The new type of curly blow-dry you need in your life
Meet the Mai-Tai.
You probably know it as an alcoholic rum-based cocktail but it's also a type of blow-dry coined by American blow-dry bar 'DryBar'.
The Mai-Tai is all "about effortless, messy, beachy hair".
You know the style I'm on about, the look that actually takes a considerable amount of effort to look "effortless".
It's all about textured waves which basically means a style you might try at home with a curling wand but somehow, it never looks quite as good.
The big bouncy voluminous blow-out has previously been the most requested style at practically every salon in the country but that might all be about to change.
To be fair, beachy textured waves are a lot easier wear than high-glamour big hair so the Mai-Tai might soon become your new go-to for a new weekday low-key look.
If you want to try the below look yourself, there's one key tip as demonstrated in the Instagram post below.
Blow in that curl! The more twist you give the brush, the longer lasting the curl you build in will be. That's the name of the game, ladies!

Like your #MaiTai with extra texture? Just spritz in some #MaiTaiSpritzer on dry hair -- spray about 6 inches from hair then scrunch, twist and go! For even more volume, try flipping your head over & spraying #TripleSec all over your roots (bonus: it will also absorb oils!) You're welcome ✌? @madzzcunningham #blowoutsbringhappiness #Drybar
