When it comes to faking beachy hair, there is no shortage of products that can help you achieve it. But as with anything else, there's nothing quite like the real thing. Apparently, that sentiment has been true for years -- 102 years, to be exact.

These gorgeous photos of Christina O'Gorman, taken in 1913 by her father Mervyn O'Gorman at a beach in Dorset, England, offer not only a glimpse to the past, but also prove that the best beachy waves are only attainable by actually going to the beach.

The images are notably in color, which according to Mashable is a result of O'Gorman using Autochrome, "one of the first color photo technologies, which used glass plates coated in potato starches to filter pictures with dye."

Take a look at the images below, and excuse us while we book a beach vacation ASAP.
