If you’re anything like me, the unwavering humidity from the ocean sends your hair into a huge, frizzy lion’s mane! While recently at the beach for Memorial Day weekend, I decided to beat the heat (and the humidity) and opt for a posh pony instead of flowing–ahem, I mean frizzy locks.
Albeit, my hair only looked half as sleek and posh as it does when styled professionally by the gals at Blowout Boutique, it did save me from looking like a hot mess with unruly, frizzy tresses. It also kept my neck and shoulders cool amidst 90 degree temps!
Since I left home without hairspray/humidity spray, I had to use the products on hand to create an at-home version of the posh pony. Luckily, I did remember to pack my Moroccanoil Oil Treatment and some straightening balm to relax my frizzy ‘fro. The Moroccanoil was a lifesaver for this frizzy mane. Oh, and did I mention that I’m pregnant, which equals MUCH thicker hair?? The Moroccanoil was able smooth out the frizz and fight against a bit of the ocean’s humidity.
Here’s how I achieved the look:
-Dime size Moroccanoil Oil Treatment
-2 pumps Paul Mitchell straightening balm
-wide barrel curling iron for pony tail only.
I used a side party and secured a high pony-tail with a hair band and only curled sections of my pony tail with a wide-barrel curling iron. I may have opted to lightly straighten the crown of my hair, but alas, I inadvertently left my trusty flat iron behind at home. As you’ll see, the result is slightly frizzy, but tamed in a posh pony a la beach bunny. Bottom line, I’d rather trust the girls at BB to poshify my pony, but at least I’ve taken away a few tips from my visits there to replicate a similar look on the go!
