1. Half-Braided Pigtails

For a cute and easy braided style, try these half-braided pigtails. They’re great because they work on even bob-length hair! Create this style by parting your hair down the center. Get a beachy texture by spritzing in some sea salt spray. Then, just french-braid your hair backward to the nape of your neck. Secure in place, and you’re set for the beach.

2. Low-Space Buns

For a simple, but totally stylish way to pull your hair off your neck, try out low-space buns. This easy look is created by making two messy buns that you twist around your pigtails. Just be sure to secure those buns with hair ties or bobby pins so your hair will look effortlessly cool all day long.

3. Twisted Ponytail

For a sweet and romantic style, try out this awesome twisted ponytail. This is a slightly more complicated style, so you’ll need a mirror to make sure it looks cute, not messy. Start off by twisting your hair backward and pinning in place as you go. If you have shorter pieces of hair that don’t fit, don’t sweat it! Instead, pin those strands in individually to create this romantic look. Finish the style by securing your hair into a ponytail.

4. Half-Up Braids

We’re so in love with this half-up braided look. It has everything we love about spring break hairstyles! All you need to do is create evenly spaced parts on the top half of your hair. Then, braid each section back and secure with a hair tie. Set your style with the TRESemmé Climate Protection Finishing Spray to keep humidity-caused frizz at bay.

5. Funky Accent Braid

For an even easier braided look, try an accent braid. You only need one or two to create a fun look! Just do a simple three-strand braid down and secure at the end. Get an extra-fun look by using hair piercings to make your accent braid into a statement braid.

6. Gorgeous Fishtail Half-Updo

If you’ll be spending spring break on a beach, you have to try a fishtail braid. They’re basically the key to wavy mermaid hair! For a fun half-up look, take a large section from above each ear and fishtail braid the section backward. When you reach the center of the back of your head, secure the two braids together. Wrap a small section of your hair around the hair tie to complete this mermaid-inspired hairstyle.

Just bring along the Dove Absolute Curls Leave-In Detangler to make sure your curls stay knot-free, defined and soft!
