There’s nothing worse in ninety degree weather than spending time with your hairdryer. So don’t do it! This season the hottest looks are rough and tumbled, not sleek and coifed. Choppy cuts, rough textures and matte, raw-looking shades give hair rugged sexiness that’s a perfect match for minimal makeup and easy summer style.

On Friday’s E! News, Giuliana debuted her super blonde hair to huge reviews. I am one of the biggest fans of this change. Giuliana, (who is usually brunette) has gone blonde before but nothing that compares to this solid, eye catching tone. Giuliana achieved this light lemony blonde with more highlights than a person can count, however, there is more than one way to get this look. Try one because everyone has to go blonde at least once in their life. Click the notes for tips. –– Kelly Rowe

Over the last month or so I’ve begun to notice hair heading in some new directions. My friends with bobs are growing them longer or wearing them fuller, wind-blown curls seem to be everywhere, and I’ve developed an addiction to dry shampoo. Volume is making a comeback, a big one. As we head into fall, we’re going to be seeing a return of bouncy, flouncy strands. Stay ahead of the trend with this bloused ponytail and expanded chignon.

bobby pins

A beautiful hairstyle doesn’t just happen. There’s usually some framework behind it, and often the base that holds it all together is a bobby pin. It’s the resident go-to of any style toolbox, but it doesn’t always get all the credit it deserves. So we decided to showcase the bobby pin’s value. And we’re doing one better than Mary-Kate (the it-girl is known to have a five bobby pin or less rule); we’re bringing you three summer hairstyles that use three bobby pins or less.
