The Secret to Air Dried Hair

28 June

Blow dryers in any kind of 100+ degree temps… it’s just not happening in my world.  Actually I didn’t even pack styling tools for the week I was in Palm Springs.  And quite honestly, if I didn’t take photos of myself for a living (I can’t believe I even just typed that sentence because sometimes just the thought of that previous remark is just so SO not me) I would probably never pack styling tools on vacay period.  But one major plus of the crazy hot desert heat is nature’s quick air drying.  Which, with the right products, has been working wonders in my favor.  This trip I tested out a new to me waves texture lotion from Oribe that I’m now obsessed with.  Even now back from the desert, I’m trying to recreate that straight out of the pool air dried, “piecey” carefree look.  One tip I learned from my hair dresser a while back when it comes to air drying, comb your hair in the shower but don’t touch it with a comb or brush when you get out.  Instead, I just run my fingers through it with some product and let my hair do it’s thing.  And my pro tip, if the air drying doesn’t quite work just throw a hat on your head.

I’d also like to note that I found my perfect summer bikini.  This high-waisted style from Solid and Striped (The Bridgette) is so playful and fun!  I bought it in both this pink gingham (who am I? not my usual style but felt appropriate for Palm Springs!) and black.

And, this tank?  A summer essential.  I own and wear it in gray and white non-stop.  It’s just that perfect basic.
