With the dates in the book and the beach house rented, you and your family are ready for summer vacation. In the excitement of packing and planning, it’s easy to overlook the challenge of haircare for you and your daughters in the midst of daily beach activities. Here are a few easy, basic hairstyles and tricks which will bring you peace of mind as you head into summer vacation.
But First A Piece Of Advice
Before mentioning our favorite styles, we want to offer this advice: Always take the extra five minutes of prep time in the morning to style your hair and your children’s hair. Matted hair and wet, droopy locks not only make for extra work that evening, but they also promise damage as you struggle to detangle and brush them out. Schedule ‘hair time’ if you need too; you will not regret it.
Never Underestimate The Power of Simple Styles
- Braid: A classy braid or fishtail will never go out of style. Whether you choose a side, French or a simple straight braid, it will leave you with gorgeous waves upon taking the hair tie out.
- Ponytail: The high ponytail, Ariana Grande style, is adorable and possibly the easiest updo. If you prefer a more classy ‘tail, opt for volume through teasing and adding texture to the roots prior to situating.
- Low bun: Not exactly the “Princess Leia” look, but almost. Two low, tight buns are trendy and recommended, especially for fine hair. Add a touch of class by pulling your locks into a loose, low side bun, twisting your hair as you pull the strands together.
Summer Sun Is No Joke
The summer sun is intense and hair accessories can be just the thing to protect from excess sun exposure. A low bun or braid is perfect for a floral snapback, and a headwrap protects your scalp if you wear a ponytail. A floppy hat is perfect for a beach day and offers great protection, no matter the hairstyle. A burnt scalp is no fun, friends.
