If there is ever a time to try out a great new hair trend, it’s during the summer. And since we’re well into the new season, you now have the perfect opportunity to be brighter and bolder in your look. So whether it’s trying a new hair color or embracing your natural hair texture, all of these trends are non-committal and will change up your look instantly. Click through to the notes to learn what you should we rocking all summer long. –– Michelle Rotbart 

Take On The Wet Look

This is the look on the runways and editorials, but you too can wear it! Get double-duty out of the look by using it as rehab for dry and damaged hair after a day at the beach. Simply use conditioner. Start with clean damp hair and work in a few dollops of conditioner from roots to ends. Part hair to the side and comb into a low bun. Wear it all day and rinse out before bed for smooth and soft texture.

Try Out Pastel Hair

You don’t even need to visit your colorist to try out this trend. To play with some candy hues for a night or even two, mist a wash out color spray on select pieces of your strands or try color out on just the ends. For an ombré effect, hold the can closer to your head and then gradually move it away. Brush out for a light tint.

Embrace A Little Frizz

The top models of today are rocking the frizz, and you should too! For natural curls, mist wave mist on damp hair and then scrunch or diffuse with a blow dryer. Once dry, separate out curls with fingers for extra volume.

Rock Bright Hair Accessories

Models at the Max Mara show were rocking multiple bright pins. It’s an easy look that you can emulate and takes only seconds to do. Simply stack your favorite colored pins on one side of your head. Mix and match colors for a playful look.
