hair, the flower does not show in the pictures. But I assure you it makes a lovely style.

To keep your waves from getting fluffy, use a scarf to hold them down for a few minutes.
I wish Oklahoma had blue skies, ocean, and coconut trees…
