The best hairstyles tend to be the ones that look fancy, without needing a lot of fancy fuss and fiddling. After all, nobody wants to spend half the summer in front of the mirror when there are music festivals, garden parties, and barbeque lunches to get stuck into. The good news is that there are plenty of these low maintenance looks to go around.
In fact, a lot of styles that you may have shied away from in the past are actually much easier than you think. Some do require a little practice, but once you’ve mastered the techniques, you’ll be whipping out those fierce summer hairstyles in a matter of minutes. And, all of the styles that we’re going to show you today can be enhanced using hair extensions.
So, let’s take a look at some of the fanciest, fuss free ways to wear your hair this summer.
The Stitched Up French Twist
This ‘stitched up’ style exudes elegance and class, but it also has a contemporary edge. Now, the execution is a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but you just need to get used to braiding upwards. Start by teasing your crown to increase the volume on the top. Then, divide your hair into two sections. Twist the right section back and up, but make sure that you pin on the left side of the twist. Repeat with the left section of hair and, alternatively, pin on the right.
The Super Simple Half-Updo
There’s nothing easier than this supermodel favourite; the half updo. The only effort required is to comb the top and side sections of hair. Then, draw them back and secure them with a tie or band. Add a modest slick of hair gel for that wet look vibe, especially if you are heading out to a party. It is a simple touch, but it elevates the style from cute daytime ‘do to a super sexy ‘after dark’ look. Plus, it only takes a minute or two to put together. For extra glam, use clip in hair extensions to up the volume and really turn some heads.
The Lazy Farrah Fawcett
If you prefer to wear your tresses down, so that you can really show off those extensions, try this gorgeous sixties style wave. It’s ideal for the summer, because it’s fun, flirty, and guaranteed to make you smile. Who doesn’t enjoy the satisfying bounce you get when you stride down the street with vital, healthy hair? You can cheat your way to it, with the gentle use of curling irons. On a moderate heat, twist the bottom half of your hair into spirals. The trick is to curl them away from your face, so you get that Farrah Fawcett, Charlie’s Angels flick!
The Uptown Girl
Alternatively, you could opt for a much slicker, sleeker down ‘do. We’re talking full on Victoria Beckham shine and long clip in extensions. This style is particularly well suited to girls with asymmetrical and feathered haircuts, because the layers add extra dimension. If you part your tresses right down the centre, that uneven cut will simply fall right into place. The front sections will frame your features and the back will fan out to make it look like you have a lot more volume and body. We recommend this look, coupled with clip in hair extensions, if your own hair is quite thin.
