Luckily, we’ve got some easy summer hair styles will keep you looking cool and chic no matter the occasion. The style-savvy team at Number 4 Professional Hair Products, we’ll walk you through some easy hairstyles that you can rock from the beach to the boardwalk. Plus, we’ll recommend some of the best Number 4 paraben-free hair products to achieve those looks.
First Up, What’s the Deal With Humidity?
Before we look at fail-proof summer hair styles, a quick word about humidity. Humidity can be a nightmare for hair. It causes frizz and makes it difficult to style. This is because the moisture in the air causes the cuticles on your hair shaft to swell and lift, resulting in a rough texture. Poof!
Humidity also affects the elasticity of your hair, making it more prone to breakage. Oh, snap!
You should use hydrating and deep-conditioning products such as Number 4’s sulfate and paraben free Hydrating Shampoo and Condition to protect your hair from humidity. Additionally, you should opt for protective styles like braids or buns to secure hair away from the elements.
You can also apply an anti-frizz serum or cream like Number 4 Smoothing Balm on wet hair before styling for extra hydration and protection against humidity. Or and please consider investing in a super chic sunhat when sunbathing. That’s one of the most effective ways to protect hair from the sun’s rays while in humid weather.
3 Easy Summer Hair Styles for Humid Weather
These are our top three Number 4 stylist-approved ways to help manage hair in humid weather.
Style 1 | Beachy Waves
Embrace your texture. Beach waves are a classic summer hair style that is perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re lounging on the sand or attending a beach party, beach waves will keep you looking effortless and carefree.
To achieve this look without taking an ocean plunge, start with damp hair and apply some Number 4 Smoothing Balm, then scrunch in Sugar Texturizing Spray to add some texture and control. Blow dry your hair with a diffuser attachment. Optional – for enhanced curl, wrap small sections of hair around a curling wand.
Finish with some Number 4 Mighty Hair Spray to hold your waves in place.
Style 2 | High Ponytail
A high ponytail is a summer staple that is perfect for keeping your hair out of your face on hot and humid days.
To achieve this look, start by applying Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect to damp hair to protect it from heat styling and comb through. Blow dry your hair straight and then gather it into a high ponytail at the crown of your head. Secure it with a hair tie and wrap a small section of hair around the base of the ponytail to hide the elastic. Smooth flyaways with a dab of Texture Styling Crème and finish with some Number 4 Number 4 Non Aerosol Hairspray to keep your ponytail in place.
Style 3 | Crown Braid
Braids are a versatile and easy summer hair style that can be dressed up for a wedding or dressed down for a day at the beach.
To achieve this look, start with damp hair and apply Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect to detangle and protect your hair. French braid your hair starting at the nape of your neck of your head and continue braiding all the way around the crown adding hair each time. Once your reach your starting point, secure your braid with a hair tie. Pin the tail under your starting point to hide the ends.
