Match the look - Holiday hair: Wild vs. Sleek

  • v/s
Wild or Sleek?

It's the best time of year! Whether you're off on a city break soaking up the local culture, or hitting a dreamy beach doing nothing at all, vacation time is sacred. The thing is, how do you play it, hairstyle wise? Will you be a free-spirited wild child or a glamorous globetrotter?

On the wild side

The style: Fun and relaxed, it's time to take a real breather and give your hair the opportunity to live it up too! This style works to drive home your carefree and funky vacation personality.


The hairstyle: Loving all things natural, this hairstyle is all about looking like you're low maintenance. Think less is more. But, to achieve that ultimate laid back look without looking like you tried to hand, you'll need a helping hand from L'OréalBeach Waves, a texturizing salt water spray for that sought after on-trend beachy hair effect, without the rough touch!


What the editors say: It's become our beach go-to favourite – We love the less is more mantra. Great hold and shape while still looking natural. Hard to beat for those long summer days at the beach!


Super sleek

The style: This slicked back style really works to emphasise your face's finest assets. Putting the focus on your features, the sleek look is a hot favourite on the runway, and for good reason.


The hairstyle: It's all about applying L'Oréal Extreme Splash Styling Gel. Good for all hair types, it delivers that wet-look, shiny finish without any residue. Enriched with shining agents and styling polymers, this gel will help continue that 'just out of the pool', sexy look well into the night.


What the editors say: Go for glam and dare to achieve that provocative shine. Rock it with a red carpet style dress or a casual shorts and crisp white shirt combo for a fresher look. You can even push the boat out with a wet look ballerina bun!

Who are you this summer? The wild child or the serious slicker?
