Beachy waves and loose buns are currently the most sought after summertime hairstyle and lots of celebs like the Olsens, Vanessa Hudgens, and Miley Cyrus know how to rock the perfect messy ‘do. While these starlets make it look totally effortless we know getting that perfectly imperfect summertime style can sometimes be harder than it looks. So don’t worry, you’re not alone if you’ve tried to replicate that sloppy side bun or messy wave and come out looking like you just woke up from a month long nap. Turns out, sometimes looking carefree-chic takes a whole lot of effort too! Of course, EG has got all the tips and tricks to help you create the perfect laidback summertime hairstyle. Check out the products and tips we’ve shared below! For a mermaid wave look, a la Vanessa Hudgens, nothing works better than the ocean. But, when you can’t take a quick trip to the nearest coastline before getting ready, sea-salt sprays are your next best option. This one gets amazing reviews!

Just spray it in damp hair, crunch it up, and watch as your beach babe hair forms right before your eyes! If you want a beach wave look that isn’t so casual, then we suggest using a styling wand, like the one below, for a Mary-Kate Olsen inspired style.

Styling wands don’t have the clamp that curling irons do, so instead you just wrap and hold the hair around the wand yourself creating gorgous loose curls. Run your fingers through your curls or brush them with a mixed bristle brush for a natural looking wave. The bigger the barrel, the looser the wave like MK’s. If you’re trying to perfect the messy bun like miss Miley, we’ve got the secret technique for you. In the back of your head create three loose, low buns- the kind that are created right before you’re about to pull your hair through into a ponytail. Scrunch all of these buns together in the middle and stick any type of clips or pins you like in the messy chignon for whatever desired effect youlike and ta-da!

We love this hair accessory for an added pop of edge. Happy styling everyone!

Mariah Carey made her recording debut in 1990 under Columbia records. The album went multi-platinum, and she went on to make some of the greatest pop R&B hits. In 2001 she made a film entitled Glitter, which did not do well at the box office. After that, this singer was off the map until her 2005 release of The Emancipation of Mimi. She achieved great success with this comeback album, with the hit single “We Belong Together” named as “Song of the Decade” by Billboard. Since then, Mariah stepped back into public eye. As we all know, she went on to marry Nick Cannon and became the mother of twins. Not only that, but Mariah will be helping new singers achieve their dreams as the newest judge on American Idol!

Before breaking into show-biz, Jennifer Lopez’s dream was to become a dancer. In 1996, her first big break came when she played the lead in the movie Selena. Since then, she’s been the female lead in hit movies such as The Wedding Planner and released seven studio albums. After her 2007 album Brave, she took a break—but this diva couldn’t stay off the map for too long!

The New Kids on the Block took the ’80s teenybopper scene by force—Backstreet Boys did the same in the ’90s. In April 1986, New Kids on the Block released their self-titled album, but the album did not have much success. After the release of their second album Hangin’ Tough, the New Kids shot to stardom. Almost a decade later, the Backstreet Boys rose to fame. In 1997, the hit single “Quit Playing Games With my Heart” was released. Their album Backstreet’s Back won a spot as number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. After New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys experienced whirlwind success in the ’80s and ’90s, they started to disappear from the mainstream music scene. But in 2011, these two pop sensations joined forces and released a compilation album of their biggest hits titled NKOTBSB, and embarked on their tour in May 2011.
