Kate Winslet Beachy Hair Tutorial Just in Time for Spring

Kate Winslet "Divergent" Los Angeles Premiere

Today marks the first day of spring, so what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather (for the east coast, anyway) than with a beachy hair how-to. I love this natural-looking, messy-in-a-good-way beachy hairstyle Renato Campora created for Kate Winslet’s Los Angeles Premiere of Divergent. Here’s how to recreate it:

Step 1: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse, $6.50 on clean, wet hair.

Step 2: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion, $6.50, concentrating on the roots to create volume, and blow-dry your hair.

Step 3: Once your hair is fully dry, use a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron to create voluminous waves by wrapping your hair around the iron.

Step 4: After letting your waves cool completely, finished the look with John Frieda Luxurious Volume All Day Hold Hairspray$6.50 to add long-lasting volume to your waves.

Pinspiration: The Five Braided Hairstyles I’m Lusting After

Confession: I’ve got a lot going on right now. Between putting an offer in on a new house (fingers crossed that it all works out!), working full time and being a toddler mom and wife, my plate is pretty full. It leaves very little time for my passion: talking about beauty, playing with products and my favorite: experimenting with fun hairstyles — especially braided hairstyles. So, in lieu of posting a fun twisted tuesday braided hairstyle I’ve created myself, I’m simply going to share photos of the five  looks I recently pinned. Lemme know what you think. Do you deem these pin worthy?

Video: Tame Your Cowlick Once and for All

I shared some tricks on how to get a better blowdry on Monday, but wanted to follow that up with this quick (it’s seconds long) video of Andrew Carruthers, education director for Sam Villa, showing me how to tame a cowlick (or strong growth pattern) at the front of your hair. All you need is your go-to blowdryer and a fine-tooth comb. The secret is about redirecting the blowdryer and using the comb to pick up every single hair.
