Summer is finally here! It is time to put down your flattening irons and blow driers. Say no to electric heat and walk to the beat of your own hair. With the recession showing no sign of stopping, low maintenance is in. Take this time as an opportunity to be reunited with the real you.
Try these summer hairstyles taken from the catwalk to the red carpet to the sidewalk!
Showdown: favor styles that take hair away from your face during the day. We suggest pulling hair back into a low ponytail. This style is easy to acheave and flattering on everyone. It keeps oils away from your skin and draws attention to your neckline. So keep earing size minimal, decoltage bare and play up your arm and hand accessories. Think about all the fun you can have mixing cuffs, bangles and cocktail rings for a freshly chic look.
Luscious waves: For night, loose waves are hot. Remember that a low maintenance look is what you are going for. Curls should be soft and look uneven. If your hair is naturally curly or wavy do yourself a favor and let nature take over for the summer. If you have issues with frizz there is a wide array of products out there designed just for you. (Actually in this case I should say: for us!)
1. Boost your shampoo by adding a tea spoon of cider vinegar to your regular formula. "Do this every other month to remove product buildup from and your hair will be much easier to style," says Ted Gibson.
2. Give your hair a glossier look by rinsing it with icy water in the shower. This cool trick helps smooth your hair's cuticle so it reflects more light. Side note: cold showers are also great to keep your skin firm and young. Ah! The wonders a cold shower can perform!
