Beauty Tip Tuesday: simple do's for summer!

Hot, humid weather makes it difficult to be stylish.  I am constantly searching for hair styles that look chic but are quick and easy.  Here are a few fun do's that my hair stylist taught me how to create for the summer months ahead!  The best part is, the messier the better!  So, don't sweat it.  If I can do them, you can too!!

For natural looking waves:

Apply a volumizing mousse to wet hair.  Weave strands into thick braids and let air dry.  When hair is completely dry, take out the braids and finger comb hair.  Apply an anti-frizz serum to the ends and off you go!  (If you have 5 additional minutes, hit your hair with a blow dryer and use a small barrel curing iron to add a few more structured curls).

For a basic bun:

Pull hair straight back, off your face.  Make two, low, side by side pony tails.  Wrap each one around each other at the base. ( Like a figure 8)  Secure the bun with bobby pins and spritz with a strong holding hair stray. 

For added flare, use fun colored bobbi pins or skinny head bands with both of these looks!
