An Easy Way To Make Beach Hair Look Chic

As much as we love a good, beachy 'do, sometimes you need your look to be a little more sophisticated. Maybe you're heading to a sunset cocktail shindig, or perhaps you just prefer a style that's a bit more polished — either way, you want to be able to take those tousled strands and turn them into something chic without a ton of effort.

Well, we've got the tutorial for you, thanks to Vidal Sassoon Pro Series ambassador Ben Skervin. In this video, he teaches our executive editor Neha how to work with all that texture to create a cool-yet-chic bun that looks done enough for any fancy affair. Love this look but not currently sporting any beach hair of your own? Skervin says to add some Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse to wet hair and let it air-dry — or give it a quick blowdry — and you'll have the texture you need.
Finish off your 'do with some hairspray and you're good to go wherever the rest of your day (and night) might take you. Watch the video to get the full play-by-play for creating this stunning summer style.
Vidal Sassoon Pro Series ColorFinity Hairspray, $4.49, available at Drugstore.com.
