Hi, I'm Caile Noble, celebrity hairstylist, and today I'm going to show you easy hairstyles for the beach. As you can see, Jaime's hair is very tousled and kind of has that beach hair going on, and we actually styled her hair to look like that, and how we did so was just taking vertical sections through the hair, picking up, you know, sections of the hair, like so, and just wrapping them around the iron and then letting them fall out. This is always a great way to go to the beach 'cause it doesn't look like you're trying to hard. It maybe looks like you just got there and the mist from your salt water has kind of allowed your hair to kind of crawl into this natural state. However, another great easy tip that I want to show you is...if you already have this foundation and maybe this is like a tip on the go, you can easily just pull it over and do like a side pony. All you're going to need is some clear rubber bands and some hairspray. And today, we're going to be using the Garnier Fructis Volumizing Anti-Humidity hairspray. Now, this is kind of a nice thing because it's going to kind of leave the hair still kind of tousled and natural looking, not like, "oh my gosh, I'm going somewhere, let me put it in a ponytail." It's literally like you're just going to pull the hair, over to one side, comb it over with your fingers and then pull this back so that you kind of have it into a pony. Now, I'm going to go in and just with my fingers, I'm going to separate it into three pieces. Trying to get a nice, even distribution of the hair. Now I'm going to go in and take this top piece first and start the braid so that it keeps it a little taught, then I'm going to go in and start braiding. Remember, it's okay if you're a little tight in the beginning 'cause as you go down, it's going to loosen up and literally, just go right into the braid. And as you're working through, just literally going down, when you get to the bottom, this is when you're going to need that clear elastic band, holding it off. What I like to do is before I go in with the elastic band, just go through and give the pony a little spray to keep it in place, and going with the band. I think a braid's a nice look at the beach because it just kind of obviously keeps the hair with a little bit of texture, but yet, still a little cleaner and off to the side, so, I think it's nice. And then, like I said before, because you have the braid there, because we didn't put a pony, like a band at the top, it kind of leaves it with a little bit of a nice, looser feel. And you can actually go in, if you want, and pull it apart a little bit, if you want to loosen it up. A great thing about this look is that it can work on any hair type as long as you just have the length necessary. Obviously, if you have shorter hair, you're probably not going to be able to get this look 'cause you do need a little bit of the length to achieve the braid. You can either tuck this behind the ear to kind of keep it unison, or you can kind of leave it out so you have a little softness, and I kind of like it down, so we'll do that. And there ya go, a few hairstyles that you can wear for the beach. I'm Caile Noble, thank you for watching.
