Island Life: Your Frizzy Hair Solutions
As spring showers fade away, we’re embracing the sun-filled days of summer. Whether you’re dreaming of island life from the hammock in your backyard or jet-setting to your favorite tropical destination like Bali, St. Bart’s or Maui, embracing trendy island inspired fashion is sure to put extra pep in your step this week.
Florals, palms, pineapples, flamingos and brightly colored pom-pom details are just a few of our favorite touches that conjure up visions of azure waves, white sandy beaches and tropical blended beverages. Island life is perfect, no? There’s just one downfall to tropical bliss…from the moment you step out of the air conditioned airplane cabin you probably notice your hair is going crazy! While you may love your sun-kissed skin, you probably don’t love the frizzy hair that accompanies humid climates. A bad hair day can temporarily suppress your inner beach goddess, but a few tricks can have you back on the beach, exploring local shops and markets and even transitioning to dinner.
Say “aloha” to a few new hair accessories prior to boarding your flight to paradise. After a morning shower, apply a quarter sized dollop of your favorite frizz taming cream to damp hair. Allow hair to air dry before tossing your locks into an effortless ponytail or messy bun using one of our go-to L.Erickson USA Scrunchies. You’ll feel breezy and sweat-free all day with your hair out of your face and protected from sudden wind bursts. The floral basic looks just as chic with a bikini as with a white sundress and wedges for a romantic beach view dinner.
For an alternative look, opt for a French or Fishtail braid. Braids add femininity while keeping you frizz free even on a humid hike or swimming in the ocean. Keep your beach style from veering towards boring with the L.Erickson Cabo Headband. Brightly colored pom-pom adorn your crown, pairing nicely with a flowy black romper, a brightly colored maxi dress or denim shorts and a v-neck. Once you’re back home you can use this tropical inspired on-trend accessory to turn heads all summer long. Get ready for massive compliments because that’s what you’re going to get!
Stuck at home for the season instead of adventuring through tropical paradise? Bring the island vibes to you and channel the good vibes of vacation all summer long. For a fun piece for your next barbecue, happy hour or girls’ brunch opt for the L.Erickson It’s a Wrap in Waimea Bloom. The fabulous headwrap comes in both fuchsia and coral for a punchy pop of color sure to brighten up even the drabbest gray day.
