Summer is all about effortless beauty, and minimalist approach to styling your hair will really help you keep your cool during the warmer months, if only because it'll allow you to cut back on heat styling. Below, you'll find five easy, minimalist hairstyles that are all easy to replicate and can be worn everywhere from a pool party to a wedding. Which one will you try first?
1. Sleek low bun
A tight, low bun is one of the easiest ways to keep your hair up and under control during the summer. It protects a lot of your hair from the sun, keeps the lengths under wraps and away from any humidity in the air, and it looks really chic. The trick is to keep the top and sides as sleek as possible in order to maintain the polished vibe.
After securing the bun, mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, then spritz your hands with some water and smooth down the sides and back for a super sleek finish.
2. Air dried waves
Wavy hair is a summer staple, and the good news is that it's really, really easy to style! You don't need a blow dryer or a curling iron, and you can even let your hair style itself while you sleep with this look!
Spritz slightly damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, then braid it into two pigtails. Leave your hair to dry completely, either overnight or while you go about your morning routine.
3. Easy half-up hair
When you want to keep your hair off your face, but don't want to give up the movement to an updo, try a simple half-up hairstyle. All you have to do is pin back the top layers, using your thumbs to guide the hair back from your temples.
Keep your hair frizz free by applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to your finished look.
4. Half-up twists
For a more detailed half-up hairstyle, try pinning the hair back in two simple twists instead. Secure the twists with a couple of crisscrossed bobby pins and you're good to go.
If you want to do any straightening before creating your half-up look, make sure you protect your strands with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray before picking up your flat iron.
5. Sleek side ponytail
Like a low bun, a sleek side ponytail will keep your hair in check with minimal styling time required. You could even pin it up into a bun if you feel like a change during the day!
A sleek ponytail is the perfect look for dirty hair, just make sure you use some dry shampoo like Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray to absorb any excess oil at the root before styling.
