Beachy, boho hair doesn’t have to look messy, in fact just a few loose waves and not too much texturiser will leave you with a grown-up, sexy hairstyle that’s low maintenance but highly fashionable.
Sienna is queen of beachy boho hair and it never looks dated or young-looking. Add a light mist of sea salt spray to damp hair then scrunch with your fingers. Keep it in your bag for top-ups throughout the day.
She used to be all about the ‘bed head’ look but now her hair is longer, Alexa Chung prefers a more grown-up feathered look. Still natural and undone, add a finishing balm through the ends of your hair to stop frizz.
A textured bob like Cate Blanchett’s is great for adding movement to shorter hair. The layers stop it looking too poofy and add a natural texture to her style.
Beach hair doesn’t just have to be about the waves. You can add texture and depth to your style by using colour just like Mila Kunis. The lighter colour through the ends creates a soft carefree look we love.
Jennifer Garner’s hair is all about volume! Wrap sections around curling tongs for big, bouncy beachy waves that start at cheek level. This looks even better when the curls have dropped.
A tousled centre parted fringe like Diane Kruger helps break up curls for a more feminine look. Great for framing your face too.
For a more glossy beachy look like Katie Holmes, blow-dry your hair without a brush and tilt your head upside down to achieve as much volume as possible.
Any hair length can try beachy waves and SJP’s graduated colour and relaxed finish proves it. The waves stop her mass of hair dragging her face down too.
Salt sprays and texturising crèmes help to make hair look thicker and fuller so if you’ve got fine, straggly strands that need a bit of plumping like Kate Moss, go for a wave!
Keira Knightley’s textured mid-length hair is super stylish! Ask your hairdresser to cut in layers that rest on your cheekbones around the front for an easy, wearable beach babe look.
