    Summer Hair Styles

    Summer hair can be wicked!

    Summer hair texture can change in a flash from smooth and sleek, to a poofy, frizzy unmanageable mess and it happens in a flash! It’s like the famed ‘horse of a different color’ in the Land of Oz . . . you know what I mean, when you step out the door in the height of summer’s heat and humidity and your hair takes on the attributes of a whole different species.“Summer Hair
    Tune Up Tips”

    My summer hair, when left to its own demise, hardly resembles my normal hair type at all, at least that is for the remaining three seasons of the year. This appears to be true for the majority of people and the higher the humidity where you live, the more you can relate!

    Ahhh . . . but all is not lost and you are not destined to tout the Rosanna Rosanna Danna do’ throughout summers end! Just because your summer hair has a mind of its own, doesn’t mean you can’t outsmart its mischievous ways! When summer’s heat and humidity get wicked and you feel like just burying your head in the sand . . . take a deep breath, regroup, take the path of least resistance and . . .


    Great looking summer hair starts with a fresh hair cut. We get out more in summer; it’s the time of year to’ see and be seen.’ There’s so much more to do in summer, more people to see and more places to go, so don’t delay getting a hair cut to clean up your ends. Damaged hair never looks pretty and trimming is the only way to get rid of those ragged, damaged ends.


    This most important step will strengthen damaged hair and keep healthy hair from getting damaged. Condition your hair to add moisture and deep conditioning the hair to strengthen and add body and shine.


    Think about it! In the sun’s brightest light, your hair color will either be your shinning crown of glory, or . . . not! Seriously, at garden parties, the tennis court, the golf course or the beach, your hair color is right up front with nowhere to hide, (except under a flirty summer hat, which by the way, should be part of your summer hair protection plan.)

    Find a professional hair colorist, they are well worth their weight in gold. How many times have you seen it . . . lines of demarcation, the wrong hair color, hair color too light or dark, uneven or just a dull, dried out hair color? Now, in comparison picture great hair color like that of Jennifer Aniston, Kate Middleton, Kate Winslet, Jessica Alba, J.Lo, or Helen Mirren. If you’re going to color your hair, get it right and be lovely!


    Allow your summer hair type to be what it is and find ways to work with it, not against it. Consider the Buddhist philosophy of non-resistance and go with the flow, no fighting, no worries, be happy! If heat and humidity is in the air your hair will react and . . . it will prevail. So, why fight it?

    For wavy and curly hair types – layer the hair for a wash-n-go shape that fits your face shape and your hair style. Wavy or curly hair whether long, medium or short, will look best when cut to let it air dry and styled into shape with fingers.

    Wear more updo’s like, ponytails, braids, high buns, and twists. Summer is the perfect time to change your look with these fun, quick and easy hair styles. One or two hair care products are all you need to define your curl and keep it shiny and pretty. We like: Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner, Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam and Moroccan Oil Treatment.

    For straight and fine hair types – shampoo to keep the hair squeaky clean. A daily shampooing with a product formulated for your hair type will allow for the most shine and fullness. Add a favorite dry shampoo for a quick hair refresher when unable to shampoo. Wear plenty of updo’s, braid it, wear a variety of ponytails, buns and chignons and don’t forget headbands, barrettes, scarves, hats and other hair accessories that allow for style options.
