Ireland is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Unfortunately  all those beautiful green fields and forest come with a lot of rain. Toss in plugs that don’t fit your much loved blowdryer and hot tools and you have the makings of some potentially terrible vacation pictures. For these reasons I thought I would share with all of you how I managed to style my hair while in the beautiful city of Dublin.


Before I go on a trip I always get an awesome blow out so I don’t have to worry about doing my hair the first day or so. Raquel gives amazing blowouts and used Oribe Gel Serum in my roots for lift and Creme for Style on my mid lengths to ends to keep me smooth and give me some hold. We finished with Impermeable anti-humidity spray to help protect it from the weather.



My flight left late Thursday which means I arrived in Dublin Friday morning. We couldn’t wait to drop our bags off and start exploring. Before we started getting lost in Dublin I refreshed my blow out with a little BB PRet a powder and and sprayed in some Dry spun to give my plane hair some much needed lift. It was so nice to not have to hassle so much with my hair and get straight to having fun. We were so tired but it was so fun to just walk around and explore.



After being caught in the rain Friday night I decided to start the day with fresh hair. I spritzed my clean hair with some Tonic and let it air dry. Knowing the forcast called for rain all day I knew braids were my friend so I used a little Grooming creme to keep my braids smooth and give them a little grip. I braided Dutch braids on either side of my head and ended them in a low messy bun.


Castles and sea side oh my! We decided to spend Sunday exploring Malahide Castle before heading to the seaside village of Howth for a prawn festival. My hair was wavy from my braids the day before so I decided to go with it and rock the beach waves by refreshing them with some tonic and grooming cream for some hold before spritzing them with a little surf spray for that beachy look. Then I finished the look with more Dutch braids because……braids.
