With the Rio games taking over, it got us thinking…what hairstyles ruled the competition this summer? Whether headed to a backyard barbeque or a summertime soiree, we’re willing to bed you’ve rocked at least one of these looks this season, if not more! And if you haven’t played with these styles yet, there’s no time like the present. In honor of this year’s exciting event, we’re taking a look at the 5 hairstyles that would definitely take the gold in the 2016 summer hair games.
Braids, Braids, Braids
From deconstructed and messy to sleek and tight, there are a million different ways to wear braids. If double-dutch braids aren’t quite your style, try adding a few tiny peek-a-boo braids throughout your beach-y waves and embrace your inner boho vibes. Braids are as pretty as they are practical and are a great way to give your strands a break from hot tools. To keep your hair from slipping while you style, apply a bit of Texture Styling Crème to hair before braiding. We doubt this trend is going out of style anytime soon!
The braid’s best accessory, these little charms are popping up everywhere. From Christina Aguilera to Kim Kardashian, celebrities are loving this trend and having some serious fun with it – as they should! It’s playfully chic in all the right ways and adds a touch of edge to any outfit.
It would be impossible to talk about this summer’s top styles without mentioning the renowned top knot. It’s perfect for those sweltering summer days when you’re just not in the mood to style your hair but you want to at least fool people into thinking you tried (don’t lie, we’ve all been there!).
Mermaid hair has taken over Instagram and we totally don’t mind our feeds being filled with photos of this ethereal ‘do. This style makes the most out of pastel or vibrant color, blending a multitude of hues together for a beautiful result that just might make you believe in mermaids! And although this colorful technique first made its debut on long locks, it looks just as enchanting on short styles too. Keeping these colors from fading can be tricky, but lucky for you our Hydrating Shampoo is just what you need to stay vibrant!
Nothing screams summer like tousled, beachy waves – this look is generally recognized as the hottest hairstyle of summer, although it can be rocked well into fall and winter. This ever-stylish look works just as well on the red carpet as it does on an outing to brunch. And while getting the perfectly loose curl can be daunting, with the right tricks it can be oh so simple! Grab your curling iron and Mighty Hair Spray and start styling!
