  • How To Really Get That Picture Perfect Beach Hair

    Hi Dames! Beach waves are the go- to for summer hair.  Duh.  However, I understand not all hair textures keep the same hold on the wave.  Does your beach wave fall limp or become non existent? Well, there’s 2 essentials to a beach wave:

    1. Properly wave your hair with an iron in the manner which your desired wave is flowing. Below is a video to show you how to achieve a glam wave vs. a more relaxed beachy wave

    2.  The proper products. Products are half the battle with hairstyles. There are so many beach and texture sprays out there how do you know which ones to use? Well, I have favorites. First, I don’t really favor the sprays that have salt in them.  They dry your hair out. I prefer the sprays that make your hair piecey and shiny, or a little waxy. Finally, if you have very fine hair and your beach waves fall easily, my ultimate fav is to use a texture spray with strong hold. Hairspray is a little to crunchy sometimes, a strong hold texture spray will give you the same effect with out the crunchy look. This will also keep you from needing to reapply product all day.

    Let me know how it goes for you Dames!
