Beauty and the Beach

The temperature is rising, holiday season is finally here and it’s time to hit the sand. We already ordered a bikini (or three) in the ASOS mid-summer sale, the sun lotion and flip flops are packed, but now it’s time to brush up on those beach babe worthy hairstyles.

Between all the pics that will inevitably be uploaded to Instagram, from posing by palm trees and on inflatable flamingos to taking selfies out at sea, we know you want your hair to look hot.

That’s why we’ve picked out our favourite looks to get you inspired. From tousled waves and buns and braids, to ponytails and easy-up-dos, find which one speaks to you and get styling.

Messy Fishtail Plait

The fishtail plait is the ultimate beach babe look and is one hair trend that will never go out of style. Why? Because it’s super easy to achieve and looks totally gorgeous. The perfect combination of girly and messy – you can’t go wrong. Top Tip: To keep with the ‘messy’ feel and for a wispy, looser look, tease the edges of the plait to make them come apart slightly.

Low-key Waves

Sexily dishevelled beach hair is one of summer’s go-to looks. It’s the kind of style that looks better when it’s not perfect – hence why we’re huge fans!

Wear yours tousled, textured and teased for a full-on beach-babe finish.

Boho Braid

The little hair detail that’s here to stay? Braids. When paired with waves, braids create a soft, dreamy look that will still look lovely at the end of the day. We heart this boho chic style.

The Double Bun

When it’s hotter than ever out and the thought of keeping your hair down is enough to get you in a sweat, then the double bun is your summer hair saviour. Plus, why have one bun, when you can have two?

Sunkissed Locks

Highlights are a great way to achieve that ‘just stepped off the beach look’ and to bring out a sunkissed glow.

Psst! Don’t forget…. to keep your tresses tame after a day by the sand and out at sea, try our Protector Instant Care Spray. Suitable for all hair types, it reduces tangles and makes hair instantly manageable, whilst also helping to reinforce curls and waves – perfect for when you’re heading straight from the beach to the bar.
