Autumn is here, but that is no reason to slip into a wintery depression and start slacking on your style. Remember, if you feel good, you look good and if you look good you’ll feel good; everything is connected, mind, body, and soul!
Let’s look at keeping that surfy, beach and summer feel alive as we roll into winter.

Summer Hair and Makeup to Crash Those Winter Parties
Obviously, the sure-fire way to make sure your trans-seasonal look is great, is to go to your favorite hair salon and have your hair and makeup done by a professional. Lucky for you the tousled, wavy beach look can be had whether you hair is layered and long, bobbed, midi, or even a lob. But what about maintaining that everyday awesomeness?
Kevin Murphy has some great products and a couple that will really help you attain this look is their Hair Resort Beach Texturiser and Hair Resort Spray. This stuff is so easy to work with; you can just spray it into your hair either damp or dry, or scrunch it up and go! This fragrant citrus, tangerine, and honey spray gives lots of volume and has just the right hold and weight to give you that nice, summer wind tousled look.
Another great way to achieve this look is by using Davines Sea Salt Spray. This is an award-winning product renowned for its ability to give tons of volume, texture and control, but still maintaining almost no weight. Plus … it’s carbon neutral!
The actual product description for the dry effect says, ‘Tousled and Beach-like Waves’ … which is exactly what we’re after!
Here is the How To
All of these products work great on the go, and you’ll be blown away by what the Sea Salt Spray can do to even super limp hair, but if you really want to take it to that Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba level, you should wash your and condition lightly. You’ll want to use a conditioner that leaves your hair soft and light with as little conditioning residue left-over as possible.
Do a quick towel dry and generously apply spray to the ends (avoiding the roots). Flip you hair so that you can target different sections without getting the roots. You can really blast the volume and turn the knobs to 11 by hitting it for a moment with the dryer, but for that uber-natural look, just let your hair dry naturally.
Take your curling tongs and wrap lengths of your hair in different amounts to randomize the sets of waves, lightly holding for three to five seconds(pay attention to your wand or tong’s barrel size and heat. More heat and tightness will create more pronounced effect -we’re going for waves here … not curls). We find that medium sized oval shaped barrels work great for this task. After you have done all of your hair, lightly drag your fingers through to give it a natural blended look.
Put on some smokey eyes and you’re one hot winter babe!
