Beachy waves and beautiful baby braids combined make for the summeriest hairstyle we've seen so far this year. It's such an effortlessly pretty look, and it's actually quite easy to replicate, especially if you're starting with second day tresses.

To find out how to recreate this beautifully bohemian look on your own mane, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with dry hair, ideally unwashed, spritz some dry shampoo onto the roots. Products like Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray are specially formulated to absorb excess oil while adding lift and helping to mattify the hair. Leave it to get to work for at least five minutes, then brush it out with a natural bristle hairbrush.

Step 2

Apply a heat protectant like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout the lengths. Comb it through to ensure even coverage.

Step 3

Use a 1" curling iron to create waves, making sure to alternate the direction you curl each piece of hair in for the most natural looking results.

Step 4

After curling, shake your fingers through your hair, then create a few small braids, taking the hair from behind each ear. You can stick to a regular three-strand technique or opt for a more intricate fishtail technique depending on your skill level and the amount of time you have.

Step 5

On each side of your face, pin a chunk of hair back behind your ear to help showcase the braids, then finish with plenty of strong hold hairspray. That's it!
