Surfer Hair for Men: Say Hello to Your New Summer Style Surfer Hair for Men: Say Hello to Your New Summer Style Surfer Hair for Men: Say Hello to Your New Summer Style

It’s safe to say that when it comes to hairstyles for men, the simpler, the better. Luckily, the latest hairstyle trend is just about as low-maintenance as it gets—and it’s perfect for summer. We’re talking about surfer hair. What is the surfer look, and how can you get it for yourself? Below, we’re filling you in on this carefree hairstyle for men, including a step-by-step tutorial on how to get the look, complete with product recs!

WHAT IS SURFER HAIR?

The surfer hairstyle is to men what beach waves are the women—a messy hairstyle that resembles what the ocean waves and saltwater air of a good beach day will do to your strands. Think textured, wavy hair, and you’ll get the idea. The surfer look is all about medium and long hair, so if your mane is on the shorter end, this may not be the trend for you. But, if you’re rocking a bit of length, you’ll want to give this one a try for yourself ASAP.

The best part? As we mentioned, surfer hair is seriously low-maintenance. Cut-wise, you don’t have to constantly be headed to the salon to keep your mane trimmed to perfection. Like we said, long and messy is the vibe! Style-wise, the surfer hairstyle is the perfect “I woke up like this” look for men as it can be created in less than five minutes. Need we say more?

HOW TO GET A SURFER HAIRSTYLE

So, how do you get surfer hair? With the right tips and tricks, you’ll be ready to hit the waves—or at least look like you did—in no time. Follow the steps below and get ready to show off your beach-inspired ‘do!

STEP #1. WASH YOUR HAIR

For this hairstyle, how you prep your hair is important. Since the look is all about carefree, textured waves, use a shampoo and conditioner that will give your strands some extra volume and body to work with. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner.

STEP #2. PART YOUR HAIR

Part your hair to one side. Then, apply a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray, throughout your hair.

STEP #3. AMP UP THE VOLUME

As we said, this look works best with lots of volume! Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to damp hair and use a blow-dryer to bring volumized hair to life.

STEP #4. LIFT YOUR ROOTS

After blow-drying your hair, use a root spray to add some extra lift throughout your mane. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray where needed, focusing on your roots.

STEP #5. CREATE LOTS OF TEXTURE

Now it’s time to get messy! Take a dime-size amount of hair pomade, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Thickening Medium Hold Cream Paste, rub it between your palms, and run it through your hair. Scrunch and shape as you go to create defined texture. Add more product as needed, keeping in mind that less is more! This pomade will not only help create the appearance of a thicker mane but also leave your strands with a matte finish that’s perfect for the surfer look.

STEP #6. SEAL IN YOUR STYLE

Almost done! To finish the look, make sure your hairdo can withstand the highest wave (even if you aren’t literally headed to the beach). For staying power and one final volumizing boost, mist the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Volume over your mane.

HOW TO TAKE SURFER HAIR TO THE NEXT LEVEL

While rocking a surfer hairstyle certainly doesn’t require coloring your strands, adding highlights to your look can up its appearance of authenticity. Think about it: Dudes who spend all day surfing typically have natural highlights from the sun. While getting the same might not be in your future, you can use a highlighting kit to add a few lightened strands here and there.
