MUST READ: What to do when Weather Ruins Your Hair?
The messy bun. Buns and topknots continue to be all the rage, so add this hairstyle to your repertoire. All you need to do is pull your hair into a loose ponytail. You can determine how high or low you want the bun. Once the hair is secured, spray some texturizing spray and tease your ponytail. This will give it texture and volume. After teasing your hair, use a light hand and shape it into a bun and secure your hair with hair pins and bobby pins. The messier it looks the more laid back and effortless it will look.
Beachy mermaid hair. Love the way your hair looks after spending a day in the ocean but don’t have the time or luxury to spend every day at the beach? Then here is a hairstyle for you! This is an easy style that looks sexy but effortless at the same time. After cleansing your hair, liberally spray damp hair with a texturizing sea salt spray from root to tip. Scrunch the hair to mold the waves or simply braid in small sections. You can let it air dry or use a diffuser to speed up the process. Undo the braids and finger comb the waves for the finished look.
The braided updo. This is a great hairstyle for gals with medium to long hair. It looks sophisticated but takes no time to create. All you need to do is apply your favorite styling product from mid-length to the ends, separate your hair into two sections (think pigtails), and braid. Once you’ve finished braiding your hair place them on the top of your head, have the braids cross each other and pin into place. Your hair will be off your neck and you’ll have a cool, bohemian looking updo to rock.
The sleek high ponytail. Going out for a night on the town in the warm summer evening? Try this classic look! Apply a styling crème from root to tip. Brush hair back and make sure it’s smooth before securing it tightly into a ponytail. To ensure even more sleekness, run a flat iron on the ponytail to make it pin straight. Finish off by applying hairspray for maximum hold. If you want to get even fancier, you can take a piece of the ponytail and wrap it around the base of it to hide the hair tie. Secure the hair around the hair tie with a bobby pin.
The hair poof. Tired of your bangs sticking to your sweaty forehead? Try the poof for instant elegance and a change of pace. Section off the crown of your hair, apply texturizing spray, and tease hair in small sections. Once the entire crown is completely teased, gently comb out the knots. Gather the ends of the teased hair into a ponytail and twist (gently you don’t want to remove the volume) and bobby pin the hair to hold it in place. Finish with hairspray.
