Option 1: Sexy everyday beach hair
Billy says, “Summertime hair is very carefree. This sexy beach style is a wonderful, time-saving look—it takes three to five minutes from start to finish.”
Apply a light hold styling cream (not a gel—it’s too stiff!) to the back sections. For curly hair, scrunch through with your fingers. For straight hair, smooth through with a large paddle brush.
The most important part of any hairstyle is the face-framing area. To perfect the front of the hair, apply a smoothing cream or serum and blow-dry smooth.
Allow the back sections to air-dry. Don't over-touch—the less you handle the hair, the better those areas will look as they dry on their own.
End result: The front will be smooth and the back will have a natural look and feel.
Option 2: Red carpet summertime wave
Billy says, “Having red carpet or beach wavy hair is a cinch.” This look takes a bit longer, but it’s so worth it for a breezy-but-glam style that’s ready to go out on the town … or to a baby shower!
Shampoo and condition as usual, then apply a light mousse or shaping gel.
Blow-dry hair in 2- or 3-inch sections. After each section is dry, wrap it around three or four fingers to create a barrel curl. Clip near the scalp.
When all sections of hair have been dried, use a light hold spray to set and allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove clips, finger style and use a light hold spray as needed for hold and set. For more volume, spray hair upside down and scrunch through.
