Babydoll Beauty Secret: Best Beach Waves for Summer

74614b0f3107631838b06821df9bf109

As we entered into the warmer months we have been seeing beautiful blonde melts and long beachy waves. And as any one who has had their hair done, one of the most said comments is “I’ll never be able to do this at home” while I generally agree (I can’t curl my hair to save my life) I do know a great way to achieve beach waves at home.

The main secret to achieving this look is the prep you do to your hair right after shampooing. First you will need to use a very gentle hydrating leave in conditioner; my personal favorite is Lanza’s Keratin Bond 2. a16996d6a14a538122e75ae4ab81184bUse about a nickel size amount and scrunch into hair to work it in. Next you will want to use a light hold pomade. Most people will use this product if they have short hair and want to achieve a spikey or messy look but pomades can be used in longer hair too. But by using a dime size amount and rubbing into your hands and scrunching into the middle to ends of your hair it will help your hair retain hair memory and never be crunchy. If you were looking for more volume try scrunching more product in the areas of hair closest to your scalp.  0e59966de9f5a3c583fb47b2617dade5My favorite pomade to use is Biomega’s Text Me; has a great smell and the perfect amount of hold without making hair too sticky or greasy looking. The last step is let your hair air dry and viola beautiful beach waves (and in under 5 minutes)! And 794bc7525d2dee234f423fa8403345b0if you happen to have some pesky fly aways you can always finish it off with Moroccan Oil’s Smoothing Serum. Just make sure to really work into hands before applying to hair to avoid making your beach waves appear greasy.

Now you’re ready for summer (just don’t forget the sunscreen)!

Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Fight the Shine!

Our wedding stylist Amanda always has amazing beauty tips and some of my favorites of her’s are the ones I can easily apply to my day to day life. Especially when I may be in a pinch and need a quick and easy fix to get me through until I can replenish whatever product I may be out of. And this tip has proved to help me out time and time again! 

Throughout the day we tend to get a bit shiny and we don’t always have those wonderful blotting sheets around to help. Most of us do, however, make it into Starbucks at least once or twice a week. Next time you’re in there pick up a few extra napkins. They work great as a blotting sheet when you’re in a pinch. Simply unfold the napkin and just like a blotting sheet, gently press onto your face in any area that may have a little too much shine for your taste. And ta-da! No more shine!
