BEAUTY BAR: Lustrous Locks

Curls, waves, and braids can really add the finishing touch to a flirty and feminine outfit.  However, having silky, luxe locks feels impossible given Atlanta’s humidity in the spring and summertime. This Fashionista decided to brave the heat and put her favorite hair product, Ouai Wave Mist, to the test in order to complete her fun, polka dot ensemble.

Loose curls are the perfect way to make an outfit look more polished for work, date night, or getting weekend brunch with friends. The best part? The look only takes a few minutes to create, but still looks Instagram-ready. In order to get this Fashionista’s locks, spray your hair with the wave mist of your choice, then curl it with an iron in two inch sections. Make sure to focus your big, loose curls at the halfway point of your hair—too close to the roots will add more volume then you would want for this look.  When you are finished styling your hair, make sure to set it with a hairspray to ensure they’ll keep all day long.

If you notice your curls losing volume towards the end of the day, make sure to follow this Fashionista’s pro tip to spruce them up again: Pinch the bottom tip of your curl with two fingers, then use your other hand to glide the curl back up towards your roots.  It’s a similar motion to curling a piece of ribbon with scissors, only you are curling your hair with your fingers. This trick is perfect for remaining fab on the go!
