Summer Hairstyling 101: Stay Cool, Cute and Chic with Updos, Braids and Waves

Need change – a new go-to-summer style, feeling tempted to shave your head out of frustration? It has been a long winter, but summer is finally here. The days are longer; the fashion is fresh, and makeup colours are dazzling. But as the weather changes, so do hairstyling trends. While it may be super easy choosing all those luscious hair products that help you maintain flawless summer hair, it’s not so easy choosing the right style. If you haven’t found your summer look, stay cool, cute, and chic with these two easy summer hairstyling looks.

Hot Days Demand Sleek Updos

Air on your neck on a scorching day brings instant satisfaction. Unless you want oily, shapeless hair that sticks to your neck, and forehead – even after two hours of styling in a salon, wear your hair in a sleek, high ponytail, or space bun, one-sided braid rope, Bantu knot, box braid, or keep it real and go Afro natural. Whether short, pixie, ponytails or braids, these hairstyling trends are low commitment and will leave you feeling fresh all day long. Bonus Tip: Avoid bangs over summer – unless you want an acne breakout on your forehead, and keep flyaways at bay with a silky, non-greasy hairstyling product.

Go Brazilian with Beach Waves

While statement headbands and hair accessories are definitely in – especially for those with bangs, if you’re sporting long voluminous locks, then refresh your look this summer with Brazilian beach waves. Sadly, in summer, even the most expensive curling irons will not keep hair straight all day. Instead of fighting the heat, go effortless, fun, and surfer-chic by creating soft waves with a curling iron. Then mist your locks with seawater and scrunch up to get those luscious beachy waves.

Your hair is an expression of your personality, style, mood, age, and attitude. Whether you’re going through change, your hair is limp and lacks volume, or your natural curls have declared war on each other, your hair is your crown so wear it proudly this summer.
