Neither short nor long, the bob raises style questions: is it really versatile enough to keep things interesting? Here are 3 possibilities to keep your look fresh for the beach.

For a hippie chic beach hairstyle: a wavy bob

Leaving your hair loose and wavy when hitting the beach is a no-brainer because beach waves are, well, beachy! Don't waste time curling your hair as it will only go flat the minute you hit the water – instead, profit from the salt in the water to give your hair natural texture. Tousle your hair while it dries in the sun without combing it to get the look.

If you want a more pronounced wob, twist a few strands of your hair tightly and let them dry like for more a more defined look. Finally, don't forget to add some hair oil to your ends to prevent dryness.

For a high fashion beach look: a wet look bob

What better hairstyle than a wet look bob when you spend all day swimming in the ocean, playing volleyball in the sand and sunbathing in a lounge chair? To give more style to your bob this summer, give it a wet effect.

Instead of your usual wet look spray or gel, opt for an oil. Filled with deeply nourishing elements, and enriched with SPF protection, an oil like Solar Sublime by L'Oréal Professionnel will prevent both the sun and the salt from harming your hair while giving it that wet and shiny look. To make sure your hair stays tucked behind your ears all day long, use a couple of bobby pins at the back.

For an urban beach look: a braided bob

There's no need to have long hair to try an elaborate braided hairstyle- a bob lends just enough length to do so! The choice is yours to use French or Dutch braiding techniques depending on your hair texture and personal style.

Whether you go for one large braid or four side by side, this updo is great for keeping your hair in place at the beach with style. It will also hold in your hair oil for extra conditioning!
