Mid-length beach waves: glamorous surfer style

The mid-length cut in beachy waves is the pinnacle of deliberately-disheveled elegance, straight from the heads of Californian girls living the beach life. However, this natural-looking "back from the beach" style isn't so easy to imitate!

Mid-length beach waves: surfing the waves of style

There's nothing new to this wavy look that so suits a bathing suit. And yet, beach waves remain a popular hairstyle option. The look seems to always be at the cusp of style, riding a trend wave that never crashes into the sand: it-girls, hair stylists and regular human mortals can't get enough of it. The reason for its worldwide success is its perfect balance between easygoing nonchalance and sophistication.

Beach waves: for those who want glamour without being too sexy

These "back from the beach" waves are perfect to glam up mid-length hair without having to go for 1940s pin-up curls. While they might be full-bodied and sexy, they can sometimes border into too much, especially for those who aren't ready to channel their inner Dita Von Teese. A solution to this hair dilemma: surfer waves! If you happen to have a triangular-shaped face, professionals recommend this style on your mid-length locks, as it softly balances out the proportions.

Beach waves prefer blonds

"By opting for a golden blonde base with lighter honey tones on the tips, your complexion will glow as if it's just back from vacation" assures Denis Holbecq, hairstyle ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel. However, whether you're blonde, redhead or brunette, the balance between overworked waves and deliberately disheveled hair is difficult to achieve alone. What makes a real hair professional is their ability to produce a truly natural-looking effect!
