Element Hair Perfect Hair for the Long Weekend


Sometimes after hours of enjoying the outdoors and playing in the lake water our hair can feel a little dull and limp. Luckily, our Conditioning Mousse gives the perfect amount of shine and flexible hold to keep your hair looking stylish – no matter how you spend your free time!

Apply the conditioning mousse to damp hair, scrunch and air or blow dry for soft definition and flexible hold.

A ponytail is a cottage weekend classic, but why not get creative by adding some braids? Apply texture gel throughout damp hair and conditioning mousse at the roots for extra grip and control. Starting at one side of your hair, create a three-strand braid and french braid across to the other side of your head. Once complete, tie your hair (including the piece you just braided) back into a ponytail and there you have it – a simple and unexpected addition to an otherwise basic hairstyle!


The most effortless look of all is the messy bun but there is a way to do it right. Air dry hair with sea salt spray and pull all your hair into a high ponytail. Twist your hair until it coils into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Finish by gently pinching pieces of hair out of the bun and voila – the perfect messy bun!

Messy bun hair style



A ponytail isn’t the only way to keep your hair out of your face while at the cottage. Apply sea salt spray and conditioning mousse to hair for extra control. Begin to french braid your hair but as you add more hair leave the bottom piece hanging down. Your hair will be securely out of your face but still look incredibly gorgeous! Apply texture gel to ends of hair for a frizz control and shine.


This hairstyle is simple and straightforward but still whimsical and gorgeous enough for a night of star watching. First, apply sea salt mist for texture and conditioning mousse for control. Next, take pieces of hair from your temple and twist them towards the back of your head. Use a bobby pin or an elastic to secure the spot where the two pieces meet and you are ready for star watching and campfires with friends!
