It’s only Wednesday but pretty sure we’re all thinking the same thing right now… LONG WEEKEND!

Finally here, it’s the official long weekend to open the cottage, take that first dive into the pool, or get that boat out. Hello May 2-4, we’ve been waiting for you!

Long weekends are meant to be chill, nothing but sunshine and relaxation. With this in mind, simple, breezy styles are necessary and the Beauty Supply Outlet has the perfect nautical-inspired solution! Inspired by the Avanti Ultra Nauti-Tools line, stylist Nicole Deen shares three easy long weekend styles.

Beauty Supply Outlet, Nauti-Twist

Nicole begins Aarynne’s Nauti-Twist with heat protector throughout and then a full head of flat iron ribbons – twist and pull through. Love the pin-up girl on the flat iron!

Then spray all the curl with Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray – a great spray to add texture onto dry hair.

Take two small sections at the top front, twisting each section. You can twist and secure one with a clip while you twist the other one.

Double knot it, like you are tying a lace.

Pull the knot apart slightly and secure it with a couple of pins.

Such a pretty nauti-twist!

Invisibobble Updo

The BSO carries the Invisibobble, a clever new hair tie that reduces crimping, hides in the hair and is comfortable, light and easy to use. Nicole blew our mind with this elegant updo from three quick braids and one Invisibobble.

Section the hair into three sections – two at the front and one back ponytail. Tie the back ponytail low with the Invisibobble and then pinch and pull the hair out a bit, above the tie, to make it messy-ish.

Loosely braid the ponytail and then pull the braid to loosen it even more.

Holding the middle braid section push the other two sections up

all the way up so it bunches

then twist the straight end around the Invisibobble and tuck it under to secure.

Repeat the process on both front sections – loose braid, pull braid apart to loosen more, push hair up, twist straight section around the Invisibobble and tuck the end to secure.

Nicole made a series of twists piled up high and secured with pins.

That’s Cosmoholic Liquid Lipstick in Rockstar Red on Aarynne.  Love this gloss – hydrating and longlasting colour. Also, completely wins on packaging – mirror on gloss and light on the wand! I have recently tested this out in a nightclub, at a concert and can tell you, it is amazing. Brilliant! As Leah, owner of BSO Barrie puts it, “someone was thinking about women on this one!”

Super adorable!

The Paul Mitchell Yacht Club tote bag comes with the nautical scarf.
