Watch our step-by-step tutorial on how to get the perfect Beachy Waves with Redken Artist and Rio’s own Sami Skinner.

Begin by preparing your hair with Redken’s Beach Envy Shampoo and Conditioner.  For Beachy Waves, follow this up by treating your hair with Redken’s Wave Aid.  Be sure not to brush or even run your fingers through your hair while this product is drying – you do not want to end up with a big, frizzy mess!

IMG_6632Once the product is dry, you can enhance your waves even further.  If you have naturally have smaller waves, then your should use a smaller iron. For bigger beachy waves, use a bigger size – the point it take what you already have and enhance your waves further.

Look at the surface of your hair for lazy or flat sections.  These are the areas you want to use the curling iron on. Grab one inch sections at a time to curl.  You only need to focus on the visible areas to enhance and give definition to your hair.

The final step to achieve the perfect Beachy Waves is to finish with Redken’s Wax Blast.  This will add texture and shine to your look.  Hit it with the blow dryer for the Wax Blast to take effect.  Again, you don’t want to brush your hair through during this step.  You can just lift chunks of your hair to make sure the heat hits everywhere.

We hope you enjoyed our first video hair tutorial!  All of the products used are available for purchase at the studio located at 9823 Tapestry Park Circle, Suite 8 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Thick, Summer Braid

1405996027191     Version 2

Treasures and Travels Blog

There are so many great ways to style braids in your hair but this is one of my favorites. This thick, relaxed braid will keep the heat off your next and looks good at beach or for a night out. The key is that after you’ve braided all your hair gradually to one side, pull at the braid to give it more thickness and a relaxed look.

One Minute Knotted Half-Up

Barefoot Blonde

Simple, quick and easy but gives your hair that extra little bit of magic. Plus, it keeps your hair out of your face when facing that ocean breeze.

Messy Bun

Version 2      Version 3

Cupcakes and Cashmere

Sometimes we don’t want to style our hair because our destination means that any effort will be ruined – like when you’re cruising down 1st to meet up with some friends at the beach. That’s why this hairstyle is perfect – a minimal amount of effort that a lot more fun that a regular ponytail and practical enough to keep your hair out of your face – even with the crosswinds.
