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.
