Fashion’s two biggest influences for Spring 2013 were the 60’s and the 90’s, which carried over into the relaxed and whimsical hair on the runway. From the ubiquitous braid to sleek, deep side parts, Spring 2013 had something for every length, color, and texture.
Summer is our favorite time of the year filled with outdoor cocktail parties, relaxing days at the beach and backyard BBQs. We want our hair to look its best during this season, but that can be a challenge. Between the sun, humidity and dips in the pool, how is our hair supposed to hold up? No worries…we have you covered! Here are the hottest trends for tresses and the perfect products to help you nix bad hair days and get your locks into tip top shape.

The top knot is our favorite go-to hairstyle for the summer. It looks classic chic and is the ultimate no-fuss style. Whether you like a tight and perfect prima-ballerina knot or you prefer a messier rocker one, there is a look that will suit your own personal style. Tip: asos.com sells a hair donut which can be placed in the hair to achieve the perfect round “donut shape.” It comes in both small and large sizes. Or, if you are DIY-er, you can create your own hair donut. Simply take an old tube sock and cut off the toe, creating a cylinder shape. Roll the top of the sock down until you reach the end, leaving you with a perfectly round donut.
