When it comes to frizz-fighting hairstyles, check out our top five ways to wear your hair this summer…
An Ode to Bardot
Channel your inner Brigitte Bardot this season with an effortless, finger-raked updo.
To get the look, wrap random sections around a big curling iron. Be sure to alternate directions with your curls for a modern look. Do some gentle teasing at the crown for height, then grab a chunk of hair on each side. Pull the pieces back, and gently push upward before you pin it hair into place.
Top tip: Your upstyle will remain in place more firmly if you wash it the day before rather than on the day itself.
The Plush Ponytail
Add a spritz of texturising spray to your roots, blow dry, then tease the crown slightly once dried – it’s all about keeping volume in the crown when creating that classic, voluminous ponytail. Smooth the top using either a bristle brush or comb to create a rounder shape.
A quick spritz of hairspray will keep the style in place once you’re happy with the final look.
Top tip: Blow dry your hair upside down to give your hair that extra va-va-voom!
The Messy Top Knot
Cool, undone and easy – the top knot moves into the limelight again this summer. To create the look, toss your hair back and tie it up really high – quite loose and some distance from the scalp.
Top tip: Work in volumising powder and then boost up the top hair with your fingers. No need to be too exact while tying, by the way – it’s all about the messy look.
Best of all? The top-knot visually lengthens the neck, makes you appear taller and creates a slim overall silhouette. Winner!
We’ve seen this ultra-cool look on the Kardashian clan – and it’s the perfect style to battle summer frizz. Braid your locks as tight as you dare, then finish with hairspray to keep the style in place.
Top tip: Plaits and braids are one of the hottest looks around for summer 2016 so if you don’t fancy this look, why not try a chunky single braid, either worn high on your crown, as a low side plait or cascading down your back!
The Embellished Up-Do
Why not add a dash of romance to your hair style this summer, and embellish with some chic accessories?
Top tip: The addition of some strategically placed ornate clips, flowers or even a tiara can cover a multitude of sins. It’s a spontaneous, imperfect way of adding some glamour to your hair.
