Emily Day is a beach volleyball super star with a growing collection of accolades, including a handful of gold medals and the title of AVP Pro Tour Champion of Cincinnati in 2013. Since starting her beach volleyball career, she has continued to climb the ranks and make a name for herself as a serious competitor. With so much of her time spent in the sun and training, we were curious how Emily cares for her beautiful blonde hair. Here she shares a bit about her career and beauty routine:
What is your favorite thing about playing beach volleyball professionally?
I'm so lucky to be doing something I love. The privilege of representing our country all around the world is my favorite part of being a pro beach athlete.
When you’re not traveling or competing, what do you do for fun?
I have such a great group of friends so when I'm not traveling or competing you can find me with them making dinners, biking along the strand, or going on a hike.
Who is your biggest fan?
I think a couple of people may fight over the title of my biggest fan! I have a group of friends and family that call themselves Em's Entourage and travel to many of my tournaments to cheer me and my partner Jen on. My sister is the leader of the group and made shirts for everyone this year.
What is your daily beauty routine?
My beauty routine is simple. I'll always wash my face in the morning, throw on face lotion (of course with spf), wash my hair with my Tea Tree Special products, and apply a little mascara and blush for the day.
If we spilled open your beach bag, what would we find?
Sand! I can't seem to get rid of it. You'll also find a theraband, sarong, sunscreen, ball needle, speaker (always listening to music at practice) and face wipes.
How do you describe your personal style?
I refer to my personal style as beachy-tribal. I'll wear a simple shirt with a necklace and jeans to hang out in. Then I'll do a tribal print top with a pair of gold earrings to go out.
What Paul Mitchell® products do you always have on hand?
I always have my Tea Tree Special Shampoo® and Conditioner when I travel. And anytime I wear my hair down I have to use Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Styling Treatment Oil®.
How do you live beautifully?
I live beautifully by learning from all experiences. As a pro athlete, there are a lot of highs and lows and I'm appreciative of what each experience has to offer.
Inspiring! Cheers to a great season, Emily!
