Beach Waves

Salma Hayek’s beach hair is giving us Shakira vibes: get the look!

Get inspired by the A-lister to take your hair on vacation

 Salma Hayek  flaunted the ultimate “beach hair” (no, she doesn’t care) and it got us thinking. The 53-year-old actress shared a new selfie on Saturday, August 22, that reminded us of another Latina powerhouse. Her auburn tresses blowing in the wind, Salma’s do was reminiscent of  Shakira ’s famously voluminous hair. The star repped tinted aviators in the beach day snap, simply captioning it: “#beechhair #melenademar.” Of course, not everyone has been able to go to the beach during this social-distancing summer, but have no fear! We’ve compiled how you can get beachy waves like Salma from the safety of your own home.

First, take your hair type into consideration. For instance, if you have wavy hair already, you don’t need to add as much product in. Keeping that in mind, see below for the top five products that’ll bring you the beach in a bottle for under $25:


1. Playa Endless Summer Spray ($24)

(Hair types: Straight, Curly, Wavy)

Infused with sea salt sourced in Southern California, this lightweight spray is a favorite amongst many stars. We love it because, while many utilize alcohol (which dries out your hair), this gentle formula calls upon chia seed extract to enhance your natural texture. It also contains marine collagen and beta-carotene to nourish and protect your hair.
