Holiday Hair


Good Morning Beautiful,

When I'm on holiday, it's all about the easiest and quickest way possible to make myself look presentable. After all, who wants to spend hours getting ready when you could be out there in the sunshine?
For me, one of the quickest routes to that is some sort of messy braid. It's especially great for the daytime when you want to keep your hair off your face and yet still look pretty.







I really enjoy the first and last inspiration in particular. I like how they don't look perfect, and they have a textured quality to them. A tip for when you're on holiday is to take a spray bottle with you and fill it with sea water, then spritz it through your ends for that beachy texture. 
It's better than any salt spray you can buy in a bottle!

Have a wonderful day everyone,

Lea

    1. The second one is super easy. It's just texturising spray and a load of grips, with some backcombing at the roots! :) x

  12. my favourites are probably the last two but the bad thing is I'm not too good when it comes to creating some special braids. my hair is so long that my hands get tired when I try something, haha.

    1. Always start with a texturising spray and backcombing the roots, then just have a play with pinning some sections and see what happens :) x
