Summer is awesome. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the sky is blue – but your hair may not be so happy. Summer absolutely poses some styling challenges. Blow drying can take longer and frizz is pretty much par for the course. If you leave your hair to air-dry, it may not come out as beautiful as you imagined it would. Have no fear! There are two styles you can use as your go-to this summer that will deliver beachy waves without a lot of effort.
The first thing you need to do is to add shine serum or mousse through your damp hair. This will add smoothness and control.
Your Two Options
You can either tie your hair in a tight top knot or secure it with one long bobby pin (not a band!) to keep the kinks at bay. The tighter you make the knot the better, because if you do it tight enough it with smooth out and create a nice wave in your hair when you let it down.
If you want to go for a messier texture, try using a salt spray instead of a serum and gather your hair at the nape of your neck. Divide your hair in half and then twist the sections tightly around each other in opposite directions.
Once your hair has dried just undo it. Then voila! No stress summer tresses!
