If you’re hitting the beach this summer or planning to party poolside then a hairstyle that will keep your hair under control, in style and looking great is a must have.

Wonderful Wavy Hair

Nothing says a beach hairdo like wavy hair. Spritz your locks with sea salt spray and give your hair a good scrunch to encourage any natural waves to form and provide you with a mermaid-esque finish.

Terrific Top Knot Updo

If you want to keep your strands out the way, but still very stylish looking, pull your hair length up, twist it around and secure it on top of your head in a top knot updo with a snag-free hair elastic or hair pins. The key to this look is messy-yet-chic so don't worry about getting every strand perfectly in place.

Short and Sleek

If you have short hair then give it a glamorous makeover by using hair gel or moulding cream to slick your hair down. It’ll give you a fuss-free finish that’s just perfect for hanging on the beach or by the pool.

Pretty Plaits

If your hair is quite long or you just want to keep your hair in place without it looking boring then give pretty plaits or braids a try. The hair trend nowadays is to add plaits pretty much wherever you like, but we’re big fans of adding a plait around your face or through your mid-lengths with a fabulous side-styled finish.

We hope these beach hairstyle ideas will give you plenty of styling options for fun in the sun. Just remember to protect your locks from hair damage by washing your hair or spraying in conditioning products that contain UV filters before hitting the beach.
