Do: Create Fun Braids and Twists
Tiny braids and twists are a great way to get your hair out of your face without pulling it up into a ponytail.
Do: Go Nautral
Whether you're planning on taking a dip or not, give your hair a break from heat damage this summer by sporting your natural texture. Besides, what's the point in blow-drying and flat-ironing when the humidity will have its way with your mane as soon as you step outside?
Don't: Sport a Pageant Blowout
Between the bouncy blowout and teased crown, it's unclear whether this Real Housewives of O.C. star is spending a day by the sea or waiting in line to enter the next Miss America competition.
Do: Bump Up Your Bun
Push your bun up towards the crown of your head to add some volume in the front. It's an easy way to tie back strands without sacrificing style.
Do: Pull Your Hair Half Back
Show off your waves by pulling the front pieces back and letting face-framing ones fall out naturally for a pool look that's totally appropriate.
Do: Go Sideways
Buns and ponytails can get boring after awhile. Spice yours up by creating a deep side part after and pulling your hair down to one side, right behind your ear.
Do: Cover Up
There's nothing sexier than someone who is sun savvy. Scalp burns are painful, not to mention unsightly (especially when they start to peel). Pair your ponytail with a hat to protect your dome and keep you cool.
Do: Rock Second-Day Hair
Went out with the girls last night and got all dolled up? Wake up and gently shake out curled hair for waves even Gisele Bündchen would be envious of.
Do: Let Your Hair Down
It's perfectly fine to not have tamed tresses at the beach. Salt water can actually be a styling product of it's own, so take a dip and don't fuss over your hair for a carefree tousle.
Don't: Forget a Hair Elastic When Needed
We're all for letting your hair down and having some fun, but when surfing (or anything else that involves a wet suit) leaving your hair down can get in the way and hang exactly where you don't want itin front of your face.
