Are you a fan of surfer girl hair? Blake Lively makes it seem effortless, but we know sometimes it’s not so easy! We’ve listed a few tips to help you achieve the look without the headache:
Okay, so the goal is to make sure it looks as if your hair has been kissed by the sun and tousled by salt water, not mangled with bedhead. (We’ve all been there…)
You can get this look by starting either with wet or dry hair. If you opt for wet, douse it with sea salt spray. We suggest something like Tigi Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray. Scrunch it with your fingers until the style has time to air dry. If you’re already starting dry, mist it with hairspray and twist sections around your fingers to create volume and dimension. Rumor has it that Rebecca Romijn is a fan of Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz for this method.
If you actually are hitting the waves, we recommend tying your hair into a braid. That way when you come out and have to brush through, it won’t break as much. Try a wide-toothed comb for less strain on your hair. Also, remember to spritz some leave-in conditioner beforehand, so strands stay hydrated!
