Summer Hair Trends

It’s Memorial Day Weekend and the unofficial start of SUMMER! Oh yeah baby! I am so over cold weather and this past winter’s polar vortex. Now that the warmer weather is here, it’s time to take a look at Summer Hair Trends 2014. Taking a look at what was stomping down the runways for Spring/Summer 2014 we saw a myriad of looks. In conjunction with what was seen during FW, The Makeup Examiner reached out to Celebrity Stylist Sarah Potempa and asked her to weigh in on what’s hot. So, what hairstyles are truly sizzling for summer? Read on to find out!

Accessorize - SS14 is the season to get creative with your hair accessories. From floral garlands to pretty headbands and scarves, make a bad hair day into a good one by adding something special.

Beach Waves – Seen at Versace and Marc by Marc Jacobs - Definitely a big trend for summer, this laid back look is easy to do and the more randomly placed the waves are, the better. For the lazy ladies, creating this look is as easy braiding slightly damp hair (two large braids - one on each side) before you hop into bed. For those with medium and shorter lengths, you can still achieve these soft, face-framing waves. Apply a minimal amount of leave-in conditioner like Marco Anti-Frizz Leave-In Conditioner ($35) and invest in Remington’s T|Studio Silk Ceramic Multistyler ($34.99) that comes with a Curl Guide sleeve for the perfect beach waves. Keep locks looking lovely with a spritz of Shu Uemura Texture Wave ($28).

Low Ponytail – Seen at Altuzarra, Lanvin, Jason Wu - Summer is always amazing, but sometimes the humidity brings bad hair days. An easy solution is the simple, chic Low Ponytail. It’s as easy as securing the ponytail at the nape of your neck and the look can be versatile. Opt for a super sleek look that can be achieved with a high gloss finishing spray like Sexy Hair 450 Headset ($18) or a casual, whimsical look that is achieved by gently moving the ponytail from right to left before securing at the nape of your neck.

Tip For Blondes: Remove brassy tones from blonde with Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Color Lustre ($58).

Sarah’s Picks:

Polished Waves – This is a look that celebrities are always requesting. And a simple, chic wave is definitely in style this summer. To get the look, prep your hair with a great deep conditioner, like Aussie 3Minute Miracle Shine ($5.99). The added moisture and shine is perfect to counter the extreme heat and all the salt and chlorine your hair will be exposed to this summer. The concept behind a simple wave is that the curls always wrap away from your face to open it up and look effortless. After you curl your hair, spray Aussie Mega flexible hairspray to a boar bristle/nylon brush to smooth the curls into waves.

Braided Bun – Pull your hair into a high ponytail. Separate out a section, create a 3-strand braid and secure it with a clear elastic. Smooth the rest of the ponytail with Aussie Miraculously Smooth Anti-Frizz Cream and roll it up into a bun with the Wrap Up ($12). Then take the braid and wrap it around the bun for a cool summer style.

Half-Up Top Knot – This is a super cute summer style that works with your waves, but keeps you cool! Take your hair and pull half of it up with the Half-Up bun tool. Spray Aussie Sprunch hairspray to add texture to the waves.
