Faux crimp/beach wave: Braid hair in sections. Make sure you've put some heat protector in your hair and depending on how well your hair behaves maybe some mouse. Cover braids in tinfoil. Flat iron the braids from top to bottom for 30 seconds or more (depending on the definition you want). Similar effect to leaving braids in wet hair till try but I found my hair was much softer and smoother doing this, than leaving in braids.
