Maybe it’s a happy by-product of the humidity and heat or perhaps a side-effect of daily immersion in all things beauty and spa, but I’ve been tinkering with creative hairstyles this summer. I’m definitely not alone, and salon owner and expert stylist Nunzio Saviano has some celebrity-inspired tips for you and your clients to beat the heat in style.
- Ombré Waves—Take a cue from Chrissy Teigen on this one. Her ombré coloring is super-natural, warm and subtle. As the weather starts to warm up, this easy, low maintenance look pairs perfectly with beachy waves and the carefree days of summer. Avoid daily washings in the summertime to preserve color and hair health. Wear a hat and bring conditioner to the beach for further protection.
- Slicked Back—For summer, an easy, go-to look should be chic and simple. Kate Bosworth’s red carpet style is the perfect inspiration for a no-fuss look that will seamlessly transition from beach to evening while fighting humidity and frizz. Nunzio recommends using a blow dryer and volumizing spray to achieve a similar look. Brush damp hair back and away from face. Run a texturizing cream throughout hair to provide moisture and moveable hold. Apply hairspray onto fingertips and apply just to fly-aways.
- Retro Curls—This look is versatile and dependent on the headband, which makes a fun, flirty statement. It can be dressed down or dressed up depending on your mood. Mimick this look by using a root-uplifting gel. Blow-dry hair upside down to create even more volume. Separate hair into 2-inch sections, using a round brush to dry. Lightly tease the crown and place the headband on. Set the style in place with hairspray for the perfect finish.
