Styling Rules:
Don’t fight the curl! If you have textured hair, embrace its natural beauty and live up the last of the beachy look. Don’t get bogged down with fighting the natural force, let it run free this weekend.
Add a braid! Whether hair is: wet or dry, curly or straight - adding a braid is the easiest way to wrangle your hair without heat.
Try a top knot! You know you’ve always wanted to try it and this style works wonders on day old hair, now is the time!
Most importantly: Less fuss, more fun! Enjoy the last moments of summer out and about, not in front of the mirror!

Packing List:`
Dry Shampoo: If you’re not a convert yet, let this magical spray into your bag and it will find its way into your heart! It is a must-have whether you’re wearing your hair up or down. Dry shampoo will prolong your blowout, volumize your tresses, add the perfect structure for a messy bun or perfect your pony.

Bobbies pins: Always hide a few of these in your makeup bag or purse. You can add them to your hair as an accessory or use them in a pinch when your hair just won’t behave! Perfect for fly aways and securing a braid.
Oil: Great things come in small packages and with oil; a little goes a long way and makes a huge difference. If space is an issue or you’re worried about getting that carry-on through security; pick up a travel-sized option.
