Gillian Zinser: Best Beachy Hair in Hollywood!

Take it from Gillian Zinser (she plays the sultry surfer chick on 90210!), less is more. When it comes to great summer tresses Gillian knows a thing or two about looking effortlessly gorgeous 24/7.   The bottom line for summer waves is always a ‘do that is super easy – the art of perfectly wild, perfectly textured and tousled beach hair.

Here’s a step by step!

  1. Weave in a little relaxed braid on one or both sides, letting the ends fray a bit to make the look even more natural.
  2. Spray a texturizer all over.  Blast each braid with a blow dryer until dry.
  3. Gently unravel the braids and rake fingers through hair.
  4. Use the pads of your fingertips and piece through hair to create some cool flyaways and slightly tease it to create a subtle lift.
  5. You can also use a 1 1/4″ curling iron to create a few face framing waves. Wind the hair around the curling iron, twisting the hair a bit to create a bit of ropiness, leave about an inch of hair out of the iron, so the ends remain flat. The flat ends give the look a more unstructured cool-girl vibe instead of being too pretty.
  6. Rake hands thru the curled pieces to loosen.
