Being a teacher, I need to be out the door by 7 am. I also need to make sure my hair looks professional, and not just pulled back in a sloppy bun. Sloppy buns are great if you can pull it off, but I can't, mine look really sloppy!
Enter my quick and easy 'beach' hair. This seriously takes 5 minutes to do in the morning and you HAVE to shower the night before (win-win!).
My hair: My hair is longer, and my cut is long layers. My hair has a natural wave, but not super curly. If your hair doesn't have any wave, I recommend sleeping in the sea-salt spray and using it again in the morning.
Step 1: Take a shower the night before. When you get out of the shower, spray a leave-in conditioner or detangling spray. I really like Pureology Colour Fanatic. Brush out your hair with a comb (it helps prevent split-ends).
Step 3: When you wake up, finger comb through the waves. I then apply sea salt spray, staring half-way down my hair to the ends. This helps bring the wave "back to life". I recommend any sea salt spray, today I used Not Your Mother's Sea-Salt Spray
Step 5: You'll probably have some fly-away pieces of hair. I use Aveda Smoothing Serum. It only takes a little (dime size) and do not put on your roots! It will make your hair look greasy.
Step 6 (optional): Bangs! I have long side bangs, that I hate being in my face so I french braid them back. Some like to twist, or you can do a poof on top.
Step 7 (optional): Hairspray! I don't like to use a ton, but it is your preference. This is the best hair spray because it has great hold but it doesn't make your hair 'crunchy'.
I hope you enjoyed this post!
