Get Beach Hair

In this article we discuss how to get beach styled hair. 

What is it about being at the beach on a warm day, messing around in the surf and the sand that makes both men and woman's hair look great.

Even for those who are follicly challenged the sea air and salt water can add volume and thickness they did not realise was there.

But whilst this is great, for the majority of us this only happens when we are enjoying a holiday. So how does one go about recreating this look in a less sun soaked setting.

Here are some ways to get beach hair-

Sea Salt Spray

The simplest way to get a beach hair vibe is to spray sea salt into your hair.

This should be done when your hair is damp, for the best results (time allowing) you should leave your hair to dry naturally.

If time constraints make this impossible, using a hairdryer should help recreate the warm sea breeze (for absolute best results use a diffuser on your dryer). A simple tip is to curl your hair whilst drying it- this we add texture and some wave to your barnet.

Here are some links to good sea salt sprays

Texturising Powder

One way of adding some texture and volume is to use texturising powder.

The amazing powder has long been a secret of woman, who often use it to give added volume and thickness to their hair.

The way it works is by increasing the friction between hair strands, thus creating a fuller looking mane.

Using the powder is very simple. Hair must be dry when applied, simply either pour some powder into your hand and spread evenly across the hair or pour directly into the hair from the tube.

Play with your hair until powder has been absorbed and style into desired look

Beach Inspired Waxes and Clays

There are certain waxes and clays that will help you achieve beach hair.

The best example is Hanz De Fuko’s Quicksand.

This unique powder hair clay eliminates excess oil on hair and scalp and gives a cool matt beach finish.

This can be applied to damp hair or dry, but I think for best results use on dry.

How Do I Get Beach Hair With Very Light Or Fine Hair?

  • If you have very light or fine hair it can be more difficult to recreate the beach effect. However it is by no means impossible.
  • Our tip would be- Use a sea salt spray (a slightly heavier one i.e. Murdock or Lush) and follow up with a heaver clay (perhaps the Triumph and Disaster) to add some weight to get the desired look
