3 Summer Hairstyles To Beat The Heat

1. The Side Braid

The key to an of the moment sexy side braid is loads of volume. Start by prepping hair with all over mousse and a root lifter for ultimate volume. Also, changing the direction of your part will add a natural boost. Start with a deep side part and gather hair at the base of your neck. Loosely braid all hair, leaving about an inch at the end and secure with an elastic that matches your hair color. Then, use your fingers to tug and separate the braid to create a look that is part Hollywood starlet and part Mermaid.

2. Beachy Waves

What’s more fitting for warm weather hair than Victoria’s Secret supermodel beachy waves? This effortless look is so simple you’ll be tempted to do it daily! Start by washing your hair the night before. With slightly damp hair apply a curl cream or spray to your hair and comb thru. Divide hair into 2 sections and twist each of them in the same direction leaving about an inch at the ends loose. Next, take the 2 twisted sections and twist them together into a bun and secure with bobby pins overnight. In the morning (or 4-6 hours later if you’re doing this during the day) remove the pins and let the twists loose. Use your fingers to break up the waves and create a messy, tousled look. Finish by spraying a bit of dry shampoo to create volume at the roots and use a Sea Salt spray to create added texture on the waves. Voila!

3. High Ponytail

The perfect way to style second day hair, a high ponytail with loads of volume! Start this look by brushing thru hair and using an SPF spray to protect those strands! Pull all hair back into a high ponytail and secure with a no-break hair tie. Take a 1 inch section of hair from the underside and wrap it around the hair tie and secure with a bobby pin to create a dressier look. Finish by gently teasing the crown of the pony tail for added volume and spray with a texturizing Sea Salt spray for added body and volume. This easy look is perfect for the beach or a night out on the town!
