7 Easy Beach Hairstyle Ideas

beach-hair-lede

We've got nothing against beach waves. The beloved, tousled texture is a summer hairstyle staple, but sometimes it's nice to mix things up. Plus, there's the fact that not everyone can get beachy waves without some major styling. We all deserve to look cute and effortless at the beach, regardless of our texture, which is why we asked hairstylist Adam Bogucki, owner of Lumination Salon in Chicago, to share seven fresh ideas for the perfect seaside style.

The “Octopus Bun” Trend Is the PERFECT Lazy Girl Hairstyle for Summer

octopusbun

There are all sorts of hair trends that we would've never thought of until some hair genius or another brought them into our lives. For example, the mother-of-pearl hair trend — that's not exactly something that occurs naturally (or, at least not when it comes to hair). Other times, a trend has been around forever but only really takes off when Instagram finds a cute name for it. That's what's happening with the "octopus bun," which is really just another name for a specific type of messy bun. Take note.

Hi. _ My name is Brittney. I have hair like an octopus and I don't know how to take selfies. 🐙😮 #awkwardpictures #octopusbun #itsoutofcontrol #bungameonpoint #liveawkwardly #livefree #vsco #vscocam #vscohair Brittney Laird(@bernietaylor)님의...

Kylie Jenner Is Now Rocking a Pixie Cut — and She Looks JUST Like Kris

18514294_427608704285811_3788672500993359872_n

Kylie Jenner is something of a hair chameleon. She's constantly changing her look, experimenting with not only the color, but also the length and texture. She's done a short blonde bob, long luxurious waves, a blue lob, and has even dyed her hair twice in 48 hours for Coachella. Though most of these looks are courtesy of wigs and extensions, Jenner has also revealed what her natural hair looks like, which is apparently to her shoulders. In a recent Instagram post, Kylie just tried out the shortest look we've seen yet, and she bears such a strong resemblance to her mom in the photo it's actually shocking.

Fishtail Flower Braid

maxresdefault
With the amount of bridesmaid duties and wedding dinners I have to attend this year, not only am I spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a pretty dress (because anyone who’s been on Zalora knows my pain), I’m also having a tough time deciding on a suitable hairstyle for each occasion. #Priorities I’m a fan of anything that’s girlie and sweet, hence why loose braids are one of my favourite hairstyles to do on a lazy day. But why stop there? This flower inspired up-do is the perfect look for a dinner party and I can’t get enough of it! It’s the ultimate feminine hairstyle that’s rather easy to accomplish on your own, however, if you’re not a pro in the fishtail...

Festival season is upon us, and while Coachella-inspired looks have been dominating social media, black hairstyles for festivals are few and far between.

Selena Gomez Debuts a Bob Haircut on Instagram

GettyImages-634287110(1)
Selena Gomez has just made a major change to her look. Posting a photograph to Instagram on Tuesday morning, the 24-year-old singer showed off her brand-new bob. That’s right: a real bob instead of her usual lob. The star just chopped off her past-the-shoulder hair in favor of a shorter, edgier cut that hits right at her chin. The photos look as though they were taken immediately post-cut. Gomez shows off her angles, hair still wet, wearing what looks to be a white bathrobe pulled off her neck and shoulders. Looking more gorgeous than ever, she seems to be wearing no makeup to speak of. How's that for flawless? Gomez wrote no caption at all to go along with the snaps,...

corset-braid

There’s no shortage of ways to braid your hair — we can think of at least 100 off the top of our heads. There’s one style in particular that seems to be blowing up our Instagram feeds as of late, however: corset braids.

We first told you about the trend back in March of last year, after the corset braid first made its debut at Vancouver Fashion Week last season. Models walking in Toronto-based designer Lesley Hampton’s show hit the runway with thick, see-through ribbons weaved in between two large braids. Now, as  the search for ultimate festival hair picks up speed, the look is being picked up by thousands of devoted followers across the country, like the awesome creation from @ray.voltage above:...
