But let's face it, we are all so busy these days, and during the summer especially! No one wants to spend a ton of time in the bathroom mirror, trial and error-ing style after style - we want to get it right, look great, and get our butts to the pool or to a summer concert! Here are my new favorite ways to get fabulous, foolproof summer hair without having to spend all of my freetime doing it!
My friend, Whitney, was a very lovely & willing model, and we appreciate her greatly!
My second favorite tool of the summer is the CRIMPER. Yes, the CRIMPER! Another 90's throwback! I have tried all sorts of ways to give myself really gorgeous and long-lasting beachy waves, and the crimper has been BY FAR my most foolproof. I got mine (Ion brand) at Sally Beauty Supply for around $30, and let me tell you, that $30 was WELL SPENT! I have crimped the dickens out of every lock and strand I have come across! Never will you find a more natural and gorgeous, but more importantly, long-lasting and HUMIDITY RESISTANT way to get the perfect summer waves - I've worn my crimped hair to the lake, to work, and to a hot and sweaty outdoor concert (Third Eye Blind - so great!) - and the humidity couldn't knock it!
+ Use a heat protectant on hair (very important - don't want to damage those lovely locks!)
+ Start crimping 1/2 of an inch from the root/scalp
+ Hold iron to hair for 5-7 seconds
+ Move iron into next "fold" of hair, and repeat!
+ Finish with a light hairspray or texturizing sea salt spray
**As a bonus, if you want to preserve your crimp for the next day, just braid your hair into pigtails before hitting the hay at night, and they will still look like a million bucks the next day!
