BEAUTY BAR: This Heat Is a Beach

It’s almost mid-July, you turn on the television to the weather channel as you’re getting dressed, and there it is again. The meteorologist just predicted yet another scotching heatwave for this week’s forecast. Aw great, now you have to figure out exactly what to do to your hair to avoid it from looking like the before shot of a Pantene commercial. There’s no way you can let that happen again!  Not to worry, you can turn that hair-don’t into a hair-do with beach waves. With its easy application and effortless look, this hairstyle will have you making the heat your beach in no time.

Deciding what to do with your hair during the summer can be extremely difficult. It may seem much easier to resort to rocking the ever so classic ponytail and bun look since applying heat to your hair may be a bit redundant with the humidity not being in your hair’s favor. However, this Fashionista makes the best out of a sticky situation by channeling a cool Hampton’s vibe with her effortless wavy hair-do and her killer linen jumper. Before you start to think of excuses as to why this will not work for your hair, know that this style is very simple to obtain. The Fashionista achieved this look by separating her hair into sections with a wide-tooth comb to avoid tangling her hair. Before braiding the hair, sprays each section of hair with a water bottle so that it is lightly dampened. After the hair is braided, apply a quarter size amount of mousse to your hair and let it sit overnight. Unravel each braid and watch yourself turn into instant beach babe.

This look is not only easy to obtain, but it is also very simple to maintain. Loose waves are perfect for the summer because loose waves require very little heat- if any at all. With loose waves you’ll never have to worry about frizzy hair because it simply adds volume to your wave pattern. Plus, if the frizz really gets bad, you can always use a water bottle to spritz it back into shape. So what are you waiting for? Bring the cool, effortless vibes of the beach to you by rocking loose waves.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To successfully complete this look, you will need a wide-tooth comb, water bottle and a holding spray.  The holding spray is very essential to mastering the style because it maintains the wavy texture. So if your hair is very thick, you should consider applying a heavy duty holding spray.
