We all love the look of long beach waves for the summer months, which may be why the “Botticelli” hairstyle is so popular this season. The style is characterized by lengthy, flowing, effortless-looking waves that brings mermaids to mind.
The Botticelli style is named after the legendary Italian Renaissance painter, Sandro Botticelli, who often depicted the subjects of his paintings with the waves that were common back then. One of his most famous works that you’ve probably seen before is “La Nascita di Venere” (“The Birth of Venus.”)
But to those without the length, have no fear because the style is extra-cute in the short version, coined the Botticelli Bob. It’s a popular style this summer in particular because of celebrities like Kerry Washington, Bella Hadid, and Laura Harrier, who each rock their own version of this wavy bob effortlessly. Not to mention, it’s incredibly easy to get the look in the salon or at home, and the process is made even easier with Sebastian Professional’s product line.
Besides being simple to achieve and easy to maintain, the Botticelli bob keeps you cool and stylish in the summer heat. And don’t worry about the humidity causing a bit of frizz because it’ll look intentional. This style will also help to keep your hair healthy all summer long because you can maximize the hydration while minimizing the use of hot tools.
How To Get the Look:
- Prep the hair with Sebastian Professional No.Breaker for damage repair and volume and Sebastian Professional Potion 9 for moisture.
- Create two or three braids depending on hair thickness.
- Sleep in the braids overnight or spray them with Sebastian Professional Trilliant for heat protection. Heat the braids with a hair dryer or a flat iron and let them cool.
- Then, take out the braids, gently brush through your hair with your fingers and enjoy!
