Most women tend to complain of bad hair days during the heat and humidity at the end of Summertime.
Fortunately, Paul Cucinello, Creative Director and Celebrity hairstylist at the swanky Chris Chase Salon in Chelsea, reveals some easy DIY looks that will have women everywhere sporting their best end of summer locks ever!
When In Doubt, Bling It Out!
Not having a good hair day? Not to worry! Get a chic, foolproof hairdo in seconds by using an edgy hair accessory like the chic hair bow shown to the side.
Vintage brooches, headpieces and barrettes have been seen everywhere to add a little dazzle to locks. The more simple the hair style, the more creative and fun your hair accessory can be.
Dare to Bare It All With A Short, Sexy Cut
Have your stylist leave more length on the top and texture on the ends. Use a blow dry crème such as ECRU New York Marine Styling Balm to reduce volume, then run a mini flat iron throughout the length of the top and finish with a pomade such as New York Streets Paste.
Giddy Up With An Equestrian-Inspired Pony
Add glamour to an everyday low ponytail like Lauren Conrad by parting hair on the far left or far right side of the head.
Ponytails paired with a deep side part can be elegant and sleek or causal and flirty, depending on how the ponytail is styled. To create this look, start by running a fine tooth comb in an upward diagonal motion a few inches above the ear.
Where’s the Beach?
To create soft waves with a beachy texture and straight ends like Beyonce’s, first prep damp hair with a foundation mist such as ECRU New York Silk Nourishing Spray.
Loosely French braid or twist hair to the side, working around the hair line. Be sure to leave the crown out and loosely braid the length of the hair leaving the ends out.
Once hair is dry, undo the braids and shake out hair. Finish with a couple of blasts of dry shampoo such as Oribe Dry Volume Spray to give it that perfectly imperfect look.
Go Laidback With a Loose Bun
Use a combination of Oribe Dry Volume Hair Spray and ECRU New York Sunlight Holding Spray to complete the look.
If you want to dress up this laid back look, you can adorn your bun by adding a vintage brooch or a beautiful comb – something with a little bling, but not too over the top.
