There is a fine line between beautiful beachy waves and a windblown mess. But somehow supermodel hair is always effortlessly gorgeous after a day on the beach.
Gisele Bündchen is the master of the beachy waves look—not just in the magazines, but when she is spotted on the beaches of Brazil. Sports Illustrated rookies Jessica Pérez and Nina Agdal have long and pretty tousled tresses, as do real life surfer girls Elle Macpherson and Marisa Miller.
To get the look, we turn to Frederic Fekkai for his expertise on the windblown summertime look—such an expert that he created an entire line of products around it called the Summer Hair Collection. Each products costs $25 and four products are all you need for the complete look.
Our favorite is the Beach Waves Spray—the anytime, anywhere product that can go on dry or damp hair. Use your fingers to shape or tousle your waves, and you are ready to take that beach look from day to night. It’s the ultimate beach bag essential, if you can only bring one.
If frizz is a problem for you, combine the Beach Waves Spray with the Smooth Sailing Anti-Frizz Cream—a lightweight formula that not only fights frizz, but also adds shine and blocks the hair from absorbing more moisture.
The Cooling Shine Mist is almost a sunscreen for the hair that helps provide UV protection so you can protect your highlights, or your natural hair from sun bleaching.
When the day is done and it’s time to get the saltwater washed away, the After Sun Daily Mask is a deep conditioning formula that protects from drying and color fade. It will give your hair the nourishment it needs, and get you ready to do it all again tomorrow.
