Achieve beach-ready hair before stepping outside by braiding your hair and going to sleep with slightly damp tresses. Then, wake up, undo the braids, spritz a quick mist (such as John Masters Organics Sea Mist Spray with Lavender), and you'll be ready for fun in the sun. If you don’t have a night to wait, you can follow Josh Rosenbrook's detailed how-to for achieving this look in minutes.

A popular look “du jour,” braids exist in many forms, all being equally fashionable. Adventurous braiders can be spotted sporting looks such as braided center-parts and braids chalked or dyed in various hues.

Crown Braid

The ultimate crown of braids looks great atop the hair and equally gorgeous if created in the back (consider accenting back braids with an elaborate hair accessory such as a comb or garland). The quick trick is to create two French braids, one at each side of the part, then align the two braids, either in the front near your forehead or in the back, securing in place with hidden bobby pins. This flattering look will draw attention to your face, highlighting your beautiful features.

Topknot

Not only do topknots offer the perfect on-the-go beauty effect, but they also conceal side effects of hot weather (i.e., greasy hair). A quick twist results in a stunning high-fashion undo, moonlighting as a tool to keep you cool. Simply pull your hair into a high ponytail, separate into two parts, winding each part around the other, wrapping with a ponytail, finalizing with bobby pins.

Bun

A long-standing classic, the bun provides a sophisticated method to pristinely keep hair out of the way. Simply pull hair back, create a ponytail, wrap the hair around, and secure in place with a hair tie and hidden bobby pins. A bun creates a simple and chic statement, which may be tightly wrapped or loosened to create a “messy bun.”
