Are you heading to an island getaway this summer? Whether it's a girls' hen weekend away or a romantic couples' summer trip, a beach club visit is a must. These trendy hotspots are ideal for getting into the holiday spirit but, when the temperatures soar how do you keep your hair looking tamed in the heat? In this blog, you will find our top beach club hairstyles, which are guaranteed to keep you cool and feeling confident in the sun.

The effect of humidity on your hair

The humidity can play havoc with your hair and hair extensions, the damp environment means your hair absorbs excess water from the atmosphere making it go from sleek to frizzy in no time. To avoid a frizzy hairstyle in the sun we recommend avoiding hair-down styles as they are more difficult to tame, hair-down hairstyles are more exposed, which means they will absorb more of the water vapour and induce frizziness. 

Hair serum is your best friend at the beach, add a small amount to the ends of your hair to reduce frizz, and add a strong hold hairspray once you've created your chosen hairstyle to ensure it stays in place until the sun goes down. 

1. Loose Messy Bun For The Beach Club Vibe

The classic messy bun can transition into a holiday hairstyle effortlessly. This casual hairstyle is perfect for a laid-back beach club vibe, the style will secure your hair off your neck and shoulders, avoiding unwanted hair becoming stuck to your warm skin.

This style is great for women with medium-thickness hair as they can create a full-looking bun, however, if you're lacking the extra volume you need to pull off this hairstyle you can add a Messy Bun hair scrunchie,  these pre-styled scrunchies simply wrap around your bun like a hair bobble and provide added style and volume to tiny buns.

An easy-to-achieve hairstyle, like a ponytail is understated but can be instantly elevated when paired with loose waves. The loose waves enhance the sunkissed glow of your hair and can make a simple ponytail look more put together and chic.

4. A Sleek Bun For Holiday Evenings

A sleek bun looks super stylish and elegant on all hair types and it's super easy to achieve. To create a sleek bun hairstyle, start by applying gel to wet hair. The gel will help to create a sleek and polished look. Begin by taking a small amount of gel and evenly distributing it throughout your damp hair. Use your fingers or a comb to ensure that the gel is evenly spread from roots to ends.

Gather all of your hair into a high or low ponytail position, depending on your preference. Secure the hair into a sleek bun with hair elastic, for a polished and secure bun, use bobby pins to further secure the bun by tucking any loose strands underneath the elastic.

Top Tip: Creating this style with wet hair will help to keep you cool in the sun
