Beach-Approved Hairstyles You Need This Summer

It’s time to break out the beach bag and the swimsuit drawer, ladies! The glorious and balmy summer months are upon us, which means all kinds of things––like new swimsuits in our online shopping carts and a fresh bottle of tanning oil in our beach bag. But before you hit the beach, make sure you master some beach-approved hairstyles. Here are three beach-approved hairstyles guaranteed to outlast your tanning stamina.

Mermaid Waves

Included in the list of summertime to-do’s, we’re officially deeming it time to adopt a mermaid state-of-mind, which means we’re telling the time by the tide and sporting hair reminiscent of the ocean’s waves. Mermaid beach curls are turning heads this summer––mark our words. To get these beachy waves, air-dry your hair to a semi-damp state after the shower. Then apply FS Styling Mousse distributed evenly throughout the hair. Next, rough blow dry your hair until completely dry. If you’re going for maximum volume, flip your hair over while you blow dry and comb through your strands with your fingers. To finish off this hairstyle, use a curling iron to get those loose waves and apply FS Finishing Spritz for an ultra tousled look.

Fishtail Braids

As far as sea-inspired hair goes, mermaid waves aren’t the only beach-approved hairstyles we’ll be rocking this summer. Fishtail braids are not only a fun, edgy hairstyle to rock at the beach this summer, but it’s also one of the most practical hairstyles whether you’ll be spending your time building sandcastles or catching some rays by the water. To get this look, split your ponytail into two equal halves. Then, cross one strand from each side over the center to create X’s with your hair. Continue this all the way to the end of your ponytail and secure with a hair tie. For all-day hold, spritz in some FS Finishing Spray before hitting the beach.

Side-part Braid

For a simple, beachy look that’s guaranteed to keep your hair out of the way for all of your sandy adventures this summer, the side-part braid is the look for you. To get this version of the three-stranded hairstyle we love, begin by deep parting your hair to one side. Next, gather your hair to the side of your head and separate into three equal sections. Gather the two outer sections and weave them into the middle section by alternating each outer section over the center section. Once you reach the end of your ponytail, secure with a hair tie. For an effortlessly chic, beachy hairstyle, spray some FS Finishing Spray to finish it off.

We’re embracing our inner summer soul with these looks for the perfect beach hairstyle, and you should too.
