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.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, $24
This salt spray creates tousled, messy waves that are low maintenance and so boho chic. The summer is the perfect time to try this sexy look. Spray and scrunch into damp hair and let air dry. Exactly what we want for the summer…simple and easy. And, it feels great to skip the blow dryer all together!
Fun Colored Hair
Sultra Hair Mascara, $24
Looking to change up your look this summer? This Hair Mascara is a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit. It comes in four different electrifying colors like ‘Ultra Pink’ and ‘Royal Velvet’ and it is safe for any hair type and color. Simply run the mascara-like wand through the desired strands of hair and after a few minutes you’ll have colored tresses that last up to two days and washes out after one shampoo.
Fish Tail Braid
A fishtail braid worn to the side is the perfect hair style to bring you from days at the office to nights on the town. It’s easy to do and is super stylish. Accent with a funky hair tie or bow and you are good to go. Watch our how-to video to get this hot look!
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.
Nexxus Frizz Defy Oil Shine Treatment, $14.99
Nexxus makes an amazing oil shine spray that works miracles when fighting the frizzies (smells great too). Infused with Moroccan Oil, this spray gets your hair looking smooth and shiny without leaving any residue. It’s the perfect summer go-to product.
Living Proof Restore Revitalizing Spray with Heat & UV Defense, $26
Use this Revitalizing Spray to help mend your damaged locks. It defends against UV damage and it’s safe for color treated hair. Spray this on before you host your next backyard BBQ and you’ll have protection all day. Love that it’s light weight and it polishes even the driest of hair.
The Golden Globes are nearing, and while some are excited to see which movies and miniseries win, we’re excited to see the celebs, dresses and ‘dos! We talked to Wella Professionals Celebrity Hairstylist Andy LeCompte and Wella Professionals Color Ambassador Aura Friedman about their predictions on what hairstyles will make their way down the red carpet on Sunday night. They’ve had the pleasure of working with Golden Globe stars, including Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez, Fergie and Megan Fox.
Daily Makeover will host a big giveaway with some of Wella’s amazing styling products that were used to create red carpet hairstyles! To find out the details, “Like” the Wella Professionals USA Facebook page where we’ll announce how and when to enter the contest. Plus, they’ll have LIVE red carpet coverage from top celebrity stylists.
Effortless Elegance With A Glossy Finish
“I think we’ll see a peak in fluid textures that suggest effortless elegance, like very healthy and sleek hair that shows a lot of movement. This style will be popular with soft and light tones with a warm glow that emphasizes healthy, shiny hair representative of the Wella Trend Vision look aptly named, Grace,” says LeCompte. Another great example: Charlize Theron’s shiny, sleek blowout with gentle waves.
To get the look, first, apply a good amount of hair primer, like Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier, to wet hair. This will create an even surface on each hair follicle, improving the evenness of your overall end look. Then, while your hair is still wet, apply a smoothing balm, such as Wella Professionals Flowing Form, to dramatically enhance the manageability and smoothness of your blowout. One you’ve finished blow drying your hair, finish with a spritz of shine spray. Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight helps keep hair healthy and shimmering, despite the heat of a blowout.
Statement-Making Tones And Daring Definition
To the contrary, we can also expect to see daring, modern styles made possible by the evolution of high tech hair tools and high pigment color. Wella Professionals Color Ambassador Aura Friedman says, “We can look forward to the soft introduction of this very bold hair color trend at the Golden Globes this year. Inspired by the Trend Vision look, “Roxy,” this is an attention grabbing style where color plays an integral role. We will especially see a shift to cool red tones and bursts of violet, statement-making colors with an edge of sophistication.”
“A perfect color,” says Aura, “should complement the person who’s wearing it…but also suit their personality and lifestyle. It should enhance, but not overpower.” To keep vibrant hues looking their best, Aura suggests to avoid shampooing too much and use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, like Wella’s Brilliance Line. If your hair is very dull, she also recommends getting a clear gloss to add instant vibrancy and seal the cuticle of your hair for added shine. As for the style, this look does not shy away from shape or definition. Tight curls and gravity-defying shapes can be expected. With such “atypical” styles being created with styling tools, it’s very important to prepare your hair with a heat protectant spray before styling, such as Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protectant Spray. You’ll need to finish the look with a strong-hold hairspray, such as Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray.
