SUMMER is now here! The sun is out and hotter than ever (Well kind of. It seems to be always warm here in San Diego)! But since it is summer, it means shorts, sun-kissed skin, salty waves (ocean and hair), and embracing your inner mermaid at the beach! I would like to apologize for being M.I.A. for the last couple months. I just felt I was being pulled here and there, and everywhere. But I’m trying to get back to the swing of things. I hope everyone enjoys their summer and looks forward to new posts about maintaining summer hair and getting the perfect summer glow! Stay tuned!
Hey guys I’m back! And tomorrow is my birthday! Over Labor Day my family threw me a pre-birthday bash. So my friend, Kristen (our beautiful model), and I thought why not make a tutorial whilst getting ready. Since Summer was all about the “Beachy waves”, I made a tutorial to transition into messy waves for the Fall! Enjoy!
First things first, (yes I thought of “Fancy”) apply some heat protectant starting from the middle to the ends of your hair. After that we are going to section off the hair by putting the top half in a bun. Start curling the bottom half, grabbing 1 inch sections and wrapping them around your curling iron (pointing down). For the sections in the front, curl the hair away from the face and as you move to the back curl the hair in different directions. Also if you don’t have a curling wand, don’t fret just use a regular curling iron but don’t open the clasp (as I did).
YAY, finished with the bottom! We are half way there! Now do the same thing with the top part.
Looking good Kristen! (TIP: feel free not to have a straight part. The whole point of the look is to be tousled and messy 🙂 )
Once you’re finished curling your hair, you’re going to put some mousse in. I’m using Fudge Urban’s Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Styling Mousse! Rub it together in your hands and scrunch right in. This mousse is anti frizz and smells AMAZING!
Voila! You are done! Look at those B-E-A-U-TI-FUL messy, tousled waves!
If you want to try something different and dress up the look, try this lovely and easy half up do! Just carefully gather some hair from the top section and wrap it up in to a bun (kind of like this), secure with bobby pins and done! Have fun! Muah!
