sea breeze bun

Overused words and phrases lose the rich context of their original meaning, becoming clichés. Case in point: beach hair. Before the word “beachy” became the darling of the beauty industry it had lots of connotations: sun streaked, damp, wind-blown, wavy. This style recalls these original associations. It’s not wavy, but the wind blown messiness, seaweed textured tendrils and dampish gloss bring to mind a day at the ocean. Learn to create the look in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
