17 Jan Winter Vacation Beauty Tips & Tricks
Congratulations! You survived the holidays and made it to a new year. But let’s face it, there’s still quite a stretch of time between now and spring—perfect time to escape these freezing Minneapolis winters and fly somewhere warmer that doesn’t involve scraping ice off your car. We don’t blame you, we just want to make sure you look fabulous doing it. Here are a few ideas for looking your best on your winter vacation.
Sexy, sporty and SUPER easy to achieve. Braids are perfect to wear on the beach. We love boxer braids (shown above), fishtails, and boho braids. They’re great for keeping your hair out of your face and for creating beautiful beachy texture.
Pro-tip: We love Oribe’s Matte Waves Texture Lotion to get a good grip on your braids and keep them from slipping out of shape. Work this lotion through damp hair before you braid and allow it to dry. Once it’s dry, take your braids out, give your hair a good shake and boom—gorgeous texture that you can wear into the evening.
HATS ARE YOUR FRIEND
The sun is damaging to your hair and skin all year round. For the best protection, we suggest finding a cute hat to accessorize with. Look for something that has a wide brim that will keep the sun off your face and from beating down on your head—extra points if it matches your bathing suit. Yes, you still have to wear sunscreen.
Pro-tip: Your hair could use a little R & R too. Refresh Purifying Shampoo by Virtue Labs is a great way to take build-up from the pool or ocean out of the hair. Formulated damage repairing protein Alpha Keratin 60ku is perfect for rejuvenating and resetting your hair. It comes in travel size so you can take it with you and come back with beautifully refreshed hair.
FAIL-PROOF BEACH WAVES

When you go on vacation, ALL of you is on vacation, including your hair. So ditch the blow dryer and straighteners and embrace your natural texture. Beachy waves are the LBD of vacation hair—you can never go wrong and it always looks great.
Pro-tip: Spritz some Bumble and bumble Surf Infusion on your hair to enhance your natural wave and texture. Tropical oils and sea botanicals soften and add shine, as well as react to warm tropical air. UV filters help protect against the drying effects of the sun.
Bring on the open-toed shoes! Before you head to your tropical getaway, make sure you update your leftover holiday mani/pedi to something a little more vacation-appropriate. We have a ton of cute tropical nail hues to choose from, so come see us before you leave and we’ll get those nails beach-ready.
