By Bikini Island 22 March 2015

Bikini Island Summer Beach Hair dos

When heading to the beach you do not have to spend hours trying to style your hair for a glamorous look! Beach hairstyles can be achieved with out much attention and will be chic yet effortlessly natural.

Bikini Island Top Knot

One of our fav beach hair dos is the top knot! Worn by some of our fav beach babes like Miranda Kerr, the topknot is easy to achieve. Comb your hair with your fingers and pull roughly up into a high knot/bun to achieve this easy look!

Bikini Island Loose curls/waves

Loose curls and waves are also another fav look for the beach. For a super quick and effective way to achieve them lightly dampen your hair and tie up a few thick braids and leave them overnight. Undo the braids and comb through with your fingers leaving a gorgeous natural rustled beach hair do!

Bikini Island french braid

Another beautiful summer beach hair do is the French braid! Easy to manage and easy to wear in the salt water, the French braid is our go to beach look!

Bikini Island Loves: High Neck Swimsuits

By Bikini Island 1 March 2015

Bikini Island Baku Swimwear Chevron Pop

Summer 14/15 saw the introduction of high neck swimsuits and they aren’t going anywhere for 2015/16!

High neck swimsuits are flattering on many women young and old and on lots of different sizes and shapes!

High neck tops are perfect for those people who are wanting to be active at the beach and are right on the sports luxe trend!

High neck swimsuits are also great for those wanting to cover up their chest area from the sun!

We recommend Baku Swimwear’s high neck crop from Valencia and their high neck one piece from the geo print Chevron Pop

Bikini Island Summer Report

By Bikini Island 29 January 2015

Bikini ISland Summer Bucket List

Top 5 things to add to your summer bucket list:

1.Throw (or go to someone’s) pool party

Not everyone is lucky enough to own a pool but if you do or if you know someone who does get your friends around, some blow up pool toys and throw a pool party!

2.Visit a local waterfall

This summer do some research and find out where the nearest waterfall is located. Visiting a local waterfall can be a fun day trip and will involve exploring the local area with a nice cool off swim at the end not to mention beautiful views!

3.Hire out a boat for the day (or borrow one)

Getting out on the open water is one of the best things about summer! Hiring a boat means you can find secret beaches, stop off for picnics and even participate in water sports.

4.Go on a road trip

Whether it’s a month in a kombi, two weeks up north or down south or even a quick weekend getaway, plan your self a road trip this summer. There is nothing more Australian than packing up shop and jetting off to a summer holiday town and camping (or for some glamping!)

5.Find a perfect fitting swimsuit!

In all 4 of the above activities it is essential to have an amazing swimsuit. You will live in your cossie over summer and finding the right one can be a difficult yet a must do task!

Bikini Island has a huge collection both in stores and online for you to chose from :)

By Bikini Island 11 January 2015

It has been a hot summer and with the hundreds that flock to the beach you sometimes wish for some peace and quiet! (We feel the same)

So here at Bikini Island HQ we have come up with our top 3 favorite secret beaches of Sydney (just don't tell everyone about them!):

Shelly Beach:

Shelly Beach: Bikini Island Beaches

Only a hop away from Manly's main beach, Shelly Beach is a much quieter, more secluded beach. Still close to Manly's corso, Shelly beach is a fantastic snorkelling spot and is great for families!

Lady Bay Beach:

Lady Bay: Bikini Island Beaches

Lady Bay beach is a quiet and breath taking spot! Although it may be small, situated between South Head and Camp Cove, Lady Bay is a designated nude beach for those who believe bathers are optional. Also a fantastic picnic area, the quaint little beach is a perfect city escape retreat!

Morning Bay, Pittwater:

Morning Bay: Bikini Island Beaches

Walking through a bush track to this little gem one would never expect to find this beach! An untouched natural beauty, the beach which is located in Kuringai Chase National Park, also boasts a waterfall and a swimming hole!
