Summer 2020 might not be what everyone was expecting but that doesn’t mean we can’t recreate some holiday spirit at home. Personally, I plan to spend as much time at the beach as I possibly can!
In general, when it comes to holiday styling, it’s all about low maintenance, effortless looks. On holiday, we’re too busy enjoying ourselves, relaxing, soaking up the sun and atmosphere to worry about spending hours getting ready. Suddenly the idea of blowdrying, straightening or curling hair feels intolerable – especially if you’re somewhere hot.
My Cocolicious Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner are the perfect combo to hydrate hair, the number one priority if you are in the sun or sea. The scent is beautifully tropical and will have you dreaming of sipping a cocktail by the pool in seconds.
As for hairstyles, my favourite daytime look is a loose beachy wave. To me it fits so seamlessly with the holiday vibe. After washing, squeeze the moisture from your hair with a towel and tip your head upside down. Add a small amount of my Cocolicious Coconut Water Leave-in Conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair before brushing through with a wide tooth comb. Doing this upside down will not only distribute the product evenly but will also create lift at the root. Separate the hair into sections, twisting loosely with your finger to create a wave (do this in opposite directions for a more natural look). Leave to dry 80/90% before spritzing with my Cocolicious Coconut Water Texture Spray to create that salty, tousled look.
For night time, I’m a huge fan of a sleek bun – it’s so chic and classic. There’s no need to wash hair but if you do, it’s easy to achieve damp too. Brush through hair with a wide tooth comb and loosely draw to the nape of the neck. Using a tail comb, find your parting and make sure it’s straight before slicking back and wrapping into a low bun. Tame flyaways into place with my Cocolicious Firm Hold Hairspray to create that super sleek, glossy look. Replicate a sun kissed glow with some bronzer and you’re good to go!
