As it continues to get warmer, it will be time to put down the wands and the flatirons and opt for heat-free styling. The hair pros behind Michael Kors’ Fall ’15 show agree. According to style.com, the beauty team told models to “go to bed with clean hair and damp so you get that strange wave, lift in weird parts, and wrinkles in hair.” The look was inspired by Carolyn Bessette- Kennedy, who was always polished but never put a brush to her head. I love that the team understands the power of some beauty sleep and of course this is a super easy look to emulate. Will you be trying this look on?

So we’ve all been told that air-dried hair is the new blowout, that we should pack up our curling irons and throw out our hairdryers and go au natural (at least as far as our hair is concerned). This sounds fine if you have a piecey bob or long, loose layers, but what if you have bangs? Bangs are a whole other story. For those of us with fringe, giving up heat styling is a bit more challenging. We have to deal with hairline cowlicks, forehead grease, sweat. Can we do it without heat? Totally.

Summer can be harsh on your hair; the constant sun, salt water, chlorine are all factors that can lead to damage. Believe it or not, it’s nothing compared to winter. The low humidity conditions makes the hair fragile and prone to breakage. So, when you heat style in winter, you are virtually guaranteeing damage. Learning how to make hair look better when air-drying will help you break away from constant heat styling, and it will also prepare you for frizz free summer tresses.
