Updo braid for the beach

It’s summer and you’re ready to hit the beach. You’ve got the perfect nails and the cutest swimsuit and sandals. The weather is hot and perfect for a day in the sun. But what about your hair? If you’re bored with ponytails and buns, check out these updos that will keep you looking super cute on the beach despite the wind and waves.

Fishtail Braid

This style gives off strong mermaid vibes, which is perfect for a day spent seaside. Not only does it look great, but it also prevents tangles and keeps your lovely locks out of your face. A fishtail braid pairs especially well with balayage color for a true beach babe look.

Quad Braids

This is an awesome updo for shorter hair that might not be quite long enough for some other styles. Hair is sectioned into fourths and french braided to the crown. Then all the braids are gathered together into a ponytail that’s far from ordinary.

Bantu Knots

Want a style that will have you ready for a night out as soon as you leave the beach after sunset? Bantu knots put up damp and allowed to dry and set in the sun will give you awesome curls when you take them down without any further heat styling.

Double Dutch Pigtails

This style works great for all but the shortest haircuts. Hair is parted down the center and each section braided double-dutch style. You can braid all the way to the ends or stop at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic. If you don’t want the tails flying free in the breeze, twist them up into a loose bun at the base of each braid.

Braided Crown Bun

This style is soft and feminine, the perfect look for a romantic sunset walk on the beach. Crown braids start in the front and continue around the sides to the nape of the neck. The hair is braided to the ends. Pull on sections of the braid for a loose messy look and then wind the tails of the braids around each other to form a low bun in the back.
