During the summer months I need something that would be easy and require little to no heat. Alternating with each wash cycle (about every two to three weeks), for this style, I wash my hair, blow dry (on a low setting with cool bursts of air) and flat iron with one pass (not making it “bone/stick straight). Next, I make a part in my hair, either on the side or down the middle and take one large section on both sides of my head, apply a light cream or oil (Frederic Fekkai Olive Oil Cream or Jojoba oil) and two strand twist it creating two “twisted buns”. Once the "buns" are created, I head to bed and in the morning, “release” them and slightly fluff my hair to separate and create a little volume (I have to admit I like big hair..sometimes).
The result is a nice beach wave look without all the fuss, loads of heat and/or tons of product, plus it takes less than 10 minutes to part, apply a dab of product twist and pin. I will keep this look for about until my hair wash day.
The beauty in this style is that it doesn’t require me to flat iron my hair continuously/daily and I can have no fuss beach waves minus the heat pretty much over night. To keep this look just retwist nightly and voila!
What easy breezy go to hairstyles do you rely on?
