Fashionistas. We know you love the summer but hate the heat. And while that may be an oxymoron, we understand. Nothing drives us more mad than getting all dolled up for a night on the town or for an important work meeting only to step outside and instantly feel our make-up melting off in the summer heat. Or worse yet…the feel of our perfect hairstyle changing shape due to the humidity. We want you to always look your best so our team of stylists at one of the best hair salons in Chicago have come up with a few summer hairstyles that will keep you looking fresh and feeling cool.
Thinking of completely changing your look? Why not be brave and try a short cut? The key to a great short cut is to pick the one that works best for you. Trends are a great way to find new hairstyles that are “in”. But, that means nothing if you choose a hairstyle or cut does not suit your lifestyle or face shape. Before you do the big chop, make a consultation with an expert stylist who can review styling choices and help you select the hairstyle that will enhance your features and best compliment you.
Make everyday a beach day…with your hairstyle. Creating a tousled, “messy” look is a foolproof way to beat the summer heat. Also, it’s great because this is one style you don’t need heat to achieve. Start with damp (or dry) hair, use a salt spray or super light mousse and coat a section of hair, and get to twisting. Twist the hair securely, forming a mini bun, scrunch and hold for a second, then let go. Repeat the process until all hair has been textured. The benefit of this look it is the perfect effortless style that plays into the carefree spirit of summer.
This style has been gaining popularity lately. Simply create a side-swept loose braid or, if you are feeling fancy, a french braid. This is a bonus style that can serve more than one purpose. The side braid keeps your hair away from your face and off your neck (somewhat). If you are heading out later, you can simply re-braid your hair for a fresh look or un-braid it to create great texture for a night out on the town.
Tried and True
If all else fails, a ponytail or bun are two fail-safe styles that always work to beat the heat. These classic styles are easy to customize, fun and…did we say easy? Because is it summer, there is no need to create a slick, precise bun or ponytail. Simply gather up your hair, toss a hair-tie around it and go!
