Bringing the Beach to the Country

Bringing the Beach to the Country

For some of us who live in the Midwest, it is sometimes necessary to bring a little beach to the countryside. This may mean it’s time to switch out those ball caps and ponytails for a new quick and easy hairstyle, or trade in a T-shirt and jean shorts for a floral maxi dress. Bringing the beach to the Midwest is not as difficult as it may seem. It can actually be easy and effortless. Now that summer is in full swing, it is time to touch base with some of the hottest summer trends to create a great look.

One trend that seems to never go out of style is beach waves. This effortlessly chic look only takes a couple minutes but will last all day. No matter what the occasion is, it is impossible to go wrong with loose curls. For this look you will need a one and a half inch curling iron, a light hold hairspray, dry shampoo, and a teasing brush. The key to achieving this look is to use your hands to help give your hair shape and volume. Here are my steps to getting perfect beachy waves!

1Brush out hair.

2Start curling medium sized portions of hair with your curling iron.

3Once you are done curling your hair, shake it out.

4Tease hair with teasing brush and use hands to give volume.

5Spray your roots with dry shampoo to give more texture and volume.

6Shake hair out again and comb your hands through it.

7Lightly spray hairspray throughout the curls.

Now that you’ve got gorgeous hair, what better way to dive into summer than with the perfect summer outfit. For this look I chose to wear a floral maxi dress. No matter what the season is, floral patterns are always trendy. The fun and flirty vibes it gives is perfect for summertime. During summer, I love to wear flip-flops. They are easy to wear and cute. Last but not least, I love completing my outfit with some simple pearl earrings. I love summer style because it is pretty and effortless.
