Malia Manuel's Top 3 Summer Hairstyles

Being from Hawaii, Malia Manuel is kind of #SummerGoals. And being a pro surfer, she knows about life in the fast lane. So we wanted to know about her three go-to summer hairstyles.

Paul Mitchell: What’s your fave summer date night look?

Malia Manuel: I always go for loose curls. It’s the best look for a summer date night in my opinion. Use a straightening iron to curl the bottom half of your hair. Add a little bit of MarulaOil Rare Oil Treatment at the end to make sure those highlights shine!

PM: Loose curls, always a good choice. So what’s your fave lazy day/ away on vacay look?

MM: A low inside-out ponytail is perfect  for my lazy days. They’re easy to do, but still chic in case you need to go out and run errands! Add a little Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Shine Spray™ to top your look off.


PM: And now the question all of the weekend warriors want to know: what’s your go-to style on surf competition days?

MM: My go-to surf and workout styles are secure so I don’t have to worry about anything while competing or working out. Braids, buns, or both! I usually make two side braids that I tuck into a low bun. This doesn’t pull your hair and keeps you chic in the gym or water without too much effort. After workouts or surfing, I love using Tea Tree products so I feel refreshed!


Thanks, Malia, for sharing these styles with us!
