Surfer Hair became popular in the late 60’s and had a long life that lasted throughout the 80’s. A shaggy, tussled hairdo bleached blond by long exposure by the sun make this hairstyle very popular in warm, beachy areas such as California and Hawaii. But guys across the country long to have the surfer hair cut. A trend that comes and goes, but never stays away for too long, surfer hair is summer.
The hair is kept long and in layers and the salt sea water, plus sand and tanning oil, make the hair a wind swept lovely mess. Nowadays, those seeking the surfer look can get it in any hair salon or right in front of their own mirror. Hair gels, hair wax and pomades create the “surfer look” in addition to some products that are specifically named for beach hair. Products such as those by Bumble and Bumble Beach Hair that actually has salt water in it, create just the perfect look.
The surfer hair cut has changed throughout the years. What was once made up of very long hair to the shoulder has not become shorter hair but with long layers. Bangs that can be put behind the ears but with the back barely hitting the shoulders. Parted to the side versus down the middle, creates this updated surfer look.
