When you think about Drew Barrymore right after E.T, Charlie’s Angels and Never Been Kissed, you probably immediately think about those beachy waves.
The actress, and self-confessed beauty junkie, is rarely seen not sporting the hairstyle she has become synonymous with: effortless, blonde waves that look like she’s just after spending a day at the beach in Santa Barbara.
It’s the kind of look we have on so many occasions and failed to emulate – how does Drew get those curls looking so perfectly formed while we end up with a frizzy mess of a mane?
Well Drew has let us in on her hair hack on Instagram and you won’t see this one coming. She uses a facial spray.
Forgoing a sea salt spray – the ones that are marketed to give us this look, but usually just make our hair feel dirty and stiff – Barrymore opts instead for Evian’s Brumisateur Facial Spray.
In her post, she credits the spray for having a “perfect atomizer that distributes perfectly for waves and curls. Almost like the diffuser on your hair dryer. It can give the hair gentle beachy waves when minimally sprayed on dry hair. And then walk away! Just let it do its thing.”
A spritz of the sprat will separate your strands and give it a soft texture, but if you want more of a boost Drew recommends spraying lots in and then scrunching the hair with your hands or drying it with a diffuser for a “kinky fun curl.”

#beautyjunkieweek OK I know this says it’s for the face, but I use it on hair. It literally has that perfect atomizer that distributes perfectly for waves and curls. Almost like the diffuser on your hair dryer. It can give the hair gentle beachy waves when minimally sprayed on dry hair. And then walk away! Just let it do it’s thing. It will softly separate your stands and give a mild texture. OR you can go to town. Spray a bunch in and scrunch the hair with your hands or dry with a diffuser for lots of kinky fun curl. I also use it on my daughters when they wake up with “fairy hair”. It is gentle and doesn’t leave it heavy or gummy like detanglers can. It’s great for my girls with the wet brush or a mason Pierson type of bristle. I don’t know about you, but my kids are not physched about hair brushing. It’s more like crawling into a Lions den. So thank you Evian! I can do what I need to do with me and myself and the girls thanks to you. I bet you are dope on the face too! @flowerbeauty @ultabeauty @walmart
The spray usually costs about €4.95 in pharmacies and you can pick it up for as little as €4 online.
