Will Smith said it best: "Summer, summer, summertime/Time to sit back and unwind." When you're relaxing on the beach this summer the last thing you want to worry about is your hair. Take a cue from Nicole Richie with this beach-worthy look. Rock your natural waves with a small headband braid for an extra twist that's super low-maintenance.
For a hairstyle that'll look great no matter how much sand or sea water gets into, try Vanessa Hudgens loose, wavy tresses and braided bangs. Just rub in a dab shine serum to dry, unstyled hair to keep it looking shiny without going overboard with hair products.
Planning to rock a fedora next time you hit the beach? Try some soft barrel waves underneath it like Diane Kruger. No touch-ups needed, plus the more tousled they get the better they'll look, which means more fun in the sun for you!
Getting ready for the beach shouldn't be like getting ready for a fashion show, but sometimes you want to rock a hairstyle that isn't totally casual. Try a super easy, but totally adorable look like Lily Collins pinned-back hairstyle. Just take two twists from the front and pin them back on each side of your head.
Want a beach hairstyle with a little more oomph than just a regular old braid? Let your hair down like Jordin Sparks and opt for a thick french braid along the front of your hairline. It'll help keep hair out of your face even against the cool ocean breeze.
Hilary Duff's no-fuss updo is perfect whether you're hitting the waves or just soaking up some rays. Get the look by taking a three-inch section of hair and pinning it back on top of your head. Sweep up your length into a swirling bun and tie with an elastic band.
Florence Welch's wavy medium-length hairstyle is perfect for frolicking in the sand or water. If you have bangs like her just spritz a bit of medium-hold hairspray before you go to keep them from flying away.
