Yes, you read right. Only 5 minutes! Summer and beautiful hair are sometimes not the best of friends. Heat and humidity can get in the way of all your careful plans when it comes to styling your locks! BUT, never fear! Here are 4 foolproof ways to look stylish and hot this Summer, that will only take around 5 minutes of your morning routine! Now that’s the kind of style I’m into!
The High Ponytail
Take your standard ponytail and take it higher for an up-to-date, sassy look! Two of the best rules are to tilt your head backward as you gather your hair. This leaves the nape nice and tight. It also looks fabulous if you follow the natural line of your cheekbone – sleek and sensational! Keep that high pony up by finishing off with a spritz of Serge Normant Must Haves Meta Luxe Hair Spray with UV Protection. It provides long-lasting, touchable hold, and is the perfect finishing touch to this style as it protects color from fading with UV filters and strengthens with Vitamin B5. It also stops little flyaways to keep the look sleek and chic.
The Messy Top Knot
Take a classic high top knot and rough it up a bit to make it look current. Imperfections and stray strands make it look more current. One of the tricks to a top knot is to use larger bobby pins, and smooth the flyaways around the hairline, with a small amount of serum, such as Kérastase Paris Densifique Serum Jeunesse Hair Youth Serum. It restores the youthful softness of hair, with ceramides to help bring shine and suppleness to the fiber. So, remember the rules for this do – smooth around the hairline, messy on the actual bun – hey presto – you’re looking so “right now”!
The Center Parting and Low Ponytail
One of THE easiest and most classic styles that always looks groomed and polished is a center hair parting swept into a sleek and stylish low ponytail. Use a smoothing conditioner like Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner, to help seal hair cuticles. This locks the colour and shine with a gorgeous natural organic aroma. This product means less damage from the sun, water and environmental stresses, so hair can detangle and shine – perfect for pulling off this classic style.
Soft, Gentle Waves
Few styles shout “Summer” as much as tumbling, gentle waves. Keep it natural by running a shine serum like the Kérastase Paris Densifique Serum Jeunesse Hair Youth Serum and blow drying with a large round brush for those gorgeous, glossy waves, and the summer look is nailed!
