5 Hairstyles for the Beach

While a trip to beach is one of the best parts of a great summer day, it is not always a part of a great hair day. Scizzors, Shrewsbury, MAThe wind, sand, salt water, and humidity can really do a number on hair. Thankfully, there are hairstyles for the beach can counter these elements, while still allowing you to look cute and stylish. Here is a list of five of our favorite hairstyles for the beach that will make sure that your beachy hair looks great all day long.

  1. The ponytail is one of the most classic hairstyles for the beach. Sure it’s simple, but sometimes that works best, particularly if you have long, straight hair and bangs. If you want to get more creative with a ponytail, feel free. Why not sweep it to the side or try adding some curls?
  2. If you want something a little more sophisticated than a ponytail, there is always the option of putting your hair into a bun. A bun is one of the more ideal hairstyles for the beach if it’s going to be windy. A bun will keep your hair out of your face and can also help keep your hair from getting too wet. If you plan on going into the water a lot, you might want to make sure to secure the bun in place with bobby pins. A messy bun is a great way to look casual but keep your hair under control.
  3. It is impossible to discuss hairstyles for the beach without mentioning braids. You really can’t  go wrong with a braid, and there are many different varieties to suit every mood and style. If you’re in a hurry or don’t have any bobby pins, a classic braid works great. If you have a little extra time (or have a lot of layers in your hair that cause it not to be conducive to a regular braid), you can try French braids, fishtail braids, or waterfall braids.
  4.  Are you contemplating hairstyles for the beach and can’t decide between braids and a bun? You don’t have to choose.  You can try a braid and bun combination. This look is achieved with three or four pieces of braided hair being swept up into a bun. It’s a unique style and shows off your adventurous side.
  5. Another option is going wavy. If you have naturally wavy hair, this might be one of your best options for hairstyles for the beach. The humidity is going to bring out those waves anyway, so don’t fight them if you don’t have to. A few tips for creating and keeping waves under control: Before you head out for the day, wash your hair. While your hair is still wet, scrunch it and add some styling gel and let it air dry completely on its own. In order to avoid frizzing, avoid touching your hair until it has dried.

If you still can’t seem to get your hair under control, a hair wrap or bandanna is another great option for taming your hair at the beach (and is a great way to protect colored hair from harmful UV rays).
