As the summer months approach us, the weather gets hotter and so do the hairstyles. Finding a happy medium between trendy and practical can be a challenge, but thankfully the fashion gurus have incorporated heat friendly styles into their summer 2014 looks. Below are four of Glamour Magazine’s easy styles to complete your summer look.
This look is versatile and easy. Wear it casual, or glam it up with a few simple steps for an easy day-to-night hair-do. Start by wrapping a piece of the ponytail around the exposed elastic, then use a bobby pin to secure it in place. Need some inspiration?

No heat required! Give your tresses a break from the heat of blow-drying and flat irons this summer, and instead opt to wear them in natural waves! If your hair is naturally straight, make use of products to achieve that summer beach-side look. Try: Aussie Aussome Volume Texturizing Gel, or Alba Botanica’s Soft Hold Cream for a softer look.
Long & Straight
For the girls who can’t get those curls to stick, don’t fret! The sleek look is in, so show off those long, silky locks. Change up your look with this simple, quick tip: change the way you part your hair. Believe it or not, a simple part can make a world of difference! For the girls who need a little help taming their tresses for a sleek, straight look, try Giovanni Cosmetics’ Straight Fast! Hair Straightening Elixir.
The possibilities are endless! Forget simple braids and the dreaded milk maiden look, modern braids are making a splash on the runways. There are countless ways to make them flattering. Fishtail braids are best worn over the shoulder while French braids can double as “head bands” to hold back your hair or even work into an elegant up-do. Play with the style! You can change your hairstyle every day of the week by incorporating braids, and without a single trip to the salon.
