Are you seeking some fun summer hairstyles to try? Read on to
find out our picks for the hottest summer hairstyles:
If you're going to a formal party, then you may want a
sophisticated updo. Try a classy French twist for a timeless look.
Simply pull your hair into a ponytail, twist, and tuck the ends
under the twist, securing with bobby pins that are the same color
as your hair. Pull a few wispy tendrils out to frame your face,
mist lightly with hairspray, and you're set!
Maybe you want to wear your hair up, but don't require anything
formal. In this case, simply pile your hair loosely on top your
head and secure with bobby pins. Or, pull hair into a ponytail,
twist, but instead of tucking ends, leave them out for an undone
Ponytails are always a good choice, and especially so in the
hotter months! Try a classic ponytail if you're on the run, or go
for a more sophisticated version. Pull your hair into a high
ponytail and secure with a neutral colored elastic band. Then,
pull a thick strand of hair out of the elastic holder and wrap it
around so that the hair obscures the elastic. Secure with a small
bobby pin on the underside of the ponytail.
Long and Loose
Romantic waves are back in fashion. If you've got long hair, then
you're in luck! Set your hair on medium-sized hot rollers for the
longest lasting curl. Before rolling hair, however, protect
against heat damage with a heat protectant spray. When rollers are
dry, unroll then gently separate curls with fingers. For an even
more natural look, use both medium and small curlers for different
Straight and Sleek
If you just don't care for curls, go straight! Use a straightening
serum after shampooing, then blow dry straight with high heat and
a large, round brush. After hair is dry, use a flat iron for the
sleekest strands possible. Mist lightly with a shine spray that
contains sunscreen for maximum gloss and protection.
Short and Sweet
If your hair is short or you're thinking about cutting it, there
are two great styles to consider. The first is the bob. A
versatile cut, the bob works for both straight and wavy hair, but
looks best on straight hair that's slightly above shoulder length.
If you've got small, delicate features, you can't go wrong with a
razored pixie cut.
To keep your hair in great shape this summer, make sure to indulge
in a weekly deep conditioning. This will help repair the damage
from sun, surf, and styling. If you find yourself having a bad
hair day this summer, don't despair. Just throw on a cute cap or
even a bandana for sporty summer style!
