10 Fresh Hair Ideas for Summer

Summer is the time for relaxation and vacation and now that it’s finally here, you need hair that is decidedly low-maintenance and simultaneously effortless. This summer’s hottest cuts and colors can be found from the Fashion Week runways to the city streets. The new looks include bold colors, blunt cuts, and edgy styles that will inspire you to embrace your natural texture and let loose in the summer heat.

 

1. Pale Blonde
It’s back to basics with this light, bright look.

There’s no better time to go blonde than the start of summer. Blonde hair illuminates skin and enhances your eyes for perfect makeup-free summer days. The sun will naturally brighten strands so you can take fewer trips to the salon. To avoid dry, damaged locks be sure to use Bright Blonde Radiance and Repair Treatment once a week. It will leave hair ultra-soft while keeping brassiness at bay.

 

2. Voluminous Lob
Make a statement with dramatic volume and fashionable length.

Keep your bob from looking drab with volume and thickness. Make sure your cut falls below the collarbone and has blended layers starting right below the chin. To maintain this universally flattering style, use Shampoo and Conditioner for Magnificent Volume.

 

3. Platinum Gray
Take it up a notch with this renegade fashion trend.

As the edgy alternative to blonde, gray has become fashion’s new staple. While the look is popular among models and influencers, it also appeared in both the Gucci and Chanel shows. When the color begins to fade it will evolve into a gorgeous icy blonde shade. 

 

4. Bob with Blunt Bangs
Step up your bob game with a new trendy edge.

Look runway ready with this trendy European style. A bob will keep you cool in the summer heat, while short fringe, which was featured at shows like Alexander Wang and Vera Wang, will add a rebellious edge to your classic style. Be sure to spray bangs with Dry Texturizing Spray for a strong finish.

 

5. Gradient Copper
Look fierce with this modern take on a classic color.

Turn heads with beautiful red hair this summer. Despite rumors that red only compliments fair skin, copper can actually be the perfect match to any complexion. Feel free to embrace natural textures, as redheads look good in straight or wavy styles. Gradient shades add volume and depth to even the thinnest of hair. Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray in Red can keep your color perfect all summer long.

 

6. Floating Highlights
Create your own natural summer halo with this breezy technique.

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance summer look try the newest balayage technique: floating highlights. Floating highlights are delicately placed to create a bright wash of color. With very little upkeep, this seamless color application can be your sole trip to the salon this summer.

 

7. Long layers
Dare to let it grow for easy, natural hair.

This easy hairstyle creates huge volume and added definition. Long layered hair can balance the width in your cheekbones and soften the angles of your jaw. A ragged edge can create a more natural and organic look. The style allows for a myriad of up-dos, perfect for summer barbecues and weddings.

 

8. Ultra-Long
Keep your options open with easy to style long locks.

Whether worn in a braid, high ponytail, or just let down and air dried, ultra-long hair is making a comeback this summer. Keep style simple with a deep middle part and Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray, scrunch at the roots.

 

9. Pastel Color Pop
Be bold with a hot statement color this summer.

Pastel colors have taken the beauty industry by storm and after appearing in both the Saint Laurent and Libertine runway shows, the trend isn’t passing anytime soon. When it comes to bright color it is important to choose wisely and invest in luxury product. Use Masque for Beautiful Color once a week to keep your pop from fading.

 

10. Short Shag
Look effortlessly chic without the hassle of hot tools.

Taylor Swift turned heads with her cropped new do on the cover of Vogue. Her chic, edgy shag was key to a fresh summer start. You don’t have to be on the runway to pull off this trendy style. Simply apply Matte Waves Texture Lotion and scrunch with fingers to acquire a bed-head, teased look.
