Beach in a Bottle
February 27, 2011 § Leave a comment
Tousled and textured, beach hair is one of my favorite parts of summer. I love the relaxed look that is worthy of both comfy flip flops and killer heels. It looks good under a beanie, a fedora or by itself. It is the Heidi Klum of hairstyles – it works with just about everything. Since I am no surfer and do not go to the beach regularly, achieving the beach hair requires the perfect hair product that gives you the right amount of waves. I was on the verge of giving up after a few years (and hair product aisles) of flops and fizzles when I came across *Sachajuan’s Ocean Mist. Yes, it is a little pricey but a little goes a long way. The Swedish brand is relatively new but let the results speak for themselves. The waves last all day and it doesn’t leave an “icky” sticky feel that is common in beach sprays. Plus, the sea foam green hue is just too pretty to pass up
I prefer to curl random sections of my hair using a 1 1/2” curling iron to give it more texture and bounce. Curling them around the barrel prevents clamp marks and looks more natural. Let the curls cool before spritzing the mist. Shake it out and/or tease the crown for a voluminous look.
