Bring on the heat! Warmer weather brings the desire for sunny cocktails and beachy waves. However, summer hair doesn’t always turn out the way we want it to. All too often, beachy waves quickly turn into a frizzy mess.
When the heat hits, having a go-to updo is essential to get you and your tresses through the inevitable summer hair struggle. Here are a few of our favorites!
The French Braid Top Knot
There is nothing better than a top knot. They can pull your look together easily and quickly, even on the days that you’re suffering from serious bedhead. Adding a little flair with a french braid kicks it up a notch, and it’s incredibly easy to do.
If you’re braiding the underside of your hair, flip your head over and start your french braid at the nape of your neck. Pull the braid together until you reach the crown of your head. Secure the braid with a clear elastic band. Pull the rest of your hair up into the top knot of your choice!
You can switch this up and braid the front of your hair back to the crown as well!
The Loose Braid Wrapped Ponytail
Summer and ponytails go together like peanut butter and jelly. They’re a warm weather necessity, and this messy ponytail wrapped in a little braid is perfect!
For this one, gather your hair at the nape of your neck, leaving two inch sections in the front on both sides free. Next, you’ll leave some small pieces out in the front, and start to take sections from the hair in the front and pulling them back into the ponytail.
Finally, criss cross the sections of hair around one another on top of the ponytail. Finish by pulling them underneath the ponytail and securing them with a clear elastic.
The Double French Braided Bun
We are all about braids this summer. They’re whimsical and carefree. Pull off a double french braided bun easily by starting with dutch braids, but keep them loose. Secure them both with a clear elastic. Twist them loosely around each other, and then into a bun at the nape of your neck. Keep it all in place with bobby pins.
Any of these quick and adorable summer updos are perfect for work or play, and can be done on clean or unwashed hair. To get your cut and color ready to take on every summer updo, contact Fredrick James Salon today!
