From the Red Carpet to the Beach: Ultra-Stylish Hair Trends for You

To look your best at the beach or pool, make sure to groom those locks into perfection. But where do you get fashionable inspiration for trendy style? From the realm of Hollywood of course! Check out these stylish hairstyles celebrities have been rocking on the red carpet lately and find out how to incorporate them into your beach or poolside look.

Parted in the middle

At the Golden Globes red carpet, there were a profusion of bobs and bombshell waves, but one noticeable trend was the middle parting. Eye-catching for its simplicity and stylish vibe, the parted-in-the-middle look was complimented by many celebrities with a tightly pulled back low bun, braid or chignon. Perhaps this style was inspired by fashion pundit Jenna Lyons’ well-known look, now sported by countless stars.

Here, Kate Hudson can be seen having opted to keep her hair away from her face to emphasize this absolutely stunning dress. Anna Kendrick’s whimsical dress already gave off a fairytale vibe, so her hair was worn in this simple, understated style. Check out Taylor Schilling’s slick hairdo, which she paired with strong brows and bold-colored lips to offset her bright red dress.


To achieve this ultra-stylish look for your beach or pool getaway, here’s a simple step-by-step 5-part process:

FIRST, apply some oil onto your damp hair, making sure that the product you’re using is only organic and has been used before on your hair, to achieve a silky smooth effect.

SECOND, blow your hair out using a round brush, then use a flat iron to tame those locks, spraying each section with some good hairspray. This will make your hair straight with a fresh, bouncy look.

THIRD, do the middle parting and brush your strands into a tight, low ponytail, as seen here on Anna Kendrick.


FOURTH, put some curl on your ponytail with a curling iron, brush it out after cooling off, then take a small part and braid it. Twist the rest into a bun, pin in place, and wrap the braid around the bun using a few bobby pins to secure it.

FIFTH AND LAST, finish the look with some hairspray for a completely polished look.
It’s easy and stylish as that, a must-try for the beach and pool to match your swimsuit.

The hottest hair color is in: ecaille

Gracing the fine ‘dos of Hollywood’s A-list crowd, the newest obsession of 2015 is the color ecaille, which is named after the French word for tortoiseshell, featuring golden highlights accentuated by darker, richer caramel tones. Ecaille has warm browns, honeys, and ambers, just like a tortoiseshell comb.

New mom Blake Lively was seen rocking this ‘do on the red carpet, joining the ranks of other stars who have chosen this color for their hair, including Khloe Kardashian and Jessica Alba.


To incorporate this look, let your colorist focus on a few bolder pieces that frame your face in the front, offset by softer, lighter painted pieces all around.

Other hair color trends making their way into chic style this year are platinum hair, deeper reds and richer tones of auburn. Platinum hair has recently been seen on such celebrities as Justin Bieber and January Jones. Reds and auburn have also been seen on Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson and the ever-alluring Christina Hendricks.

These stylish trends are truly great additions to your look at the beach or pool especially when paired with such fashionable swimsuits such as this vibrant La Blanca Serengeti Ots Sweetheart Mio.
