Summer hairstyles can be a nightmare! Between the humidity that makes our hair larger than life itself, and the not so cute messy bun that we scrape back in a sweaty shamble; it can be hard to control our locks in the heat. But with our vegan hair products, there are ways to look the chicest you ever have done without having to worry about the heat. Dah-ling, with our suggestions & our products, you will be runaway ready for whatever you’re doing, especially this Labor Day.
We’ve rounded up 2021’s best summer hairstyles that are heatwave and Labor Day approved. Here’s N4’s seasonal showdown to sign off this summer.
Think indie tween meets Fendi style. These fun but stylish and cute buns will keep your hair off your neck and face without looking like you’ve only just got out of bed.
Start by evenly distributing one of our best-selling vegan hair products, N4’s Firm Hold Gel, through damp hair, and blow/air dry as desired. Starting with this step will help to protect your hair against the humidity while achieving style, body, control and shine (plus a firm hold!).
Split your hair into two with a middle parting, and put it up into two pigtails that will sit either side of your head. You can backcomb your pigtails to give them a little more volume, which is a good idea if your hair is quite thin. Twist each side and wrap it round creating a bun, and secure with bobby pins.
For a stylish day-to-night transformation, keep half of your hair down and have two cute space buns on top of your head.
Sleek scarf weaving
Looking for a delicate yet trendy look? This simplistic style will take you to any event day-to-night, and keep your hair back and away from your face.
To begin, add N4’s Smoothing Balm to your damp hair and blow/air dry as desired. This will tackle your frizzy and unruly locks, and reshape it so it’s soft and easy to style. Vegan hair products like these will also help you achieve the sleek plait and keep your frustrating flyaways down.
Grab your favourite silky hair scarf (we recommend a printed one), and put your hair in a low sleek ponytail. Wrap the scarf around this hair tie to hide it, and begin to plait, whilst including the scarf in one of the three sections of the weave.
Secure the end with another hair tie and if the scarf is too long you can wrap it around the band to complete the look. All we’re doing is taking the traditional schoolgirl plait and adding a pretty summer twist to it.
Pearls, pearls, pearls
Dah-ling, didn’t you know? Pearls are always in! They’re the chicest touch to an outfit and can add a dressy touch to a very simplistic look.
Find a beautiful pearl headband and push the front of your hair back with it. And that’s all there is to it! You could also opt for a slick back high pony and slide the headband over the top of your hair to keep it smoothed down.
Finish off with N4’s Non Aerosol Hair Spray to keep your hair in place all day without any stiffness.
Loose beach waves
If you’re suffering with the frizz-induced humidity, then why not ditch the sleek look and embrace the natural waves. After all, nothing screams summer more than a beachy-inspired look.
N4’s Sugar Texturizing Spray works like a charm with this style. This can be used on damp or dry hair, but for the beachy look it’s a good idea to flip your hair upside down for the extra volume. You won’t even need to worry about the heat as this product protects your hair from the humidity.
Get sweet beach waves with N4 so you don’t have to rely on the hair-damaging salty sea water to do it for you.
