There is so much more to summer hair than the obvious.
Trends and Tips
For most people, summer hair trends make them think of beach waves and sun-kissed hair and an overall effortless look. While these summer hair trends are certainly a good place to start, maintaining their association with the summer season year after year, there is so much more to summer hair than the obvious.
THE WAVY LOB
This textured asymmetric look is equal parts edgy and chic. What a great way to keep your hair off your back when it’s hot out. If you tend to prefer longer hair, the lob is much less daunting than a bob, plus it’s easy to grow out your hair again. However, with a bob, there may be an awkward in-between phase. Simply ask your stylist for layer lob with some face-framing pieces. When it comes to styling, we suggest curling your hair in alternating directions to give you a more tousled look and prevent the curls from merging together.
LONG AND TEXTURED
Not to be confused with beach waves, this “it” summer hairstyle is all about natural movement, rather than discernable, full-bodied curls. To achieve this look ask your stylist for long layers that will wear well when you air dry your hair. Depending on your hair and its natural length, consult with your stylist to see how to obtain this look. Is it possible……? Is our Moroccan Oil Beach Wave Mouse for you? Come in and find out!
POLISHED AND SHINY
Whether you prefer a half-up, half-down-do, a low bun or a loose ponytail at the nape of your neck, summer is the perfect time to crank up the polish. Once you style your hair, all you have to do is add a little extra serum or hair oil to give yourself that luminous shine. Not only will this help hydrate your hair and keep your style looking polished, but it will also help prevent frizz while you’re out and about.
SUMMER HAIR PROBLEM:
DAMAGE FROM COLORING YOUR HAIR LIGHTER
Lightening your hair for the summer months is so tempting. Who doesn’t want that beach glow and sun-kissed brightness to your hair when it’s sunny out? While we do agree that light hair for the summer is great, the chemicals cause your hair to be more prone to damage. As long as you take the right steps to protect your newly colored treated hair from the sun, we say to go for it! Organics O–way (organic way) Lightener at Incentives Spa just may be the solution.
SOLUTION: COLOR PROTECTING HAIR PRODUCTS
If your hair is colored, we recommend going for a shampoo specifically designed for color-treated hair. Check the product’s pH level (consult with your stylist) and ensure that it is between 4.5-5.5 to prevent color from fading. Great hair care products for colored hair will also include ingredients like argan oil to protect hair from damaged. Also, don’t be fooled by the “makeshift wave of the argan oil.” Make sure you’re getting the real deal, like our Moroccanoil Color Complete. It will not disappoint!
