It didn’t take long after we posted Nina Dobrev‘s travel beauty essentials for the hair tutorial requests to start pouring in, and we were more than happy to oblige. While most of us aren’t lucky enough to find ourselves beachside on the reg, we turned to the artist behind Dobrev’s effortless ‘dos, Riawna Capri, for how to achieve the look sans tropical temps and ocean air.
This half-up hybrid looks best when paired with beachy hair, so after towel drying, start by spraying with r+Co Rockaway Salt Spray ($25). If you find yourself on the low maintenance end of the beauty spectrum, (lucky you!), take a cue from Dobrev and let your hair air dry. Otherwise, attach the diffuser nozzle to the end of the ghd ‘air Rose Gold’ Professional Performance Hair Dryer ($225) to dry your hair without salvaging that windblown texture.
