As summer approaches you realize that as itís getting hotter, and you are going to be outside more you want to lighten or freshen up your look. Sometimes you just want a new hairstyle to try out, or you want to go deeper and change the color of your hair. Below Iím going to explain many different styles, color ideas, and some products that are perfect for summer.
As everyone knows during the summer months, with the strong sun, not only does it affect your skin but it also affects your hair. The sun lightens your hair, it bleaches your hair. Some people love that look, and it can be very beautiful. Itís all about what you prefer for your hair. Are you going lighter this summer, or are you keeping your hair color maintained. For myself I am a natural blonde so during the summer months my hair just lightens naturally. I know many people who have naturally dark hair and they keep it dark during the winter months, and before summer and during they always want their hair to be a warmer shade, and have highlights added. It goes along the lines of spring cleaning, except your spring cleaning your look, and freshening up your style.
Now for hair styling, do you prefer your hair short and breezy in the summer, or long and beachy? I think both hairstyles are equally loved by everyone. I prefer my hair long and flowy because you have many options for how you can wear it. Also there is the other side and depending on many factors these people love the short hair, whether it be thatís the best look for you or you hate the maintenance of long hair. Whatever your case you can achieve any hair style you want for the summer.
Here are some very easy styles that you can try out for yourself. So if you prefer your hair long or short in the summer any of these styles will work for you, and one of the easiest styles to do is just letting your hair dry naturally, and also think of the health of your hair, you donít need any heat. My favorite style is braiding. Braiding is easy and doesnít take long, there are a lot of braiding styles that you can choose from, most people know the invisible braid that is the easiest and the most commonly known of braids. A nice tip for you to remember is that if you braid your hair when itís wet and let it dry completely, when you take it out you will have beautiful beachy waves which are what everyone wants in the summer, and you didnít need to do any heat damage to achieve that look. A lot of people have a fringe (bangs) and during the winter they are fine but in the summer when itís hot you just donít want anything in your face so you can braid your bangs back or along the side of your head and clip it back, it keep your hair out of your face and it is really cute. Another tip for keeping your hair back is using a head band, or wearing your hair half and half. Put the top half of your hair up and clip it I the back so you expose your underneath hair. Many people prefer to have their hair up and ďoff there neckĒ as they say so if you prefer that you can wear a loose bun, or sleek ponytail. A high ponytail can also be a high braid ponytail by just braiding the ends whichever way you prefer. As always if you need a hot tool for your hair to achieve a certain look, go for it.
As always whatever works for your life, your look, and your personality is for you to decide. Just remember youíre not limited and simple easy hairstyles can totally transform your look.
