Summer hair to wear now!

Tuesday, 27 November 2012

It’s hot outside. So who wants to sit for hours trying to style hair? Pack away the styling irons and hair dryers and embrace your inner hippie with these easy-to-wear styles.

Summer hair to wear now!

1. Going natural

The best way to relax and enjoy your summer hair is to go with its natural fall and texture. That said, products are extremely important to maintain the health of your natural look and to keep you loving it! To tame frizz try Davines Oi Oil.

2. The messy bun

This is another very cute, beachy style, especially when your hair is slightly dirty. Gather your hair into a loose pony in the desired place and section the hair into three pieces. Once sectioned, twist and clip the pieces into the pony. It’s simple and quick. To hold your style, spritz lightly with hair spray.

3. A loose plait

A fun one for the beach… just pull the hair back and plait. When finishing off your plait, wrap a small section of your hair around the elastic band to hide it. Simply wrap and tuck the hair through the band. If your hair is really frizzy and curly and you’d like to tame it a bit, try a Tutanat Brazilian blowout.

Another must-have for summer is the Davines naturaltech detoxifying scrub shampoo – use it to get rid of any chlorine and/or sea salt after swimming.
