What look do you like to rock more during the summer? Beach waves or flaves? Let's compare the two.
The hairstyle: Beach waves are loose, irregular, and slightly messy waves that are supposed to look like you were just swimming in the sea (hence the name, ''beach'' waves).
The style: These waves look especially great on light-colored hair (think platinum or polar blonde) and have a bohemian, hippie chic aspect to them. Flowy tops and dresses look best with this style.
What the editors say: Beach waves may be a very casual look, but they have never gone out of style. People love their chilled vibe and how versatile they are: you can wear this hairstyle when you're relaxing getting a tan on the sand and then out on the town later at night.
The hairstyle: Flaves are "flat waves" and are more defined and require a bit more styling than beach waves.
The style: Flavy hairstyles have been spotted on it girls, fashionistas, and on the runways over this past year. We recommend wearing preppy, sophisticated outfits with flaves to really show off the look.
What the editors say: This hairstyle is the perfect cross between beach waves and Hollywood waves. It's perfect for someone who likes wavy hairstyles but wants to look more polished and "put together." We know that we'll be seeing this style a lot this summer!
