Spring break is the perfect time for embracing a more natural, casual, or even messy look. Check out a few of our favorite easy breezy styles that are ideal for relaxing by the pool or sipping a margarita on the beach.
Embrace The Waves
Those with naturally wavy hair may feel the day-to-day pressure to define their curls or ironing their hair into a sleek, straight look. During spring break, let your natural look shine. Forget the curling irons and straighteners. Instead, grab a texturizing spray.
We love Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray and Oribe Apres Beach Wave & Shine Spray. While your hair is still wet, twist it into sections to create a piecey style. Spray in a bit of texturizing product and let your hair air dry for a cool, effortless look.
Even if your hair is lacking in the texture department, you can still achieve beachy waves without investing much time or effort. In fact, you can get the look overnight.
Start with damp hair and spritz on a bit of texturizing spray. Divide the hair into four equal sections and braid each section. Secure the end of each braid with a hair tie or bobby pins. Get some beauty sleep and take out the braids in the morning. You'll find gorgeous, flowy waves.
Bring On The Color
Spring break is notorious for being a vacation from real life and a time when you can let loose. Why not go all out and take part in a trend that you might shy away from back home? Try out the pastel color trend to instantly get your hair into vacation mode. Not ready to take the plunge? Try an ombre or soft sombre.
Braids will always be the answer to bad hair days and late mornings. The look is perfect for a lazy spring break day, too. Try a simple braid or French braid. Or change it up by trying out a fishtail braid. Start by separating your hair into two sections. Take a small section from one side and bring it over to join the other side. Do the same with the opposite. Continue back and forth until you reach the end of your hair. Secure it with a hair tie and you're done.
