How do you wear your hair on vacation? As a woman finding the best vacation hairstyle is important as it correlates with the various activities on the vacation itinerary and what hair products or hair tools to pack. If you’re looking for protective styles for the beach, your next family trip, foodie adventure or historical tour, here are some vacation hairstyles to consider
Box braids are a great style for vacations because they’re easy to manage. You can use them to create other hairstyles and you still have the ability to cleanse and oil your scalp. If you plan to do water activities, box braids can weigh your hair down and take a long time to dry.
Crochet Braids are hands down one our favorite hairstyles for a vacation. The best part about crochet braids is the ability to get them in different curls, braids, twist, and loc patterns. Installation of crochet braids are usually under three hours and drying time after washing or swimming is quick.
Faux Locs are great for long trips, whether its the beach, long-term backpacking or round-the-world trips. Faux locs are are easy to maintain and look better as time goes by. If you’re a lazy natural or like to save money, faux locs are pretty expensive when done professionally. They also take a very long time to finish depending on the method used by the stylist. The results, however, are beautiful when done the right way.
Weaves/Sew-Ins are a popular style for women with relaxed and natural hair. This style gives the ability to rock the same everyday hairstyles while protecting your own hair. To wear a high ponytail or buns, consider getting a vixen sew-in. If you plan on getting your hair wet, we advise using human hair and making sure your scalp is fully dry to avoid mold buildup.
Twists, Braids or Buns if your not a fan of adding synthetic or human hair on your head because of cost, time or other reasons, you can always rock your natural or relaxed hair on vacation. You can make easy vacation hairstyles by braiding your hair in cornrows, halo twists, two-strand or mini twists, high or low buns or braids. The options are limitless. When styling with twists or braids, you can rock a puff, braid-out or twist out towards the end of your trip.
Wigs are one of the easiest vacation hairstyles to rock! They are literally instant hairstyles. You can opt for a kinky-curly full wig. If you plan on wearing wigs to the beach be prepared to sweat a little more.
