After “summer-proofing” your hair care routine, it is now time to enjoy the summer: Keep feeling gorgeous with our round-up of the top looks to breeze through the holidays and beyond. These hairstyles will help you withstand any weather condition, from hot and stuffy air to humid, rainy weather.
1 | Waves
Easy to style and easy to maintain, waves are our favourite look this summer. Especially in a beachy windblown look, waves make every summer outfit look cool.
Massage a small amount of the product in the lower part of your hair, this will be enough to give your hair effortlessly stylish waves without weighting down your hair too much. No product at all? Braid your wet hair overnight - the smaller the braided section, the wavier the hair.
No one styles wavy hair as iconic, chic and stylish as Blake Lively:
2 | Ponytail
The most iconic hairstyle is here to stay - ponytails are our easy go-to hairstyle when time is short and your hair a mess. This season the ponytail comes in various forms:
Balloon ponytails are relatively new, trendy and functional at once. Section off your hair by using colourful ribbons and fluffing each hair segment.
For a more dramatic look, take your hair back in a sleek ponytail. This sophisticated, yet perfectly wearable pony will keep you look cool and classy all-day long.
Give the traditional ponytail an edge by wrapping a hair strain around your hair and tie it with bobby pins. This style is an easy way of taking your ponytail from day to night. (Wrapped Ponytail)
For all wavy but not too wavy ladies out there, embrace your natural hair structure and take your hair up to a tousled ponytail. Lean back when taking your hair up to add volume, tie your hair high up and loosen the front section of your hair to create an effortlessly looking “va-va-voom” ponytail.
Or you could give your ponytail a romantic twist by adding braided sections in any kind of form. (Braided Ponytail)
Our top tip for styling any kind of ponytail: Texturizing spray – its lightweight texture but strong hold helps you build definition, hold and a pliable finish.
3 | Braids and Bunches
Messy side braids, intricate bunches, tight twin plaits – set your creativity free, the number of hair styles is endless. Braids and bunches make a stylish and practical statement in the sun. They are styled within minutes, help to keep your hair out of your face, look super chic and will leave you ready for any occasion.
