Low Bun with a Headband or Head Scarf
This effortless look is simple and perfect for an active day on the town. For hair that's secure, you might need to double up with a bun plus band combo. Go with a headband (a scarf tied around your head, or the more traditional kind) with some strands framing your face, and the rest of your mane pulled back in a low messy bun. Target has some cute headbands to complete your look. If you checked a bag and have the room, definitely pack a holding spray like the NuMe Freeze Please Finishing Spray to lock the look in place.
Who knew starfish accessories were so chic and abundant? Not just for the beach, these cute rhinestone starfish pins are one of many kinds you can find on Amazon. These can adorn hair that's half-up half-down, used to clip a small section to one side, or select portions of a braid. The best pairings with starfish clips are hydration and shine so get both with the NuMe White Truffle Serum, a one-stop-shop for hair priming and reviving.
Easy, Loose Braid with Face Framing Layers
If you want to spend as little time on your hair as possible (but still want it to look cute), this is the simplest braid to create while you're in tourist mode. If you are one of those people who can only do the basic three-section brad, we promise this one is doable since that's all it really is. Secure loosely in the back and leave a few strands to frame the face. If you want to straighten your hair before styling both the braid and the face framers, we go with a powerful tool to tame unruly locks, like our Silhouette Hair Straightener, to last through humid temperatures.
Hairline Twirl / Braided Bangs
This one is also known as a braided headband or a front row braid. If you're growing out bangs, and they're in that awkward in-between-bangs-and-normal-hair stage, this is a great 'do to rock. It's a lifesaver on a hair day that isn't going your way, but it will also look snappy for your trip's Insta pics. Need a tutorial? Beauty blogger Jenny Buchanan has an easy how-to on this for short-haired women here, and if you've got long locks, hairstylist Alexsis Mae has a YouTube video here for braiding your fringe this way. Sometimes the sole motivation for a braid is because of oily or unwashed hair, so pair the style with some of the NuMe Clean N' Mean Dry Shampoo Powder if you want to camouflage dirty roots! It's TSA approved (less than 3.4 oz), so you won't have to check a bag to bring it!
Messy Beach Curls
Vacations are a time for beach waves to take center stage, even if you aren't at the actual beach. Create mermaid-level waves with the NuMe Classic Curling Wand Pearl. The key to maximizing waves to vacation heights is alternating the direction you wrap hair around the barrel. Letting your hair air dry before using the wand is another option for keeping the texture beachy. Be sure to travel with a heat protectant to spray before hot tool usage like our Watch Me Werk Thermal Heat Protectant, which is also capable of making its way through security at the airport clocking in right at 3.4 ounces.
