4. Side braid it up Sister! Picture this: You've just gotten to the beach, wind is blowing and suddenly, your hair takes on a life of its own and decides to spring free from your ponytail, covering your face is sweaty, sticky strands. Sound familiar? We thought so. Nothing is more annoying than having hair stuck to your face absorbing a mixture of sunscreen, sea water and sweat.Gross. A side braid is cute, easy to do and quick. Add a little sea salt or hair spray to secure any fly aways. Keeping you stylish while sweaty!
5. The Good Morning Pony! Some mornings at the beach are meant to be spent lounging. If you’re looking for a get up and go summer look this is it! When you wake up after a night of “relaxing”, gather all of your hair into a high pony. I’m talking center on top of your head, HIGH pony tail. Think Bring It On pony tails. Once your Pony is up high, smooth out the roots, give the base a sleek finish. Loop your hair band three times (depending on thickness) to secure your Pony in place. Feel free to bobby pin or hairspray back any pieces that are falling. Sprits the ends of your pony tail with a little dry shampoo or sea salt for texture. Ready to go!

Melanoma diagnoses have risen nearly 2 percent a year since 2000, and the number keeps increasing. Sunscreen is our only protect from UVA And UVB rays, however Sunscreen is not our save all.
“Sunscreen is not a magic bullet,” said Dr. Steven Q. Wang, director of dermatologic surgery and dermatology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Basking Ridge, N.J., and a spokesman for the Skin Cancer Foundation, which receives funding from sunscreen manufacturers. “It’s just one of the defenses against the harmful effect of UV radiation, and that message gets lost.”
Language on sunscreen is commonly misconstrued. And this summer we will start to see an improvement with the use of the language and the information provided to the consumer will be more clear.
According to the NY Times, "Use of the label “broad spectrum protection” now means the sunscreen has been proved to protect against both UVA and UVB rays, although the UVA protection may be comparatively weaker. Any product with an SPF lower than 15 must carry a label warning that it will not protect against skin cancer. Products cannot claim to be waterproof, only water-resistant, and labels must note a time limit of either 40 or 80 minutes before the sunscreen is ineffective.”
Make sure you are careful and pay attention to packaging when buying sunscreen this summer. Keep your skin safe!
Things to Remember:
SPF 15 sunscreens filter out 93 percent of UVB rays, while SPF 30 protects against 97 percent and SPF 50 98 percent. But remember, it is important for the sunscreen to include broad-spectrum protection that also shields adequately against UVA.
Sunscreen should be applied one-half hour before going outside, giving the skin time to absorb it. Because sunscreen tends to be broken down over time by the sun, and rubbed or washed off with sweating and water exposure, it should be reapplied at least every two hours outdoors, and immediately after swimming or heavy sweating.

Tousled Curls- A great look for any occasion day or night, heres how to create a timeless tousled curls style. Shampoo and Condition the hair with something nourishing but not too heavy. We recommend something like Davines’ Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle shampoo and conditioner, it improves compatibility and helps make the hair structure even. Before blow drying, add a palm sized dollop of a volumizing mousse like the Volume Boosting Mousse by Davines. Really work the mousse in at the roots and mid shaft of the hair to provide lift while drying. We recommend applying a little bit of a serum, like Davines’ Invisible Serum, to the ends to help smooth out any frizziness and to provide a little slip while blow drying. Blow dry with a smaller round brush. Depending on the length of your hair you'll want to use a brush with a diameter from 1/2” to 2 1/2”. Remember the diameter of the brush will be the diameter of the curl, so think about how tight you would like the curl to be when determining your brush.
Blow dry by smoothing out the mid shaft, lifting the hair to create volume at the root, really curling the ends with brush and once the each strand is dry wind the hair up in the brush and apply heat from the blow dryer for 7 seconds then release heat and allow hair and brush to cool before removing brush. When dry, if needed curl pieces with a curling iron the same diameter as the brush you used to blow dry. Spray with Medium Hold Anti-Humidity hair spray and your off!
