The Best Staycation Hairstyles by Destination

Upgrade your staycation style.

With travel restrictions so uncertain right now, more of us than ever are booking staycations to fill the holiday void. But holidaying closer to home doesn’t mean you can’t still pull out all the stops with your hairstyles. Wherever you’re going, make it a mini-break to remember with these destination-worthy hairstyles.

Cornwall: Surfer Waves

If there’s one thing Cornwall is known for (okay, after its pasties), it’s surfing. So, for anyone off on a Cornish getaway this summer, what hairstyle could be more fitting than beachy waves?


Editor’s Tip: Prefer to watch the waves from a distance, with a book and cocktail in hand? Get the just-been-surfing look with a salt spray like TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray, which will give your locks more body and bring out any natural waves.

Lake District: Hike-Proof Braids

Thinking of booking a walking holiday in the Lake District? Then you’ll be needing a hairstyle that’s equal parts pretty and practical, like this Dutch braided ponytail. It’ll keep your strands out of your face while you’re off on your adventures and you won’t have to worry about it blowing around if it’s windy.

London: Silk Scarves

Summer in the city, but make it stylish. A silk scarf can spruce up even the simplest hairstyles, like this chic half-up-half-down look. Extra bonus points if you coordinate it with your outfit.

Brighton: Fishtail Plait

Whether you’re wandering The Lanes or trying your luck at the penny slot machines on the pier, a fishtail braid is practically made to be worn in Brighton.

After you’ve finished braiding, remember to gently pancake your plait by pulling gently on it from either side to make it look fuller and less ‘done’.

Cotswolds: Twisted Pony

A romantic twisted ponytail is perfect for a day exploring in the countryside. Use a curling wand to add some soft waves and wrap a section of hair around the base of the ponytail to conceal the hair tie.
