So excited to share with you guys how I am planning to do my hair while I am on vacation! I was looking for a low maintenance hairstyle that’s appropriate for the beach, so came up with this quick and easy no heat hairstyle.
When we are on vacation, I try and avoid getting my hair wet, but it happens and after that there’s no getting a combo through it. So I will just do what I can the make the best of it. We plan to beach, explore and then eat dinner before going to our hotel. I know that put together curls are just not going to make it!
So these are the products that I am bringing with me. I have been using the Briogeo line for awhile and I packed the volumizing line in travel size for my vacation.
Most of you know I do have hair dreams extensions, I got mine from Suzie at Salon Beaucage in Boston. These naturally dry slightly wavy, so if you have pin straight hair or fine hair (which I had before extensions) I would section my hair and do pig tail braids!
Before you begin: APPLY PRODUCT
These products are my FAV I apply the CHI shine infusion and some hair spray to my damp hair before braiding
Pig tail braid your hair (tight braid) when it is HALF DRY. Do not braid soaking wet hair and expect it to dry wavy… Just make sure your hair is slightly damp and you put the products that I mention in before you braid your damp hair. Once its dry you can take the braids out and spray some hair spray in it messing it up for volume, I love to use a volumizing spray like THIS one from BRIOGEO.
1. Section the top of your hair
MOHAWK section of your HAIR about 4 inches brow arch to brow arch
2. Section the middle of the mohawk
Take the middle 2 inches and braid that, in a French braid if you can
3. Gather and Secure
Gather the extra side pieces with the braided section to make on mohawk and then tie it.
Voila! You are done. I am a terrible hair braider, if I can do it you can do it! I attempted a french braid but you cant really tell.
You can add a little bun to this no heat hairstyle by twisting the hair around itself and securing with a boddy pin or barrette, somehow I always have bows around (thanks Koko) so I used a cute pink bow to secure the tale of my bun. Pull it apart a little so it is not super tight.
Seriously this no heat hairstyle is super easy can be done right on the beach without a mirror even. I add the Briogeo shimmer spray for added flare! I also spray this all over my body for a nice shimmery tan!
This picture makes me really look desperate for a hair appointment! I have one after we get back from vacation! So looking forward to it! I will share more of my no heat hair styles from my vacation!
