Summertime and the living is easy… except for when it comes to hot, sweaty, sticky hair! It’s tempting to throw your mane up in a messy bun until fall comes around, but why not try out a new low-heat hairstyle instead?
These easy, breezy looks are perfect for searing-hot days when you want to look (and feel) cool. Bonus: most of them can be achieved in under 10 minutes. Keep reading to discover your new go-to summer style!
Textured Beach Waves
Hero Product: Hair Thickening Spray
Get This Look: Nothing says “summer” like just-went-surfing beach waves (even if you’re actually spending the day in the office). Separate damp hair into small sections and mist each section with Hair Thickening Spray. It contains sea salt for that perfect beachy texture!
Gently scrunch your hair to define the natural curl pattern. Finish by blow-drying with a diffuser or letting your locks air-dry.
A BOLD Braid
Hero Product: Hair Volumizing Powder
Get This Look: This beautiful braid is way easier than it looks, and the perfect way to get your hair off your face! Prep your hair with Hair Volumizing Powder for a visibly fuller, bigger style. Then divide the hair on your crown into three equal sections, as you would for a French braid.
Cross the right section under the middle section, then cross the left section under the new middle section. Continue braiding down to the nape area, picking up a small piece of hair and adding it to each section before bringing it under the center section.
Finish off with a standard three-strand braid. For extra volume, “pancake” the braid by pinching and pulling out small pieces.
Hero Products: Hairline Powder, Hair Volumizing Powder, Professional Teaser Hairbrush
Get This Look: A simple ponytail is THE classic look for those boiling-hot days when you just can’t be bothered. Let’s take it up a notch with a bump of volume at the crown!
Apply Hair Volumizing Powder to your roots in sections, then gently backcomb each section until you get the lift you want. Smooth out the surface of your hair as you pull it back into a ponytail. Secure with a hair tie. If you have any gaps in your hairline, use Hairline Powder for instant natural coverage. The Teaser Hairbrush is the perfect tool to help you in this look.
Loose, Laid Back Braid
Hero Products: Hair Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner, Hair Thickening Serum
Get This Look: We LOVE an intricate braided upstyle around here, but some days there’s simply no time for that! When you’re rushing from the pool to a summer soirée with barely enough time for a shower in between, try this laid backlook.
Start by washing your hair with Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner. Towel-dry and detangle your locks, then apply Hair Thickening Serum to nourish and protect. Create a center part and style your damp hair in two French braids. Wrap each braid around your head so that they cross just above the nape area, forming a “U” shape. Secure with bobby pins and you’re good to go!
Hero Products: Hair Volumizing Powder, Professional Teaser Hairbrush
Get This Look: This Insta-worthy style is surprisingly easy and sure to attract tons of compliments at your next get-together. Start by detangling your hair and massaging Hair Volumizing Powder into your roots. Comb the product through your ends for mega fullness.
Part your hair down the middle and create two pigtails at the level you want the space buns to be. For more voluminous buns, use the Teaser Hairbrush to tease each pigtail. Twist one pigtail until it coils around itself and wrap it into a bun. Secure the bun with a hair tie and bobby pins, then repeat on the other side. Finish with your favorite funky hair accessories!
Big Summer Blowout
Hero Products: Hair Thickening Serum, Hair Thickening Spray
Get This Look: The secret to a frizz-free soft blowout in summertime? Leave-in conditioner! Our Hair Thickening Serum weightlessly restores moisture to keep the sun from drying out your beautiful locks. Apply to damp, freshly-washed hair from mid-strands to ends.
Next, flip your head upside down and blow dry your hair 90% dry. Then stand up and finish your blowout with a large round brush, rolling the hair up and away from your face. Lock in the look with a blast of cool air from your blow dryer and a quick all-over mist of Hair Thickening Spray!
