Sophie Matthews take us through how best to achieve a classic hot summer look.
Beach Wave Babe
If you have super straight hair that doesn’t curl, this overnight look is perfect for achieving that beachy wave.
After shampooing hair, liberally spray your hair roots to ends with Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray Beach Look. This will add texture for a messy beach look that adds definition to long and fine hair.
Split off your hair into four sections – two at the back and two at the sides. Twist hair in each section into a small bun to the scalp and secure with bobby pins or hair ties. Make sure your part is where you want it the next day.
Leave hair up overnight and, in the morning, take it all down and give your hair a shake. The result: beachy waves. Spray more texturiser if needed.
Tip: Kevin Murphy’s Hair Resort Beach Look Spray is my personal fav, it’s like the beach in a jar. If you’re after more hold for thicker hair, use the Hair Resort Gel, also by Kevin Murphy.
Surfer Scrunched Locks
Shampoo and condition the hair. I recommend using the new Redken Beach Envy Volume texturising range, which gently cleanse and create amplified, loose, beachy waves with amazing body for all hair types.
Apply Redken Beach Envy Volume Wave Aid for infusing texture, and scrunch the hair. Take strands of hair and twist the hair, giving the hair more defined curls. Take one hand and grab the bottom of a section of hair and push that hair up until it meets your scalp. Drop and leave.
