Keeping it cool and still looking hot!
Posted: Sep 23 2012
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean that you have to retire those hot styles. Here is a re-cap on our fave summer ‘dos that can carry you over into fall!
THE BUN: A savvy bun always looks chic and can be worn in several ways. For the fashion forward, a clean bun toward the front of your head has been seen on the runways and on Gwen Stefani. A low chignon as seen below on Kourtney Kardashian is more of a classic go-to. You can wear either style clean and tight or let them get a little messy. I favor buns both ways depending on the look you’re going for.
THE BRAID: The braid comes in handy for so many reasons! Dirty hair days, bad hair days, dress it up, dress it down, go to the beach or for hangin’ in the city. And most importantly – everyone can rock a braid! Deciding what type of braid is half the fun! To the side, down the middle, over the crown of your head… Check the below pics for some of my fave crossover styles.
WAVES: The easiest way to bring out your inner surfer chick is to braid your clean wet hair before you go to bed. In the morning, you’ll wake up ready to hit the sand. A more styled version would be to let your hair air dry and with a 1 1/2″ curling iron, take sections of your hair and wrap it around the iron. After doing this all around your head shake it out. My favorite products for this look are hair serums (Morrocan Oil or Redken Glass) used to lock in moisture and give great shine. Always finish it with a salt spray – it really gives you that beachy look. My favorite is Bumble and Bumble’s Beach Spray.
