We’re all envious of those girls on the beach. You know the ones. With their perfectly wavy hair that seems to have been gifted to them by the sea salt gods. Compared to your flat and frizzy styling attempts, their hair is a magazine advertisement for laid back beauty. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to get the best sun and salt style for your hair so you can look your best on and off the sand. Don’t worry beach babe, we have got you covered for this summer on the sand.
It’s getting hot in here
For a longer lasting style, heat tools are going to be your best friend. Let’s talk straighteners. For the best results, let your hair dry naturally until it’s almost dry, then spray some heat protectant product into it, followed by some sea salt spray for texture. Blow dry the remaining dampness out of your luscious locks, and then section your hair, and twist it into sections. Once twisted, turn up the heat and clamp down the straighteners on sections on the twist. That’s it, you’re ready for the beach.
Let’s get braidy
This one requires some heat, but more preparation. I’m talking overnight prep here. So, first things first, shower and wash your mane as you normally would. Then towel dry your hair then grab the mousse. Be generous, depending on how much volume you’re after, then scrunch your hair up into fists to define the waves. Once you’ve got this far, separate your hair into two parts and get braiding! Sleep in the braids overnight and when you wake up you’ll have waves that look sent from the hair-angels in heaven.
Girls got curls
In these types of articles, it’s only ever women with straight hair looking for volume that are taken into consideration. However, this part is where we explain how to get curly hair into a luscious, tousled wave.
It’s all about the stretch, so avoid scrunching your hair, and use a smoothing creme to massage and pull down the curls gently. Rather than messy, you want to go for a polished look, so when it gets a bit wild later in the day (let’s not lie to ourselves it definitely will), you want that to look intentional. Let your hair air dry, but if you’re in a rush, try blow drying with a diffuser.
So there you have it, plenty of ways to make your hair look tousled and beautiful for your next beach date or chilled day. With these tips, you’ll always look like you’ve walked straight off the sand but without the stickiness of salt water. This hair trend is one that never seems to fade.
