Embrace The Summer Season With Simple Stylish Hair Options And Pretty Summer Dresses

4 Jul

1. A Side of Glamour Girl: Take a cue from stylist Jordan M.’s look at the Alexander Berardi spring ’11 show and pull loose waves into an easy, breezy take on the low pony—just sweep it to the side. A delicate, lacy dress rounds out the romantic, Brigitte Bardot-inspired vibe.

The Products: Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray, $26, available at Bumble and bumble; Sedu Revolution Clipless Curling Iron, $199.99, available at Folica.com.

2. Parisian Prep: Add some volume at the crown and a sleek headband for a modern take on a ’60s ponytail. Blow-dry gel keeps hair soft and frizz-free, and a touch of hairspray locks the style in place. Since the look is simple, choose a dress with a vibrant pattern.

The Products: Redken Velvet Gelatine 07 Cushioning Blow-Dry Gel, $17, visit Redken for locations; L. Erickson USA Ultra Comfort Headband Silk Shantung in Noir, $24, available at France Luxe.

3. Braided Beauty: For the hottest days (and nights), this French braid-bun combo gets your hair completely out of the way while mixing a little edge with elegance. Plus, it’s a perfect style for second-day hair, and it works with bangs, too. (Just start the braids closer to the hairline to incorporate shorter bangs.) Pair it with a patterned dress for an extra dose of the wild side.

The Products: Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray, $21, visit Moroccanoil for salons; Oscar Blandi Pronto Instant Glossing Cream, $19, available at Sephora.

4. Flower Girl: We love a good hair accessory, but really the only acceptable time to rock a flower is in the summer, or at a wedding. So, follow Marc Jacobs’ ’70s glam lead and go with sexy volume and a flower tucked behind the ear. Keep the focus on the hair and pick a simple ensemble with clean lines—feel free to amp up the disco feel with a one-shoulder dress.

The Dress: J.Crew Toga Dress, $150, available at J.Crew.

The Products: Goody English Rose Clips, $5.49 each, available at Target; Tigi Catwalk Root Boost Spray Mousse, $14.95, available at Tigi; L. Erickson USA Silk Charmeuse Confetti Flower Clip in Shoal, $198, available at France Luxe.

5. Updated Beach Hair: Without a doubt, textured beach hair is the style of the summer. Take the look one step further—and help keep your hair off your face—with a side swoop anchored with a small, fishtail braid. (You can add a beach spray to damp hair and air-dry, or spray on dry hair for a dose of texture). A flowy maxi-dress rounds out the beachy, boho aesthetic.

The Products: Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam, $15, available at Aveda; Oliver Ifergan Atelier Day At The Beach Sea Spray, $24.77, available at Oliver Ifergan.

6. Your High-ness: A high, sleek ponytail meets the classic braid is a quick and easy, warm weather-approved ‘do. The tricks to getting that height? Stylist Rodney Cutler recommends blow-drying roots away from the face in a slightly upward direction and securing hair with a bungee cord to keep it in place.  And make sure to balance out the intensity of the pulled-back look with a brightly colored maxi-dress.

Summary: During the summer season it’s pretty natural to want to wear a light pretty dress every day of the week. It’s nice to embrace the beautiful weather while it lasts.

For women with longer hair, there are options other than the go-to ponytail or banana clip for a simple summer hairstyle – one that keeps your hair out of your face, is low-maintenance and still looks stylish despite the havoc the Valley’s harsh climate can cause.

Not only are these styles easy, they rely on imperfection and messiness as key elements. Whether you want your hair down and wavy or up and out of the way, there is a style that could work for your next summer soiree.
