The Perfect Holiday Hair: Beachy Waves

Beachy Waves 1

Disclaimer: This post is not an AD, I just like the products that I’m using right now.

I don’t know about anyone else but on holiday I find that it’s a bit of a pain sorting out my hair every day. Personally, when I go away I prefer to work with my hairs natural texture rather than obsessively straightening or curling it. When your contending with humidity, sweating and general hot weather issues it can be difficult to find a flattering style that works all day anyway. My hair naturally has a bit of a wave to it but you can also achieve beachy waves if you have fine or straight hair too. The staple product for beachy waves is a good texturising spray, I used to always use the Sea Salt spray by Fudge Urban because I loved the smell of it but I’ve found a new favourite product. The Stylista Beach Waves Mist by L’Oréal has taken the baton and ran away with it, whilst it doesn’t smell as nice, I do prefer the end product.

To get the above look, I like to start with a freshly washed, clean and damp base to enhance any existing waves that naturally fall in my hair. Recently I have been using the TIGI Dumb Blonde shampoo and conditioner to look after my bleached locks. I then lightly towel dry my hair until it no longer drips and brush it through with my Tangle Teaser, though, if you have fine/straight hair you should skip this step as it will smooth out your hair more than necessary for this style. Next, I like to scrunch my hair and lightly spritz the texturising spray from the roots to the ends. I keep scrunching my hair like this every few minutes until it has air dried. Once my hair has dried I like to flip my hair upside down and back again to give it some volume before adding more of the Beach waves spray.

I shower every day on holiday because I feel like my hair gets a lot of product build up and any chlorine or sea water from swimming doesn’t really help it any. That being said, if you wanted to keep it for longer you could always turn it into a messy bun or use it to give braids a bit of added grip if you prefer your hair out of the way in this heat. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, I thought it would be a handy one if you’re looking to give your hair a little extra texture.
