Happy Belated Memorial Day!  I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend and spent some time outdoors in the Sunshine!  

Now that the warmer weather is here, it’s time to revamp our beauty routines.  Just like we have packed away our heavy sweaters, we need to also change up our hair and makeup.  Instead of heavy foundation and dark lips – it is now time for dewy, tinted moisturizer and lip gloss.  I have started embracing my curls and rocking beachy, waves instead of flat-ironing my hair.  

In order to create my fabulous waves I used some of the products from John Frieda’s Beach Blonde Collection.  Don’t let the name fool you!  They work perfectly on any hair color.  I picked up the shampoo, conditioner and sea salt spray during my trip to Target for the Lily sale and I am obsessed with them!  They smell totally delicious (like a mojito almost) and create a great texture for natural looking beachy waves.

 To achieve my look I completed the following steps:

1.  I washed with the Cool Dip shampoo and Smooth Seas conditioner.  Afterwards, I gave it a quick blow dry to speed up the process but you if you have the time I would definitely let it air dry.  It is better for your hair and it will help your curls have more volume.

2.  After it was dry, I grabbed one inch sections and wound them around the base of a closed curling iron.  I don’t use my clamp.  I didn’t worry about making my curls uniform.  These waves are beachy and casual and this is an unstructured look.

3.  Once I was done curling my hair I sprayed it with the Sea Salt Spray.  Then, I used my hands to scrunch and ran my fingers through the curls to loosen them up.  The whole process took me about 15 minutes!
