Great hon­ey­moon hair can be yours

For­eign lands mean dif­fer­ent rules for hair

The Covington News - - Society -

Aruba, Ja­maica, Ber­muda, Ba­hamas — th­ese trop­i­cal par­adises are some of the top hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tions for cou­ples. Chances are, where there is soft, sandy beaches, palm trees sway­ing, and lush fo­liage, you’ll find new­ly­weds bask­ing in the sun.

Car­ribbean, South Pa­cific, and Mediter­ranean get­aways can be ter­rific for bond­ing and en­joy­ing the first few days of ro­mance as a mar­ried cou­ple. But they can be chal­leng­ing for women look­ing to main­tain beau­ti­ful post-wed­ding hair. That’s be­cause hu­mid­ity and salt-filled breezes are as com­mon in the trop­ics as pic­turesque sun­sets and steel drum bands.

That’s why top celebrity hair stylist Ellin LaVar of­fers tips to fight frizz and make peace with hard to man­age hair for your hon­ey­moon.

• Don’t fight the tex­ture. Choose a style that al­lows you to wear your hair nat­u­rally.

It will cut down on time and frus­tra­tion. Your hon­ey­moon should be care­free, not spent in front of a ho­tel mir­ror try­ing to tame your hair.

• When in doubt, braid it out. Braids are al­ways fun and ca­sual. Twist or braid hair at night af­ter ap­ply­ing gel or set­ting lo­tion. Loosen in the morn­ing for a soft, long-last­ing wave.

• Where’s the curl, girl? Women with curly hair should em­brace their nat­u­ral hair tex­ture. Use a prod­uct that is de­signed to com­bat frizz along with a prod­uct that en­hances nat­u­ral curl. Light styling gels like Liq­uidGlass or Liq­uidMo­tion from Ellin LaVar Tex­turesTM al­low you to tame frizz with­out grease or heav­i­ness.

• Twist and go. Chignons and messy buns are al­ways a quick an­swer to bru­tal sum­mer hu­mid­ity. From the beach to an evening out on the town, twists, buns and pony­tails can be adorned with flow­ers, jew­elry and other fun ac­ces­sories.

• Sun pro­tec­tion starts at the top. Don’t for­get to pro­tect hair from the sun! Ap­ply a deep con­di­tioner af­ter swim­ming in chlo­rine or salt wa­ter and tuck un­der a hat. The heat will make the con­di­tioner pen­e­trate deeper and will keep hair from be­com­ing dry and brit­tle.
