Ways to Get Sun-Kissed Surfer Beach Hair
Step 1: Decide The Color
- You need to bleach your hair first to get a bright ashy blonde. Use a 40 volume developer and apply to dry hair for about 30 minutes depending on how light or dark your hair is naturally. Use gloves while bleaching because the chemicals can burn your hands if you touch them directly.
- Once the bleaching is complete, you need to tone your hair to remove some of the yellow undertones that will still be present. There are two ways to do it: use a blue toner on already light blonde, bleached hair or mix up a bowl of half conditioner and half bleach and apply only to the parts of your hair that need it.
- You don’t want to use a light ashy blonde color on the underside of your hair because some warmth will still show through, so go with an ashy brown instead. Mix half conditioner and half bleach and apply to the underside only before rinsing completely.
- With a spray bottle filled with a mixture of 1 part conditioner and 2 parts water, spray about a 7″ section of hair closest to the scalp and pull it through your fingers before wrapping it around the barrel. Once the hair is wrapped tightly around about 5 times, release your hands and let go. Then repeat this process on the same strand up to your ends. Do this on different sections of hair, applying more or less tension to create waves with varying textures.
- Let your hair dry completely, so it doesn’t frizz out when you apply the product. Then mix the color that most closely resembles your desired result and spray it all over while scrunching your hair to give it texture. If it’s lighter than you’d like, reapply until you’re satisfied with the color.
- With a curling iron, curl each section of hair small enough so that the waves don’t fall flat too quickly- you want them to last through at least part of the day.
Step 2: Style Your Hair
- Rub your favorite styling product into wet hair, then put it up in a quick bun or clip while it’s still soaking wet to get the excess water out. This will minimize frizz and make your beach waves hold better.
- When you take your hair down, scrunch out the excess water with a towel without rubbing it because that will disturb your waves. Then rub in another product for texture.
- If you want to go surfing with your hair like this, put on a rash guard or wetsuit and then let your hair air dry before braiding it into pigtails–they stay out of your face better than if you just let it hang loose.
- After beach time, take your braid out and shake out the rest of your waves to separate them more. Then spray on some more texture product for hold.
- To keep the curls from straightening by nightfall, pull sections of hair tightly around your finger and pin them into place.
After a day at the beach, or a beach bonfire at night, take your braid out and shake out the rest of your waves to separate them more. Then spray on some more texture product for hold.

Hi, I’m Ryan Nelson! I live in the Hamptons, out on Long Island, near Ponquogue Beach. The beach is a place where I can find peace and serenity. It’s a place where I can sit and clear my head. The waves crashing on the shore somehow helps me to relax, while also reminding me that I am far from the stressors of daily life.
