hydrated hair in summer

Just because winter is over, doesn’t mean you’re free from dry hair. Sun, salt, chlorine and almost all outdoor water activities can take a hit on your locks. Too much sun exposure to your hair can leave it dull, susceptible to breakage and even cause some funky color changes. But there is a solution, and it’s not staying inside all day and missing out on the roof top pools parties. With the right great-ingredient packed products you can restore and maintain moisture and balance in your hair all the way through September. Ready for some amazing summer locks?

color block

This bob’s bright splashes of color nod to its sixties influence when bold color blocked dresses and geometric haircuts were the hallmarks of trendy mod fashion. Short round fringe, piecey internal texture and asymmetry give the style a contemporary twist. The bright pops of color are anchored in a natural dark blonde base for a bold, but wearable look.

red hair in sun

I love great hair color; nothing changes your look and your mood as quick. But color fades. Blondes get dull, brunettes get mousy, and the worst happens to redheads. Not only can red fade, but when it does, it can end up looking like an orange or pinky hue. And the cotton candy look is only cute when it’s on purpose. Using a great shampoo will only get your so far, red-haired ladies. You’ll also need a few tips and tricks and get you through the sunny season. Click through to style notes to learn how to keep your red fiery all summer long. –– Michelle Rotbart
