To give hair grip, apply a beach spritz like TIGI Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray ($19; tigiprofessional.com
for salons), then create a deep side part. make a French braid along the hairline, using even amounts of hair for each section to maintain a uniform size all the way down. pull everything into a low side ponytail and secure with an elastic band. add luster with a light coating of shine spray. Try Got2B Oil-licious Dry Oil Hair Taming Mist ($6; drugstores).
