IV. Side braids with a loose bun
A day at the beach doesn’t mean you have to have perfect hair-in fact, we love messy hairstyles for beach day inspiration!

This is totally a different yet gorgeous hairstyle to give you a unique look, try this cool look of tight braids on one side of your head.

Also, the paired sunglasses will complement the look.
VI. Half-done Waterfall Braid

VII. Messy Fish Tail
Fishtail braids are the perfect solution for the beach, especially for long-haired girls who don’t want their hair to blow in the wind or get tangled in the water. This type of braid also delivers a cool crimped look after you take it out. In just a few hours you’ll be sure to have perfect beachy waves.
VIII. Bubble Ponytail
For a fun twist, try creating the bubble ponytail simply by adding more hairbands throughout your ponytail and pulling your hair slightly to make it loose and messy. This style is an ideal choice for active adventures and chilling near the swimming pool.
IX. Half-Up Braided Style

X. Straw Hat
Hats are a beach essential-not only do they keep your head and face protected from the sun, but they also look stylish and cute! Big straw hats are on-trend right now, just wear your hair down in loose waves and your stunning beach look is complete.
