Easy Breezy Hair Styles- Get Ready for Summer

Folawn’s #3 Get Ready for Summer Idea

1. Tousled style is sexy year-round, and now you have the warm, humid air to help enhance your natural texture. To get the look, divide damp hair into three sections and loosely braid each. Unravel your locks when they’re dry, then set your waves with a texturizing spray.

2. Not only does a braid look chic for summer it also keeps your hair contained tightly from harsh rays from the sun. Shampoo & condition and add a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen to protect the hair from the sun’s harsh rays. Fasten with a snag free elastic band. An extra bonus: your hair will look fabulous for the party after the sun goes down. Take the braid out and shake your hair. Beautiful, instant waves without the fuss.

3.Everybody loves—and loves to wear—ponytails (unless you’ve got a cute pixie cut, of course). But we bet you didn’t realize how many different versions of this classic style are out there. Here is a sweet and laid-back rocking this low pony with natural texture.

At-Home Tip: You don’t want your part to be too perfect. Let you hair fall somewhat along the center and then pull it back.

Pixie cuts are the perfect no fuss, no muss ‘do.

The perfect no fuss…

In the homestretch of summer, chlorine-soaked, sun-fried locks can start looking less than lustrous. (At a certain point, that “tousled beach waves” look you’re going for just turns to tangles.) Aveda’s Damage Remedy Leave in Conditioner  is a between-trims fix for limp hair that’s been battered by whether or overzealous heat styling.  Work it through wet hair before blow-drying or smooth a dab over dried-out ends after styling; either way, the conditioner reconstructs and boosts moisture without leaving strands feeling sticky.

Easy Hair Ideas for Summer

Whether you’re going for a sexy beachy style or you just want your hair off your neck because it’s so freaking hot, there’s a new runway trend for you. Follow these easy ideas to find your best summer hair ever.

By Allures beauty expert  Julie Giusti


The scoop: Apply mousse to your roots, then comb it through to the ends. Create a clean center part, pull all your hair back into a low ponytail, and secure it with an elastic. Add some polish by running a flatiron over the ends and adorn the base with a dramatic hair accessory (feathers and pearls are hot right now).


The scoop: To create these flouncy updos.After the hair is dry,  make a deep side part before loosely pulling the hair back into alow ponytail. He then rolled the tail up (not under) into a loop that he secured with a few pins. Don’t stress if it doesn’t look perfect—it’s not supposed to. “We wanted the hair to get a little messed up when they were putting on their clothes to give the style even more texture,


The scoop:These make a polished alternative to sloppy ponytails but keep you just as cool. He parted the models’ hair on the side—”not too low or harsh,” he said. Gathering it at the nape of the neck, heanchored it into a low ponytail, which he folded over and retied with an elastic, creating a side loop. The finishing touch?  spritz a fluffy kabuki makeup brush with hair spray and glided it over flyaways. “Think of it as setting powder for your hair,”


The scoop:  Part your hair down the center and tie it into a high ponytail. Tease the tail to make it big and thick, twist it, then wrap it around the base until you’ve created a perfectly rounded and oversize bun. Then secure it with pins and finish with a strong-hold hair spray.


The scoop:, Drew a deep side part, and twisted small sections into coils, clamping down on them with a flatiron for crimped texture. After securing the hair into a low ponytail, Split the hair into two sections and tied a double knot at the back of the head, and using a few pins to keep it secure. A chunky piece was left loose in the front of each model’s style; the sections haphazardly fell into the models’ faces as they walked down the runway.

Summer is already here, and the warm weather is opening some space for the new trends. Here is a list of the most interesting trends in makeup and hair that are embraced by the Hollywood stars.

The Best Haircuts for Spring!

After season upon season seeing long, wavy, lustrous locks in every fashion corner you looked, this spring, short haircuts are finally making a comeback. From runway and magazine models to stylish girls on the street and leading ladies (even women we thought would never shed their long hair—we’re looking at you Jen Aniston!), everyone seems to be chopping it all off—into bobs, pixie cuts, and even super-daring spiky ’80s styles. We enlisted celebrity hair stylists Tracey Cunningham (she’s worked on Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, and Gwyneth Paltrow) and Danny Rishoff (he’s cut the hair of Emma Roberts, Emma Stone, and several Victoria’s Secret models) to tell us about the most desired and talked about ‘dos of the season, how to get them, and who can pull them off.

The cut: Long bob
Who has it: Jennifer Aniston
How to get it: The key to this edgy look is keeping the front pieces longer than the back. The ends should be one length though, because as Cunningham says, “This is not like the ‘Rachel.’” Since Aniston is known so much for her color as well, you might want very fine, natural highlights.
Why it works: “Jennifer has had long hair for so long, and it’s such a big change for her. It’s refreshing,” says Cunningham. “So many people follow what she does that it kind of makes everyone think, ‘oh my God! Let’s do something different!’ It’s great that she changed it up. Even someone like Brooklyn Decker—they’re friends now from the movie ‘Go With It’—and I feel like Jen inspired her [to cut her hair] too.” Cunningham says anyone with straight hair can pull off this look and adjust your part to accommodate your face. If you have curly or wavy hair you may need a straightening treatment since those clean, sharp lines are crucial to the style. You can emphasize ends by applying a little grooming cream or hair serum.
Maintenance: While this is a longer bob, Rishoff says you don’t want it to grow out too much, because it will lose all of its shape. “Any haircut that falls around the collarbone area you’ll want to cut about every six weeks,” he says.

The cut: Shattered bob
Who has it: Scarlett Johansson
How to get it: This feminine style involves layers and textured ends. Ask for a shattered bob, bring in photos, and settle on a length that works for you.
Why it works: “I think it’s a great change for Scarlett and nice for the spring,” says Cunningham. Johansson was known for her long layers, but short ones are equally sexy, and can be flattering on anyone. “You have to have some dimension so this would be a great haircut for someone who already has wavy hair,” she says. If your hair is wavy air-drying is the way to go, but you can use a texturizing spray and a blowdryer to pump it up. If you’re curling hair, just focus on the middle of your strands down, leaving the ends out for an undone look.
Maintenance: Cunningham says the great thing about wavy hair and this style in particular, is that roots aren’t pin straight so your color upkeep won’t be as bad. Rishoff says to cut hair every six weeks to keep ends crisp and healthy.

The cut: Pixie
Who has it: Halle Berry
How to get it: Rishoff says to bring your courage and a photo into the salon and ask for a choppy pixie with a little extra length on top.
Why it works: “I mean honestly, I don’t want to spell it out for you, but you have to be drop dead gorgeous,” says Cunningham. “It’s such a great look, but you really have to be striking.” Berry looked pretty with long hair in recent years, but she really owns this haircut. With all your hair out of your face, you’ll need to rock this look, loud and proud. Another important tip: keep short hair all one color to avoid the leopard-spotted look when your roots grow in. Frequent washes and maybe a little styling balm on the ends is all you need for day-to-day grooming.
Maintenance: Rishoff says you’ll need trims “all the time,” which is why this works for a celebrity like Berry who has on-call stylists.

The cut: Messy crop
Who has it: Brooklyn Decker
How to get it: This style is short with many layers. Discuss a good base length with your stylist that will flatter your face and that you’ll feel comfortable with, and go from there, adding some short pieces up front that can act as a bang.
Why it works: “She’s a supermodel and can do whatever she wants, but lots of women are doing the same thing,” says Cunningham. “Without a doubt in my mind, women will be cutting off their hair this season. She’s probably going to grow it out, but it’s almost like a rite of passage sometimes. Maybe you’re going through something and you need to cut it all off.” Ahem, Emma Watson. Cunningham says the best candidates for this style are ladies with fine hair, because it makes it look a little thicker and creates more volume. Depending on your mood you can air dry hair or style it by using a texturizing spray and blowdrying using your fingers.
Maintenance: With hair this length, Rishoff says you’ll need trims every six weeks or less, but Cunningham says the shaggier style means you can go a little longer between color touch-ups.

The cut: Layered bob
Who has it: Jessica Alba
How to get it: If you’re going short and want something less dramatic, ask for a few long layers to be added in to your bob, including a few to frame your face.
Why it works: Cunningham says this is a great switch-up from long hair that lies limp, and that Alba still looks hot. She also points out that short hair does not have to be boring. “Highlights soften up the look and can give it more dimension,” says Cunningham. Add some coppery highlights like Alba, or whatever color most flatters your ‘do. If it gets too light she says your stylist can easily apply a gloss over your hair to bring the color down. A little shine spray amps up the look.
Maintenance: Since this is less blunt than the long bob it will grow out more naturally, but a trim every six weeks will keep hair looking fresh.

The cut: Precision haircut
Who has it: Kate Winslet
How to get it: Rishoff says to make sure your stylist leaves hair long on top and in the front to receive this Vidal Sassoon-inspired look. Color wise, Cunningham says this is “way too extreme for an average person to keep up. Stick with your natural color, or add some highlights.”
Why it works: “It’s a pretty drastic change for someone who has longer hair,” says Rishoff. “This is a nice haircut because the bangs are long enough that you have styling options. You can wear it back or swooped like a long side bang. It’s not like Halle Berry’s hair where it can really only be worn one way.” To get that volume on top, apply some mousse on wet hair before blow drying. Cunningham notes that this may not be the most versatile look for Winslet in terms of roles, so make sure if you have any big events coming up that your haircut will suit your needs.
Maintenance: Rishoff says if the back of your hair is short and really graduated you’ll need a cut every four to six weeks, but if it’s a little shaggier in the back and sides that you could go a little longer.

Listen Up Men! We Look at Your Hair Too

Men always have such direct and strong opinions as to what they would like their significant others hair to look like.  As a stylist i see how important this is to wives, fiances and girlfriends everyday.  Well you know what guys? We have our opinions too!  Here’s a few things to consider for your beu’s next do. 

1.  Put down the clippers and slowly step away! The days of military cuts are over and out (unless your shaving it off like David Beckham).  Its understandable if you like a close, clean cut look but even that doesnt require those clippers.  Try going for a more natural look and request shears over comb on your next appointment.  Ed Westwick does the sophisticated look wonderfully! Polished while maintaining a great stlye. 

2. A little length on men is awesome as well, for some men it helps to even out their profile. The problem is that most men wont put in as much effort to style so it starts to look messy (not in a good way). So hear this, good products will make a world of a difference. Best of all, they are not difficult to apply at all! Run a grooming clay or cream through your palms and brush throughout the whole head to keep control of those long cuts… We like to run our hands through your hair too fellas! James Franco is my common day James Dean and this look is hot on him!

3. Lastly, its okay to be overly stylish men. You might not maintain a look like this for long but have fun with it and see how much you like it. Zac Efrons latest style is more grown up but still has that funky look. Clean cut, long and stylish all in one. Oh, and this look definitely requires some products too!


Out with the old and in with the new fellas! Remember we’re looking too!

Growing Out Those Annoying Bangs?

Okay ladies we’ve all dealt with this before and its okay! You decide its time for a change but nothing too permanent, what do you do? Run to your stylist, the shop down the street, or even your kitchen to grab those shears and give yourself some fun new bangs! Its fun and exciting….. for about three weeks then your ready to grow them out. This is the miserable part, lucky for you we’re here to ease the pain. Here, a few tips on how to style and manage your bangs until they’re past that annoying phase.

1.) The first method is to camoflouge, a great way to do this is with a little creativity and some bobby pins. Try sectioning off your fringe and braiding it across your hairline like a headband. If your not great at braiding you can twist it in the same manner and pin it down with some hidden pins like Jennifer Aniston. Twisting your locks is not a tough task but if your really style challenged simply sweep it off to the side, use a strong spray (Aveda’s Control Force is great) and again secure with a bobby pin. This will keep your hair out of your eyes and still allow you to rock a super cute style!

2.) Ask your stlyist to shape and texturize! Many times we’re so anxious to get the length back that we just let them grow out with no regard to how bulky they might look. Reshaping the bang area at an angle and adding some texture will allow them to sweep across more fluidly. Vanessa Hudgnes does a great job with making this look soft and natural.

3.) Who says a ponytail cant be stylish?! Use hairspray and a teasing comb to create some volume in the fringe. Lightly sweep your hair back and tie a low ponytail, or even off to one side for a more flirty look. Keep it messy as if you effortlessly pulled it back like Ms. Hudgens or polish it a little more like Jessica Alba.

I say it all the time and i’ll say it again… PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! So play with these ideas and you can continue experimenting with different looks minus the fear of the grow out process! Enjoy
