Beach wave hair is a look I personally love. Whenever I style my hair like this I get compliments. I was in Vegas last week on vacation at the Aria Hotel and Casino. I went into the restroom in the casino and there were a few women freshening up. One of them was admiring my beach waves and asked me how I get the look. It’s not the first time I’ve been asked this question so I referred her to our website and here ya go!

Tools needed – A one inch flat iron and a wide hair pick comb

Products neededKevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray and Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine

Step 1. Heat flat iron to a medium temperature. Start with straight clean hair. I use Keven Murphy Hydrate-me rinse and wash (shampoo and conditioner) to wash my hair. Use a clip to pull the top section of hair back so you can start on the bottom pieces.

Step 2.  Grab about a one inch piece of hair. Clasp the flat iron on your hair closest to the head. Twist the flat iron one time and move flatiron down until you are about half way down that strand of hair. Still having that same piece of hair start where you ended off and finish it all way down leaving about one inch at the bottom. Repeat with a new strand of hair. Once that section of the hair is complete, let the hair out of the clip and do the upper section.

Step 3. Once all of your hair  is curled, use your wide pick comb and gently brush through your hair. Do not brush until all the hair is curled. if you brush it too early you will end up with flat curls.

Step 3. Use your Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray and spray all over you hair scrunching your hair at the same time. I use about 6 sprays for my whole head.

Step 4. Finish off with Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine to give it the perfect shine. A little of the shimmer shine goes a long way. I use only 2 sprays for my whole head!

This is much easier than it seems. Give it a try.  Natalie Warner is doing my hair in these photos. She is a pro when it comes to hair.  She works at the coolest salon that I have personally ever been to called Ulysses. It is down town Salt Lake City  at 629 South State Street. Everybody that works there is awesome and they sell Kevin Murphy products there.  I am really picky when it comes to hair and I for sure think that Kevin Murphy makes the best products.

Hope this helps you get the perfect beach waves! Comment if this worked for you or if you have any questions!

Spend 10 minutes before your bedtime routine on refocusing your energy. Find a quite place in your home and focus on calming your mind. Leave all your worries and stresses at the door, allow your mind to drift to a happy place. Go through a few sun salutations, downward dog, warrior pose, or whatever stretches you need. If you need some assistance play calming music in the background.  Or just lay on your yoga mat and focus on breathing and the wonderful things you have to be grateful for!

2- Slather up

Lavender is a well known herb for calming and aiding in sleep. While SaraJane and I were in California recently we hadn’t slept for a couple days, we lathered ourselves in lavender oil and I think we may have knocked everyone in the house out with how strong the aroma was from our oil party. It works ya’ll! Lights out.

3- No Mo Electronics

The lights from our TV screens and phones tricks our mind into thinking it’s day time. So, make a cutoff time for watching TV and checking emails. I feel hypocritical writing this one because I’m the worst about not having my phone near me at all times, but I know it makes a difference. This is one I will be working on.

4- Go to the dark side

Our minds are powerful machines and constantly taking information in from our environments. As you are prepping for the nighttime dim the lights and let your mind and body prepare.

5- Avoid Diet C

I love my DC just as much as you, but I also know it is not good for me and my body loves me so much more when I’m not drinking it. If you have troubles sleeping, try only having your caffeine in the morning or before 2. This will give your body plenty of time to burn off the caffeine consumed.

Get those Zzz’s in, it’s good for you!

With summer just around the corner tank tops are in, arm jiggle is out! The arms can be the most difficult place to lose fat for many and it’s so important to remember to focus on lifting and toning rather than just cardio. While cardio is still so very important, you wont get the results you want without strength training! Go grab your weights! I bought 8lb. weights, 5lb. weights, and a large medicine ball from Target for only $29!! If it’s as hard for to get to the gym some days as it is for me then go make this purchase.

3 sets, 15 reps each, rotating exercises.

Exercise One:

Plank with Shoulder lifts- I love this exercise because it targets all the muscles. You should feel the muscles contracting in the biceps, triceps, and core(obliques, back, shoulders.) You can use your heaviest weight for this.

Advanced option- If you want to bring this to the next level after lifting on both sides go down to a push up.

Equipment: 10-15lb dumbbells, ( I wouldnt go heavier than 15 lbs. but do what works for you!)

Exercise Two:

Bicep curls and press- Hold two dumbbells at your side and perform a traditional curl. Once the dumbbells reach chest height continue to press upwards overhead while rotating your palms away from your body. Hold overhead for one second, slowly return to the bottom, and repeat.

Equipment: 10-15 lb weights

 Exercise Three:

Shoulder raises-Hold a 5 lb. dumbell in each hand, arms at side, palms in. Abs contracted and shoulder blades down. Raise arms up to side, until the elbows align with shoulders, elbows slightly bent. Lower arms to starting position and repeat.

Youre one step closer to being swimsuit ready!!
