Vacation Essentials

Thanks to new Blades Associate Tori Payton for giving her top tips for summer vacation style & packing essentials! You can learn more about Tori HERE.

What says “summer,” better than an amazing vacation with people that you love? Whether you’re lounging by the pool or splashing in the waves, I’ve got summer style options to keep you looking fierce for every photo, Snapchat, and Instagram post!

beach-braidStyle: As women on vacation, the number one thing we’re always trying to do is find a hairstyle that survives the surf! One of the best ideas I share with my clients is to rock a braid in the water.

It doesn’t matter if you prefer a side braid, French braid, or multiple braids. If you swim in a plait, your hair will dry to effortless waves that are perfect for vacation. Just allow your hair to dry in the braid, let it down, spray with a light sea salt or sugar spray, fluff, and go!

Products: You can’t go on vacation without a couple styling essentials. I always pack a salt spray to support my waves and to give my hair body after a day in the sun. If your hair is too fine for salt spray, I suggest EIMI’s Sugar Lift spray. It has many of the same great benefits without the weight of the salt.

shaper-sprayUse Sebastian’s Shaper Spray in medium hold to tame flyaways when you’re rocking a bun, ponytail, or braid. I love this product because the hold is flexible, so you can continue to style your hair after you use the spray.

Color: Love to color your hair? Me too! Just remember to get your hair color touched up at least one week before you leave for vacation, or your color may be affected by increased exposure to sun or chemically-treated swimming pools.

Blonde bombshells, do not skip your leave-in conditioner while you’re on vacation! Schwarzkopf’s Moisture Kick is a great option and will help protect your hair from damage from both the sun and pool chemicals.
