Dear Little Sister,
Let's do something fun this week! I decided to share my top 5 favorite summer hairstyles. These are my absolute favorites this year, and I've found that I only use my curling wand/straightener once a week. If you want, you can try these styles with your hair pre-curled or straightened, but they work beautifully with ALL hair lengths, styles, and textures.
They are also travel friendly!!!! (So be on the lookout for next week's blog post! I will be sharing my tips on how to make traveling easier! Especially when you fly!!)
What you'll need...
Bobby Pins, hair ties, and some kind of hair spray/texturizer/sea salt spray for additional "umph!"
This summer -it's the texture tease by Garnier! It's lightweight-but REALLY adds a fun beachy texture to your hair. It's VERY affordable too! AND IT SMELLS FRESH! (it's always in my car if I need to touch up!) Just spray this before or after any style for a breezy
These are super fun AND super easy to do because...the messier they look, THE BETTER! Simply separate your hair
into two simple braids. Then for a laid-back look, simply pull
at the braid to create a fuller look. And if a few strands come out? That's ok! (P.S. This look is even better 2nd day!)
Ever struggle with 2nd-even 3rd day hair? Braids are your secret weapon-especially in summer! But this look literally takes 1 minute to do.
Just take the braids you've already done(or quickly braid them), and cross them in the back!!
back. Pull some pieces to frame your face and VIOLA!
3.Half done and fun
If you didn't notice, braids are a staple for me. But! If you have yet to master the the traditional braid, or would just like something different, you can use any method with this style. You can simply pull hair back and place a hair accessory in the
middle, fishtail braid it, or even twist your hair back to create a little dimension. Just a few bobby pins and you're all set!
4.The Car Updo
True story...I do this hairstyle in the car before work. lololol don't judge me...Take your bangs(or just the hair that frames
your face) and twist it back as if it's a half up half down. Then take the rest of your hair and twist it into a low bun. Use a ponytail holder(or 1,000 bobby pins) to secure in place!
5.The Unicorn braid
When I saw this style...my heart stopped. This can also be referred to as the "Rapunzel" or "the fairy" or "the ultimate french braid." This is when you can let your creativity really run wild! It is basically a braid of your choice, with a few accessories incorporated in. You can tie a ribbon or streamer onto the top of your head, then continue to braid however you would like. The ribbon will peak through leaving a fun intricate look. Feel free to add bows, or my favorite-flowers!! And Hey! A flower crown never hurt!!
Your look should be just that-YOURS! So don't be afraid to be creative! Summer is the time to play around and find a new style to rock before the new school year!
