My name is Peter Gray.
00:10
I'm a hairdresser, and today we're going to show you
00:12
how to create luxurious beach hair.
00:14
For me, creating perfect beach hair,
00:16
it's all about not using hair spray.
00:19
I like it to feel nice, I like it to smell nice.
00:22
The first thing to do is to damp the hair down
00:24
or work on freshly shampooed and conditioned hair.
00:28
I really like to use the Shu Uemura Ample Angora Mousse.
00:31
It's really important to get this down to the roots.
00:34
The key is to apply it at the root area
00:37
and then comb it through with a wide-tooth comb
00:39
mid-length to ends.
00:41
Dry the hair thoroughly, invert the head,
00:44
and just blast the hair off.
00:49
Get your hair 80 to 90 percent dry,
00:52
section off the hair into rough, loose sections
00:55
and twist it up into Zulu knots.
00:57
You can use bobby pins at this point to secure the hair.
01:00
Just use a soft diffuser to dry them off,
01:01
release the knots and shake the hair free.
01:04
Invert the head again, and really get
01:06
that wild, loose texture.
01:09
Once that's done, I like to apply a little bit
01:11
of the Shu Uemura oil.
01:13
I just gives the hair a real, natural sheen,
01:15
takes out the frizziness, and give you a bit
01:17
of a summer glow.
01:18
One of the real big trade secrets I can let you in on
01:21
is Oribe dry texturizing spray.
01:23
It's literally volume in a can.
01:26
The final finishing touch I like to apply
01:28
is a little bit of the Oribe gold pomade.
01:31
Apply to the parting area and then squeeze the remainder
01:33
just through the ends through the tips of the hair.
01:36
It'll give you that real sun kissed, finished look.
01:39
And there you have it.
01:40
Easily achieved dry beach hair
01:41
that you can refresh day after day.
01:44
Nice and easy to do yourself at home.
01:46
Enjoy.
