Beach hairstyles-73

Summer beach hairstyles shouldn”t be too elaborated and studied, on the contrary, what you need is a tousled, messy hairstyle that reflects an effortless, natural look. You still need to choose practical hairstyle so you can protect your hair against harmful sun rays and feel safe when applying sunscreen. Messy chignons, hippie hairstyles, braids, soft waves or different accessories for medium or short hair are some of the best choices for a day at the beach.

A woman should look good on every occasion even when going on
the beach. Nevertheless, choosing a hairstyle for a day at the
beach is important especially because you are not only looking to
have a special hairstyle, but also to protect your hair against sun
rays and water.

The chignon could be seen in almost every fashion show for
spring/summer 2010, and it became one of the hottest trends when it
comes to stylish hairstyles. Yet, for a day spent at the beach, the
chic chignon was reinvented in a more messy version.

You can make a messy bun yourself, you just need a hair clip or an
elastic band. However, the second one would be a better choice as
the hair clip might be a little uncomfortable if you are sunbathing
on your back. The chignon is the best hairstyle for a day at the
beach as it protects you hair against UVA and UVB radiation more
than if you would let your hair free. A retro, loose chignon can
add a bit of glamour even if on the beach.

Braids and ponytails
Braiding is also a safe way to hide a part of you hair from harmful
sun rays and obtain in the same time a perfect look for a day at
the beach. Don”t forget that messiness can be applied to braids
also. You can choose to make a side braid or one in the back.

For a more tousled, casual look, make only a half braid and leave a
few loose locks on the sides. Two side braids are the ideal option
if you want to get a playful, girly look. You can also braid
colorful ribbons into the hair. A high ponytail can also be the
perfect ally if you want to have a good time at the beach.

Hippie style
Summer hippie hairstyles can be a flirty and natural option for
romantic and bohemian personalities. You can adopt this look
especially if you have long hair, but also if you have a beautiful
bob haircut. For a hippie look don”t forget the basic accessories
such as headbands, headscarves, bandeaus with different prints such
as dots, liberty flowers and even stripes. Besides all these,
flowers in your hair can add that special, bohemian hippie touch to
your look.

Delicate waves
Soft waves are one of the hottest summer hairstyle trends for
2010. If you have natural curly hair, consider yourself a very
lucky person as you just need to enhance the beauty of your curls
using waterproof styling products.

Make sure you choose products that contain SPF. On the other hand,
if you have straight hair, take into consideration the fact that if
you go swimming, the waves into your hair will disappear. In this
case, styling products cannot be a solution as they aren”t strong
enough to maintain waves.

Medium and short hair
For short or medium hair that is not sufficiently long to be
secured with an elastic band or hairpins, you can add some funny
accessories such as a scarf, a bandeau or headbands, or even a hat
that can protect your hair against radiation.

If you have bangs, you can use a narrow
headband to keep it under control. It won”t offer you protection,
but you”ll have a different, unique look. You should go for
headbands made from soft fabrics, as metal or plastic ones can be
rather uncomfortable.
