Beach hair is ubiquitous when it comes to the summer, but there is suddenly a cool new style emerging on runway and among it girls which could start to dominate the hot season. I’m referring to the slick and sleek look I’ve been seeing on it-gals like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. It’s definitely a fashion girl look but is just as summer-worthy. The style is both high-end and sexy and is the perfect look for a special occasion, especially for an outdoor venue where you will want your hair out of your face. Only time will tell if this look does become the staple of the summer, but in the mean time click through to style notes to learn how to wear it. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

When it comes to light brown and dark blonde shades, anything but ashy tones are usually considered undesirable, and with good reason. Warm shades at these levels are often orangish and brassy, but the best solution isn’t always to go for charcoal and silver tones. Cool colors aren’t flattering on a lot of people, especially in the summer when skin tone tends to be a bit more pigmented. A soft neutral-warm tone like the one pictured above is the perfect solution. The soft golden-khaki hue feels luxurious and soft, and warm but not in the least bit brassy.
