Here's How To Do Beach Hair In Style

We're packing our bikinis and heading off to the beach this summer. Armed with sunscreen, floats and shades, all that's left to organize is our hair! Read on for 5 holiday hairstyles that are perfect for a tropical adventure.

Bleach Blonde Balayage

Balayage has made its way back into the forefront of the hair highlighting world, and what better way to incorporate this highlighting technique than into long, beach babe locks. The graduated effect creates a natural finish, which is sun kissed and care free. Protect your blonde locks this summer by packing a silver shampoo and heat protecting hair oil. You'll thank us for the tip later ;)

Blorange Beach Babe

Hey surfer girl! Is that orange hair you're sporting? This season's hottest pastel look, blorange, has made its way out of the city streets and into the waves! Whether it's a rose gold or peachy tint that you're after, there's a shade of blorange out there for every complexion and personality. Remember to pack a colour enhancing shampoo to keep your pastel hair looking vibrant all summer holiday long.

Beachy Boxer Braids

If you're the fuss-free type, who dislikes having your hair in your face, then this braided look was invented for you! Boxer braids look particularly good on long, highlighted hair, as the interlacing of the braids create a playful effect, contrasting your natural dark roots with the highlights in your hair. What's not to love about these tidy beauties?

Sun-Kissed Highlights

Natural girls will love this sun-kissed look, which can be applied to medium brown to blonde hair. The sparseness of the highlights makes for a dreamy finish that will accentuate your tan and soften your facial features. As with pretty much every look we've suggested, these natural-looking highlights can be sported on hair of any length, from a messy bob to long and floaty waves.

One For The Brunettes

Who say's dark hair can't be sun-kissed? This dark-haired balayage proves that a golden glow is possible on any hair colour. We would even go as far as suggesting you speak to your colourist about gloss smudge, a technique which eliminates the obvious transition between your roots and your highlights, resulting in a natural looking finish. Keep brassy tones at bay by investing products that are designed for colour treated hair.
