Taking care of your hair while enjoying the sun is very important but style can’t be thrown out the window either. After years of experience and looking at a lot of hair styles I have found a few styles that are functional and pool side appealing.
1) The Side Bun – The great thing about the side bun is that it can be messy cute. It also shows that you have hair even though it’s pulled back. While this seems like a funny comment, you would be surprised how boyish slicking your hair straight back can be, and boyish isn’t sexy!
2) French Twist – For those who are not really into getting your hair wet, the French Twist is a perfect solution. It adds a little elegance to a classy bathing suit or you can choose to have hair come out the top for a slightly funkier look.
3) Pigtails (don’t forget the hat!) – Pigtails are a classic, simple way to look a little younger and keep your hair out of your face. Be careful, you don’t want to look like your trying to be 15 again! Try pairing this classic style with a cute hat for a more youthful but sophisticated look
4) Braids – Any type of braid will work but the French braid you can’t go wrong with. They are one of the easier braids to do on yourself and even messy they look cute. A trend that has made its way back on the scene is the headband French braid…a little hippy looking but leave out the forehead band and you will be styling.
I have to say my favorite would be the messy bun. It’s easy and can be redone throughout the day. Whatever your preference if you’re not wearing a hat do not forget the sunscreen because scalp burns are no fun!
