So those of you who know me, know I love surfing. I try to surf as often as possible, as the sun is rising. The expectancy of what the day holds. I love the moment, I love Australia. Well I have just come back surfing with the boys in Indonesia, Sumatra to be exact with Sumatran Surfarriis . (AMAZING)
So I got inspired about the whole surfer lifestyle, and the hair! ( not that my mates have much hair) It's tightly intertwined with the Aussie lifestyle. The sea, the sun and the surf translates to easy, laid back and unpretentious hair.
As summer comes to an end as we move into April and our Australian Autumn, here are my 3 top surfer inspired styles to try and keep that summer vibe alive! ( again me or any of my mates don't look like these pics, its a loose idea ;))
1. Blonde and Long
This has to be the classic beach babe look. Long layered locks with bleached ends and great texture can take you from the beach to dinner, and is easy to achieve. Wash and condition with O&M's Hydrate and Conquer to keep your hair hydrated when spending lots of time in the ocean. Apply some Atonic Thickening Spritz to add body and dry with the hair-dryer on a cool setting and then using a large barrel curling wand, divide your hair into large sections and add some curl to the mid-lower lengths. Using your fingers roughly rake through some Frizzy Logic. Done.
Another great "Blonde and Long" look with amazing beachy texture. Easy to achieve. Wash, load up with some Surf Bomb and let dry naturally. I love messy hair.
3. Beachy Braids
Still so cool and so beachy. Braids or plaits are a great way to prevent your hair getting tangled at the beach and they are a bit boho and hip. Why not try some different sized plaits through different size sections of your mane? Or a large relaxed plait is easy and breezy on a hot sunny day.
Surf's up! See you at the beach
