It's easy to get stuck in a hair rut, resorting back to the same style day in and day out. Summer is all about volume, sexy waves, and natural styles, so break free from your routine and start experimenting!
This smooth style was seen at the Carolina Herrera fall 2011 show. Whether your hair is sleek and straight or wavy and coarse, the pony loop still looks chic. Create a low ponytail, pull hair through in a loop, and wrap the ends around your hair tie. Slick back any flyaways from the front to the crown with a few spritzes of alcohol-free L’Oréal Everstyle Strong Hold Styling Spray for a touchable hold and added shine.
Blogger Elsie has a tutorial on her blog for this gorgeous braided updo, and we promise it’s not too complicated.
Take advantage of your textured, wavy hair from yesterday's braids and forgo washing today. Pull hair your into a high ponytail and twist into a bun. Pin stray strands, but don’t go overboard—the messy, tousled look is super sweet.
Spritz your damp roots with a volumizing spray—we love L’Oréal Everstyle Volume Root Lifting Spray, which provides lift without drying or leaving any residue behind. Blow-dry with a round brush, flipping hair upside down for added oomph. Keep the rest of your hair free from products so your locks don’t get weighed down.
Headbands look cute whether your hair is curly, straight, or worn up or down! We love this Orelia Beaded Bow Alice Band from Asos.
Check out our Beachy Waves tutorial here, and don't forget our secret weapon: L’Oréal Everstyle Curl Activating Mousse, for soft, sexy waves without a drying crunch.
Pump up the volume the same way you did on Thursday, but this time sweep hair to the side, spray with texturizing spray, and simply braid. Secure with a clear elastic.
