Tis the season for wavy, sun-kissed beach bunny hair (and a sold-out sea salt hairspray inventory at the drugstore.) For some women, sunny and salty waves aren’t a summer-only activity — they’re a lifestyle. They embody all the rarely-kept promises summer brings — carefree afternoons, perfect tan lines, an endless stream of Instagrammable soft serve that magically contains no calories — and carry it with them wherever they go. These celebs are the ultimate queens of beach hair. Can we borrow their stylists for the rest of forever?

1Mary-Kate Olsen

She may be known for her trendy-with-a-touch-of-bizarre boho look these days, but no matter how long she spends amid the New York fashion scene, Mary-Kate will always be a California girl at heart. I’m assuming her dedication to flaunt flowing beach waves over the years is a nod to her roots.

2Rachel Bilson

She played a quintessential California girl on “The O.C.,” but Rachel’s a Los Angeles-born beauty in her offscreen life as well. If her wavy locks are any indication, oceanside life certainly suits her!

3Kate Hudson

In addition to being magically age-resistant (seriously, what is up with that?), Kate has megawatt blonde hair that practically acts as its own light source. It’s rare to see her locks without their signature beachy curls. Can people pass down beach vibes in their genes? Something tells me her golden girl mom Goldie Hawn is to thank.

4Gisele Bündchen

If beach hair had a cousin, it would be Victoria’s Secret model hair. Gisele’s sunny, voluminous waves are the stuff of beachy dreams — as if winning at life in every other aspect of her appearance weren’t enough already.

I will never stop stubbornly clinging to “Bring It On” as the first thing I think of when I see Gabrielle, but glittering beach goddess comes in as a close second.

What’s that we said about model hair? Beachy perfection. Here’s another beautiful mane in action rocked by the fabulous Chrissy Teigen. Just look at those sun-kissed highlights!

7Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson doesn’t get enough credit for consistency. While she flounced between multiple career ventures and marriages, her trademark sunny locks remained mostly the same, making her beach-ready at a moment’s notice.

It goes without saying that Rihanna dominates any and every hairstyle she rocks. Her dabble in beach waves was no exception — in one swift style change, she schooled all the other saltwater-soaked manes out there. Keep showing them who’s boss, RiRi.

As someone who spent years making her living as a walking and talking billboard for California life, Lauren has the beachy look down to a science.

Like it or not, Blake’s sunny locks reign supreme — and they’re probably insured for more money than we’ll ever see in our lives.
