#2)  The Rumbled Lob

You read that right. This style is actually called “the rumpled lob,” a combination of a long bob that is rumpled or slightly messy. The rumpled lob has been making waves quite a bit recently, lauded for it’s tousle-and-go ease.

This style doesn’t require any neatness whatsoever, for that sexy rolled around in bed look that can easily be taken to the beach. For added texture and length, this particular bob can easily get rid of that boredom feeling that shorter bobs often exude.

The rumpled bob looks even cooler with highlights for the beach waves look and makes the perfect go-to style for those tropical getaways.

#3) Full-on Fringe

Full bangs evoke a sense of retro youthful fun that many people can actually pull off. Even if you don’t think you can achieve bangs due to the natural parting of your hair, you actually can with training.

One way that you can train your bangs is to blow dry them forward every morning while wearing a thick band at night that will keep them down. It might be uncomfortable at first, but the results will pay off in no time.

Be daring and try trimming your own bangs or search for a stylist that knows how to give you the right fringe to frame your beautiful face.

#4) Go Curly

The sky is the limit for those of you with curly hair. Embrace your natural texture this summer by letting it do what it does best or you can cut it into a classic bob or by going to a Devachan salon . Curly hair is beautiful when it’s left to it’s own inhibitions. Or if you prefer to tame your hair, there are tons of styles to try out.

Take it from a curly girl, curly hair looks way more complicated than it is. You can fishtail braid, milkmaid braid, bun it, let it hang, create some bangs, whatever you like.

To protect the hair, coat the hair with moisturizing conditioners to stave off frizz at the beach caused by the sea salt, wind and sand.

#5) Lay It On Thick
