With a change in the weather and the summer heat rapidly increasing, it’s time for a change in hairstyles to suit the weather. Here are the top 5 hairstyles for summer this year.
Sleek Fishtail Braid
This hairstyle works with medium to long length hair. This look gives a more polished and sleek look and feeling. This hairstyle is easy to maintain through the day without much touch up required.
Blow-dry hair using fingers until it’s three-quarters of the way dry, then work in mousse from root to end. Use a paddle brush to finish blow-drying and smoothing strands. Make a deep side part and swoop the rest of your hair over to the opposite side, slightly behind your ear. To start the fishtail braid, divide hair into two sections. Work your way down by taking a thin piece from the outside right section and joining it with the left. Next, do the reverse: take a thin piece of hair from the left section and join it with the right. Continue until you have about 1 inch left at the end.
The Bob Cut
This hairstyle is for those who want to keep their hair short and easy to maintain. The bob has been in fashion for some time now, but the difference this year in that they are edgier. Bluntly cut, short fringes, and with bright colors. This hairstyle is definitely going to make you look and feel very cool this summer. This look can be varied in length, till the nape of your neck.
The simple but glamorous ponytail
The ponytail may be a simple looking hairstyle, but it can be quite glamorous if done right. It works well even for an evening out. This works well with most lengths of hair. Some amount of time needs to be spent on styling to give it a clean, neat, and glam look.
Apply a spray gel along hairline and use a flat nylon-boar bristle brush to blow-dry hair away from face. Be sure to keep the nozzle attached to blow-dryer to get the smooth finish. Mist your brush with a light styling spray and brush hair back into a pony. Keep your head forward and straight for a tighter, cleaner-looking pony. When your head is tilted down it stretches the nape area causing hair to loosen. Smooth out uneven areas with a fine-tooth comb, paying special attention to baby hairs.
The Top knot
This is one of the easiest hairstyles to achieve and to maintain. This hairstyle works with varied lengths of hair from medium to long length hair. Gather your hair in a high ponytail and then instead of wrapping it in a bun before securing, simply tie it in a knot and then pin, leaving some strands out and the very ends to give it a bit of edge. For those with longer styles, just try adding one twist to the ponytail before wrapping hair into a bun and then braid it.
Side parted hairstyle
Wear it if you have short hair or long hair. It matters not. It goes without saying that if you have hair, you can part it to the side – even the tightest of curls will be receptive to a side part provided the right hair product is used.
This hairstyle is best done on washed hair. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. This will serve as your blank canvas. Towel dry your hair until it’s damp and apply volumizing spray or mousse all over it. Next, take a blow dryer and roughly dry your hair for a natural look. You can use your fingers to comb your hair as your dry it. Once your hair is dried, create a deep side part using your fingers.
Finish this hairstyle off by tucking your hair behind your ears. This gives it that strong yet youthful feel. To keep it tucked, secure these sections with pins.
