Celeb beach hair looks we love

Thursday, 26 December 2013

Summer is here which can only mean one thing – beach time! Although it’s not the red carpet, there’s no reason why you can’t spice things up with a gorgeous and stylish hairstyle. Look the part by following the lead of these on-trend celebs.

Beach hairstyles we love

Lucy Hale
Suitable for both long and medium length hair, this gorgeous loose plait is the perfect beach look. Whether you choose a traditional plait or the much-loved fishtail plait, this style is sure to look good on anyone.

Candice Accola
For an effortlessly cool look, why not try the ever-popular topknot? Easily created, the topknot is a fuss-free hairstyle that suits all face shapes and can be worn from day through to night.

Lauren Conrad
If you have thick or curly hair, this voluminous ponytail is for you. Best worn as a high ponytail, this style is especially suitable if you are planning on playing any beach sports. Who says you can’t look good playing volleyball?

Beach hairstyles we love

Keke Palmer
If you prefer to stay out of the water and relax on the beach (looking effortlessly cool of course), then this stunning milkmaid braid is the perfect beach hairstyle for you. Easy to achieve and fuss-free, this is the ultimate hairstyle for a glamorous beach look.

Rachel Bilson
What would beach hair inspiration be without the ever-popular tousled waves? There is no denying that beach-y waves are absolutely gorgeous and what better place to sport them than at the beach? Straight hair? Here’s a tip: sea salt spray will help to achieve a slightly messy and wavy look without having to enlist the help of a curling tong.

Jennifer Hudson
Let’s not forget about all the short-haired ladies out there. Add some va-va-voom volume to your hair by spritzing a root lifting spray onto your roots. We love Jennifer’s side parting and if we had short hair we would definitely give this look a go!
