Today is the first day of summer, and the last thing we want to be doing when the summer heat and humidity kicks in is struggling with our hair. Suddenly, blowing it out, and spending hours styling it does not seem as appealing as it does in the cooler winter months. In today’s journal we are sharing Easy Hairstyles For Hot Summer Days, to keep you cool all summer long. Follow along to see some of our favorite looks from Pinterest.
Embrace Your Curls
Now more than ever is an ideal time to embrace your curls if you have curly hair and are looking for options with less maintenance that will keep you cool. Styling your hair curly is simple to do, start with hydrating products like our Iles Formula Shampoo and Conditioner. Our shampoo is sulfate free, which means that it won’t strip the hair of it’s natural oils, keeping your curls frizz free. Top it off with our Finishing Serum, applied to damp hair liberally. The serum will provide your curls not only with control but UV protection which in turn protects your color from fade while leaving you with beautiful bouncy, soft curls, never crunchy or stiff curls. Apply section by section, and twist your curls in the direction that they naturally form, and allow your hair to dry naturally.
The Wet Look
The wet look is another one of our choices for Easy Hairstyles For Hot Summer Days. An abundance of our Hair Mask & Finishing Serum is all you will need to rock this easy to do summer style. Apply the products heavier at the root area and lighter on the ends. Slick the roots with a comb and allow the ends to flow naturally. You can also apply the products heavy from roots to ends and slick your hair into a bun. You can get creative and still have a low maintenance style that will keep you feeling refreshed.
Go For Braids
We talk about braids a lot when we refer to low maintenance hairstyles, the reason is because if your savvy with braiding, you can braid your hair when its wet, and you should be able to get several days out of the style. Use our serum when braiding to protect against UV, humidity frizz and provide control. After a couple of days, release the braids and apply some serum and you will now have a beach style that will get you through another couple of days. Get creative with your braids, search you tube for some fun braiding tutorials and have some fun. Think outside of the box, and try different types of braids.
Dig into your hair accessory drawer and pull some out to use for styling your hair. When your styling your hair for summer and trying to keep cool, think about ways you can use your accessories to do so. Headbands, and scarfs are the perfect summer essentials. Think about trying something new with your accessories. For example, why not wrap a headband around a low ponytail and twist it up into a chignon. We just love how the scarf ribbons itself through the bun, creating an easy but stylish summer option.
The Go To Ponytail
Don’t be afraid to sport a simple ponytail. Styled smooth or with texture, either option will work. A ponytail works for a day at the beach, a brunch with friends, or an evening on the town. Keep your makeup simple and add a pop of color to your lips like corals and pinks, for a refreshing summer glow.
The key to easy summer hairstyles is keep it simple. Try to avoid drying and curling your hair, as your hair will already undergo enough stress from the sun and heat. Our Iles Formula Finishing Serum will protect your hair from the suns harsh rays, so if you are using the serum this will be helpful.
