The masks are off and the pools are open! After a year of cutting your own bangs and being nervous about stepping foot in a salon, it is now safe to say that the world is creeping back to normal. And for many people who have been without their beauty routines for over a year, this is great news! Time to get some professional cuts, coloring, and pampering to go along with the summer sun.
Bangs are hotter than ever this summer. Curtain bangs are one of this summer’s best looks, and they are very easy to style. Blow dry your hair with a round brush like this one, away from your face. Make sure the brush goes all the way through so it feathers the bangs out. This face-framing look will enhance any face shape, so you’re good to go.
Full, blunt bangs are also a popular style this summer. Blow these bangs in a downwards motion and keep them straight with a comb. Using the Nano Lite Pro Hair Dryer will help you lock in moisture and also reduce your drying time by 50%.
The bob has been around forever, but this summer there are two exceptional ways to play it. With minimal layers and no angling, the box bob is perfect for summer, especially if you have fine hair. A volumizing product like this full volume mousse would be great here, especially to buoy finer strands.
The asymmetric bob is all about choice, and you can play this any way you want to. Highlight the two very different lengths or textures by using this blow out serum which will help your hair to appear fuller and thicker while also adding shine.
During the dry summer months, you need to be extra focused on nourishing your hair. The ionic technology of Neo’Bond promotes hair health, no matter which way you choose to style it. This Bio-Shield technology protects your hair from any chemical treatments you might undertake, as well as keeps it nourished during the dry heat of the summer. Although you need to get steps 1 and 2 from your favorite local hair salon, the step 3 treatment will nourish your hair long after you are home.
Color is big this summer. After months living behind closed doors in quarantine, “go big or stay home” is the summer’s new mantra. Whether you are in the mood for a more natural shade of red to pump up your color, or pink or baby blue highlights, now is the time. Chunky highlights are also making a comeback, so you have a lot of options to put a pop of color in your life. Neo’Bond should be your go-to conditioner if you are getting any chemical services, because it will prevent damage and fortify existing bonds.
If you want to rock a style that has summer written all over it, play with a short pixie cut. There are so many ways to style it! Blow dry bangs to the side with this handle-less blow dryer, which gives you ultimate control and cuts the drying time, and use lots of volumizing products, like this root lift spray. With more volume, you can create a tousled look with your pixie cut that will be ready for any adventure that summer throws your way!
Try a curly shag if you want to make the most of your amazing curls. With layers and full bangs, this look will put you in the spotlight! A medium length modern shag is also a keeper for this summer. The modern shag is a take on the mullet style made popular by Miley Cyrus. Wear it in loose waves to get the full summer effect. This titanium curler will lock in negative ions and keep your hair happy and hydrated in the summer heat.
No matter which new look you choose for this summer, relish the fact that you are able to be out and enjoying the world. Whether a pop of color, some blunt new bangs, or a throwback shag, going all-in to create a new hairstyle will help you make the most of the summer season.
