Don't get us wrong-we love the fantastic attire at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but we're really just checking out the models and their cover-worthy beach waves. This carefree look is ideal for summer but can be tricky to perfect. We asked professionals for easy ways to freshen up beach hair after a day of frolicking in the sand (or how to fake it from your landlocked bathroom).
We're envious of Blake Lively for a few reasons: she goes home to Ryan Reynolds, has beautiful skin, and always has perfectly beachy locks. Lucky for us, we can easily channel Blake's hair in a few simple steps. Grab your beach bag and stock up on these products-and take note of the tips-for a paparazzi-worthy look.
Seal It In
Before hitting the waves or diving into the deep end, rinse your hair with fresh water and apply a conditioner. Spread through hair with a wide-toothed comb. The water or conditioner will fill the voids in your hair, which will prevent it from absorbing chlorine from pools and becoming dried out from saltwater-especially important for color-treated hair.
Applying-and reapplying-sunscreen to your body is second-nature, and your hair needs the same protection. Glamsquad's creative director Giovanni Vaccaro suggests applying a leave-in mask before going to the beach to protect hair from drying out in the sun. An SPF spray will protect your hair from the damaging rays, which can fade color-treated locks.
