Summer is here, and the last thing any of us wants is to be locked in the bathroom while the sun is shining, stuck trying to create the perfect coif, with a plethora of curling irons, straighteners and rollers. We all want to get outside to enjoy the fleeting and short-term good weather.
Thank goodness the hair trends of the season preach an effortless look no matter what length of hair you have.
For ladies with long locks, lift tresses off your neck to stay cool and look cool, too. Try a simple top knot for a casual look, or divide that one knot into two at the nape of your neck for a more sophisticated, summery look. Braids are also on-trend, so weave yourself a side-swept hairstyle, or incorporate it into your top knot for a unique style.
Women with shorter hair can spice up a bob by adding beautiful waves. Add a few sprays of sea salt water (it’s as simple as it sounds: water, with sea salt added) to damp hair, and use the diffuser attachment on your hair dryer to achieve a textured, swinging look.
The pixie crop is another summer favourite this year. On a delicate, oval or heart-shaped face, this bold cut looks lovely and edgy at the same time.
Regardless of your length, you can update your tresses for summer convenience and style.
