Hair Trend Report: Beach Waves

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Who's ready for the beach? I am! Although it's finally Spring and Pesach is upon us, the weather has been dreary and cold. Just two nights ago I got caught in a treacherous snow storm on my way to NYC for an engagement party. It felt to me more like January than March. And I keep thinking about last year at this time when I was flying off to Miami for a nice recovery Passover from my kidney donation (see story here and here). But this year I'm happy to be staying home. I'm excited about being in the comfort of my own home for the holiday. The weather is the weather and we will have to deal with it.

And yet when I glance up from my never ending to do list and all I see is a gray, gloomy sky, I do occasionally dream about hot, sunny days on the beach. (Do they even exist? I'm not sure I remember.)
Well how about bringing a little beachiness to your life by styling your hair or wig with beach waves? It's a look that seems easy enough but sometimes is actually not so simple to achieve. One of the factors I looked for in my new Freeda wig was that it would dry naturally with nice texture and waves...kind of like what my real hair used to do.  It can sometimes be difficult to achieve that with a wig but my Freeda wig performed really well!
Last week when I was staying at my daughter's place to help her with her new baby, I realized I wouldn't have a chance to have my wig done before Pesach. One late night I bathed my wig in the shower and let it dry naturally. Sure enough it dried with lots of natural waves. I did end up taking it to a professional for a touch up, but seriously, if you want a natural looking wig with texture I would highly recommend a Freeda Wig.
I love this look because it's not too set. After all, not everyone looks like a Hollywood starlet on the cover of a magazine every day. I prefer to look real and's so beautiful.
Here's how to try beach waves on your own....add the following ingredients to warm water, spray, twist your hair/wig in sections, let air dry. Voila! You'll have beautiful beach waves in no time!

Would you try this style for yourself?

Here's to better weather and warmer days!

Until next time,
