Hairstyles For Blonde Hair #1: Mermaid Fishtail Braid

This is the ultimate not-so-basic braid that looks like it took hours to create but trust us, it’s easier than it looks. Laidback enough to wear on the beach, yet dressy enough to wear out for evening drinks, the versatility of this hairstyle is a winner. This Siren of the Sea-inspired look is flawless on light strands because it shows off the pretty dimension that blonde hair is so admired for.

How To Create This Look

  1. Brush hair into a tight high ponytail and secure with a clear elastic.
  2. Divide ponytail into two equal sections.
  3. Grab a small piece from the back of one side and cross it over the inside of the other section.
  4. Repeat on the other side and continue all the way down.
  5. Gently tug on each side of the braid all the way down to add width and texture for a more relaxed style. Pull out face-framing pieces and spritz with a hairspray to keep locks in place.

Tip: for thicker hair, help the braid to stand higher by sliding in a bobby pin up and through the elastic.

Hairstyles For Blonde Hair #2: Surfer Babe Beach Waves

Ah, blonde hair and beach waves a union made in hair heaven. Maybe you’re stuck in the office, but at least your hair can look like it was hanging at the beach all day. The reason we love the blonde hair/surf-side strands combo is the multi-tonal effect it brings you. Sun-kissed locks have never looked better.

How To Create This Look

  1. Spritz in a good texturising mist, like Redken Fashion Waves 07 on damp hair.

  2. Section hair by separating pieces and rolling them into mini buns, secure with bobby pins or hair clips.
  3. Let hair air dry.
  4. Once hair is dry, remove clips for heat-free California beach babe waves!

Tip: if you want a more refined look, try gently curling pieces of hair (with a heat protecting serum) once hair is dried for more volume.
