Stay cool this summer with a fresh wavy hairstyle! Do you prefer beach waves or flaves? Let's compare the two...
The hairstyle: Loose and relaxed - to the point of being slightly messy - beach waves will make you look like you've just come back from a holiday by the sea (hence the name "beach waves").
The style: These waves look especially great on light-coloured hair (think platinum or polar blonde) and have a bohemian, hippie-chic feel to them. Flowy tops and dresses look best with this style.
What the editors say: Beach waves are a casual look, but that hasn't stopped many of our favourite A-listers from wearing them on the red carpet! Always stylish, beach waves a perfect choice for summer: wear this hairstyle to frolic on the beach by day, and then take them out on the town by night.
The hairstyle: Flaves are "flat waves", which means they're more uniform, defined, and require more styling than beach waves.
The style: Flave hairstyles have been spotted on it girls, fashionistas, and top models over this past year and they look great with polished, sophisticated outfits.
What the editors say: This easy-going, but put-together, hairstyle is a perfect cross between beach waves and vintage-inspired Hollywood waves. If you're a fan of wavy hairstyles but prefer a more refined approach to hair styling, then this might be just the look for you!
