Easy Summer Hairstyles Ideas
1. Mist your whole head with a light texturizing spray (we like Ouai Texturizing Hair Spray) to give your hair a little bit of hold. If you’re starting with second- or third-day hair, you can skip this step.
2. Section your hair into two horizontal sections, one above the ears and one below. You’ll start with the one on top.
3. Split the top section in half and tie the two halves together in a classic knot.
4. Now break the bottom section in half and combine each side with one of the ends of the knot you just created.
5. Taking your two new sections, tie one final knot, and wrap an elastic around the base to hold it all in place.
1. Generously coat hair with a strong-hold hair spray, like Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong to smooth down any flyaways and add shine.
2. Create a crisp side part from the front of your head to your crown, then stop, move the part to the middle, and continue all the way down to the nape of your neck.
3. Secure each side into a low ponytail with elastics.
4. Twist each ponytail into a snake then coil them up into a spiral, securing each with a couple of bobby pins.
Double Dutch Braids
1. Anyone with sleek, slippery hair, listen up: Get some texture in there before you even think about braiding. Try spritzing Living Proof Instant Texture Mistfrom roots to ends.
2. Split your hair straight down the middle and tie off one side to get it completely out of the way while you braid.
3. Begin the Dutch braid—which is like a French braid, only you braid under instead of over—right at the front of your head. You’ll know you’ve gotten it right if your braid looks almost inside out.
4. Braid all the way to the nape of your neck, and once all the hair on that side is incorporated, switch to a three-strand braid until you have about two inches of hair left. Then tie it off with an elastic.
5. The second braid can be a bit more tricky. Just take your time and look in a mirror to make sure both braids are even.
6. After both braids are secured, gently pull out the braids starting at the bottom. You’ll quickly see how much bigger they can get, giving you a more dramatic effect.
