When it comes to your hairstyles this summer, it’s always about getting that laid back look without the hassle. For anyone who knows me, I never spend more than 10 minutes (maybe 20 tops if I’m going to attempt to straighten it…but that’s a rare occurrence) on my hair. And why should you? You should be spending your days hiking outside and soaking up the sun instead of fussing to get every curl and every strand perfect. So in honour of that low maintenance babe, here are my top 3 hairstyles that you HAVE to try this summer!
The Beachy Braids
No matter what your hair texture is, you can’t go wrong with a beachy braid. From a more polished look to a boho braid, let your hair fall free this summer. To get this look, I recommend using the OGX Thick and Full Biotin & Collagen Root Boost Spray, by dabbing spray below your roots for volume and pull lightly at your braid for a romantic, low-key look. For a little extra TLC, try washing your hair with their full line of shampoo and conditioners first! Or, if this is a second day after washing style for you, give your hair a bit of a re-fresh with a great dry shampoo like the powder bluff by Kerastase Paris.
There is nothing better in the summer than letting your natural hair go free. But the sun and heat on your hair can take a toll on your precious locks. I use Redken’s Frizz Dissmiss line to help protect my hair against the humidity in the summer and give it and help give my sun-damaged hair a little bit of of love! To finish my look, I’m loving the OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray , which give your hair that textured beach look even when you are way from the water for a beautiful laidback wave on straight hair or tousling the curly for thicker hair.
This summer is all about the top knot. You are seeing it everywhere! Long hair, short, curly, straight, the nautical bun shows no biases. Ideal for the beach but perfect for the city too! Keep your top knot fly-away free with a first nourishing your hair with a great hair mask, shampoo and cream product like the PHYTOKERATINE Extreme (sold at Mural) to help enhance the natural look your hair in an instant! Looking to accessorize your high-bun? Add some variety to the look with a great scrunchy or hair clip like these ones from Sephora!
