With temperatures predicted to reach 50C this weekend, there’s no doubt that city slickers across the country will head for the beach – and we’re predicting a rise in unfussy, salt-strewn hair trends taking over the street style scene. Thanks to a number of beauty brands who’ve bottled the beach (literally) into appealing surf and salt sprays, those who are cooling off indoors can enjoy ocean-infused waves without leaving the refuge of their air-conditioned abodes.
Using salt spray, you can easily style your hair into damp, carefree waves that rival a day spent at the beach.
#1: First determine your hair type before investing in the right product. If you’re blessed with naturally wavy hair, you can reach for a texturizing spray, such as Ouai Wave Spray, to amp up your tresses.
#2: Very straight hair could use the gritty texture of Bumble and bumble Surf Spray.
#3: Those with thick curls will benefit from Herbivore Coconut + Sea Salt Beach Wave Mist, which harnesses the hydrating power of aloe water to keep your scalp moisturized. An added bonus? It contains the same degree of salinity as the Pacific Ocean, meaning it’s the closest you’ll get to a seaside escape.
Here, the five best beach sprays worth their salt.
