So, you're hitting the beach this weekend and are looking for a few fresh ways to style your hair. Look no further! There's only one easy hairstyle you need to know for going beachside and we've got it right here!
The braided ponytail might seem like a no-brainer option, but that's exactly what makes this classic hairstyle so perfect. It requires minimal effort, looks just as good sleek as it does tousled, can survive a swim, and it's a great way to keep your hair up and slightly less exposed to the sun.
Oh, and the best part? The next day, when you let your braided ponytail loose, you're left with gorgeous beach waves. We call that a two-for-one!
Get the look
Step one: Starting with towel-dried hair, apply a small amount of hair oil (preferably with UV protection) to your hair to combat the sun's rays and nourish your ends. Then, spritz your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray.
Step two: To avoid using heat styling tools, let the hair air dry. Then, spray a bit of sea salt spray throughout. Use your fingers to smooth your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie.
Step three: Braid the ponytail. Then, secure the ends with another hair tie. Don't worry about hair spray, the more mussed up this style is, the more lived-in and romantic it looks!
Next day: Take out the elastics and use your fingers to separate the braid. Run a brush through to soften the waves and then spritz them again with a little salt spray.
Have fun at the beach!
