Casual Summer Style

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

I love the casual feeling of style in the summer. Hair, this summer, has a light and airy, free-to-be-me, attitude. To adopt this attitude learn to let your hair do its own thing in a loose, unconstructed and sexy style. You will see Cameran Diaz, Selma Hayek, and Madonna wearing this very romantic look with a very soft, natural looking wave.

To get this look, first apply a blow serum or crème for control of fly-a-ways and to add body and shine. Allow your hair to fall naturally from a center or high side part. The bangs are swept off the face and to the side, then clipped down and allowed to air-dry to keep them flat. With your blow dryer set on low speed dry the rest of your hair using just your fingers to separate, fluff and allow any natural wave to show while the ends turn and flip without any set patter. You can encourage wave in some areas by scrunching your hair as it dries. ( See “How To Scrunch”)

When your hair is completely dry, use your fingers to arrange and tame it. Then apply a styling crème by scrunching it into the ends of your dry hair to take care of any frizzies.

Tip For Straight Hair
You might have hair that is so straight that ‘letting it do its own thing’ means that it will lay perfectly straight and flat. However, you may be able to achieve a natural looking wave, for special occasions, with only a little effort.


After you have tried the above method and your straight hair still refuses to bend or flip, grab a curling iron, at least one inch in diameter.
Begin by picking up a large strand of hair and applying the curling iron to the center of it. Turn the iron one or two rotations, as if you were creating a curl, but do not go all the way to the scalp or all the way to the ends. It is sufficient to put some movement in the middle of the strand only. Repeat this in several areas throughout your hair. Don’t curl every strand of your hair. Remember that the look you are going for is loose and natural.

Either of these methods will give your hair permission to fall naturally and you’ll have a romantic look for the summer months ahead.
