With summer just around the corner, we can take notes from the quintessential California girl. She is the poster child for effortless, beachy, no-hassle, sun-kissed hair. Ombre is here to stay for yet another season, but gets an upgrade with a more subtle, balayaged look. If you can’t spend endless hours sitting poolside or strolling on the beach, fake it by adding lighter pieces around the face for a natural, day in the sun look.
Styling Aids: Oribe Surfcomber Mousse, Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray, Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray and SACHAJUAN Ocean Mist

If You Haven’t Already, Try This!
One thing that I love about a deep side part is that it’s versatile and versatility is something I always consider when it comes to hair. You can tailor it to fit your personality, with a loose wavy style, pulled back into a low bun, or a braided ponytail. It seems to be one of the staple hairstyles showing up on the runways, whether it be spring or fall. You can play around with a messy texture or look effortlessly glamorous with sleeker straight strands.

To Put it Bluntly
It’s that time of year again, new year and new you. Looking for a change that may not actually require that much change? Looking for a change that can be incredibly drastic and will leave 2013 in the dust? Meet the blunt cut.
I will dub it the perfect haircut because it looks good on all face shapes, and can be applied to almost any hair length. You can keep your hair long, and gain a hard, sleek edge that feels equally classic and current. Or, you can make the big chop for instant chicness. Men, women, and children alike can enjoy the blunt cut. So to put it bluntly, go ahead already.

Behind the Hair
Hair by Oribe
Oribe styled his longtime friend Naomi Campbell for the 38th anniversary issue of Vogue Brasil. Oribe played up her lighter, sun-kissed hair by giving her a beachy look for the cover and went with voluminous texture for the inside spread.
Get the Look:
1. For the cover style, apply Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse to wet hair and let air dry for incredible crunch-free waves with shine.
2. To take the cover look from beachy to bold, use Thick Dry Finishing Spray to build up larger-than-life volume.
3. Spray with Soft Dry Conditioner Spray to give locks a beautiful, silky finish.
