No matter how you may be spending the summer, it is the perfect time of the year to try something new with your hair. For those of you who are stuck for ideas, OROGOLD has picked out some of the hottest styles for this season to give you some exciting summer hair inspiration.
Nothing says summer like highlights in your hair. Although it can be damaging to your hair to let the sun naturally lighten it, highlights take no time at all when done by a professional. For those looking to save some money, OROGOLD recommends purchasing a highlighting kit that you can use at home. This may take some practice before you truly master the technique, but once you do, it will be worth the effort.
Sweeping Side Part
The deep, sweeping side part works for all hair types, whether you’ve got a short bob or long curls. This look has been seen all over the catwalks lately and works well for the summer, especially for slightly messy, beachy hair. After washing your hair, blow dry it in a deep side part and finish it off with a spritz of finishing spray.
Don’t Be Afraid to Accessorize
Hair accessories are huge this season, and with so many different types available, you are sure to be able to find some that suit your personal style. Whether you go for something simple, such as embellished hair clips, or something more seasonal making use of tropical flowers and summer prints, hair accessories can be incorporated into almost every hairstyle, giving even the simplest look a new dimension.
Many people suffer from frizzy hair in the summer due to the extra humidity, and a sleek, slicked back look is the perfect way to avoid this. Whether you slick it up into a tight bun or down into a low but elegant ponytail, applying a gel at the end to achieve the wet look will ensure that you don’t have to worry about the humidity, or any strays that may ruin the look.
For those of you with thick, curly hair who can’t seem to keep the frizz away in the summer humidity, even with the slicked back look mentioned above, it may be time to simply embrace your curls and emphasize them even further. Many stars, such as Solange Knowles, are going for big, disco-inspired hair, and it is a look that is easy to achieve. Simply step outside on a steamy day and allow the humidity to do its work, before brushing out your curls until they have doubled in volume. If you want to take this even further, OROGOLD suggests using a volumizing shampoo beforehand.
The change in climate during the summer months make them the ideal time to try something new with your hair. While a tightly slicked back look will keep everything in place, embracing the frizz will also enable you to have a great time without having to worry about your hair. Take the time to experiment with different styles, and, most importantly, have fun with it!
