Summer is finally here and that means beach waves season is on! This month I teamed up again with my favorite hairdresser David Benjamin Bending (you could read about our previous collaboration here) to go for beach waves, known also as Mermaid waves, or an undone wavy look.
Benji (as that is how we all call him) comes from a hairdressing family and started his carrier already in 2008 in Australia. He gained his professional experience while working for Noddys, Mahogany, and Toni&Guy for many years. Benji is also frequently booked for fashion shooting for magazines, or he provides his styling services for TV and fashion shows in Hungary.
Recently, he has opened his first hair salon – Social Hair Studio which is more like a sanctuary or a place you come to relax and charge your batteries. The shop’s interior was carefully designed in a way it’s almost like you’re on holiday. Inspiration was taken from the Australian outback and desert colors of Marocco mixed with Mediterranean tones. The name of this place is not random either, it feels like you can come there and feel like in someone’s living room where you can drink coffee or tea and chill for a moment.
Benji is working only with Australian hair products – Kevin Murphy that are Sulfate-free and Ammonia-free. They are not tested on animals plus this brand is using OWP ocean waste products, meaning they reuse plastic found in the ocean. It is worth mentioning that Kevin Murphy cosmetics don’t give fume or headaches that are for hairdressers and also clients (especially when you dye your hair) a groundbreaking.
Curious about how to achieve beach waves in a few easy steps?
Step 1. Wash your hair using Kevin Murphy Plumping Wash and Conditioner.
Step 2. Use a few pumps of Motion Lotion and Sea Salt spray (called Hair Resort) on dry hair.
Step 3. Use The Wave Clips in an inch wide sections and then place them inside the clips, continuing up towards the crown. Make sure to spray enough Hair Resort on each section then use heat over to secure waves.
Step 4. Use the wax spray – Bedroom Hair to give a more tossed look.
Step 5. Finish it using the root lift Powder Puff.
