What to look for: classic beach waves
Identifying whether or not you have the 2b hair type is the best place to start. First off, do you have wavy hair? Congratulations, you have type 2 hair! We look at the wave patterns to determine what specific type you have. 2b wavy hair has a defined S-shape to the pattern, which doesn’t start right at the scalp. Have you been told you have perfect beach waves? If so, you probably have 2b hair. This hair texture splits the difference between curly and straight, a perfect midway point. It’s medium wavy hair that takes a little bit of effort to straighten and probably frizzes when you don’t want it to.
