HOW TO: BEACHY WAVES | Episode |
June 22, 2012
One of Sally's favorite hair stylists shows her how to create that perfect "beachy wave" look for summer.
Who wouldn't want hair that looks like this?
I can't promise that your face or body will look like Kate or Gisele after you try the "beachy wave" blowout, but I swear your hair will at least be Biarritz Beachy and ready to go!
The above pics are courtesy InStyle.com, where their tips are similar to Brittany's, except that instead of a pomade, they suggest a "shine serum." In this month's printed InStyle, they suggest a two-part (night before/day after) process:
1. PREP HAIR - If you're starting with dry hair, spritz strands with beach spray and tosle with fingers. Washing hair first? Skip conditioner after shampoo. Then towel dry and add moussewith a wide-tooth comb. Create a series of mini buns around your head by twisting then spiraling small sections and securing them with elastics. Wrap hair in a silk scarf & go to sleep. [I love that they tell you to go to sleep -- what if I want to stay up for a late-night cocktail with my hair in mini-buns?? Will I still get the beachy wave right??! - sh]
2. BRING ON THE WAVES - Remove the elastics and shake out har. To enhance the texture, add some beach spray and scrunch. Set blow-dryer heat to low or medium, place diffuser near rootsm and begin moving in circular motion. (If you have fine hair, flip your head over and dry upside down.) to dry the ends, hold hair up to the diffuser. Finish with a blast of cold air to bring out shine.
