It’s (finally) time for Spring Break!
For us, Spring Break means a fun family trip and this year we’re off to Disney World with my parents and my sister and her family for some much needed fun, relaxation and warm temps (see ya later snow)!
Escaping to warmer, more humid, weather made it the perfect time for me to try a couple of new hair products from Suave. Their Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion line has two smoothing products that are designed to keep your hair sleek and frizz-free – perfect for a vacation day on the go: Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Light Weight Weather Proof Cream and Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Anti-Humidity Hairspray. As someone with naturally wavy and slightly crazy hair, I love finding new products to keep my hair under control, especially when humidity strikes.
We plan on spending a good bit of time at the Disney theme parks on this trip and for those days, my hair go-to is a bouncy ponytail. This way, my hair is out of my face and still looks cute for all the photos we plan on taking during the trip.
Here’s how to get the look:
- Wash your hair as normal and use Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Light Weight Weather Proof Cream before blow drying. Blow dry with a flat brush to get your hair smooth.
- Part your hair in half and pull to either side. Using your curling iron (mine is 1-1/2″) work from the back to the front adding curls and waves to your hair. I start a few inches from my roots and hold each section for a few seconds (or till it is hot) and work my way down to the ends, leaving the ends out so they don’t have too much curl to them. You just want to add body and movement, it shouldn’t be too tight of a curl.
- Using a flat brush, comb through the curls and pull everything back into a ponytail based at about ear height or higher, wrapping with a hair tie. Add more curl to your ponytail, if you like, and finish with Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Anti-Humidity Hairspray. The idea is for it to be perfectly imperfect, tousled and all “stylish girl on the go.”
I love how this style can translate from day to dinner too. When we get back from our day, I’ll just touch up my curls, if needed, add some more hairspray to refresh the style, and put on a pair of statement earrings and I’m good to go!
