Is it time for the summer vacation? If summer means beach and seashells for you, it's time to pack some pretty hairstyle ideas ideal for sunbathing on the hot sand and enjoying the water without risking hair disaster. We've found some perfect ones for you on Pinterest! I promise you will find it regardless of your hair type or length.
The sun, sand, and seawater put a strain on the hair fiber. Thus attacked on multiple occasions and on all fronts, the hair tends to dry out and weaken - then the straw effect to the touch - or even worse, to break when it is not the forks that are dangerously doubling. the tips of the hair. And that's without counting on the washout effect of the sun and seawater on the color, and on the knots that are created in the lengths with the waves and the tanning sessions. In short, you will understand, a beach is a place of all dangers for your hair. The ideal is therefore to adopt a hairstyle that protects them or at least minimizes the negative consequences of our days at the beach on our hair.
For this, you are spoiled for choice: a bun, a braid, a ponytail, a bun, or even smart accessories (scarf, clip) that hold and protect the hair. It is up to you to see, and especially to choose, according to nature, the fragility and the length of your hair. But it is also possible to bet on a hairstyle that shows loose hair if the condition of your locks or your hair type allows it of course. The lengths left free are always charming for maximum naturalness at the beach, especially when they are embellished with a few soft curls.
If your long hair can undoubtedly be sublimated by wavy waves - a flagship beach hairstyle and trend for many years now - it will certainly be better protected by ties that keep your locks away from the wind and waves. Among the most practical hairstyles for the beach when you have long hair, the braid is the queen of all to avoid knots and hair in the eyes with each dip.
African and retaining the entire hair back, ultra disciplined and braided in an ear of wheat or even messy and loose: no matter the braiding as long as your locks are comfortably held in the clip. Of course, braiding should also be chosen according to your habits. Are you more of a sport type on the sand and splashing around in the water? Opt for a tight hairstyle that will gain flexibility throughout the day, while effectively playing its protective role until the evening. And if you're more of the type to laze on your towel and cool off quietly, then you can go for looser braids that don't stand up to the test of activity but will keep your hair looking tidy until the evening. Single braid or multiple small braids, all options are the same regardless of your choice of style or braiding.
Finally, if you prefer to focus on aesthetics rather than practicality: a few braids embellishing a bun, a ponytail or any other half-tie will also be charming ideas to try for your lazy days at the beach.
Another essential hairstyle to save heat and protect strands from beach attack (sand, wind, seawater): the bun also has more than one advantage when wearing long hair. It is also sported in many different ways to suit everyone's tastes and needs. Bun high perched which puts the hair out of reach of the water (whether strict or casual for that matter), bun done in a hurried way big traveler and why not decorated with a scarf, bun worn low in the back of the neck like a bohemian chic hairstyle… There are plenty of options to make the bun the perfect beach hairstyle for medium to long hair.
And that's without counting on the half-bun, this trendy half-tie that only holds part of the hair to better let the rest of the lengths loose. If we can blame him for leaving them exposed to sand, wind, and sea salt, we must recognize that it has the advantage of still preserving the covering strands, those located on the top of the hair, even those which are the most damaged and therefore the most likely to break under the multiplication of aggressions in summer. Not bad after all, right?
While super-short cuts are happily effortlessly styled at the beach, and long hair is spoiled for choice to be tamed by a pretty tie-up, the same can't be said for bobbed hair! With their short lengths that are sometimes difficult to tie together, they force us to be ingenious to preserve them when we swim in the sea. Do you want to tie them to avoid knots but cannot make a large protective braid with them? Never mind, multiply the mats to be able to hold all of your locks! Two boxer-style quilts, several braids then gathered in a small bun or braids here and there in the hair, it is still possible to braid your hair to benefit from the protective action of the braiding.
With a bob cut, a small ponytail can also be very effective in isolating strands from the water. Think about it to style your hair quickly and well just before a swim. Another smart option that you shouldn't hesitate to abuse: accessories. Crab clip that enhances the hair so that it does not get wet or bandana that protects from the sun, there are many ways to lift your hair up or to protect it from the sun. Why not even mix the two during the day to be on top in all circumstances?
Finally, don't skimp on the half ties which help keep hair tidy in the most beautiful way. Half-bun like on long hair (with the resulting advantages to prevent your hair from being damaged) or two braided or twisted strands that hold the front hair (which are less protective but super elegant), again it It is possible to find pretty and practical hairstyle ideas for the beach.
Frizzy hair is fragile hair and is already naturally prone to drying out. It is therefore very important to preserve them as much as possible at the beach. To do this, vanilla and braids of all kinds are the most suitable hairstyles because they protect frizzy hair well from aggression. A traditional African hairstyle, vanilla is also far from being just ultra-protective, it is also very trendy at the moment. Take the opportunity to take care of your Afro hair as it should! Also called twists because they consist of twisting two strands of hair on themselves before twisting them together, vanilla can be worn in many ways, just like braids elsewhere, where you can vary the way you create them. Once done, you can even create a pretty tie with it, whether it's a bun, a braided ponytail, or any other way to bring them together with your way. It will therefore be easy to personalize your hairstyle. As for accessories, the scarf is also a must-have to protect your Afro hair from UV rays, sand, wind ... Do not hesitate to wrap your hair in it to enjoy the joys of the beach in all serenity.
Sun care for hair is what sunscreen is to the skin: an essential treatment that prevents dryness to retain hydration and healthy tissue, or in this case, a hair fiber. So don't forget this major summer treatment to avoid split ends and the straw effect.
Seawater is drying for the hair. When you let it sit in your hair until the evening after a swim, it has plenty of time to harm your hair fiber. So remember to remove it from your hair once the time has passed with water, by simply rinsing your hair thoroughly with clean water.
If you are usually looking to remove tangles when your hair is still wet with water, then this is not the best way to keep your hair looking beautiful in the summer. Wet, they are still too fragile to be disentangled. So wait until they are only damp to untie the knots while limiting the risk of breakage.
Good news, now that you know which hairstyle to adopt to take care of your hair at the beach, you also know which hairstyle to wear to go to the pool. Protective hairstyles remain the same when it comes to limiting the damage of chlorine to hair.
