THE INVITE: Seaside Soiree
TRY: Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
Craft a glossy, slicked-back bun by coating hair with this weightless oil before hitting the beach. The conditioning formula—packed with a tress-taming blend of argan, coconut, macadamia, sweet almond, safflower seed, and grape-seed oil—instantly smooths locks and adds brilliant shine. Also, the heat from the sun will help the nourishing oils penetrate the hair shaft, creating a strand-softening treatment.
THE INVITE: Backyard Barbecue Bash
TRY: Drybar Mai Tai Spritzer Sea Salt Spray
This sea salt-infused spray delivers effortless, back-from-the-beach waves—but better. Unlike raw saltwater, which can damage and dry out your hair, this spray is fortified with soothing avocado oil and algae to keep strands silky. Mist on this texturizer before blow-drying for wind-swept body and matted grip even when there’s no sea in sight.
THE INVITE: Posh Poolside Party
TRY: Alterna Caviar CC Cream
When sun, salt, and chlorine have taken their toll on your hair, tend to your mane with this multitasking treatment. This UV-shielding cream boasts 10 benefits such as moisture, manageability, and more with smoothing caviar extract and protective antioxidants. Rake a small dollop through wet hair before styling, and finish with another drop on dry strands to create a polished, sky-high ponytail.
THE INVITE: Weekend Away
TRY: Living Proof Prime Style Extender
Grab your suitcase and pack this primer for perfectly sleek hair that’ll last through Sunday. The silicone-free formula preps strands, enhancing styling product performance and reducing the need for touch-ups. Ideal for all hair types, this feather-light cream repels dirt and oil, making any style stay put longer. Try twisting hair into a fishtail braid for a cool, boho effect, and tote a mini dry shampoo to make it last even longer.
