Cute & functional vacation hairstyles

Why spend hours on complicated hairstyles when you could be out there having fun on your vacation? We've got you covered with simple yet stunning styles that will last through long beach days or windy autumn strolls.

1. Effortless beach waves

Nothing says "I'm on vacation" like effortlessly tousled beach waves. This hairstyle captures the essence of salty air and carefree days. Here's how to get the look:

  1. Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo to remove any product buildup.
  2. Apply a sea salt spray or lightweight mousse to damp hair and scrunch to create texture.
  3. Let your hair air dry, or use a diffuser on a low heat setting.
  4. Gently tousle your hair with your fingers to enhance the waves.
  5. Finish with a lightweight hairspray to keep the waves in place.

2. Chic low bun

For a sophisticated yet simple look that's perfect for exploring town or enjoying a sunset dinner, go for the chic low bun:

  1. Brush your hair back and secure it into a low ponytail.
  2. Twist the ponytail and wrap it around its base to form a bun.
  3. Secure the bun with bobby pins, tucking in any loose ends.
  4. Pull a few strands loose around your face for a relaxed vibe.
  5. Lock in the style with a flexible hold hairspray.

3. Elegant box braids

For natural hair in need of a low-maintenance, protective style, opt for box braids. These not only look gorgeous, but they’re also the easiest way to take care of curly hair during a beach vacation. Here’s how to get the look:

  1. Detangle clean, dry hair using a wide-tooth comb to ensure smooth braiding.
  2. Divide your hair into small sections using clips or hair ties.
  3. If you're using hair extensions, attach them at the base of your natural hair and braid as one.
  4. Secure the ends of each braid with a hair elastic or a thin piece of the same hair used for the extensions.
  5. Dip the ends in hot water to seal them and apply a moisturizing oil or conditioner to prevent fraying.
  6. Trim any excess extension hair for a neat finish.

4. Classic high ponytail

Whether you're hitting the pool, going on a morning hike or enjoying some shopping, a high ponytail keeps your hair off your face when embarking on outdoor adventures. Here’s how to style a ponytail that lasts throughout the day:

  1. Brush your hair up and gather it at the crown of your head.
  2. Secure the ponytail with a hair elastic.
  3. Wrap a small section of hair around the elastic to conceal it.
  4. Polish the look with a shine-enhancing serum or some light gel to keep flyaways at bay.

5. Half-up top knot

The half-up top knot strikes the perfect balance between a casual and elevated look, making it ideal for a day of sightseeing, restaurant hopping or hanging out with friends:

  1. Take the top section of your hair and secure it in a high ponytail.
  2. Twist the ponytail and coil it around its base to form a bun.
  3. Secure the bun with bobby pins.
  4. Leave the bottom half of your hair loose and flowing.
  5. Take out some front pieces to delicately frame your face and add dimension.
  6. Spritz a lightweight hairspray to keep the bun in place without stiffness.

Different climates mean different hair needs

Different vacation destinations mean different environments, and your hair care routine should adapt accordingly. Here are some quick tips to keep your hair looking its best no matter where you go:

  • Warmer Destinations: Opt for lightweight hair products, and don't forget to use a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair hydrated.
  • Colder Destinations: Use less product to avoid weighing down your hair. Deep conditioning treatments can help combat dryness from chilly temperatures.
  • Humid Destinations: Embrace the frizz! Instead of trying to fight it, work with your hair's natural texture and use anti-humidity products.
