Get summer ready hair
Summer hair is all about easy, natural sun kissed beauty. Embrace your inner goddess and let your hair down. This summer is all about, loose beachy waves, lots of texture and slightly bleached out ends. We at Studio 229 love these easy, breezy looks and thought we’d share some simple hairstyling techniques and products with you so you can achieve these looks.
This hair color and style above are perfectly modern and soft for this summer. Her already blonde hair is lightened to a soft warm gold just at the bottom giving it a worn, sun bleached look. This is a variation of the balayage hair color that we all know and love. Just ask your stylist for balayage highlights, meaning the highlights are done only at the bottom and usually teased in between the natural hair color and lightened hair color to give it a graduated look with no harsh lines.To style a few curls with a curling iron or wand followed with a texturizing sea salt spray will loosen the curls and keep it natural looking.
We are in love with sea salt spray and for summer it is perfect for giving that easy beach texture and reviving soft waves. This sea salt spray by Label m. is our absolute favorite. It’s not sticky but gives great, ragged texture and smells faintly of ocean water and spearmint. It also protects against UV rays. It retails for 23.90 here at the salon.
If you have straight hair you can also spray a little sea salt spray just to give the ends texture.
A little backcombing and even more sea salt spray will give you this ragged look that is so uber in this summer. So boho! So chic!
Another great style for summer are braids. This above braiding is done by grabbing small pieces of hair along the hairline while braiding, to keep the braid close to the crown of the head. The braids can be sloppy, remember it’s all about texture. Finish with sea salt spray and hit the beach!
Happy Summer from the staff at Studio 229!
