Hair can be a great challenge to maintain on the beach, especially if you live in a hot and humid place like Singapore.
The beach should mean bohemian hairstyles, Oh-I-just-woke-up-and-my-hair-looked-this-awesome bed hair, and definitely a lot of volume - no limp hair, please!
So how do we actually get beach hair?
1.) It's all about the Waves, the Body, the Life of your tresses.
- If you have straight hair, you can either do the well-known sleeping in braids trick (braiding damp hair and leaving it on the whole night) or you can blow dry your hair the morning before heading to the beach to create volume (remember to blow dry your hair downwards to minimize frizz!).
- Apply some product that will keep your hair moisturized and protected from the sun and sea water like this.
- There are some products that promise to give you beach waves just by applying it! Look out for a post on that coming up soon here at Beach & Baileys!
- If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, the main challenge would be to tame the curls and waves, so look out for some great products like this.
This is the classic braid; it's really easy once you get the hang of it. The basic steps are to take some hair, divide into three sections and then take the left-most division and put it on top of the middle and then take the right-most division and put it on top of the middle division and keep going on. There are a lot of great tutorials on YouTube like this.
The fishtail braid has gained a lot of attention the past couple of months. It's a little more tricky compared to the simple, classic braid but the look totally makes up for it! It's hard to explain how to do this braid so once again here is a YouTube video on how to create the look!
3.) Hair Accessories
This is a great look if you don't have the time to learn or do the braids! Just shop around for some cute head pieces like these; they're bohemian inspired which means free-spirited = great for the beach! You can find them in most shops now; they come in so many sizes, colours and designs!
This is another cute alternative for the beach. It's so carefree!
Finally, here is one of my favourite hair tutorials by Imogen (I love her stuff!).
