Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes more fun and relaxed fashion and style. Changing up your style for summer doesn’t mean just trading in your winter coats for light linen dresses—it also means changing your hair and makeup. Here are two of the trendiest hairstyles this season that anyone can pull off, regardless of hair color, texture or style:
Ariana Grande has been sporting this sleek hairstyle for years, but this summer, the ponytail gets higher and longer than ever. You can pull this gravity-defying hairstyle best if you have a lot of long hair, but if you lack the length or thickness, you can easily fake both with the help of hair extensions. Be sure to buy yours from a reputable company like True Glory Hair to get the highest quality extensions at a reasonable price.
You’ll need to choose hair extensions that match the texture and color of your natural hair exactly, to avoid having your hairstyle look obviously fake. True Glory Hair offers a wide variety of lengths and styles, ranging from straight to curly, all made from real Brazilian or Indian virgin hair.
Start by brushing your hair well to get rid of any kinks or tangles. This hairstyle needs to be perfectly smooth and sleek in order to work. Apply a smoothing serum or leave on conditioner to give your hair high shine. Gather your hair up in a high ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Take a small section of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and wrap it around the base of the ponytail to cover the elastic, and to give it a more polished look. Tuck the end under the elastic and finish with a setting spray to keep everything in place.
The long bob or lob is an almost universally flattering hair length, and can be worn in countless different ways to suit many occasions. In the heat and humidity of summer, it’s best worn in loose waves that frame your face and give you a carefree, laidback look. This hairstyle has been seen on numerous celebrities from Khloe Kardashian to Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna, and can give anyone that effortless “cool girl” vibe.
The easiest way to achieve this look is to put your slightly damp hair into two or three huge braids, and to leave them in for a few hours. When you take them out, lightly run a styling cream through your hair with your fingers, and leave your hair to air dry.
For a more polished look, use a loose barrel curling iron to create large waves. Don’t overthink the placement; randomly placed curls will achieve the laidback, “woke up like this look” better than precisely placed ones. Don’t forget to spritz your hair with a heat protectant spray before curling it; you don’t want to end up with dry, frizzy tresses.
Whether you decide to let your hair down or put it up this summer, relax and have fun trying out new styles. Summer is the perfect time to let loose and experiment with different styles and looks you haven’t tried before.
