“My client Lucia likes to wear her hair with a ‘LIVED IN’ feeling, so I had to create a quick, easy way to achieve it for her.” —KMS California Hair Stylist Lori Panarello

Summer hair equals carefree hair – the kind of hair that looks like it may have been styled by an ocean breeze. We all know it usually takes more than beach lounging to achieve perfectly tousled waves, but KMS California Hair Stylist Lori Panarello has shown us an effortless summer style that can be created in the time it would take to do blowout.

Great for all lengths, this is the perfect way to send your clients off with something other than the same old. Talk them through the steps as you work and they’ll appreciate the lesson that they can try out at home. And make sure to tell them about the products you used – they may want to take home a dry wax spray so they can refresh the look with a quick scrunch.
