Chilled Out Hairstyles: Surfer Girl Waves vs. Middle-Part Wet Look

Would you rather hit the beach or hang by the pool? Whatever your summer splash style, there's a hairstyle to match! Make your selection between these summer girl waves or a middle-part wet look.

Surfer girl waves

Hey beach babe - this textured and curly hairstyle swept casually over one eye is what summer days are all about! These relaxed beachy waves are a great option if you're growing out your current colour (or missed your salon appointment!) as the essence of the look embraces those darker, visible roots. This style looks best on shoulder to mid-length hair, giving it a modern and casual finish.

How to style it: After roughly blow-drying your hair, spritz L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Wild Stylers Beach Waves through the lengths and then use the tips of your fingers to scrunch the product into the hair, lifting it upwards as you go. This application technique will encourage a tousled and textured finish.

Centre-part wet look

That 'I-just-emerged-from-the-pool' sleekness is the epitome of a sexy summer look. The wet look style is a versatile trend that's had a serious moment in recent times on the runway. Your styling options range from confining the wet look to just around the centre-part roots or giving the entire head a sleek finish. Dive in!

How to style it: After washing, create a pin-perfect centre-part and then use a wide-tooth comb to gently smooth out the hair. Then, take a hairdryer with a nozzle attachment and aim it along the direction of the hair. Once dry, use a fine-tooth comb to spread gel from the centre-part along the hair and set with L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Wet Domination Shower Shine.

So this summer, will you opt for a beachy vibe or keep things a little more slick?
