Summer is on its way out, but if you’re anything like us, you’re trying to squeeze in as much last-minute beach time as possible. Although we never tire of classic, tousled beach waves, we’ve been lusting after some other looks that will help keep your hair up and safe from the ocean spray. Keep reading to see our 4 favorite styles to rock at the beach this summer.

1. Messy Fishtail

Divide hair into two sections. Grab a strand of hair from one section and cross it over to the other section. Then grab a strand from the second section and cross it over to the first. Continue to do this until you’ve finished the fishtail.

2. Milkmaid Braids

Divide hair into two sections. Loosely braid each section, then cross each one over the head to the other side. Pin in place.

3. Disheveled Bun

Gather hair into a high ponytail at the top of the head. Wrap hair around the base of the ponytail to create a bun. Pin in place.

4. Braided Half-Up, Half-Down

Grab a section of hair from one side of the head and loosely braid it. Do the same with a section on the other side. Pull both braided sections back behind the head and secure with an elastic.
