If the humidity we were experiencing earlier this month is a foreshadow for the rest of the sunny season, then we’re in for another hot summer. Lucky for wavy, curly and frizzy types, it appears that the sans heat-style shags seen at the Louis Vuitton Resort show, pictured above, are perfect for dealing with humidity. Whether you’re going for a textured fringe or not, whether it’s wave, curl, or bounce that you want, you too can get sexy, lived-in, wash-and-wear nonchalance with a little bit of the right styling products.

face frame layers

Layers can do a lot for your hair: remove weight, add volume, boost waves, and enhance your features. And while not everyone wants more curl or volume, everyone can benefit from a little face framing. This type of layering creates a waterfall of steeply angled strands that curve around your face and neck. The shape works on most hair types, and looks great tousled or sleek, side-swept or center parted. Learn to frame your face in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
