Summer has traditionally been a season for fun, sleek styles. From
the latest handbags, accessories, and beachwear to the way you style
your hair, you are sure to find a fun and fit style for summer with
ease. When you’re looking for that perfect summer hairstyle
there is a lot to keep in mind. The heat and sun can both be cruel
to our hair. So, be sure you’re using moisturizing and anti-frizz
hair care products. If you dye your hair, know that the sun can speed
up the fading of your color. You also do not want anything overcomplicated.
Too complicated means more time in front of the mirror and less time
having fun in the sun.
There are a few key rules to summer hairstyles,
though. Keep it fun and flirty. Short is in, and a sure way to beat
the heat. Even if you can’t go with short, you want to work
with your summer hairstyle to keep it up and off your neck. How
about a Fancy Updo, for example? Start with a classic French Twist,
pull your hair into a Ponytail, and tuck the Ponytail under the
Twist. Secure the style with a few bobby pins and pull a few tendrils
out to frame the face. Toss a light application of hairspray on
there and you have a great summer hairstyle. The pixie cut or razored
pixie cut looks great with shorter, straight hair. Also great with
short hair just above shoulder length is the traditional bob cut.
This summer hairstyle works well with both straight and wavy hair,
but is best with straight hair.
For a neat and relatively simple summer hairstyle, you could go
with a long and loose look. This is for those ladies with long hair.
Use a heat protectant spray to protect your hair and then apply
medium or medium and small-sized hot rollers. Now, you’ve
got a playful hairstyle just for summer. Staying with the simplicity
of summer fun for summer hairstyles, try a casual updo. Pull your
hair into a ponytail, and twist it up. Or, pull your hair into a
bunch on top of your head and secure it with bobby pins.
For men, summer hairstyles are relatively simple. Try a simple
buzz or crew cut. Its keeps the hair short and require minimal maintenance
while withstanding the tests of fun and sun. Men with long hair
can also go with a simple, classic ponytail for a summer hairstyle
as well. This will work, but be prepared to condition and pamper
your hair a little more during the summer than during other seasons.
The key rule of thumb with any summer hairstyles is that you want
it to be simple and keep you cool. Too much hair can cause more
sweat and heat, something always worth avoiding. You also want to
be sure that your summer hairstyle fits your summer activities.
Relying on hairspray or gel while also planning on spending time
swimming or surfing can be somewhat counterproductive. Just remember,
because it looks good doesn’t mean the summer hairstyle you
choose is going to suit you in all situations
