The weather is warming up and the sun is high in the sky. Changing seasons not only mean transitioning our wardrobes but revamping our hairstyles to reflect a new carefree attitude. Put away the heavy pomades and flatirons; summer is for loose, lightweight hair. Here are four styles that will carry you through summer with your crown and glory in tact.
1. Curly Fro
What says summer fun more than the larger-than-life curly fro? Natural sisters have known the power of the curly fro for years but this look can be achieved for everyone by using a curl defining product like Miss Jessie’s or Mixed Chicks and taking down a braid out or twist out. It’s fluff and go hair that will say “I’m having too much fun to care about fussy styles!”
2. Short & Sweet
When the weather heats up, the last thing we want to be worried about is sweating out our hair. This is a time when those with long hair do care! If you’ve been on the fence about sporting a cropped ‘do, the summer is the perfect time to pull of the sheers and go short and sweet.
3. High Ponytail
If cutting your locks is not an option but you want to revamp your long style, why not rock a high ponytail? Pulling your hair up gives more attention to your sun-kissed skin and smile! Grab a lightweight hair polish like Carol’s Daughter Weightless Shine Mist and go!
4. Bold Color
Coloring your hair sends a bold signal and blonde, auburn red or an off the wall pink or blue may be just what your tresses need! If you’re hesitant about dye, try a few faux pieces that can serve as highlights until you get the hang of it.
