If your hair is long
To get this surfy look, the It Girls’ favourite stylist, Richard Ward says:
1 “Spritz some L’Oreal Professionnel Techni.art Pli, £7.50, onto towel-dried hair.
2 Rough dry, using your fingers to tousle the hair, twisting some sections, then releasing them once they’re dry.
3 John Frieda Ocean Waves, £4.95, sprayed onto damp hair will give you ocean waves, or try new Gamier Fructis Surf Hair, £3.99, to give you that sexy, matt, beachy look.
4 On holiday, long hair needs some TLC, so apply some Umberto Giannini Sun Style Keep It Slick Gel, £4.49, to style and protect.”
If your hair is mid-length
Tonging is the key to tousled hair says, Sascha Mascolo-Tarbuck, creative director for Toni&Guy and Essensuals:
1 “Apply Toni&Guy Boost-lt Mousse, £5.99, and blast your hair dry.
2 Then, curl sections of hair randomly. Try Babyliss Trevor Sorbie Curling Tongs, £17.
3 The overall look should be slightly messy, so break up the curls using your fingers and apply a little Toni&Guy Insights Shine Addiction Sparkle and Shine Mist, £4.95.
4 On hoilday, spritz Toni&Guy Mega Lite Conditioner, £4.49, onto damp hair and twist into a bun. Take out at night for loose waves.”
If your hair is short
You’ve got a head start, says Harington’s salon manager, Victoria Saunders:
1 “Start with freshly-washed hair.
2 Use plenty of mousse for added texture.
3 L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Shine Blonde, £8.25, will maintain colour and is a leave-in conditioner.
4 Blast dry with the hairdryer.
5 Apply a little Nicky Clarke Blonde Goddess Touch Me Define and Polish Texturiser, £4.99, to your hair. It adds lights to blonde hair.
6 On holiday, apply Redken Moisturizing Sun Jelly, £8.50, to damp hair for shine and hold, while protecting hair from the sun.”
