The mid-length cut with beach waves is the pinnacle of deliberately dishevelled elegance, straight from the streets of California. However, this natural-looking 'back from the beach' style isn't so easy to imitate!
Mid-length beach waves: surfing the waves of style
There's nothing new to this wavy look that perfectly matches any bikini. And yet, beach waves remain a popular hairstyle choice. Always at the height of style, the look seems to be riding a trend wave that never crashes on the sand: it-girls and hair stylists can't get enough of it. The reason for its worldwide success? Its perfect balance between easy-going nonchalance and sophistication.
Beach waves: the glamour without overdoing the sexy
These 'back from the beach' waves are perfect to glam up mid-length hair without going for 1940s pin-up curls. While full-bodied and sexy, these can sometimes border on too much. Surfer waves solve the dilemma! If you happen to have a triangular-shaped face, professionals recommend this style on your mid-length locks, as it softly balances out the proportions.
Beach waves prefer blondes
'By opting for a golden blonde base with lighter honey tones on the tips, your complexion will glow as if you're just back from holidays,' assures Denis Holbecq, hairstyle ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel. However, whether you're blonde, redhead or brunette, the balance between overworked waves and deliberately dishevelled hair is difficult to achieve alone. A real hair professional is one who makes you look – and even feel – like you just got back from the beach!
