BEAUTY TIP MONDAYS – SUMMER LOCKS
With summer on it’s way and everybody gearing up for house parties and summer barbecues, your outfits are being planned but have you been sorting out your hair and makeup, too? Don’t stop at sequin dresses and killer heels, go all out and turn heads with this season’s hottest going out hairstyles. Here are some that we can’t wait to try!
Sleek and simple
It may not seem like much, but poker straight hair slicked back in to a low pony tail or a bun is a popular look this season and has been seen sported on the catwalks and by many celebs (we’ve seen Jessica Alba, Beyonce and Cara Delevingne rocking this look!). Part your hair to the side and secure it in a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, finishing off with plenty of hairspray to tame any flyaways.
If the neat look isn’t for you, channel your inner bohemian chic with a messy plait. Loosely braid your hair in to a simple side plait and gently tug at each section to achieve a more imperfect finish. Finish off with some flower-shaped accessories for the ultimate bohemian look.
Can’t decide if you want to go neat or messy? Why not go for both? Mixed texture hair is a big trend for bold girls this season. Slick down the roots of your hair with a generous amount of hair gel or hairspray and go wild with the rest! Wave it, curl it, back comb it; anything goes!
As we said above, it all about being chill this year. Understated. Gucci sunglasses, but not looking like you care kinda thing. Cool hair should never look too ‘done’. Back comb hair with your hands and twist random sections pinning it low. Spritz your hands with a medium hold spray and pull strands out to encourage fly-aways and a distressed finish.
