Now that the summer is here, it is no surprise that people are ditching the hair dryers and straighteners in favour of more natural hairstyles. Not only is trying to heat style your hair on a hot morning considered by some as pure torture, the heat tends to play havoc with whatever carefully constructed style you have chosen therefore sometimes simple is best. If you are looking for some easy styles that will beat the heat, here are our top tips to summer style.

The Topknot

The topknot is THE style to be seen in this summer with celebrities and fashionistas alike all rocking this super chic style. Brush out hair to remove any knots before flipping your head over and securing your hair in a high ponytail. Twist your hair to create a tight bun and secure with a hair tie, using hair grips to secure any loose pieces and spritz with hairspray to keep it in place.

Make Waves

You don’t have to be heading to the shore to take advantage of beach style waves. Braid your hair the night before and secure with hair grips to ensure that hair does not fall out. Simply remove the braids the next morning and use a salt spray to give your hair that ‘fresh from the surf’ look. Not only does this style look great, it can always be refreshed with an extra spritz if you are looking for an easy night ‘do’.

Fake It

If you do not have the time to style your hair, there is nothing wrong with investing in some key pieces to help you achieve the look you want. Hair extensions are becoming a must have for anyone looking for instant glamour but if you don’t fancy long flowing locks, why not consider a simply wrap around ponytail? Simply place your own hair into the ponytail and use the wrap around feature to disguise the fastening, a classic style in half the time. We love these ponytails from Additional Lengths, available in a range of colours to ensure you can find your perfect match.
