Secrets to Year-Round "Beach" Hair
Summer is coming to an end, but beach hair is still riding high on the wave of style! Hold on to this sexy style all year long, it's as easy as a day at the beach.
To transition this look from beach into fall fashion think "polished." This sexy look for the beach was tousled and wind blown. For fall, it gets all dressed up with ultra shine and a little refinement. This is how I styled both Jessica Simpson and Paulina Rubio for the Latin Grammy Awards.
Work With Your Hair…
…Not against it! Depending on your hair type, you can easily achieve amazing beach hair all year long.
For fine to medium texture hair that is straight to loosely wavy:
For thick, curly or coarse hair:
For those who dare to surf into more adventurous territory, try setting your hair into braids before bed for a true beach look. For fine hair apply a conditioning mousse and for thick hair apply a relaxing balm to your towel dried hair. Remember always comb your product through for even distribution. For a more modern look, I recommend starting your braids two inches from your scalp. Also, larger braids will produce looser wave and smaller braids will result in a crimped look. When you wake up unbraid your dry hair and loosen your waves by finger styling with a lightweight greaseless shine serum.
Air Dry for Healthy Hair
I truly believe that the basis of any great hairstyle begins with healthy hair. Allowing your hair to dry naturally overnight eliminates all of the damage from blow drying and will keep your fall locks in super shiny easy-to-manage shape! Touching this style up in the morning only requires minutes. I recommend getting 2-3 days' wear out of this style. The style lasts longer as a result of the wet set and leaves you with more time to enjoy your day.
Tailor this look to suit your taste. After all, your hairstyle is only an accessory to the inner beauty within you!
