Beach HairStyle to Rock this Summer

Laid-back easy glamour, beach waves are now as visible on the Red Carpet as they are beach-side but how do you achieve them?

Jordan Robertson, Senior Stylist at Pastels Salon Ritz Carlton gives us the low-down on a trend that shows no signs of abating!

L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni ART Full Volume Extra Mousse
L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni ART PLI

To achieve tight beach waves, start by spraying some L’Oreal Tecni Art Pli only through the hair and smooth out the hairline, ensuring you don’t smooth the ends out as you want to keep the hair’s natural texture. Then, split the hair into small half- inch sections and starting from the back using a one-inch tong wrap the hair around the tong and hold for 20 seconds. Make sure you don’t twist the hair as you wrap it and when removing the tongs, avoid touching the hair. Tong the last sections on the hairline away from the face. Once the hair has all cooled down apply a good amount of L’Oreal Beach Waves and scrunch into the hair as well as the roots.

L'Oréal Beach Waves

For smoother, looser beach waves, apply L’Oreal Tecni Art Pli from the roots to the ends and blow dry smooth with little root lift. Working from the back, take one-inch sections and use a large tong to curl. This time, when wrapping the sections around the tong apply a little twist as you go. 
When coming to the hairline make sure the sections are away from the face again – this gives a natural look. 
Once the hair is cooled brush out with a wide tooth comb – never use a brush or a small comb for this, it needs to be a wide tooth comb.  Next, apply a little amount of L’Oreal Beach Waves. Try putting in a side parting and tuck one side behind the ear for an on-point look.

Mario Badescu Aloe & Cucumber Spray

To keep hair looking good at the beach, I would recommend ensuring you have these five hero products always in your beach bag – L’Oreal Beach Waves, L’Oreal PLI, a Tangle Teezer, L’Oreal full volume mousse and Mario Badescu Aloe and Cucumber spray. The last one is technically a facial spray but trust me your hair needs some moisture too, especially after a day of sand and sea exposure! So to rejuvenate your hair, spritz a little onto it and watch it transform into hydrated healthy and fabulous, perfectly ready to go from the beach to the bar.

What are the haircare must-haves of 2019

With an overwhelming array of haircare offerings already on salon retail stands and news about product drops constantly filling our social media streams, it can be difficult to get to grips with what you should definitely have on your bathroom shelf to maintain your best possible hair, especially if you have to consider not only your hair’s texture and type but also your lifestyle.  But, there are some products that are deemed must-haves and which leave stylists raving.

Check out what some of Pastels’ stylists consider their hero products.

“For long-lasting beach waves, nothing beats using Balmain texturizing spray with heat protection on each section before curling” – Riqui, Junior Stylist, Pastels Salon Ritz Carlton

“One of my favourite products is the Kerastraight serum. It is a heat protector which is perfect to use on wet or dry hair and it is very moisturising. I absolutely love how soft hair is after using it!” – Jessica, Senior Stylist, Pastels Salon Jumeirah

“Want more manageability and protection? Then Redken 25 benefits One United is a must. It is a light weight product with anti-frizz and detangling properties. It helps prevent breakage and has heat and colour protection, sealing the cuticle and giving a silky touch.” – Natalie Anne, Senior Stylist, Pastels Salon Mercato

“If you’re a brunette and you want to keep brassiness at bay, then you should invest in L’Oreal Color Corrector and use it once a week.” –  Vesna, Senior Stylist, Pastels Salon Ritz Carlton

“Are you after glossy, stronger, healthier hair, then ask for Olaplex 1 & 2 in salon use is for you, it‘s brilliant for all hair types and textures; before a blowdry, within a colour, after a colour or just as a stand-alone treatment. Then for a top-up at home then you can purchase the Olaplex no.3 home kit, it takes just 10minutes a week and will leave your hair feeling luscious for longer. After just one use, you’ll be hooked.” – Charlotte, Senior Stylist, Pastels Salon Mercato
