I had to go to the beach one last time. This summer has been so kind to me that I dont want it to end. Not to mention my hair has been craving salthonest to goodness salt from the ocean. So I jaunted off to Montauk (the verrrry eastern tip of Long Island, past the Hamptons) for an end of the summer beach trip to play in the water and give my hair what it wanted. I actually think salt water is pretty drying of your hair, but it just makes it look so rad that I imagine its worth it for most girls. (like myself)

I think my hairs two favorite things in life are salt water and golden sunlight. Montauk gave me both. Here are some photos

Apps and drinks at The Montauket for the best sunset of the summer. The locals had apparently seen much better, but I was crying and becoming a believer at the site.

Did you see Amanda Blairs new bob? Ill be writing about it soon. I think she has found her look.

At the top of the lighthouse. Furious winds and rays of light.

I always joke when I give a client beach waves that she looks like shes been making out with a merman. It gets them every time.
Maybe you had to be there..

One last, because this trip recap wouldnt be complete without including the photo of me rolling down the hill at the lighthouse. I lost control and flailed the whole way down like a lunatic. Later I found grass and other pieces of nature in my hair. Remember how golden sunlight and sea salt are my hairs favorites? Not so much grass.

Summer has been a dream. I found myself again, amidst various strolls in the park, bike rides, trips to the beach, and the rare slower pace the city has when everyone is away. Summer came when I needed it the most this year. Even though it comes at the same time on the calendar every 12 months, this particular summer felt like it was here just for me. Like a care package from my mom or something.

Love you so much summer of 12.

PS I plan to continue to look like I made out with a merman by using this product. Its my old faithful. How many times have I recommended it now?

(ps thanks for staying with me during this sappy I Love Summer post.)

Beach hair. Im talking real-live beach hair.

As much as I love products that give you beach hair, there is still nothing like actual beach hair. I went to the beach over the holiday weekend and was as excited about having real mermaid beach hair as I was to actually be at the beach. See my face below for proof.

How cute am I in a wetsuit? Not cute? Crap!

My surfing coach told me I was a natural. Who cares what a liar my surfing coach is, because all that crashing and salt water drinking (and snorting) only means wet ocean hair. And wet ocean hair means dry ocean beach mermaid waves. Score!

Sidenote: my shoulders and arms are still killing me from all the surfing, but I made some major progress in my skills. I am stoked to be a totally gnarly surfer babe one day. Until then, Ill just settle for good beach hair that doesnt come from a bottle.

Heres to summer and beach going! And mermaid hair! And surfing wounds (unfortunately).

And if you cant get to a real beach, try this or this. Youre welcome, Muah!

Happy weekend!
