Whether you're looking for an excuse to play with fun hair accessories — sporty headbands, gold barrettes, straw hats, and scrunchies — or an easy protective style, braids, or a low bun, you'll find 13 beach-perfect looks to inspire you, ahead. Pick your favourite, grab a pin-striped towel, and fully enjoy the PTO you've been waiting six long months for.
