A warm, gentle wind blowing through your hair, boat rides on the water and laid back stripes are all the ingredients for a perfect summer day. Here’s how to get the look.

1/ BEACHY WAVES

THE LOOK Easily create a surfer girl look with a texturizing spray. The product is even light enough to be reapplied throughout the day. “Texture is key in creating so many … looks. Whether I’m creating nonchalant “born with it” waves or a more elegant, glamorous look…” – Guido,
Redken Creative Consultant.

GET THE LOOK Mist a salt spray, like Redken’s Fashion Waves 07, on damp hair with and air dry. Use a curling iron for a more polished style.

2/ BLUE AND WHITE STRIPES

RUNWAY INSPIRATION As temperatures rise, grab hold of fabrics that are crisp and light. Pale blue and white striped poplin shirting (a tightly woven cotton fabric), was all over the spring/summer runways. Elongate the silhouette and keep your body cool at the same time!

BEST FOR YOUNG GUNS Free spirited bra tops paired with bathrobe coats or worn with board shorts are tailor made for the millennial set.

BEST FOR EVERYDAY Sporty chic vibes at Alexander Wang focused on deconstructed pinstripe tailoring – mixing masculine and feminine with California cool.

BEST FOR WORK Unlike a casual chambray shirt, a buttoned up blouse with appliqué or laser cut details that turns pinstripes on their head is just right for work.
