3 simple steps for great hair in the sunshine
Soft summer waves are an easy way to create a youthful, charming look. To style your hair into simple, casual waves, prepare it with a texturising primer or balm before blow-drying. Blow out your hair with a round brush while twisting out near the ends for soft curls. Finish off by using a flat iron and twist sections of the hair, curling upwards. Make sure most of the curls are focused at the ends for a more relaxed look.
Create a half ‘do for a laidback and casual look that can take you from day to night with ease. After your hair is curled into soft waves, twist sections from above each ear and pin in place around the back of your head. Leave a few curls at the front to frame your face, with the remaining hair cascading down to the nape of your neck. As a final step, set your hair with a quick spritz of hairspray. This is a cool style in itself that you can sport in the sun.
Take your look one step further and create a fairytale-inspired ‘do. Start off again with your soft summer waves, loosely twist your hair into a partial braid on each side of the face and pull it back into a small messy bun, securing with bobby pins at the back of your head. Spray with a bit of hairspray to set the hair after both sides are secured at the back. Twist up the rest of the locks at the bottom of your head into the low bun and secure with more bobby pins. Play around with the pieces of hair around the bun and tease and pull around the area until you’re happy with the texture. A final spritz of hairspray and you’re set!
