    What are the Best Hairstyles for the Beach?

    Beach hairstyles are among the few hairstyles that look universally good. Although they look laidback and low-effort, they look amazing and are super easy to create. These tousled, loose hairstyles not only match the vibes of the beach but also protect your hair from weather damage. The following are some of the trending hairstyles that will make you look your best beach self!

    • Messy updo

    With the sun beating down on your neck, letting your hair down might be uncomfortable. In such times, the best option is to opt for a bun. To match the easy-going vibes of the beach, make a messy bun with a few strands of twisted hair. You can also let loose a few strands so that you can enhance a messy yet cute look.

    • Braided low bun

    Perfect hair and the beach do not really go together, and we discovered that messy is the new perfect. To get your hair out of your face, braid a few sections around your head. Then, tie these braids together with the rest of your hair into a low, messy bun. Not only does this look take next to no effort to create, but it also looks amazing.

    • Messy fishtail braids

    Braids are the perfect way to protect your hair, and messy fishtail braids look both casual and cool. This hairstyle is perfect for people with long hair who do not want too much sun, the salinity of the water, or sand to affect their hair. After you have braided your hair in the fishtail style, allow a few strands of your hair to come out of the braid. Then, after a few hours at the beach, you will have the perfect messy fishtail braid to flaunt.

    • Beach waves with braids

    The beauty of the wavy texture is that it looks like braids you have loosened. So, to add more details to your hairstyle, add braids to it. Depending on the vibe you’re going for, you can add one or many, and this braided crown adds a wonderful and classy look to your hair.  

    How to Maintain your Beach Hairstyle

    Although UV light is primarily known to harm your skin, it is equally detrimental to your hair as well. They make hair brittle, dull, dry, and faded. So, do not limit your sunscreen protection to only your skin because your hair equally requires it. Besides UV light, the mineral-rich saline seawater in contact with your scalp leaves it flaky and damages your hair. To reverse this effect, one of the products you can safely use is a clarifying shampoo. Here are a few things that you can do to protect your beach hairstyle from damage.

    • Apply a nourishing hair oil

    Bleached or dyed hair should not be exposed to seawater because, due to bleaching, your hair has already lost its nutrients. In addition, exposing it to seawater will make it lose even more moisture. To prevent such damage to your hair, you can use Wow Skin Science’s Moroccan Argan Hair Oil. Massage it on your scalp and along the length of your hair before you take a dip into the sea.

    • Protect your hair with a nourishing mask

    Using a deep-conditioning hair mask is also a great idea to protect your hair from seawater damage. Wow Skin Science’s Coconut Milk Hair Mask works on your hair to strengthen brittleness, smoothen damaged hair strands and reduce breakage. It not only keeps your hair moisturized and soft but also allows your tresses to reabsorb essential nutrients.

    • Use apple cider shampoo

    To ensure optimum care for your hair, apple cider is one of the best ingredients. When planning a beach vacation, the Apple Cider Shampoo by Wow Skin Science is the best way that you can keep your hair both nourished and hydrated. Along with that, add the Avocado and Coconut Conditioner, and you can effortlessly protect your tresses.

    • Apply leave in hydration to your hair

    Hair care and fun can go hand-in-hand. So, before you are out having fun on the beach, use Wow Skin Science’s 10-in-1 Hair Revitalizer spray on your hair. This leave-in hydrating product works wonders and ensures that your hair stays shiny, strong, and soft all the time.


    So, we think you’re prepared for the vacation now! Enjoy – and don’t forget to take pictures of your beach hairstyle! Post them under the hashtag #wowskinstyle, and we’ll share them on our Instagram page.
