Waves of Summer
Written by Curtis Hunter   

Bring on the heat! Summer is finally here and it’s the perfect time to let your hair down. The warmer months call for a free-spirited approach to beauty, so put away those straighteners and let your inner beach babe shine. This year’s top summer trends focus on natural movement and golden hues.

1. Sunny Highlights

Summer hair is all about soft warmth and movement.  Lighten your locks with balayage for a sun-kissed look. The freehand technique gives hair natural depth and dimension.

2. Bombshell Brunette

Rich golden browns with plenty of shine and a glossy finish are a great way to create a healthy-looking head of hair. Add soft waves to take your look from day to night seamlessly.

3. Easy Waves for Day

A buttery blond with sunny highlights is the definition of summer when it comes to hair colour. For a day look, gently curl your locks with an iron and add some texture spray.

4. Sculpted Texture for Night

To transform your look for hot summer nights, try some teasing and pinning to change the silhouette of your hair. Have fun with texture!

Summer Makeup Tip: “Change up your breezy day look for an evening out by adding thicker eyeliner and a bold brow for cool sophistication. For those loving the balayage trend, bronzed skin and a shimmery gloss are the perfect complement.”
