5 super-cute beach-approved accessories and hairstyles


Sun, salt, sand, wind, and humidity can play havoc with your hair, making it dry and brittle. So it stands to reason when you're spending as much of your holiday time at the beach as you can, it’s really easy to wind up with a tousled, tangled mess.

If this sounds like your average beach trip, don’t despair! We’ve got you covered.

Don’t let a bad hair day ruin your fun at the beach! With a little help from Scunci and these five easy-to-achieve hairstyles, you can keep your hair looking great all day long without worrying it will fall apart thanks to ocean winds or high humidity.

How to choose the right hairstyle for a day at the beach.

When choosing the right hairstyle for a day at the beach, simplicity is key. You want something easy to manage, keep your eyes free of hair, and will look good whether you’re taking a dip, playing beach volleyball, or chilling out with a good book and summer tunes. And finally, you want a hairstyle that’ll look good despite the sun and wind.

  • Need something simple and easy to manage? Go with an up-do or half-up-half-down. 
  • Want your hair off your face? Try a headband or high pony and visor. 
  • And if you’re after a look that’s good for sun and wind, curl your hair and pin it up into a bun.

The bottom line is you don’t want a lot of fussing and upkeep to worry about. Accessories are your friend! Any one of these 5 looks would be perfect—all you need now is to choose the one that best suits your unique style


1. All up, but make it CUTE.

What’s more perfect for the beach than a simple bouncy up-do? It’s ideal for keeping your hair out of your face on a hot day; you’ll look cute and keep your cool.

Simply sweep all your hair up into a high ponytail and secure at your crown with an your favourite Scunci scrunchie!

Try adding some cute braids to your high pony like below. EXTRA. 


2. Take on the CLAW

Our latest claw clips make beach do’s a piece of cake. What could be simpler than adding some fast-holding flair to your standard pony—guaranteed to hold your hair back whatever the beach throws at it! 

These are also great for creating a quick and easy bun or French twist, particularly if your hair’s wet (it won’t stretch and snap your locks like some elastics and lets it dry naturally into luscious curls). 

For an alternative take on the French twist that looks oh-so stunning, you can also gather your hair into a low pony on your nape, then split into two equal sections and twist those around each other before curling your hair up into the bun and securing with a large claw. Here’s a tutorial with a variety of styles.

Don’t forget to allow wisps of hair to fall around your face, ears and neck to soften the look. Bellissima!


3. Go half up-half down

This style is versatile and can be dressed up or down, depending on your outfit.

Simply pull half of your hair up into a high ponytail and leave the other half down. It gives you big hair height at the crown and some serious bouncy style for a look that’s all now.

Take your half up-half down look to the next level with some scrunchie with tails action, or make sure everything stays put (and still look pretty) with our elegant bobby pin slides.

Even try some cute braids like this to stand out from the crowd. So pretty!


4. Messy beach buns with a visor

Keep the sun (and hair!) out of your eyes while you have fun by the water with a visor. We’ve designed our new Visor Headwrap to give you the comfort and functionality of a headwrap and chic sun protection all-in-one. 

Wearing a visor with big bold bun is sure to turn heads at the beach this season. Here’s how to Create (or re-create) the look:

  1. If you don’t have beach wavy hair already, use your curling wand to create those gentle waves. 
  2. Sweep your locks up into a high pony or messy bun and secure with a band.
  3. Add your Visor or Visor Headwrap, and you’re good to go!

5. Beach aftercare! The twist & dry scrunchie & turban 

A day at the beach can dry your hair out, right? So shampoo & condition is essential. Ditch those old, scratchy towels and get ready for the Scunci Super Absorbent Microfiber Fitted Hair Turban. This towel will protect your hair from harming friction caused by traditional cotton or micro-terry cloth fabric with a button closure to secure it tightly around your head while you dry off.
