Some important things to remember about hairstyles for the beach are:

Beach hair needs to be fun, when you fix your hair for the beach it needs to be fixed in a style that shows your age and how excited you are about life. For instance, if you wear your hair down and free, it reflects that you are young (or youthful) and that you are independent. If you were your hair up in an updo or braid it, show that you are a rather conservative person who respects your body.

Beach hair needs to be easy; you do not need to have a complicated hairstyle when it is going to just get messed up. You want something that you can brush or comb right back into place or something that you do not have to worry about until you get home. They need to protect your hair and scalp (add the conditioner) Always add conditioner to your hair that way the sun and ocean water does not damage it. Chlorine in pools may also damage your hair.

Beach hairstyles need to be casual; you never want to look like you are going to a dance on the beach. You need to give the impression that you are relaxed and there to have fun.
