Beachy waves are a go-to style for many of the Love Island girls. Whether it’s to make a statement during challenges or when cosying up for chats around the fire pit, the loose style makes as much of a statement as their bikinis are. Luckily for us at home it couldn’t be easier to copy the style themselves, particularly when the exact curling tong they use to achieve the look is available at Boots – and costs just £16.

The Mark Hill Pick 'N' Mix Easy Tong Barrel, £16.99 here, is available to buy at the beauty retailer for a very budget-friendly price, and it's also incredibly easy to use.

The Mark Hill Pick 'N' Mix range lets you customise your curling kit

The tong barrel is designed so that, even if you’re a total beginner, you can get the Love Island look. Reaching a temperature of 185ºC, the barrel simply attaches to the Mark Hill handle, £24.99 here, so you can easily change up the size of your curls.

The Pick ‘N’ Mix Range from Mark Hill is designed to give you plenty of options when it comes to styling your hair, and means you can build up your toolkit over time rather than having to splash out on all the attachments in one go. It also allows you to customise your kit, so you can get the attachments you know you’ll love without wasting money on barrels you’ll never use.

The Easy Tong Barrel is the easiest attachment to use, as there are two simple techniques to achieve the Love Islanders effortless waves. You can either press and hold the lever to open the clamp, then wrap your hair full around the barrel before releasing the lever to secure it, or you can clamp the tip of your hair in the level, then twist the tong to wrap the hair around the rest of it.

Boots is also currently running a three for two offer on all Mark Hill products, so you can start building the perfect curl kit.

Samie and Lana show off their styling skills

If you want to see exactly how the Love Island girls style their hair, you can watch Samie and Lana take part in Boots’ Hair Hero challenge on YouTube, where they share their hair secrets and try out some new products which are all available at the beauty retailer.

In the video, Samie also tries out the Shark Flexstyle 5-in-1 Air Styler & Hair Dryer, £299.99 here, to give Lana one her favourite looks: effortless beachy waves. The Shark Flexstyle is touted as a "dupe" for Dyson's styler, but costs the user much less.

Now there’s no excuse to not have flawless curls at every opportunity!
