The Beach Prep 
Intense sunshine, sand and salt water can take its toll on shine, although preventative steps will help ensure hair is protected and hydrated. Michele Riccio from Ojon suggests applying an intensive hair mask to dry hair before setting off to beach. ‘Then comb back tightly into high sleek ponytail, or twist hair into a bun on top of your head for a classic chic look.’  
 
To top up your hair throughout the day spritz it with the Ojon Revitalising Mist to de-tangle, protect and re-hydrate. It’s the hair hydration equivalent of drinking a long cool glass of water. From Harper's Bazaar. 
Mike Riccio in Red Online >> Channelling Moschino’s smooth and shiny styles, Frieda Pinto’s sleek blow dry was coiffed into a halo braid that culminated in a low chignon, giving her flawless finish make-up and smoky eyes undone appeal. To channel the look, follow member of the global Ojon styling team, Michele Riccio’s, simple styling tips. ‘Halo braids, like Pinto’s, are spot on for summer months as they keep longer hair up whilst also looking stylish. 
 
For a similar style, hair ideally needs to be at least eight inches long and thick as finer hair won’t give you a full-bodied look.’ ‘For a similarly sleek style you need to invest in products that will leave your locks smooth and easy to braid. Start by shampooing with Ojon’s new Super Sleek Smoothing Shampoo (£20) and conditioner (£20) – the sulphate free formulas are packed with keratin to help repel humidity and smooth flyaways. 
 
Follow up with Ojon’s Instant Restorative Hair Serum (£16) before plaiting hair and finish with finishing spray to keep the style in place.’ ‘For plaits like Pinto’s, simply divide the into 2 from the crown downwards. Then divide each section into 3 pieces & braid all the way to the ends & secure with a band. Repeat on other side. Then take both braids & cross over on crown & secure with grips,’ Riccio suggests.
