How-To: Beachy Waves with KMS California

Lauren Quick | August 10, 2015 | 7:57 AM

Beachy getaways should be paired with low-maintenance style.

Alicia Kiwacz and Daisy Rosania, stylists at Aurelio Salon in Howell and Toms River, N.J., have a few essentials they recommend to beach-bound clients.

Kiwacz says a styling product, hairspray and anti-humidity product should be all beach bums need. Her recommendations:

  • Styling product: KMS California Hair Play Playable Texture. Creates texture and can be reworked any time (think post-beach, pre-dinner). Doesn't make hair sticky.
  • Hairspray: KMS California Free Shape 2-in-1 Styling + Finishing Spray. Straightening and curling spray for dry hair; use before hot tools section by section.
  • Anti-humidity product: KMS California Hair Stay Spray Seal. Blocks humidity and frizz for 24-hours with a shiny, weightless finish and heat protection.

STEP 1: Shampoo and condition (optional), then comb out.

STEP 2: Spray KMS California Hair Play Sea Salt Spray followed by KMS California Free Shape 2-in-1 Styling + Finishing Spray. 

STEP 3: Blowdry hair up to 80 percent dry with fingers or let air-dry. 

STEP 4: Spray sea salt spray again, then continue to dry until 100-percent dry.

STEP 5: Wand-curl the hair in 2 to 3-inch sections. Leave 1-2 inches of ends out for a natural beach wave. 

STEP 6: Run fingers through hair and spray with KMS California Free Shape 2-in-1 Styling + Finishing Spray.
