Waves and curls, curls, curls. Will we ever have enough? Probably never. I can tell you I adore this beautiful natural trend, which is just playful enough for the summer. So, Cali girls, the ones with golden tan, fair hair and a surfboard under their arm, the ones living practically on the beach, on an eternal vacation. How can we achieve wavy hairstyles like those? There are several ways, but one thing is key‒hair needs to be lush and nourished, it has to shine in good form, so trim any split ends.
Another must is to have the right products on hand. Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray makes the top of the list as it gives your hair that straight-out-of-the-water effect. It’s not the only one, of course, there are many products promising to bring salt-sun-sea to your hair and these are the ones to look for.
It’s best to forget about the blow dryer and straightening iron, not only because it’s time to relax, but because it’s beneficial to give your hair a break from thermal processing, which can harm your hair, so it’s good to give them some time off. Large curlers on damp hair are a good alternative, just like braids (or a single one) are to get those soft waves we so like. You can also twist your hair up in small buns and wait for it to dry before setting them free. This will last a shorter amount of time, if your hair is thick, so repeat when necessary.
There are three styling options for your summer hair: a bun, a braid or wearing your hair down. The pleasant sea-side breeze will render rubberbands, hair clips and the rest of hair accessories unnecessary. Don’t forget to apply a mask to nourish your hair and make the curls even softer. A piece of advice for the more lazy‒one I use regularly‒go to bed with damp hair in a braid, which you gently tap with some styling foam to set, then just undo it in the morning. The effect is amazing, every hair stays in its place.
