What Is Surfer Hair?
Surfer hair is a hairstyle that is usually worn by surfers. It is characterized by its long, shaggy, and sun-bleached appearance.
Surfer hairstyles became popular in the 1950s and 1960s, when surf culture was at its peak. It has since made a comeback in recent years, thanks to the popularity of beach and surf-inspired fashion trends.
For those of us who weren’t born with perfectly tousled California waves, getting that perfect surfer hair look can seem like a bit of a challenge. But have no fear – with the right products and a little bit of know-how, you can get the surfer hair of your dreams.
How To Get Surfer Hair?
The style is achieved by using salt water and sun to naturally lighten hair, to create waves and texture.
Start with clean, dry hair. If your hair is dirty or oily, it will be more difficult to style. Use a clarifying shampoo to remove any buildup from hair products. Create texture by using a sea salt spray. Spray liberally onto damp hair, scrunching as you go. Let your hair air dry, we highly recommend it, but you can also use a diffuser if you are in a hurry. Once your hair is dry, apply a small amount of hair wax or pomade to your fingers and work through your hair. This will help to hold the waves in place. Use a curling iron or hot rollers to create additional waves, if desired. Finish with a light mist of hairspray to keep your style in place.
How To Style Surfer Hair?
Surfer hair is one of the most popular and iconic hairstyles of all time. One of the most important things to remember when styling surfer hair is to use a good salt spray. Salt spray will add texture and volume to your hair, and it will also help to hold your style in place. You can find salt spray at most beauty supply stores, or you can make your own by mixing 1 teaspoon of salt with 1 cup of water. Once you have your salt spray, you will need to decide what kind of look you are going for. If you want to achieve a natural, beachy look, you will need to let your hair air dry.
If you are looking for a more polished look, you can blow dry your hair with a diffuser attachment. Once your hair is dry, you can start to style it. If you are going for a natural look, you can simply run your fingers through your hair to add some waves. If you want a cleaner look, you can use a curling iron or flat iron to add some curl or wave to your hair. Once you have achieved the desired look, you will need to finish off your style with a good hairspray. Hairspray will help to hold your style in place, and it will also add some shine.
How To Care For Your Surfer Hair Look?
Don’t over-wash your hair. Washing your hair every day will strip it of its natural oils and make it dry and brittle. If you must wash it every day, use a mild natural shampoo and conditioner, and be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly.
Let your hair air-dry whenever possible. The sun and salt water can be drying to your hair, so it’s best to let it air-dry whenever possible. If you must use a blow dryer, use the lowest setting and hold it at least 6 inches away from your hair.
Use a leave-in conditioner. Leave-in conditioner will help to hydrate your hair and protect it from the sun and salt water. Apply it to damp hair and comb it through from roots to ends.
Protect your hair from the sun. The sun can be damaging to your hair, so be sure to wear a hat or scarf when you’re going to be out in it for extended periods of time. There are also some oils made specifically to protect hair from the sun, that you can find in stores.
Don’t use hot tools. Hot tools, such as curling irons and flat irons, can damage your hair. If you must use them, be sure to use a heat-protectant spray and use the lowest setting possible.
Trim your hair regularly. Getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks will help to prevent split ends and keep your hair looking healthy. Take a look at the ideas we’ve gathered to get inspired!
