Beach waves: summer's hottest celebrity hairstyle

Whether or not you live anywhere near the beach, you'll be seeing more and more tousled surfer-girl waves this season, it's a fact. Easy to create and maintain, beach hair is also a favorite style for many celebrities. Here are four examples of stars who love to work the beach vibe on the red carpet!

Emmy Rossum

Our most recently-spotted celebrity working some beach waves, Emmy Rossum also shows that brunettes can look just as good as blondes! She's swept her hair over to one side, and paired it with aquamarine eyeliner and earrings, as well as a hot pink dress - pretty daring, but it works!

Blake Lively

Blake is probably the queen of the beach wave! It's her signature hairstyle, and sure-enough, on the red carpet at Cannes this year the tousled blonde style made an appearance. The look works so well thanks to Blake's use of highlights and lowlights, which give texture and movement to the hair.

Kaley Cuoco

Since this photo was taken a few months ago, Kaley has cut off her long blonde locks, and is currently working a pixie crop, but we still remember the days of her surfer-style long blonde hair. To get a really piecey effect like Kaley, curl the hair (from the ear down) in small 1cm sections.

Doutzen Kroes

Taken from even further back in time, this fourth photo shows another veteran of the beach wave - the gorgeous Doutzen Kroes. She shows that the look works just as well with a more ashen shade of blonde and bigger waves (curl larger sections for larger waves).

Are you tempted to try the beach wave look this summer?
