Get The Look: Vacation Beach Waves

If you’re heading to the beach this spring (or want to fake a great vacation hair look at home), Wella Professionals Top Artist and owner of Salon Platinum Black in Los Angeles, Michael Haase, has a few quick tips to help you amp up your vacation style.
At home or away, moisture is key to maintaining healthy, shiny, frizz-free locks. About week or two before you are set to leave on a trip, use a deep-conditioning mask like Wella Professional Enrich Moisturizing Treatment, to help seal in moisture and keep frizz at bay.
Once you are away, one fool-proof styling trick is using a hydrating oil like Wella Professionals Oil Reflections. Simply apply a generous amount of oil in the shower when your hair soaking wet. Then, to create natural beach-worthy waves, shake your hair dry without brushing or combing it and just let it air dry. You will be left with beautiful, naturally textured hair.
To take hair from day to night, instead of fighting the natural texture of your island mane, play into it. Leave your blow dryer and curling iron at home, and pack a bottle of great beach spray like Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz. This will give you enhanced volume and texture with very little effort. Just tilt your head to the side and spray Ocean Spritz at arms-length onto dry hair, then repeat on the other side. This technique will allow the spray to land on the hair almost dry, eliminating any need to blow dry. For extra shine, you can follow by scrunching Wella Professionals Oil Reflections into your hair, leaving you with movable, perfectly glossy locks.
