Holiday Hair


Humidity, frizz, rebellious hair that refuses to cooperate all makes for a stressful time on holiday. Luckily we’ve got the top 5 easy-to-do hairstyles that’ll make you look like a summer goddess come day or night.

French Plaits – Rock the beach chic style with a pair of sleek French plaits – tame unwanted frizz in the humidity, while working one of this season’s killer trends. If like us you struggle to get the symmetry perfect with two plaits, make this style simpler by opting for just one plait. The beauty of this style is that once you take your plait out you’ve got gorgeous beachy waves without having to make any effort at all – it’s a hair win-win!

Milk braids - During hot summer nights abroad, channel your inner Grecian goddess with messy, tousled milk braids. Basically create two plaits on either side and then pin them across your head like a headband using kirbies – simple! This look is perfect for a lazy day by the pool as it’ll keep your hair off your face and the frizz at bay. If your hair struggles with the humidity at night, milk braids will disguise your hair nightmare and make you look like a polished boho babe.


Fishtail plait - For a hassle-free style daytime look, try out fishtail plait – perfect for keeping your hair out of your face whilst having fun in the sea.To add a bit of glamour to this look for the evening, opt for a high pony fishtail combo to instantly update your look day to night.

Natural beach waves - We’re all guilty of overusing straighteners, curling wands, heated rollers, tongs – the list goes on and on! So what better way to treat your tresses than to go au naturale and let your waves flow free! Either let your hair dry naturally after swimming in the sea or use some sea salt spray on towel-dried hair after washing to achieve that chilled surfer girl look. If your hair gets too frizzy in the heat, follow the likes of Beyonce’s lead and add a headband or floppy hat for some hippie flair.

Low messy bun – There is nothing more effortless than a messy bun – it’s the perfect mix of sophisticated and relaxed, making it a perfect go-to style for a summer holiday – especially if you don’t have time to wash your hair when going from beach to bar!You can mix it up with a top knot too – equally as low maintenance as the low bun yet still looks like you’ve made an effort – result!
