How to create a perfect beach hair look?! Just think of those beautiful beach waves in your hair, for the ultimate summer look. You can create a beach look and beach waves with curling irons or straighteners. But you can also create this look without the use of a heat tool. And that simply by using the right hair products! In collaboration with Haarshop I was able to test a number of products from the wonderful brand Bumble & Bumble to create a perfect beach hair look. Do you want to know if I succeeded with these products?
Beach Hair Look #Hair products
I’ve put together the following hair products to create a surf look, or Beach Hair Look:
- Bumble and Bumble – Surf – Foam Wash Shampoo
- Bumble and Bumble – Surf – Creme Rinse Conditioner
- Bumble and Bumble – Surf – Spray
- Bumble and Bumble – Ready to go
Beach Hair Look #Shampoo
The Bumble and Bumble – Surf – Foam Wash Shampoo is a perfect shampoo for creating a good foundation for a Beach Hair Look. Why? The Surf Shampoo gives your hair texture & body. Something that is very important in a Beach Hair Look. In addition to creating a great base for this look, the shampoo also moisturizes and softens your hair without weighing it down. The shampoo has a fresh, unobtrusive fragrance. For my length and thickness of hair, after I rinsed my hair thoroughly with water, I use about a euro coin-sized product to wash my hair. The shampoo foams nice and fast. Especially if you let an extra jet of water go over your hair after the shampoo has been massaged in. Normally I have to wash my hair twice for a nice, clean feeling. But with this shampoo 1x washing is actually enough. After rinsing out the shampoo I already see my hair fall in a kind of natural wave. So it’s crazy. Curious about this shampoo? Then click here.
Beach Look #Conditioner
After using the shampoo, I use Bumble and Bumble – Surf – Creme Rinse Conditioner. Before I apply the conditioner to my hair, I first squeeze the excess water out of my hair. If I didn’t do this, the water would cause the conditioner to drip right out of the hair without having been able to do its job. A shame!
After squeezing, I apply the conditioner in the lengths and ends of my hair. The conditioner smells a little sweeter than the shampoo, but it doesn’t have a very noticeable smell either. I actually like this myself. I let the conditioner soak into my hair for a while, while I comb through my hair with my fingers. This way the product comes up a bit more, but I make sure that I don’t hit my roots. My scalp and hair are very sensitive to getting greasy. Besides the fact that oily hair is not beautiful and doesn’t look fresh, it also aggravates your hair. And with heavy hair, creating a nonchalant beach look won’t work as well.
After that I rinse my hair well, and I rinse the lengths with cold water. This ensures that your hair cuticles close nicely and that your hair will shine nicely. The conditioner is very nice. My hair feels soft, but not too soft. Some conditioners make your hair so soft that you only have a very thin tail. That’s anything but handy for a beach hair look. After using this conditioner you will keep your hair texture and body. Curious about this product? Click here.
Beach Hair Look #Volume powder
After blowing my hair dry with the hairdryer I always let my hair cool in the air. When your hair is really dry you can start applying the volume powder. You do this at the roots of your hair. This is really a must have for your hair if you ask me. The ‘Prêt-à-Powder’ powder from Bumble and Bumble is very fine to use. It feels fine and soft. Your hair doesn’t feel very stiff afterwards like some other volume powders, but it does strengthen well. This product ensures that your hair is not stuck so flat on your head. It provides some body and some more volume. Actually it works great without you noticing that there is a product in your hair. I apply this volume powder before I apply the surf spray. This is mainly so I don’t have to sit on my hair after applying the spray. Click here to read more about this product.
Beach Hair Look #Surf Spray
The last step for creating the perfect beach hair look, is the surf spray: Bumble and Bumble – Surf – Spray. The three steps provide the ultimate preparation for a beach hair look. But the surf spray completes the look. You spray the surf spray in your hair (on dry hair). You can see the waves after the first spray already in your hair. Really great. I squeeze the waves a bit more with my hand, for even more effect. I spray the product well in the length of my hair. For my length and thickness of hair I spray about 8 to 10 times the beach spray in my hair. This surf spray really creates a top beach hair look. Top stuff. Curious about this product?

The products of surf line really create a beach hair look without having to use a tool. The products may seem a bit pricey compared to other products. But it is true that you do this for a long time. You need so little product for a good result. So if you look at it that way, it might be even cheaper than products that may be lower priced, but with which you can do much less long.
