The Ultimate Surfer Hair


The surfer hairstyle is one that has stood the test of time since the trend began in the 1950’s when bonafide Southern California surfers embraced a ‘beach bum’ attitude that developed into a lifestyle everyone wanted to emulate. Every Summer, we’re inundated with images of tousled golden, sun bleached hair against bronzed skin. It’s an effortless look that exudes a relaxed, positive vibe.

What’s most important when creating this look is being free and not over particular, it must always look like the style has just happened with no effort at all.

Bring out sun kissed highlights with my Bomb Shell Pure Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner and towel dry before using my Big It Up! Volume Boosting Mousse to the lengths and ends of your hair. Creating a little unruly texture is important so scrunch hair from the ends up using your hands to encourage the desired tousled waves. Either leave to dry naturally or blast with a diffuser to speed up the process. Finish with my Coco Licious Coconut Water Texture Spray to enhance the appearance of having just left the ocean.

Surfer hair should always be messy, wavy and casual so don’t overthink it and scrunch scrunch scrunch until your waves look like they’ve come straight from Huntington Beach.
