With summer nearing its end some women may find themselves reminiscing on all the events (birthday bashes, wedding showers), milestones (graduation, job promotions), and changes (moving into a new house, making new friends) that have taken place this past season. Isn’t it funny how all these events happen and we don’t even notice all the change that’s taken place in our lives until we look back and notice just how different things are? Life changes are one thing, but hair changes are another. It’s known that even small changes to one’s hairdo can make a major difference. If you feel like your hair needs a bit of a summer update to coincide with the rest of your life, look no further. Below are the hottest cuts, colors, and styles of the summer, lucky for you there’s still enough time left in the season for you to pull ‘em off!
One of the season’s hottest trends is the bob; whether you’re into a lob or a classic bob you’re sure to turn heads with this look. This style is perfect for those who feel like they are constantly flipping, tossing, and touching their hair – feel like you’re throwing your hair into a bun before you’ve even made it to your morning meeting? This style is ideal for you as well. Not only does it get the hair off of your neck, shoulders, and back, but it also provides allows for a bit of cool relief around your upper body as you battle through the dog days of summer.
If you’re one of those who jokes about being “cold blooded” chances are you love the summer and all the heat it brings. Maybe wearing your hair down has become a mere habit simply to keep your ears, neck, and cheeks warm in the winter. If this sounds familiar, a bob might not be the small change you’re looking for, however, long layers might tickle your fancy. Rather than having your ends lay in a straight blunt line, have your stylist create long, yet soft layers. This sexy style gives hair some extra volume and texture which is perfect for all your favorite updos and downdos.
Baby bangs are the bomb this summer. It may seem strange that we’re proposing bangs immediately after suggesting a bob, but give the idea a chance. Baby bangs are only about half as long as regular bangs, so they do require some extra maintenance, but it’s nothing too major. They’re best for those who have large foreheads (a.k.a. all the five-head beauties out there), otherwise, they look a tad bit awkward. Although, if you have the space and are looking for a small change for summer, baby bangs are a perfect choice.
