HOT Summer Hair

Summertime entails a lot of what we love....laid back days, easy styles, dress it up or dress it down events and all the fabulous hairstyles you could want to complement each of these moments.  Whether going casual while heading to the beach or glamming it up for your best friend's wedding, these hot summer hair looks are going to be just what you want.

1.  Braided:  Perfect for the sun and sand, a loose side braid is carefree and simple to pull off.  A beautiful benefit of this look?  Those loose and tousled waves you'll get when night falls and you're ready to turn it up a notch.  To get back from the beach waves try:  Bumble and bumble Sea Spray Set, $28.

2.  Pony Up:  Nothing says summertime chic better than a sleek ponytail.  Simple and to the point, this classic look shows off your beautiful features while keeping you cool.  Bonus points - you can work this one everywhere from barre class to date night by simply changing how high or low you go.  Keep your pony full of shine and swing using:  Nexxus Humectress Hydrating Deep Conditioner, $15.

3.  Long and Loose:  Sometimes the moment calls for us to simply let our hair down.  When that is the case, let your natural beauty shine by embracing your hair's texture and style.  Make hair happy and always protect your tresses with a great on-the-go repairing spray:  Rene Furterer No Rinse Moisturizing Spray, After Sun for Dehydrated Hair, $23.

4.  Angled Lob:  This year's of-the-moment cut, the long bob (aka "the lob") is being seen on women everywhere from L.A. to NYC and all the great places in between.  This cut is so fresh and appealing, I've been tempted to give it a try myself.  Easy to wear and simple to style, the lines of this look flatter almost any face shape.  Talk to your stylist to see which length and version work best for you.  No matter your choice, you can keep it looking its best with a fantastic styler:  Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray, $28.

5.  Sleek Bun:  Sophisticated yet simple, this is a favorite style not just in summer but all year round too.  So easy to pull off, a few twists and pins and voila, hair perfection.  Beside being a chic and effortless look, this style also allows you to treat your tresses to a little extra TLC.  Before securing your bun, spray in a nourishing hydrator:  Sally Hershberger Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Spray, $14.
