Spring break is here, and many of us (hopefully!) are currently packing for a fabulous destination get-a-way!
There is excitement in the air as we put down our books, and get away from our desks to enjoy the outdoors while the weather is warming up! It’s common to start throwing in cute tops, tanks, shorts, skirts, summer dresses, and bikinis, only to completely forget about what we will be doing with our hair once we get to paradise!
In a recent trip to Miami, I completely forgot about how much effect the humidity, and ocean water would play on my hair – being that I live in a super dry climate and have naturally dry hair as it is! The weather, temperature, and humidity can be quite a change from what you normally deal with in the day-to-day styling. Here are some tips to help you get great style and fabulous hair while on vacation, so you can worry about more important things, like that cute guy by the cabana, staring you down!

Maddie’s Makeup by Tarryn Feldman:
For the carpet, I wanted to create a really clean & fresh look because the dress is such a statement. She already has such beautiful skin so I wanted it to show and not cover it up with too much glam. I love using Becca’s Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation on Maddie because it’s sheer and glowy. She has the perfect skin for it. I used a lot of shimmer products like Makeup Revolution USA’s Blush Queen Palette to give her even more glow. I kept her eyes clean, lots of lash and neutral lip to tie everything together. I love it!

Winter is on it’s way out and the days are finally getting longer. The birds are chirping, the flowers are starting to bloom, and the sun is shining brighter and warmer with each new day. With Spring here, many of us are busy updating our patio and getting our yard in order, moving the winter clothes out of our closet and bringing in the shorts, skirts, and tank tops, and switching up our overall routine a bit to accommodate the warmer weather and Spring activities.
One part of our routine that tends to fall by the wayside, but shouldn’t, is our hair care routine. When the weather starts to warm up, some climates either become drier and some become more humid. Spring calls for an adjustment in hair products to get the most out of your hair.
Here are 6 tips to help you get your Hair Spring-Ready!
By Celebrity Hairstylist Laurie Heaps
Celebrity stylist Laurie Heaps shows how to create the perfect effortless waves 2 ways on actress Rowan Blanchard. For the first look, Laurie embraced her natural texture with the help of a curling iron, while the second style featured a beachy, carefree tail courtesy of a waver.
Wave Look# 1
“As Rowan’s outfit was couture and bold, (No other 15-year-old has ever worn Giambattista Valli Couture!) I did not want to take away from her outfit. But instead, compliment the garments while still staying true to Rowan’s look and personal style,” explains Heaps.
How to Get the Look:
1. Start with naturally dry, wavy hair and add some Full Frame 07 All-Over Volumizing Mousse by Redken in the root area.
2. Then, mist each section with Thermal Styling Spray, Protecting hair when using heat, this product creates shine and natural bounce and does not weigh the hair down.
3. Take 2-inch sections, and wrap hair around the DURA CHI 1 1/4″ Ceramic Spring Curling Iron, leaving the ends out for an undone look.
4. Finish the style by spraying with Dry Finishing Spray.
Wave Look #2
How to Get the Look:
1. Start by prepping wet hair with White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Thermal Styling Spray. With this product, the more heat applied during styling, the shinier the hair becomes.
2. Next, rough dry hair with a hair dryer. It emits over 3 times more ions to reduce frizz. When this is paired with a frizz fighting spray like White Sands Liquid Texture, hair is shinier and smoother.
3. Take 3-inch sections and used a waving iron. For this look, I chose the R Sessions Tools Nalu Waver.
4. Once the hair was waved, pull it into a high pony at the crown and secured with an elastic band.
5. To hide the rubber band, take a small piece of hair from the pony, wrapping it around the tie.
6. Release baby hairs with your fingers and finish by sprinkling Unite Expanda Dust Volumizing Powder into ponytail for volume.
