Embrace Your Summer Hair

Between all the graduations, pool parties, and entire afternoons enjoying barbecues, there is no time for flat ironing your hair, and making room for hour-long hair regimens which ultimately end up in a sweaty mess. We picked some simple, fun and textured looks you can get away with this summer.

Half-Up Top Knot

This is one of my favorite go-to looks where I can still wear my hair down, but keep it out of my face. It’s the perfect combination of two classic looks- the half-up-half-down and the top knot to create an effortless look. All you need is:

  • Hair tie
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair Comb
  • Dry shampoo (optional)
  • Hairspray

Sleek Low Ponytail

Going to a more formal summer event? A sleek low ponytail will do the trick. You can opt for a side part or middle part. The best part about this hairstyle is that you can style your fresh air dried hair or second-day hair- which one is it? No one can tell, it’s a blend of elegance and functionality. Not to mention, it only takes five minutes! All you need is:

  • Hair tie
  • Bobby pins (to hide the hair tie)
  • Hair Comb
  • Gel
  • Hairspray

Braids

They’re trending year-round, but they are especially stylish during the summer months. You can create a loose fishtail braid, Dutch braid, waterfall braid…. the possibilities are endless. They are low maintenance and easy to handle. You will need:

  • Elastic bands
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair Comb
  • Hairspray

Natural Curls

This summer it’s all about the natural, freshly washed and completely un-manipulated look. Have a couple of curls out of place? Use your finger to twist the curls and flip your hair while drying, this will encourage volume in your hair.

  • Styling cream
  • Wide tooth comb
