Dealing with long hair on vacation requires a few clever updos to keep Rapunzel tresses in check, especially if humidity, salt water or chlorine are involved... or all three! To help boost your hairstyle repertoire for your summer getaways, we've selected five easy long hair looks to try. Check them out below!
1. Messy ponytail
Textured hairstyles are not only a serious trend this season, they also kind of happen by accident when you're on vacation. So, make the most of your beachy, air dried, tousled locks with a messy ponytail. Place it high so the hair stays off the back of your neck.
Get perfectly messy waves with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray. Apply it to dry or damp hair and blowdry in twisted sections.
2. Braided ponytail
Blake Lively's high, braided ponytail is the perfect vacation hairstyle. With the braid kept fairly loose, it's a laid back yet practical style, and it's easy to dress up for a night out.
Increase the volume of your ponytail by spraying the lengths with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and gently tease it.
3. Voluminous updo
A light, airy updo is a great way to deal with frizzy hair, or to protect thick hair from becoming frizzy in the first place.
Complete your updo with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to protect your hair against more frizz and unwanted flyaways.
4. Braided updo
A braided updo like this one worn by Jennifer Lopez will minimize UV exposure, keep your hair off your neck and prevent frizz. It'll also transform slightly damp hair into pretty waves.
After securing your updo, use a toothbrush with hairspray on it to create a slight wispy texture wherever you want it.
5. Messy updo
If you want a hairstyle that's full of texture and volume, a messy updo is the perfect choice. It's also a really good look for days when you don't want to shampoo your hair as it hides dirty roots.
Refresh day two hair and give your strands more grip with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray. The dry shampoo formula will absorb excess oil and add lift at the root.
