Even though summer is not *quite* here, that doesn’t mean you cannot emulate the beachy waves at home. Get the bounce as well as the texture and tousle, minus the sand, with these expert tips from Edward Tricomi of the Warren Tricomi Salon.
Tricomi says,”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.”
Here’s how to get the look with simple styling products and techniques:
1) On damp hair, spray a volumizing spray on the roots and hairline. The spray will offer lift to the roots and create the correct amount of bounce and volume without allowing the hair to be really sticky (salt water will do that). The spray also will give the hair shine and de-frizz the strands.
2) Use bobby pins and secure hair in loose spirals all around the head.
3) Air dry or blow dry –your choice! Remove the pins and shake out the hair using your fingers. Tricomi’s tip? “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.”
Choose a product with SPF if possible. We recommend the volumizing hairspray by Cutler.
