Boho Waves- a hair post

A few weeks ago I received Bamboo Style Boho Waves Spray in the mail and have been so busy I haven't had a chance to experiment with it until now. My "little blonde sis" Olivia has been over almost every afternoon to swim and found this spray and now uses it every time she gets out of the pool and calls it "the HOBO stuff."

Olivia's favorite way to use the Bamboo Style Boho Waves Spray-go swimming for several hours, towel dry your hair and brush it to detangle, spray throughout the hair generously, crunch and tousle, twirl a few pieces around your finger and hold for a few seconds for a more defined curl, and then go to Braum's

I decided to do a messy updo using the Bamboo Style Boho Waves Spray along with a few other products.

I blow dried my hair first. I did that until it was barely damp and then let it air dry the rest of the way. I have naturally curly, thick hair that can sometimes be coarse so I applied the Bed Head After Party to smooth my hair, a small amount is all that is needed if your hair has a similar texture. I then curled certain pieces of my hair with a wand, leaving the ends uncurled and then pulling at the hair once it is released from the wand to straighten it a bit. I didn't want it to look curled just wavy and textured. I did that to any piece that wasn't already wavy. I left the front pieces straight. I then sprayed the Bamboo Style Boho Waves Spray and then sprayed the Sebastian Volupt Spray throughout my hair. I then slept on it which gave it a messier lived in look which I like, sprayed Suave Dry Shampoo throughout my roots at the crown for more volume and lift. I then pulled it back into a pony tail and looped it and pulled out several strands to make it messy. I also left the straight pieces out in the front.

summer = mint

I always go neutral in the winter with my makeup, but as soon as summer hits my adventurous spirit returns and I am all about fun makeup. Last summer, I bought I cheap Wal-Mart eyeliner in a pale light blue color and added it to the corner of my eyes and in my lower water line. And I went searching for it today and realized I have no idea where it went. So I started looking for a new fun eyeliner and saw this mint green one by Nars. It instantly reminded me of mint chocolate chip ice cream and Goldie Hawn and so I bought it. If you like any of the above I feel like you should probably buy it and then join me at Braum's!

The best ice cream in the world

How great is that dress?
