While we were in L.A. I got to have my hair styled by David Babaii who is the celeb stylist for Kate Hudson, Gweneth Paltrowl, and lots of others!! He did a ton of celebrities hair for the Golden Globes last Sunday and he recreated the beach waves he did on Gweneth that night. I LOVE learning to hair tricks from stylists like David and he taught me the coolest tricks ever, it was like seriously heaven for me getting to watch him and pick his brain! He used a ghd Soft Wand for the beach waves and no product at all so its really easy, there are just a few tricks he does so be sure to watch and see because they are so easy but total game changers!
Ghd is also offering Barefoot Blonde readers 20% off their purchase PLUS a free shine spray and paddle brush with your purchase when you use code ghdBAREFOOTBLONDE ! Which is pretty awesome because their hot tools really are the best, once you try them you really can't go back to using anything else! (plus their hot tools make this adorable sound when they turn on and it sounds like a magic wand or something haha you will see when you try it :)
I wore my beach waves to the beach later that day and David and I were laughing because I got so many compliments on them! Too bad it was so windy and wind always makes curls fall a bit but even with the wind and ocean draft they stayed pretty good. Atticus kept trying to eat the sand and after trying to stop him 10,000,000 times we finally just let him eat it (bad parents haha) but it was too funny to watch because he was just loving it. We have been to the beach with him quite a bit but this was the first time he really played in the sand and it was so cute! He is seriously such a riot. Some days he acts so mature, I don't even know how to explain it but it will feel like we are just best friends hanging out and thats kind of how that day at the beach felt.
Hope you like the tutorial!!
