A step-by-step guide to a beach-blown wet look that will have you sailing off to the shores of Seminyak in a flash.
For most of us, the tan lines obtained through endless hours of laying about on beach chairs have faded. The procession of margaritas we devoured are a mere, salt-rimmed memory left on the tips of our tongue. Our ears have stopped ringing from the blaring music pounding in various hot spots and pubs we frequented on our wild summer getaways.
However, there is a way to bring a little of the beach life back in to our day-to-day reality with the flick of a comb and strategically applied serum.
Haircare experts, Babyliss PRO, have provided us with a step-by-step guide to a bang-on-trend wet look that can get you from beach to bar, or at least help eradicate the holiday blues.
Step 1. Toss the Tangles.
Good styling starts with a good base and that means nixing the knots and nourishing your locks. First shampoo, condition and towel dry your hair.
Follow by removing all tangles with a wide tooth comb. Comb back your strands and shape with a small amount of serum.
A top beauty tip is using Argan Oil. This ‘liquid gold’ contains powerful nutrients to soften and de-frizz your hair, while nourishing the strand from root to tip.

Step 2. Style to Sleek.
After you have set up the base for your beach-babe look, apply a liberal amount of styling serum throughout the hair and distribute with a wide tooth comb.
This will not only keep your tresses in place but will also add an extra layer of nourishment to perfect and protect your hair.
Step 3. Flawless Finish.

To create the finished look, comb the top, sides and back of the hair with a fine tooth comb. Apply a little more styling serum to the back of the hair with hands. Use your fingers to loosely twist sections to create a loose clumped texture. Allow hair to dry naturally.
After which, KarryOn recommends you set your IPhone to island groove mode and let the stress of the day sail away by dreaming of that generously minty margarita…and the cute bartender that served it!
