The type of extension that you choose is critical, and you’ll want to make sure that you know which extensions styles can have beach waves and which ones cannot. When purchasing extensions, you can get some that already have beach waves.

An example would be “Brazilian” deep wave, or “Indian” deep wave. These two styles can give you beach waves without needing anything except mousse and some leave-in conditioner.

You can also use straight extensions to get this look. Any length can work, but for the best results, you’ll need something that is shoulder length.
