6 Easy Beach Hairstyles You Need To Try This Summer
It's beach szn, loves. Well, here in Colorado it's pool season, but we'll take the Vitamin D wherever we can get it.
I think we can all agree that life is better in a bikini. Two things to remember while soaking up the sun: 1) protect your skin and 2) take care of your hair.
Below are 6 of our favorite easy hairstyles you can wear while staying salty.
Patterned Silk Bandana
One of summer's chicest accessories (and one of my personal faves) is the versatile patterned silk bandana.
If you're like me and have colored hair, wearing a bandana is one of the easiest ways to protect your locks from drying out in the harmful rays. If you want to opt for a solid color, our UV protectant bandana is available in Midnight.
On Trend: Bucket Hats
Keep the sun out of your eyes in style. Bucket hats were all the rage in 2020 and it looks like they aren't going anywhere in 2021.
The floppy brim will keep the rays off your face, but that doesn't mean skip the SPF 50. Wearing sunscreen is the best anti-aging prevention, no cap (pun intended).
This one is for my curly-haired queens. Give your hair a break from heat styling.
Summer is the perfect time to keep hair and makeup natural. If you have perfect voluminous ringlets like above, rock 'em. Depending on where you live, don't forget to use products that enhance your curls while also fighting humidity.
The must-have accessory of the summer is undeniably the scrunchie.
It's gentler on your hair than a regular hair tie and is perfect for throwing your hair up and out of your face while laying out. Wearing a loose bun on top of your head won't create creasing.
I love our Soulvation scrunchies because the bamboo spandex is so soft and doesn't pull or tear the hair. Check out our new limited edition Tuscan Collection colors before they sell out.
Beach Bands 4 Ever
Headbands keep your hair back while also protecting your hair. Double win. For a similar look to above, try our extra-wide Turbands.

Messier the Better
The key to happiness is a top knot and a double shot of espresso.
Top knots will always be on-trend. Why? They are universally flattering, versatile, and can be done fairly quickly. I've gotten my messy bun down to under a minute - it's an art form.
For an effortlessly chic look, use a texturizing spray and pull out sections of the bun for an undone look.
