Summertime Styles are Loose and Tousled
Want to keep on trend this season and still have your summer fun? Beach bag products are simple and fast and keep you looking great. Check out the tips below to do your hair on the fly.
For girls, hair is loose and tousled but not frizzy. Try a leave in conditioner or smoothing cream such as Catwalk Leave in Conditioner by TIGI. Remember to add a generous amount of product to enhance natural styling. Apply in the first five minutes after any water play.
Boys are wearing hair longer on top and shaved short on the sides. This look is super low-maintenance and easy to style with a small amount of styling cream. Try Up Front Gel Pomade by Bed Head. It controls and shines and keeps that long hair off of the face.
Ask your hairstylist for ideas on using a single product for beachy summer looks that don’t require a mirror or a blow dryer. Enjoy the outdoors and stay fashionable!
Day-old braids can look slept on.
A deconstructed braid is popular this year with runway collections showing us the how-to.
Mara Hoffman’s southwestern appeal for Spring 2015 showcases a thick, wispy, I-did-my-hair-two-days-ago braid and has her audience quickly following the trend.
To do a day-old braid, dry hair without a brush using only fingers for combing. Spray in dry shampoo for matte texture and hold.
Create a braid using traditional three, four or five strand techniques and mix the braids along the way so they give a more unique and carefree mirage.
Gently deconstruct the braid with fingers by prying open and pulling at areas along the braid shaft. Finish by loosening strands around the face for framing.
A messy braid that is clean and fresh?! High five to TIGI designer Nick Irwin for this look. Now we can do our braids and sleep on them too.

Dry shampoos ‘create massive lift at the roots, helping hair look and feel fuller and giving it more texture making it easier to style and secure up-dos.’- TIGI
If you have an oily scalp, a dry shampoo is a great option for you. This fresh-smelling powder actually suspends oil from the hair into airy fluff. It comes in mini sizes for your purse or overnight bag and also large sizes for your bathroom supply.
To apply dry shampoo, take thin sections on dry, day old hair and spray along the root line. Continue to do this section by section. Scrub your scalp with the pads of your fingers and brush through, if desired. Super easy and smells good!
Dry shampoo is also great for refreshing and creating big hairstyles. It is a stylist’s secret on the runway and in photo shoots. Lift hair from the ends and lightly spray dry shampoo throughout hairstyle. Tousle, as desired, or shape into an updo.
This product is so easy to use and delivers great results. Enjoy!
