Inspiration for the best beach babe hair on Instagram

Sun-kissed waves are a go-to look when it comes to vacation hair, but what if you're looking for something a little different this season? Our editors have plunged into the depths of Instagram to find some inspiring beach babe hairstyles!

Side Braid

Give your summer blonde hair an extra boost by creating a textured side braid that captures the light and shows off the different hues in your hair to perfection! For truly beach-worthy waves that last up to 8 weeks (perfect for a long vacation and more!), we recommend asking for the Beach Waves perm at your local L'Oréal Professionnel salon.

Messy waves

For a messier look that works great under a chic summer hat (also a great idea for protecting hair during peak heat hours), try applying the French Girl Hair Messy Cliché spray onto almost-dry hair tied into braids and then blow-dry. Unleash the braids and use fingers to tousle the hair and give it a natural, textured finish.

The wet look

What could be more beach-appropriate than wet-look hair? Use Aqua Gloss gel by Tecni.ART on wet or damp hair to show off the depths and different hues in a bronde balayage.

Upside-down braid

This seemingly upside-down braid might look complicated, but is actually simply a regular French braid fixed up onto the top of the head using pins, secured in place with Infinium Pure and a blast of cool air from a blow dryer. Pull out a few sections for a perfect relaxed, beach-ready braided look.

Perfect waves

These days the average beach babe is also a jet-setter. To seamlessly go from the plane to the pool, hair should swish perfectly, showing off natural-looking sunkissed highlights. The Nutrifier haircare collection has been formulated by the experts at L'Oréal Professionnel to care for hair left dry and under-nourished, especially after coloring and/or sun exposure.

Happy holidays and happy hair styling, beach babes!
