Keeping It Simple For Summer

2016.05.07 helens

There’s so much to do – and so much fun to be had – during summer that the last thing you want to think about is what to do with your hair. Between days at the pool and sultry nights under the stars, you have better things on your mind. So here are some simple summer style ideas to get you out and about, and looking your best, in no time flat.

It all starts with a great cut. Whether it’s a trim or a new do, start your summer off right. This year, it’s all about the bob – but this isn’t your grandmother’s cut. Instead, it’s a strong shape that lets you mix it up with very little effort. Whether you opt for bangs or not, don’t be tempted to curl the ends inward toward your jaw. Instead, let your hair do what it wants and use some blingy accessories to keep it in check if need be. Ask your stylist about adding some texture to your bob for additional volume and shape.

Not ready to go to a bob, or are you in the process of growing one out? Think about a long shag cut. It’s got plenty of built-in texture that you can play up with some beach spray for just the right amount of dishevelment, or you can dial it back with some classic hair accessories when you want a more refined look.

Got curls? Summer is the time to set them free. Let them dry au naturel with just some curl primer. Once they’re completely dry, add a bit of anti-frizz balm. Not only will you look great, your hair will thank you for breaking the heat treating cycle.
