We’re guilty of sticking with the same hair cut for years—if it’s not broke, why fix it?—but that can be a little boring. But not everyone has our issue. Paulina, one of our amazing operations associates, is always eyeing new cuts and styles. She’ll be sharing her tress inspiration and tips every other week here via her Hairistocracy column.
Summer vacations are about to kick-off and in less than a week, I’m boarding a cruise for a week-long tour through Mexico and the Caribbean! Obviously, I can’t help but muse over the hair products and accessories I’m going to pack to make sure I’ve got gorgeous hair from day one.
Signing onto Free People’s blog, BLDG 25, yesterday, I stumbled over a sneak peek of their May catalog, which was shot in Miami. This is totally the look I’m going for.
With “natural” and “low-maintenance” as my keywords, I spent today rummaging through our Shop and elsewhere for go-to’s! Feast your locks on the list below:
1. Hair Accessory of choice, Twistband Headbands: Easy, damage-free accessories that are discrete in size and come with a bang of color! Layer them up for a tighter, more interesting look!
2. Easy air-dry crème and texturizer, Bb. Texture Hair (Un)dressing Crème: This product is amazing for pumping up the volume of your natural wave and adding a little grit in the mix. Crunchy hair is not to be expected; apply on damp locks and toss to get sexy!
3. Lulu organics Lavendar and Clary Sage powder: Dry shampoo is a must on low-maintenance beach excursions. This one is by far my favorite for its nurturing and organic ingredients. Can I also admit that it’s my favorite because of the beautiful packaging?
4. Orofluido Elixir: I know, I know, Birchboxer staffers have boasted about this one before, but have you tried it? I got my hands on a few samples lying around the office and I remembered again why I was hooked the first time. This hair oil is a must for sleek looks on the nights out. Smooth over your hair before pulling it up or simply coat the ends of your hair for a nourishing effect. The scent is magnificent and not too overpowering. A few drops go a long way!
