While we were in L.A. I got to have my hair styled by David Babaii who is the celeb stylist for Kate Hudson, Gweneth Paltrowl, and lots of others!! He did a ton of celebrities hair for the Golden Globes last Sunday and he recreated the beach waves he did on Gweneth that night. I LOVE learning to hair tricks from stylists like David and he taught me the coolest tricks ever, it was like seriously heaven for me getting to watch him and pick his brain! He used a ghd Soft Wand for the beach waves and no product at all so its really easy, there are just a few tricks he does so be sure to watch and see because they are so easy but total game changers!

Ghd is also offering Barefoot Blonde readers 20% off their purchase PLUS a free shine spray and paddle brush with your purchase when you use code ghdBAREFOOTBLONDE ! Which is pretty awesome because their hot tools really are the best, once you try them you really can’t go back to using anything else! (plus their hot tools make this adorable sound when they turn on and it sounds like a magic wand or something haha you will see when you try it 🙂

I wore my beach waves to the beach later that day and David and I were laughing because I got so many compliments on them! Too bad it was so windy and wind always makes curls fall a bit but even with the wind and ocean draft they stayed pretty good. Atticus kept trying to eat the sand and after trying to stop him 10,000,000 times we finally just let him eat it (bad parents haha) but it was too funny to watch because he was just loving it. We have been to the beach with him quite a bit but this was the first time he really played in the sand and it was so cute! He is seriously such a riot. Some days he acts so mature, I don’t even know how to explain it but it will feel like we are just best friends hanging out and thats kind of how that day at the beach felt.

Hope you like the tutorial!!

  1. Love you articles ? I’m trying to buy from GHD and tried to used your code for the 20% off their purchase PLUS a free shine spray and paddle brush – but it didn’t seem to work? Any ideas on how to get this working? I’m going to buy the
    ghd AIR® HAIRDRYER… ? Thanks so much!

  2. Hello I just subscribed today after watching about a hundred of your online tutorials! I’m trying to use the GHD promo code but it doesn’t seem to be working? Thanks xx

  3. I was wondering where you got Atticus’s little orange onesie with the ears on it from? And your hair looks great by the way

  4. OMGosh you are SO PRETTY!!!! Forget those beautiful beachy waves, I wish my FACE could look like yours 🙂

  5. Thanks for your tutorial! Now a new fav! Could you tell me what hair color you use?? It’s stunning!
    Beautiful family! 🙂

  6. I loved this tutorial because I’m always trying to get the perfect beach wave. I really need to order the gdh soft wand! It may be just what I need. I enjoy all of your tutorials. I have been going by your skincare routine that is on your blog for about a month now and I can’t even tell you how many compliments I have gotten about my skin! Thanks for doing all you do

  7. I’m a new subscriber & I totally love your tutorial! I decided to get the ghd & use the code you provided. I got it yesterday & tried it out today. LOVE it!!! (I was disappointed that they didn’t include the free brush or shine spray though, boo!)
    Anyway…thank you so much!!!

  8. I am in love with your hair! Waves are my favorite! I just wish it didn’t take so long or I would do that everyday. Your outfit is adorable too!

  9. Love this tutorial! You and baby Atticus are the cutest! Would love to see a video on your daily makeup routine, you’re always looking flawless!

  10. Was ordering a new straightener today when k saw this post; awesome! But it says your code is not valid?

  11. That photo of Atticus blowing bubbles with sand all around his mouth is hilarious and sooo cute!!! You have a golden child on ya girl!! Love the beach hair tutorial and thanks for sharing the expert tips! XX

  12. Hi Amber. I was wondering if you have naturally straight hair and let it air dry? Or if you blow dry before your tutorials? I have really wavy hair and to get it all smooth I have to straighten it and then it won’t curl. Just wondering if you have any suggestions.

  13. I’m seriously dying over your hair Amber! My desire for thick, luscious braids grows more intense with each of your different hair tutorials! also your LBR (little black romper) is SO freakin cute!

    xoxo hails.

  14. Isn’t crazy how much babies love the sand! We took our mini to Maui at 6 months and really tried hard to not let him eat any, but after a week there it was basically impossible. Needless to say we saw the after effects of sand eating in his diaper. LOL! Poor little guy. He’s almost 2 now and doesn’t try to eat sand anymore so it will wear off. BTW, you look gorg in that romper!!

  15. Awesome tips!! Thanks for sharing☺ love love the otd!! Those chanel loafers…. Do you have the name of them?? Love love!!

    1. I actually dont!! They don’t sell Chanel online anywhere but I got them in the Saks store here in NYC last September!

  16. Great tutorial–just wanted to comment that the actress’ name is spelled Gwyneth Paltrow 🙂

    Otherwise, I always love your content and your outfit posts!

  17. I’ve been reading a few months but this is my first time commenting! Thanks for sharing this tutorial, I just love the beach wave look! Just so you know, I think your youtube link on the right hand side of your page is broken when you click on it, but I think it’s just missing the “h” in the ‘Https”. 🙂

    1. Oh shoot I need to fix that! Thanks for letting me know!! And thank you for your nice comment, glad you liked the tutorial!! xoxox

  18. Hi: I am dying to get the curling wand, but the promo code doesn’t appear to work. Any suggestions?

    1. Oh I am so sorry – it only works for U.S. .. are you outside the US? I am really sorry I forgot to mention that!!!

    1. Oh my heck yes babies are literally the best thing about life!!! I am already baby hungry again hahah. Thanks for your sweet comment!

  19. Thank you so much for this tutorial!! I love watching you actually show us all the tricks you’ve learned! I am so excited to purchase a ghd iron but which one would you recommend that you use the most?


    1. You will love it I prommmmise!!! You would love any, I use all of mine but I use my ghd Soft Wand the most which is the 1 1/4 inch wand!

  20. Hey girl,

    Question about your extensions when you go to the beach/swim. I am assuming you never have them in while actually in the water, right? Kind of a silly question I know. But I am preparing for a cruise next month, I’m in the market for some extensions to feel extra excited about my hair, but I am worried about having them in, and then potentially swimming/other water activities. Do you just leave them behind on those occasions? Take them out? Leave them in and get wet? I am an amateur. I had the beaded row extensions last time I went so it was no problem worrying about getting my hair wet with them. I am more concerned about getting clip-ins. Any advice/experience you have would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, you’re beautiful as always!

    1. Not a silly question at all!! I wear mine in the water! I will just wear maybe two rows instead of all five or I will put my hair in a pony or braid with them. Sometimes I take them out to swim but I also don’t worry if I get them wet! It does damage them slightly to have them in chlorine though 🙂

  21. Ah, this reminds me of the summer time! We won’t see that for a while up here in Canada, but i’m glad to see you guys are having such a good time! I just watched the hair tutorial and I love the look! Great tips throughout the video, too 🙂

    1. Thanks girl!! We have so been wanting to come to Canada so hopefully soon 🙂 xoxo

    1. Aw thanks!! Seriously it is sooo hard to get anything done! We basically just play and snuggle all day!

  22. Thanks for sharing this great video and these adorable pictures of the baby and the family.

    Hope you enjoyed your 3 day weekend! I so needed it.
