Summer is wrapping up right before our eyes, but that doesn’t mean the heat will be subsiding any time soon. At Calista, we know you love your heat styling tools (that’s why we make them!), but sometimes, it can be nice to give your hair a few days off and try out some simple, no-heat styles that still leave you looking polished and stylish. Check out some of our favorites below!
No-Heat Beach Waves
When it comes to summer styles, there’s nothing more classic than beachy waves. To achieve them without using heat, apply some styling product with a bit of hold to slightly damp hair (we recommend Jousse Gel & Mousse Hybrid for a long-lasting hold). Flip head over and then gather hair into a tight twist. Pin over the top of your head and let dry overnight. When you unpin in the morning, you’ll have a loose, beachy wave. Add some Marine Salt Mist to lock in extra texture and a beachy scent!
Half up, half down styles are a great go-to for those days when you’re working with unwashed hair. After applying some dry shampoo (Day Off is our must-have lightweight formula), gather a section of hair from one side at the front and twist up. Lay twist across your crown, secure with a bobby pin or small clip. and repeat this on the other side. Tuck the ends underneath the first twist and secure with another pin or leave ends free flowing for a more laid-back look. Spray with a medium-hold hairspray (Embellish Finishing Spray or Duet Prep + Post Multi-Use Hairspray are great options) to secure your style.
Texturized & Tousled
This look is ideal for shorter styles! With a texturizing hair product like 02 Texturizer Spray or Embellish Texturizing Definer, tousle hair with your fingers for an effortless look that still has a stylized feel. For extra volume, take small sections of hair and create individual curls by twisting the hair around your finger and adding a little more product to help the style stay in place!
Believe it or not, a straightener isn’t the only way to achieve silky sleek style. Apply a smoothing, anti-frizz product, like Achieve 10 Styling Cream, all over your damp hair. Comb it out straight and let it air-dry for a relaxed, effortless look. For extra smoothing, apply Jousse Mend Masque in the shower. The rich formula penetrates strands to add sleekness and shine.
