The weather’s heating up, Curlfriends! As spring transitions into summer, we’re updating our wardrobes, getting our toes sandal-ready, and of course, making big plans for flawless coifs all season long. Whether planning for a beach getaway, weekend brunch lewks, or everyday effortless style, these timeless hair trends will have you looking hot but oh so very cool this summer.
The classic up-do is a mainstay for an elegant evening out, but it’s also a perfect ‘do for those hot summer days. Sweep hair up into a deliberately messy bun, or take your look from the office to the patio for happy hour with a French twist. Tailored Beauty Everything Butter can help keep frizz at bay, and our Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Control smooths edges for a sleek look. Variations on this look include the half up-do, which leaves some of your hair hanging down for a playful, gorgeous effect.
The Wash and Go
Keep it simple and stylish with a wash and go this summer. The key to a great wash and go is clean, well-moisturized hair (as the name suggests). Start with Tailored Beauty’s Coconut Crème Shampoo, followed by the Coconut Crème Conditioner with Mango Butter. For those who swear by the L.O.C. method (liquid-oil-cream) as part of your regimen, the LOC Package will do wonders to prep your hair for styling. The Perfect Coils Curling Jelly is another great product to have on hand to make sure your curls are poppin’. To reduce frizz, allow your curls to dry with minimal handling. For a little extra volume, try using a diffuser to dry your curls from the roots.
Braids and Twists
Braids and twists can be a lifesaver during the summer months, giving our hair a break from constant styling and keeping our tresses protected as we swim, sweat, and soak up the sun. Even with so many options for protective styles--box braids, goddess braids, cornrows, curly twists, and even faux locs, you still want to keep your natural hair healthy while it’s “put away.” Adding a supplement like Tailored Beauty Hair Vitamins can help encourage growth and retention, while providing essential nutrients your hair needs to stay healthy and strong.
