BRAID IT UP
Braids are an easy and chic way to jump the gap between day and night on holiday – without spending hours holed up in a hotel room glued to our straighteners.
During the day a braid will keep your hair out of the way whilst you’re on the beach. Then at night you can take your braid out and showcase your new beach waves created by the braid, or simply re-do your braid for a more polished finish.
Our favourite for summer is a side braid swept over your shoulder. Simply braid your hair at your chosen side and you’re done! You can easily make the look work for your outfit by experimenting with texture; a spray gel and comb will create a sleek look, or a little dry shampoo will give you a more romantic textured braid.
If you want some more hair to work into your braid why not try our clip in hair extension sets? Find out more about them HERE.

CHUNKY BRAIDED HEADBAND
We love having a braided headband on holiday because they have so many uses. You can wear it at the pool during the day to keep your hair out of your face, then use is as a super simple way to spice up any night hairstyle.
By applying this chunky braided headband over loose locks or adding it to a simple up-do, you can add character to an otherwise plain look. You can order yours HERE.
Don’t just leave the waves on the beach! Nothing quite says holiday hair like beautiful loose waves.
To create waves, we love using the Cloud 9 Original Wand. Simply take small sections of your hair at a time, wrap the sections round the barrel for maximum 10 seconds at a time, remove the wand, and hold the curl in your hand for a further 5 seconds before releasing the curl.
Allow the hair to cool then run your fingers through the curls before setting with some hairspray, and you’re good to go! The Cloud 9 Original Wand is available to purchase in our Bread Street boutique – RRP £120.
The best thing about waves is that they suit all hair lengths!
STAY FRIZZ FREE
The only bad thing about going somewhere really warm is that sometimes your hair can go realllllllly frizzy! Before you jet off, it’s important to be prepping your hair in the lead up to your holiday. Treat yourself to a few hair masks to make sure that your hair is in the best condition on arrival.
While you’re on hols, be sure to apply a small amount of oil to your hair while it’s damp to help prevent dry hair and frizz. All hair types are different, so always start with a tiny amount and see how much your hair needs.
Our CrownCouture oil is a beautiful leave-in argan oil serum that will leave the hair healthy looking, smooth and shiny.
Argan oil is a rich, easily absorbed emollient and excellent for use as a leave in hair moisturising/nourishing treatment. It is exceptionally rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids to help moisturise, feed and protect from free radicals. Buy your CrownCouture argan oil HERE.
