How to Get a Hawaii-Inspired Hairstyle How to Get a Hawaii-Inspired Hairstyle How to Get a Hawaii-Inspired Hairstyle

Whether you’re going on vacation or simply want to embrace your tropical side, Hawaiian hair styles are one of the latest hairstyle trends that you have to try. Let’s be honest—we all could all use a little Hawaiian style in our lives, and if a plane ticket just isn’t in the cards at the moment, rocking an island ‘do is the next best option! From long hairstyles to braids to updos and buns, we’ve got the scoop on how to create different Hawaiian hairstyles.


For this Hawaiian hairstyle, it’s all about creating some waves. The tropics call for a carefree, laidback vibe and so does this hairstyle.

Step 1: Wash your hair

The first step to get this hairstyle is to prep your hair using the right hair care products. Since the ultimate goal is to have loose, hassle-free waves, use a volume shampoo and conditioner to give your locks the extra body and bounce you need for this look. Used together, the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner will give your hair lasting volume and luminous shine.

Step 2: Apply a hair texturizer

Use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to enhance your hair’s natural shape and texture. Apply the texturizing wave spray to towel-dried hair, scrunch, and let it dry for loose, soft waves.

Editor’s tip: If your hair is naturally straight, put your hair into a braid while waiting for it to dry to create more defined waves.

Step 3: Accessorize

To finish this look, place a flower hair accessory in your hair to create a Hawaiian vibe. Have fun with this step! Whether you choose to put a flower clip on the side of your head above your ear or rock a flower headband, you’ll be a radiant island beauty.


If you’d rather try a more intricate style, this braided Hawaiian hairstyle is for you.

Step 1: Braid your hair

For this look, start by French braiding your hair. If you’re a little rusty on your braid skills, read our article, Braiding Basics: How to French Braid Your Hair.

Step 2: Loosen it up

Once your hair is braided, you want to add some character to your braid. Gently tug at the braid to loosen it. Then, gently pull strands loose from the front of your face so you have a few pieces of hair framing your face.

Step 3: Spray it into place

Apply a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray, to add shine and ensure your style stays in place.

Step 4: Grab your accessories

Just as with our previous Hawaiian hairstyle, a flower hair accessory truly pulls this look together. Use your hair accessory of choice and place it wherever you see fit. We love putting small flower clips throughout the braid to make it appear as though you have flowers laced into your locks. 


What’s better than a long, braided Hawaiian hairstyle? A long, braided updo Hawaiian hairstyle!

Step 1: Add some volume

Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to your roots for an instant lift and volume.

Step 2: Create your updo

For this Hawaiian-inspired updo, put your hair into a braided updo. Braids are the perfect detail to add to your hairstyle. This step is open to your creativity, as well as your preferred updo.

Step 3: Add a flower

Sticking with the flower trend, accent your hairstyle by adding a flower hair accessory to complete the look.
