Salty, wavy, thick beach hair is super-sexy — and it doesn't have to be something that you only achieve in the summertime by the sand. Here's how to achieve this faboo tousled wind blown look during the rest of the year.
- First, shampoo and condition your hair before bed and towel dry your hair. Evenly distribute either a mousse or product with hold to it, in even sections throughout your hair. If you have thick or wavy hair, apply a relaxing balm to smooth your curls and tame frizz. Comb through.
- Next, scrunch your hair before you fall asleep and when you wake, your hair will have great texture and volume.
- To fix the front, just wet and blow out the pieces that are funky. Then take a large sized curling iron and wrap about ten different pieces around it to give your hair some freshness, body and bounce.
For some products to help you achieve sexy beach hair,
Kusco Murphy Beach Hair, $29, was created by Australian hair stylist, Kevin Murphy. It's what this pro uses on his cover girls for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. It contains crushed Bamboo (for volume), Stinging Nettle (for strength) and Coconut Oil with Bergamot (for texture).
When hair is already dry, apply a small amount onto your hands and scrunch your hair from the tips towards your roots. The more you use the stronger the effect. Then, continue to mold your hair until you are happy with the shape.
