Is it that time of the year again! Yes it is! Let's get ready for the beach and put our fantastic beach hair on. What exactly is beach hair? Beach hair is long, loose, sexy, tousled, wavy, bohemian influenced hair that just oozes sexy. So do you want that look? Of course you do!
Edward Tricomi gives us the complete 411 on how to get this beach bohemian look without the frizz. "The salt in beach water roughens hair up, giving it texture and a certain look women love. It’s a great alternative to straightening hair and worrying if it’s going to withstand the humidity and frizz. Getting the look at home without taking a trip to the sandy beach is simple," says stylist Edward Tricomi. "By using a combination of the right styling products and techniques you could create the same effect easily, no matter your hair texture.”
Step 1: Start by spraying a volumizing spray on damp hair at the roots and hairline. The spray boosts lift at the roots, creates the right amount of bounce and volume without the stickiness of salt water, imparts shine and de-frizzes strands.
Step 2: Using bobby pins, secure hair in loose spirals all around the head.
Step 3: Allow hair to air dry or speed up the process by blow-drying; then remove pins and shake out hair using fingers. “It is best to blow-dry hair on high heat for a shorter period of time rather than exposing your hair to medium heat for a longer length of time” explains Tricomi.
This is also a much safer alternative as hanging in the sun can dry and damage your strands. If you opt to bathe in the sun, Tricomi urges that you protect your hair and scalp by using a leave-in product with SPF.
