Vacation Planning: Spring & Summer Hair

The time for Spring Break and Summer vacations is swiftly approaching which means that it’s almost time to start thinking about your travel style. One of the things that I love about vacations is playing the part of a vacationing fashionista – Breaking out my resort gear, simplifying my beauty routine, and spending all my time in sandals & bathing suits. I keep boxes of vacation gear on the upper shelves of my closet filled with everything from bath suits, sarongs, and wet suits to colorful maxi dresses, sundresses, and bathing suit cover-ups.

In this three-part series I’ll discuss some of the most fun parts of getting away from it all – (1) Mixing up your go-to hair styles, (2) Changing your beauty routine to keep things simple, and finally (3) Styling & packing for your trip.

If you’re staying at a nice resort or aren’t the type to leave home without your tools here are some hairstyles to try out for your next vacation – Master Using Your Curling Iron In 3 Easy Steps from Refinery 29.

  2. Thanks for all the great hair links. I can’t wait to wear resort wear this summer when I go on vacay. I don’t have a go-to hairstyle for vacations, but I totally should have one.

  3. All this is awesome — thanks for sharing these links and resources! I have to confess that I go suuuuuuuper low-maintenance while on vacay; I don’t usually bother to do anything functional with my hair, but these pics are inspiring me to do something prettier than my usual sloppy bun. 🙂

    • Confession – This post was half to inspire myself to do something other than a sloppy bun! 🙂

      • Bhahahaha — that’s awesome. I’m rocking the sloppy bun today (so I don’t even have the vacay excuse), but I’m glad to know I’m in good company on vacation hairstyles. 🙂

  4. Amazing hair styles! Love the details of them… reallu cute!
