Post-Beach Summer Hair: Loose Twist vs. Undone Braid

  • v/s"
Beachy loose twist vs textured side braid

Transitioning from the surf to a sunset soiree doesn't have to require a complete wash-and-blow dry routine. These two hairstyles are designed to work with post-beach hair – just pick your preferred look.

Post-Beach Loose Twist

The Style: Instead of fighting your hair's natural post-beachy state – embrace it! Up the texture ante by misting the lengths with L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wild Stylers Beach Waves and then give the style some definition by creating a deep side part and gently twisting a small section at the front, pinning it just behind the ear.

The Look: Tousled waves are the ultimate summertime look, while the addition of the twist gives the style a pretty finish. Pair it with a breezy summer dress or blouse, throw on some funky sunnies and you'll be ready to go from beach to boardwalk.

What The Editor's Say: Fashionistas will use every styling trick in the book to try and recreate effortless beachy waves. If your hair is naturally channelling that vibe, take it and run with it!

Post-Beach Undone Braid

The Style: A day on the sand and in the surf often leaves hair feeling slightly gritty. Work with it by using a dry shampoo like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Morning After Dust on greasy roots and then loosely gather the naturally textured lengths into a maxi braid over one shoulder.

The Look: Braided looks are huge – and combining it with beachy texture puts a summery spin on the style. All that's missing is a glamorous kaftan and chunky jewellery. (And maybe a fruity beverage in hand!)

What The Editor's Say: If your post-beach hair tends to be on the wild side, a braid gives the locks a tamed and polished finish, while still retaining that beachy element. The beauty of this undone braid is it's likely to stay put, thanks to the naturally gritty texture.
