The community of Seaside on Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast is a perfect getaway for resort season. This New Urbanist beach town is an idyllic combination of hometown Americana and European sensibility. Find this and other Seaside looks at Perspicasity beachside bazaar.

THINGS YOU'LL NEED:
6–7 clear elastic bands (small to medium depending on your hair’s thickness)
Bobby pins
A firm-hold hairspray such as L’Oréal Extreme Lacquer (It holds without making hair stiff!)



STEP ONE
Take two sections of hair from around the face and use an elastic band to secure them together at the back of the head a little below the crown. Follow this step one to two more times, alternating where the elastic sits below the previous one, with one section secured to the left of the center, and the other to the right.

STEP TWO
Individually flip all of these sections inside out (toward the head) and tuck. While holding the elastic, gently loosen the pieces you pulled together. This gives texture without having to curl!

STEP THREE
Take the hair that is still down and separate into three sections. Twist each section and secure each one at the end with an elastic.

STEP FOUR
Gently pull each side of the twist apart to loosen, giving more volume and texture. Begin to pin at the nape of the neck, working in a circular motion as you pin. Continue this step with the last two twisted sections. Use a firm-hold hairspray all over to secure.
