Summer is here and with it comes some cool styles from slicked and glossed to disco curls.  You can beat the heat with a new twist on the classic bob or tame your tresses with an undone updo.  Dare to say no to highlights and instead, melt them with dark, ruddy brunettes and rich, deep shades.

A deep side part is bold and strong and creates a number of different styling options and looks with a single drag of the comb.  You can go smooth and elegant and tie it back or create the illusion of a swoopy bang. You can also accessorize it up with a great clip or even a simple bobby pin.

You can stay cool or at least look like you just stepped out of the ocean with a glossy wet look.  It’s high style and high shine or pool party casual chic depending on whether you’re wearing flip flops or sequins. Remember to keep your makeup raw and stark to complete the look.


Retro Curls

It’s a different kind of vintage glam. It’s 70’s retro.  If you have straight hair, break out those hot rollers and tease it up. If your hair is already curly, go with the flow and don’t forget to back comb for body around the bottom.


Undone Updos

Just throw it up and throw it back, the messier the better.  Undone is the new done up!  Whether you add a classy clip or headband, braid it or twist it, just make sure it looks effortless.  You just woke up like this, beautiful!


Choppy Bobs

You can have the look and feel of short hair without committing to a pixie.  Choppy, textured bobs are a great low-maintenance style  with a ton of versatility. The cut works with any hair texture  and you can decide whether it’s baby doll short or shoulder-skimming sexy, with fringe or without.  Putting it bluntly, you can’t go wrong!


Deep, Ruddy Brunettes

This summer, toss in your highlights and indulge in a rich, monochromatic shade with rich, subtle contrasts.  The warmth and depth of darker hair in the summer can be a beautiful distraction from over-processed, lightened hair.  It captures light deliciously and casts off gorgeous sunlit hues.
