Your hair says a lot about you. The summer months have begun and they can bring on quite a change in hair texture. Here are some quick and easy summer solutions to nurse and style your fabulous hair.
A strong foundation is the most important element in healthy, sexy hair. Keep your ends clean with regular trims. I recommend 5-7 weeks for shorter styles and 8-10 weeks for longer lengths. Protect your hair and scalp by using products like:
Moisture is a must these days. Summer sun can make hair thirsty. Rinse off that sun and salt while letting your locks quench thirst with moisturizing, color safe shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks like these:
- Sebastian Drench Shampoo and Conditioner
When it comes to styling your hair, try to keep those locks looking natural. Get out your curl creams, serums, and sea salt sprays ‘cause in the summer’s heat wavy and free is the way to be! Follow these tips to get flirty curls or waves, beautiful braids, and accessorized tresses.
For defined curls, twist locks of any length around two fingers to achieve a curl or around three fingers to achieve a wave. Preserve a neat look by blow-drying the front fringe area back while wrapping it around a round brush.
If using a blow dryer, keep it on low to prevent frizz. Twist your hair along the front hairline or down from the part and secure it with a bobby pin to give it a flirty vibe. Bobby pins can be your best friend – very useful for tucking away shorter hair.
Braids are big! Braiding all the hair to one side is sleek and sexy, while braiding a specific area of the hair can be fun too. Secure the ends of all braids using small elastics or bobby pins.
Accessorize your summer! Place a slim circular headband right over your style for a flowing hip look. Pair a messy ponytail or chignon that has height in the crown and a pair of great earrings. Stock up on head scarves. Fold the scarf at opposite corners, then into a headband shape. Wrap the scarf around your head and tie it having the bow or knot be placed where it best suits you. Let’s not forget that a straight or sweeping fringe is the perfect touch for those big and fabulous sunglasses we all have.
