First to achieve that beachy hair:
No matter your hair texture or length, braids are an easy look for high temperatures. This childhood favorite hairstyle has quickly become a modern, chic and wearable hair ‘do. Below, are the secrets to styling the perfect braid this summer:
Khloe Kardashian Julianne Hough Jennifer Aniston
If your hair is on the thin or short side, there is an easy solution for you – extensions. Attaching a ponytail piece like the Hairdo by HairUWear Beach Curl Pony ($49: ULTA.com) will help you achieve a bouncy, thick style like Khloe Kardashian, above.
When it comes to braids you want texture, so spritz a volumizing and texturizing spray throughout and let it air-dry before styling, like Julianne Hough, above. Try UNITE Beach Day Spray ($29.95: unitehair.com) which will give your hair just the right amount of roughness it needs.
To add in a small braided detail like Jennifer Aniston, simply attach a clip-in braid like the POP by HairUWear Clip-In Long Braid ($10: ULTA.com).
And According to Glamour Magazine here are Four tips to eachieve that oh so coveted beachy look!
#1 STOP Embarrassing breakouts and your pores getting clogged with Lancome’s instant flash bronzer. It’s like makeup for your body.
#2 Banish unwanted bloat with Clarins body firming cream- it’s like Spanx in a tube.
#3 Use a Dry brushing Elemis Body brush. Brush in 8 circular motions in every spot. This flushes out toxins- and lessens the appearance of cellulite and smoothed out skin.
#4 Camouflage your stubble with fresh rice dry oil- it softens and flattens out hair everywhere!
