Hooray, sunny days are finally here! Well, what better time than this to try an array of super-cool, flirtatious hairstyles? However, since this is the season when time is usually against us, we should find some quick summer hair fixes for hectic mornings and nights. If you’re the busy type of girl who’s always on the run, check out this easy, DIY styles that you can achieve in seconds and still look gorgeous. Keep it simple yet classy and playful and get ready to win the spotlight!
Go for loose waves as spotted at Sonia Rykiel in order to get a retro-inspired look that will definitely turn all eyes on you. The best thing is that you only need a curling iron to create some soft curls and a barrette to add a sophisticated vibe, perfect for special occasions. On the other hand, you can also opt for messy, effortless side-swept locks as seen at Jill Stuart or a hippie style as spotted at Just Cavalli. If you are more confident and daring, you can easily try a slicked style! This works great even on shorter hair and chic bobs (Ohne Titel).
When speaking about quick hair fixes one cannot omit the already timeless ponytail, a versatile choice that works great for casual, daytime looks but also for night events. This summer, keep it clean and impeccable as seen at Derek Lam. Make a side parting and apply some hold spray for a severe result! Another hairstyle that became extremely popular during the last seasons is the messy side braid (ASHISH). Start by pulling hair loosely over one shoulder, plait and secure it with an elastic band. Apply some hair spray!
Oh la la! If there is one ‘do that will never go out of style, that is the classic chignon. It can be worn in so many different ways, whether you choose the sleek, high and tight style as seen at Stella McCartney or the preciously adorned one spotted at Louis Vuitton. A bun is the best solution for bad hair days and it takes five minutes to do it. Both laid-back and glam, a chignon is one of the best hair fixes for on-the-go girls! Use your fingers to rake the hair back and apply some serum or hold spray to keep your ‘do in place.
Did you say quick summer hair fixes? Well, as we have seen, accessories play a major part when it comes to statement-making appearances. Nowadays, we can use a look-at-me-now adornment to add awesomeness to simple buns, ponytails or loose tresses. This season, have fun and try playful styles getting wow-worthy effects! Moreover, remember that a headband or a turban can add drama to a simple, dull outfit (Hermès, Luca Luca, Kevork Kiledjian, Karen Walker).
Hair cover-ups are indeed a smart way to protect our head from harmful sun rays without sacrificing our style. Head wrap? Of course! It is sexy, bold, feminine and oh-so-risky! All you need is a scarf folded into a triangle and then looped twice around the head. For a simpler approach, just fold the scarf into a triangle and keep folding until you obtain a ticker headband. Next, wrap front to back and back to front, double knot and tuck the ends. Easy and utterly chic!
