This summer, natural texture is making a big comeback! There’s a lived-in feel with fashionable styles seen on the runways.
Start this style off right by prepping hair with Totally Beachin’ Shampoo ($13) and Conditioner ($15) by Bed Head. This line helps wash away summer build-up and leaves hair feeling shiny and hydrated.
Follow with Beach Freak Detangler Spray by Bed Head ($16) to replace moisture stripped by the elements. Thoroughly spray over towel-dried hair, focusing on the ends.
Next, use Beach Day Spray by Unite ($24.99) to enhance waves and separate hair. After spraying generously throughout hair, twist small sections away from the face with fingers. This creates a loose wave for straight textures and helps control curl with curly textures.
Dry hair naturally or use the low setting on a blow dryer while lifting hair at the root. To give hair that lived-in look, finish off hair with a flat iron using the flat wave technique. To create flat waves, start in the front sections of the head and part hair horizontally into two sections. Clip top section out of the way and start with the bottom section around the face. Take 2-inch sub-sections and create an ‘S’ formation with hair.
Next, start at the root and flat iron over the ‘S’ formation curl. Repeat. When working in the back of the head, go from the bottom to the top.
Shake out hair and run hands through the flat waves for volume. Finish off your summer style with Joyride Texturizing Powder Balm by Bed Head ($23). Now you’re left with the perfect lived-in hairstyle!
