Straight Stands and a Boater
Wherever you go, consider the ghd Gold Styler, $199 your ultimate travel companion—the super light hot tool straightens, curls, and fits in your beach bag. And don’t forget to protect your locks – a boater hat does wonders (and makes mama proud).
Beach Braided Bun
Is there anything more IG worthy than braids on the beach? Beads add even more oomph.
Natural Hair Vibes
Rock your natural hair when you’re on Spring Break–there’s no faking it here.
Rose gold adds standout dimension to shorter locks. Whatever style you sport, don’t forget your hoops
Dramatic Side Sweep
For maximum beach babe drama, go for a deep side part. How deep is too deep? The limit does not exist.
Messy Mid Pony
Leave pieces out from your pony to get that perfectly imperfect, lowkey calle ocho look.
Shine bright like a hot pink diamond. Cool girl pink strands are all you need to catch that cutie’s eye on spring break.
Pull it up but leave your baby hairs out. This ultra-cool Cali girl style will take you from the beach to out dancing.
A ponytail is always a great look, especially because it’s so utilitarian. Hair is out of the way so you can devote your full attention to pizza.
Be mysterious with long, dark, straight strands.
Channel your inner Kim Kardashian West Bubblegum pink + that flash tho = c’est magnifique!
You might be mistaken for a Parisian when you rock these bangs, casually topped with the chicest chapeau this side of the Marais. Don’t want to commit to the chop? Try clip in’s!
Keep hair undone, piece-y and off your face if you’re going for avant-garde beauty.
Blues the Hue
If a blue hair bob doesn’t get you ready for festival season, what will? The best part is that you can wash it out in time for your next class—try Splat 30 Wash No Bleach Formula in Midnight Indigo, $10.99
Georgia O’Keefe vibes are yours with slightly off-center gelled back hair that is doubly face framing. We like Aveda confixor™ Liquid Gel, $21

A one-side braid does wonders, especially when hair is strategically pulled out for depth and draamaaa.
A hairband adds chic poolside—we can’t get enough of this does-it-all accessory, especially when it’s just too hot.
A casual, sleek up-do is everything while sailing the Bahamian blue seas.
It’s a moody vibe every night on Spring Break, let those curls roam free.
Staying Slaying in the French Quarter? Say no more because that beret isn’t going to wear itself.
Keep hair practical if you’re going into the wild for your spring getaway—you’ll probably go on at least one hike. Make sure to pack your fave dad hat and leave hair wavy.
Feeling like an earth mother goddess? If not, just add extensions.
Kick your ponytail up a knotch and unleash your inner glamazon in piece.
