Hairstyles to rock your summerMay 24th, 2009 | By meliha | Category: Beauty, Meliha
With summer just around the corner many of us are delving into our new wardrobes, so why not accompany it with one of the latest trend setting hairstyles . If you’re stuck on where to start, check out some of the reinvented looks fashioned by today’s A-list stars.
The Ponytail: Catwalks this year have been home to the up-dos- which range from slick ponytails to careless buns. To re-create this look hair has to be clean, straight and smooth, so use a good conditioner to keep hair at its best. Be sure to invest in a smoothing serum or cream to produce the most polished ponytail you’ve ever seen.
The Heavy Fringe: If you do decide to adopt this look make sure you go all the way; the biggest mistake you can make is getting a short fringe. The maximum fringe length should be just above your eyes. The problem with this look is that fringes tend to get separate and oily during the day so make sure to use clarifying shampoo; and to keep it in place try using an intensive firm-hold hairspray.
The Bed-Head: This is a care free tousled look that makes hair look both effortless and casual- but takes a lot of effort to make it just right. For this look heated rollers will not go a miss- it will help create a wavy relaxed look- use curl booster sprays in keep them in place and lightly brush in some wax or cream to add some final texture.
The Alice Band: This is a quick an easy way to accessorize and complete any outfit . Make sure your hair is straight and smooth, keeping the hair in super sleek condition. Whether you decide to keep it up or down, use serum to smooth out any kinks and bumps and go for a wide Alice band for a smart and fashion-forward look.
The Tousled Twist: Who would have though a bun could be so chic and hip? There are no exact rules for this style, just pull your hair up and pin it into a bun in whatever style suits you. Use creams and texturising lotion to give your hair hold and shape, finish it off with a shine spray to make sure your hair looks cute not dry.
The Boy-cut: On the other end of the spectrum, you can move away from soft, feminine hairdos and try a masculine hairstyle which is also becoming a summer favourite. Agyness Deyn’s trademark boyish crop is a perfect template for anyone who wants to copy the look. To create this short and sleek hairstyle, start by applying mousse or gel through your hair. Next, blow-dry your hair using a large round brush (pulling all the layers under and down). Then to add an extra smooth finish, run parts of your fringe through a flat iron and then top off the look with hair spray.
So here are the looks- but before you go at your hair with the closets pairs of scissors make sure you have the right face cut for these looks- otherwise you’ll end up with the longest bad hair day ever!
