The best hair is undone, but sometimes, you have to ‘do’ to ‘undo’.

You know, like your half-tucked boyfriend shirt (‘this old thing?!’), your casually coordinated rolled-up sleeves (‘oh, I didn’t even notice’) and your brand new yet totally ‘worn-in’ looking Stan Smiths that you bought last week (‘I’ve had these for sooo long’). It’s called smoke and mirrors guys, and we’re all about playing the game.

So, this week on THE FILE, we’re turning our attention to beach hair, and how to get it minus, well, the beach. Sure, a few sprays of Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray will help, but if you really want that loosely tousled, disheveled texture, you’re going to need to step it up a notch.

Here’s how.
