Headed to the beach this summer and want to look fab? Then don’t forget your hair! Here are 10 easy summer hair trends perfect for the beach this summer.
1. Rely on leave-in conditioner.
Smooth on leave-in conditioner every morning before going outside, to combat dryness and give your locks a healthy shine.
2. Protect hair from the sun.
This is especially important if you color your hair. Try a spray-on UV protectant over your leave-in conditioner to prevent the sun’s rays and avoid your hair turning a brassy shade.
3. Add an accessory.
This is simple, but chic. Consider adding a bright, beachy pony holder or a vibrant headband to give your look some flair.
4. Use salt as a styling aid.
Saltwater gives hair texture and allows it to hold a style better. Take advantage of the ocean texture by skipping the shampoo after the beach, and scrunching your hair dry.
5. Trim before summer.
Summer tends to dry hair out, getting a summer trim will minimize damage by removing unhealthy ends before you head out into the sun.
6. Try braids.
Braided pigtails, braided crowns, and side fishtail braids are a fresh and energetic look for the beach.
7. Apply styling paste to short hair.
A tacky paste or pomade will give short cuts hold and definition, plus protect them from the sun’s rays and chlorine.
8. Sport a scarf.
This has a fun, classic feel and protects hair at the same time. Try tying a long floral or chevron headscarf over hair and letting the ends dangle.
9. Swear off blowdryers.
While you are at the beach, decide to air-dry your hair. Using a blowdryer after a day in the sun can make your hair can speed up the damaging process.
10. Don’t leave home without a wide-tooth comb.
While saltwater is a good styling aid, it can leave hair knotted. Run a wide-toothed comb through your hair after a swim to prevent knots.
