Here’s your summer hair quick fix

14 Jul

When it’s hot you don’t want to do much. We completely understand that. You need hair solutions that can be done speedily, that can still have the maximum impact, but with the minimum input needed.

At Dream Girl, we’re all about helping you to be your gorgeous and glamorous best. So if you’ve spent too many mornings in front of your mirror, stuck for hair-inspiration on another warm summer’s day, here’s our advice.

A simple twist

Having long and beautiful hair might be one of your favourite things, but there are times in the hot summer months when you need to tie it back. Even if you wear hair extensions, you might find your scalp and neck can get hot and sweaty when the weather is muggy.

A simple twist is the best way to do it. Just gather your hair at the nape of your neck like you’re going to style a ponytail. Then begin to twist until you get to the ends. Tuck them underneath and pin your hair in place.

The best thing about this style is that if you wear it in place all day, uncurl it in the evening and you have beautiful summer waves.

Switch up your parting

When you need a change and want to freshen up your look, there’s nothing simpler than to try a new parting. Go from side to middle, or swap sides and it’ll change how your face looks.

You can even change your makeup to go with it. If you’ve got a side swept look, focus on the lips as it’ll draw the eyes down and elongate your face. A middle parting is the perfect excuse to focus on the eyes. Try a liquid eyeliner for a long sweep to put all the attention on your peepers.

A braided headband

The perfect style for those long lazy nights, or party days at a festival. You can easily weave it into your every day style as well.

Braid your own locks, starting with a section just behind your ear and pin it in place around an inch from your hairline.

If you haven’t quite for the locks to cover it, use a ponytail hair extension. Clip in place or tie underneath your own locks to hide the join, braid it and then pin in place across your own natural hair.

Slick it back

Creating an edgy style, but one we’re seeing more and more, the slicked back style is perfect for a hot summer day. Hair extensions will help to add a little extra length or volume if you need it. These style can look slicked, but not flat! Use gel or serum, combing it through your hair so you look like you’re straight off the catwalk.
