4 runway braids for the beach

It's nearly summertime, and the runway is hotting up with inspiring hairstyles. Today's focus is on the super versatile braid: from simple plaits to beachy braided crowns, what's your perfect plaited hairstyle for the beach?

Braided crown

Be the queen of the sea with this regal style that's not only practical for keeping hair out of your eyes, but it also calls out for floral accessories and fresh-faced, summery make-up. It feels like we're walking through a field of wild flowers on the coast! Don't weigh your hair down with excess product, a natural finish is essential for this look.

Messy pigtail fishtails

Pigtails are no longer for schoolgirls, they've grown up and rebelled! Showing the versatility of a braid, this style not only features messy pigtails, but they metamorphose into twin fishtails at the nape of the neck! Keep the boho vibe alive by using a texturizing spray on dry hair like Next Day Hair from the Wild Stylers line by L'Oréal Professionnel.

Sleek and chic to the side

Stay serene at the beach with this cool-as-a-cucumber braid that snakes over one shoulder. Perfect for transitioning your look from day to evening pool party, we recommend a glossy fixing spray like Infinium Pure by Tecni.ART to protect against humidity-induced frizz.

Messy four-strand side braid

Three-stranded braids aren't enough of a challenge for some of us! These days, beachy braided looks include examples like this four stranded over-the-shoulder version. The objective is not perfection, even the most ambidextrous among us find four strands a handful to braid. Embrace different sizes , textures and flyaways, you're on holiday!

Whenever you spend time in the sun, especially if you have colored or naturally-red hair, make sure you're protecting your locks with an anti-UV spray like Solar Sublime sun protection, which also gives hair a healthy shine.
