Summer HairstylesApril Leonard ~ July 19, 2017
Summer is easy and fun, so why shouldn’t your hair be too. With the hot weather and in some places, humid, the last thing you want is your hair sticking to your neck, making you feel 10 degrees hotter. And blow drying your hair when your house is already as hot as it is, forget it. So let your hair down, natural and all and try one of the following styles for your next trip to the beach, pool party or day trip with your girl gang.
The wet hair look is everything right now, and you can achieve this look minutes after stepping out of the shower. While hair is still wet, almost damp, apply a texturizing spray throughout and begin scrunching hair so it achieves that messy texture. Once you have achieved the texture you desire, apply a sleek, glossy or shiny gel, apply in the same scrunching motion as the texture spray. This will lock in the texture and keep hair looking shiny and wet all throughout the day. And just like that you're ready to head out the door!
Braids, any type of braids are perfect for summer. Dutch braids have been the latest craze, whether you prefer two, four or to braid your entire head. Do whatever you need to keep your hair out of your face. If you aren’t sure how to achieve the braid look you are going for, check out a tutorial and you’ll be a master in no time.
The messy bun or high pony. The ultimate go to look for those hot summer days. Start by applying some texturizing powder to your roots to achieve the “messy” look when you pull it up. Note that this look is always best achieved when you really are not trying to make it look perfect, because it’s not a polished pony. You can also add a knotted headband or satin sash for a little fun.
