Summertime means the weather is warming up. One of the things every woman worries about is her hair. Summertime hair can be difficult, to say the least. Here are some hairstyles that are both chic and easy. These looks are also hot right now. It is a bonus that they can be worn on the water or off, so they are definitely beach worthy.
Who doesn’t love a ponytail? One of the great things about a ponytail is the ease. In fashion shows ponytails are being worn in a variety of different styles. They are sometimes low and flat, high and perky, tucked under, and slicked back. Ponytails are so versatile that they can be flattering on anybody. Ponytails which are slicked back can be used for formal occasions but they can also be worn for casual occasions.
A variation on the ponytail is a pony-bun. That is when a ponytail is pinned down to look like a messy bun. It is a good casual yet chic look. A loose ponytail is a casual, easy to create look that is perfect for summer.
Another style that is great for summer is wavy hair. Models are rocking this look on the runway and it looks so effortless that it seems like the models did their own hair. The way to give yourself the look that is popular right now requires you to do a rough blow dry on your wet hair. Don’t comb or brush your hair while you blow dry. Then, use a curling iron to do some subtle looking curls. Finally, rake through the hair with your hands. In the end the hair should look like it has not really been styled very much.
Glistening hair is one of the most low maintenance looks of the season. The hair looks like it is wet and barely wrung out. This style has the look of innocence but it can be glamorous when pair with eyes and lips that are bold.
Embellishments on Updos
This season, updos are big. They are not just your everyday average updo, however. Updos are getting a makeover with barrettes, hair pins, and other accessories. On the Yves Saint Laurent runway chignons were seen secured with caged barettes. At Chanel, chic hair knots were adorned with pearls. At Jason Wu feathers made a statement. Another way to make a statement on an updo is to add a dash of color. Hilights or lowlights on an updo can make a statement.
Another trend for the summer that will look right on trend is a big blowout. Hair that is big and bouncy is a great look that doesn’t require a lot of tools to achieve. This type of elegance is what makes it fun to be a girl. You can experiment with the size of curlers you use to get different looks.
Twists and Braids
Hair is fashionably chic with braids and twists this summer. The inspiration for this look at Armani was a woman who pinned up her hair without putting much thought into it. This look is achievable for every woman. Twisting your hair or making a pretty plait is one way to draw attention to your neck. Alexander McQueen had small braids wrapped around a model’s head like a crown for a dramatic look.
The look you choose depends on what you are comfortable with. You can try one of these looks for the summer or try a few of them. No matter what you choose to do, you will be right on trend as these are the looks that models on the runways are wearing right now.
