Quick & Chic Hairstyles for the Beach at James Dun’s Hair Salons in Aberdeen & Glasgow
Looking chic can be a little tricky on the beach. You have the sun, sea and sand to contend with and when the breeze blows… goodness only knows how your hair will cope!
Beach hair is often less “I’ve been surfing and my hair just naturally turned out this way”, and more “I spent at least 30 minutes in the mirror perfecting this, so don’t even THINK about getting it wet”!
The good news is there are a few hairstyles that are quick and easy to create and are perfect for the beach, barbeque or a fun party. Check out our simple beach hairstyle ideas here…
Plaited Summer Hairstyles
Plaits are absolutely fab when it comes to getting that boho vibe; plus they keep your hair out of your face when you’re contending with that sea breeze.
There’s also the added bonus that when you take them out, you’ll have beach waves to die for, without spending hours with a curling iron and drying out your locks.
Wear your plait in whatever style you fancy. It can be high on the crown, a low side-plait, two braids or even a halo braid if you’re feeling adventurous!
Top Knot Hairstyles for Summer
Top knots are a perfect way to get your hair out of your face and they’re SO easy to do on your own.
Give your hair a good brush, pull it up into a ponytail at the crown and secure it with a band. Then twist your hair around until it turns into a little knot. Secure with a second band.
This look is awesome on women and men with long hair, so lads don’t need to feel left out.
If the mood takes you, why not go for two top knots for a change?
Summer Hairstyles – High & Low Ponytails
There are so many choices when it comes to ponytails, and all you really need is a brush and a good hair tie.
High ponytails are fab for making your cheekbones look really high, which is especially good if it’s simply too hot to contour.
Low ponytails are the ultimate in low-maintenance, so they’re great for beach trips.
For a cool night-time look that’s quick and easy, wear your ponytail low and to one side. Maybe add a few waves to it using your styling wand.
Summer Hair Accessories
Got your hair all wet and now you don’t know what to do with it? No worries, just cover it up. There are lots of pretty hair accessories out there, that will perfectly complement the summery feel of the rest of your outfit. Hats are the best – they keep you cool, and they can be super stylish. But flowers and scarves work equally well, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Slicked Back Hair for Summer
If your hair is wild and unruly, sometimes you just want it all slicked back! It gets it out of your way, and it can look amazing if you’re taking good care of your hair.
