The Glitch: Low-Profile Styling
Beaches and pool parties are no place for curling irons, blow-dryers and bags full of products.
The Fix: There is nothing classier or more beautiful than short hair slicked back. If you have long hair, let it go. Longer hair benefits from the natural minerals in an ocean or lake, which can give it a thick, ropy texture. Once the hair dries you can break the wave with your fingers for a softer look.
The Products: Short hair: Charles Worthington London Smart Fixx H20 Styling Strips, $13. Long hair: John Frieda Sheer Blonde Tousled Tresses Fine-Mist Wax, $10.
