Met The Look: Surfer Girl

  • The whole surfer look is one of carefree casualness. Nothing's too done.
    Here are great and easy steps that will turn you from you into the epitome of sun kissed surfer chick!

  • 1. Hair

    A good way to achieve surfer hair is to mix one part of sea salt with three parts of water, and spritz on your hair. It will give you that care-free "just surfed" look and is a good, natural alternative to dye if you can't actually go surfing all the time.
    If your hair is naturally wavy or curly, embrace it - surfer hair is typically tousled. If it's naturally straight, after towel drying hair french plait it and leave it overnight and it will be wavy by morning.
    It you don't have time why not use a loose play or side pony instead!

  • 2. Get a tan.

    It's essential for that laid-back, carefree look and looks flattering on almost everyone as it is an automatic slimmer and makes you look healthier and radiant. Real surfers have real beach tans, but of course if you live in a climate where you need to wear a wet suit, it's very easy to get that unflattering 'wet suit tan' Additionally you might live in a cooler climate not near the beach, or it might be winter, or you may sunburn instead of tan.
    The solution is sunless tanning, either through a sunbed (not recommended), or bottled tan. (Spray on is the best)

  • 3. Sort out your wardrobe.

    Your clothes may include surf brands like Billabong and Roxy, but you shouldn't wear only surfing brands. Real surfers don't always live in beach brands, it can be too expensive and they're not always practical. The usual outfit for a surfer girl is board-shorts and a bikini, but for school or during cool weather, surf-inspired tops and jeans are a good look. Also, many surfer girls are bohemian in style and opt for the 'boho chic' look (see Get The Look: Boho Chick)

  • 4. Bling

    Wear jewellery such as bracelets made of hemp, rope, string and seashells, and necklaces made of the same materials or rock pendants. You'll want to wear these 5 to 10 bracelets at a time so that they stack up your wrist. Bonus points if you get bracelets that can be worn in the water.
    Just note, you will get tan lines from them.

  • 5. Nails

    Paint your toenails a bright color so your feet look nice - remember they'll be bare on the beach. Most surfers paint their nails. Good colors are bright colors! Teal, aqua, orange, red, hot pink, and sunshine yellow. But remember, sand and nail varnish don't mix. It gets scraped off really quickly.

  • Now you're ready to hit the waves! Surfs up ducklings. Go and catch a wave.
