Apart from the unpacked suitcases and cracking up your travel itinerary, you can’t help but think about how to style your hair according to a place and time!

To make things easier for you, we’ve come up with an exclusive holiday hairstyles guide you can look up to in time of need! Stylish but easy to maintain, what more could a girl want, right? To make it a little easier for you, we’ve separated this post into four parts based on the occasion, place and time

effortless travel hairstyles? 

Let’s be honest, almost every other person is planning to go on a vacation this summer, especially after the year everyone had, it's about time we make this one memorable. You're likely going to run into people you know at the airport and who wants to look “simple” when you know you can look stunning [extra points if you get the reference]

 Yes even if it’s at the airport, rock your favourite sweatsuit with an adorable messy bun or a loose ponytail. The most important factor when it comes to travelling is your comfort and nothing describes a comfy yet trendy outlook like a messy bun. A scrunchie, a clip or a clutch, it’s either a matter of five seconds or a minute but you will end up looking like a chic mess
Most of the time, people pick up comfortable sweat suits and loungewear while travelling especially when it's a long run to your final destination.

We suggest going with a messy bun is the best way to go. Easy, efficient and does the job. You can also twist your hair up and put on a small clutch to give it a more trendy look. Pull out some strands along the side of your face and voila! You're good to go.

beach braided hairstyles that'll keep you feeling cool all summer

Whether you’re in Hawaii or Malibu pier, a big chunk of your day is going to be alongside a body of water. Summer and water go along perfectly but you know what doesn't? Summer, water and sticky strands of hair on your face. Three best options if you want to enjoy a day out in sun and the sea are :

Two top knot braids - Very much in trend right now it's the perfect hairstyle to match it with a swimsuit and beach shorts. It gives off a very chill vibe and keeps the hair out of your face for almost 95% of the day. Amazing, right? 

One single braid - A very protective yet cool enough to spend a day out near the pool hairstyle. You can always experiment in several ways when it comes to a single braid and whatever you think goes the best with your outfit and face can make you feel like a princess in a castle! We’re not kidding. 

A High ponytail - Another stunning way to glam up your little beach day out. Keep the hair out of your face and yet pull off a gorgeous Instagram shoot look ;) What more could you want right? 


Importance of heat protection

We all know the amount of damage the sun does to our skin but did you know that protecting your hair from the direct UV rays is equally important? It damages your hair to the extent that there can be moisture loss, fading if you’ve got coloured hair and major hair fall if exposed to the sun for a long time.

 Sunscreen for hair and hair protection on holiday is a thing, yes! You need to include a heat protection spray in your summer beauty routine. Another thing you can do to ensure your hair’s protected is to never leave home without putting your leave-in conditioner. It keeps the moisture locked in and hence does not allow the dust particles or air to dry it out.

A pool party you said?

Now that you're at a party and not just lounging around in the sun, you’ve got to take your glam factor a little bit up the notch and what better way to do it than styling your hair in a gorgeous half up half down updo. Link it with flowers or make a little bun while leaving the rest of your hair down. You can also rock a flower crown with two side little braids that are going to keep the hair out of your face. The possibilities are endless. Literally. 

Make this one summer of your dreams while enjoying some poolside madness at Zero Gravity Dubai, one of the most popular poolside resorts and bars in the world or dip yourself in some vitamin sea at the gorgeous beaches in Ibiza.

Going on a holiday with extensions

Extensions, in general, add a wow factor to your appearance and hence you need to take care of them while you're on holiday! Here are some tips that are going to be helpful when it comes to taking care of your extensions. 

If you're on a beach, pool or near any body of water avoid getting your hair wet if you're wearing extensions and if you want to take a swim, make sure you remove them first. 

Carry a hat with you when out in the sun. The powerful UV rays can cause discolouration. 

Aftercare products like hair brushes and hair oils suitable for your extensions, always keep them handy, you never know when the need can arise. 

Dinner date or a cocktail party? How about both?

This is the time when you have the chance to flaunt your shiny locks in style. You can let your hair down in several ways while going out to clubs, dinner and karaoke!

You can add on extensions and clip on to give your hair a more voluminous texture. Straight, curly or wavy, no matter the type of hair, you can let it flow freely and you’ve got yourself a glamorous look. Slicked back straight hair, blonde/brunette [or any colour] beach waves or curtain bangs with a side of the shaggy cut, you’ve got to try out these styles this summer, if not all, maybe one?

Celebrities have shown us now and then why letting your hair down during nighttime dinner and parties is probably the best way to go. 

We hope our little holiday hairstyles guide can take you through this summer and make your trip a tad bit easier. See you at the beach!!
