“Fall” in Love With These Endless Summer Hairstyles

24 Aug

The countdown to Labor Day has begun, and with it the need to upgrade just about everything but our hair. Sure, sandals may be out and skinny jeans may be in again, but when it comes to great beauty looks, it’s like summer never left us. In fact, those cute braids and effortless waves fit right into our busy pre-Fashion Week preparations. After all, who has time for a complex coif when models must be booked, invitations must be sent out and oodles and oodles of hours must be dedicated to finding that perfect outfit for the Lincoln Center tents that’s guaranteed to make the street style photogs take pause.

The key it to find a hairstyle that works with your length, level of activity and hair texture. And while some of us will take the easy way out and don a fedora to deal with our fall bad hair days (guilty as charged), WE say try to be brave and experiment with one of these chic alternatives.

 

For Day: The Fishtail Crown

A long-time favorite with the fashion crowd, this braid comes is many variations that work with multiple hair types. We prefer this half-pulled up look since it cuts down on style time early in the morning. Bonus: This braid works best on slightly dirty (i.e. no need to schedule a blow out) hair.

 

Perfect Product Accessory: Get a sleek and polished look for the office with the help of Kiehl’s with Silk grooming aid.

For Night: The Beachy Bob

For those of us blessed (and we use that term loosely) with curly or wavy hair, the idea of loose, beachy curls  is easily accomplished with a little mouse or gel. But if your locks insist on following the straight and narrow, it’s time to break out a new curling iron or switch it up with some stellar texturizing sprays.

Perfect Product Accessory: Looking for a modern twist? Try out the Conair Infinit Pro “Your Curl” Tourmaline Cermaic Curling Iron. Simply wrap your hair around it and hold/spray into place for a sexy come-hither “I’m the ultimate beach goddess on date night” style. 

 

For Weekends: The Corset Top Knot

We all like to play with new looks, so if you want to try something that might be a bit more complicated, save it for Sunday brunch. Our favorite fusion look  of the moment is the top knot+ reverse french braid combo. Best for thick hair that’s all one length, this might take a little practice, a few bobbi pins AND some patience to perfect.

Perfect Product Accessory: With metallic accents dominating the fashion landscape this fall, why not switch out the arm candy for something a bit more edgy? We ADORE UK jewelry designer Kelly McCallister’s studded top knot bands and think they add a punk element minus the pink mohawk.

Bottom line: Summer may be on its way out the door, but that doesn’t mean your hair has to look out of season OR out of place.
