The last thing I want to think about during the summer months is what to do with my hair. I’d prefer to channel that energy into my drink order….sangria, mai tai or bellini? Summer and natural hair aren’t the best of friends. The heat, the humidity and the frizz can overwhelm which is why I tend to switch up things in the summer. I say bye bye to my wash and gos in the summertime and embrace low maintenance, heat protective and cooler styling options.
As I get ready to embrace every inch of summer, here are some of my favourite stress free hairstyles to combat the summer heat!
Sun’s out, buns out! High on my list of summer styles is a bun. High bun, low bun, sleek bun or messy bun, I just love a good bun. It’s an easy, quick style that can be worn casually during the day time and classy at night. A slick bun is so simple to create, all you need is a good brush, water, gel and some hair ties. If you want to fancy things up, opt to throw in some hair clips, or hair pins.
Summer is officially braid season. If you’re looking for a break for just a few days, or even a few weeks, there’s nothing easier than braiding it all up! My go-to is one to two cornrows straight back because it’s literally the easiest and something I can knock out myself. While on vacation, it’s super convienient because the style can last up to four days once I properly tie my hair down at night. Another braided style that I love and is fuss free but requires a little more help are box braids, with or without hair extensions. If maintained, you’ll have a style that can last for quite some time.
Two-strand twists are yet another convenient hair style that rule the summer months. Like braids, one they’re in, you set it and forget it. Summer 2019 though is all about the infamous passion twists, created by Miamia-based hairstylist Kailyn Rogers. You can’t escape these boho, silky twists that have been invading your social media feeds. While I can simply two-strand twists my natural hair, I’m thinking adding of extensions to ensure the survival of the twists for more than a week! What I love about these twists are the fact that they look so natural and effortless!
