Beach Inspired Hair | Mark Hill Big Tease BBF & Beach Babe Sea Salt Wave Spray ♥

 I always wear my hair down but as the spring is here and the summer months are fast approaching I look for ways to style my hair effortlessly, whilst keeping on trend of course. I really like using sea salt sprays in my hair during the warmer months to create that messy beach hair look, perfect for teaming with floral crowns and accessories to give a laid-back, easy hairstyle that looks effortlessly done. 

 I recently got my hands on Mark Hill Holiday Hair Beach Babe Sea Salt Wave Spray* and couldn't wait to try it out as it smells amazing - seriously, the scent of it just reminds me of holidays and anything that makes me think of warm sands and clear waters is a winner in my book! 

I sprayed the product liberally on my dry hair - the product, however, can also be used on damp hair to get naturally drying waves. When the product dried in my hair different feel hard and unmanageable like other sea salt sprays have made it feel over the years, it just simply felt and looked like, my hair had be tousled by the sea air and the sand, the exact look I was going for.

To give my hair an extra bit of va va voom I used the Mark Hill Big Tease BFF Backcombing Brush* to give some volume to the roots and to style my fringe. Now I can't say I've ever gotten on well with backcombing brushes before, finding their small handles quite hard to keep a grip on whilst trying to style my hair, but this hot pink brush, which resembles two combs stuck together, was so easy to use and it worked really well with creating volume, along with some dry shampoo of course.

I'm super impressed with these two Mark Hill products and shall be using them both lots over the coming months. I just love the messy beach vibe hair look, it's so easy to create and quick too.

The Mark Hill Big Tease BFF is £6.99 and the Beach Babe Wave Spray is €8.49, both being available in major pharmacies nationwide.

Are you a fan of the messy, beach hair look?

  2. What a fun way to celebrate that the weather is getting warmer--with hair! I am not good at styling my hair at all, so I really have no idea what products are great. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love that this spray doesn't make your hair hard! I can't stand the sprays that make me feel like I'm wearing a helmet instead of my hair. Your hair looks gorgeous with the spray and the flowers are such a fun touch!

  4. Wow very pretty! :) I love a nice little beach tease/hair. It is just so perfect for the occasion and that it gives your hair a nice volume boost to it. For me , my hair is quite straight and almost flat so I think this product would work great for me. P.S. love the flower head band.

    1. Thank you Michelle! Oh I think it would work for you, you'd just scrunch and twirl it a bit and the backcombing brush would really be a help :)
