1. Pigtail braids

This sweet and girly hairstyle is no doubt easy to pull off. Just part your hair in the middle (or on the side, if that’s more your style), braid each side and secure. Make your braids tight if you’re going for definition  or keep it loose for a laidback, romantic vibe.

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: Give your braids a few spritz of TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to keep them from unravelling. This would give your hairstyle grip while you go hyper playing beach volleyball!

Simple and easy: perfect for the beach bum who doesn’t have time to primp her hair before hitting the water. Put your hair up in a high ponytail and divide it into two sections. Twist each section around each other all the way to the ends and then wrap the twisted ponytail around the hair tie and secure in place with a bobby pin.
