Though most people look forward to the warmth of the summer sun on their skin, some are simply dreading the effect all that humidity will have on their hair. In moments, the heat could destroy the hard work you put into styling your hair if you don’t know how to work with it. Here, at Salon Antoine, we can transform your winter shag into a gorgeous ‘do that will outlast the summer mugginess. Check out what’s in style this season when you consider these unique trends for what’s best for your hair.
Long hair can get a little heavy in the summer, but that doesn’t mean you have to lose it to keep up your spectacular look. Just come on into our salon for a quick trim to freshen the ends without taking too much off. Then, on one of those unbearably warm days, simply pull back your gorgeous mane into the highest ponytail that you can manage. A sleek updo is incredibly modern, and still implements a style that works with all hair types. Whether you have a glossy, straight ponytail, or bombshell curls that tumble down your back, slick back your locks to create an angular line from your cheekbones to the arch in your hairdo, for a streamline look that kills it every time.
True beach waves are hard to accomplish if you don’t have that natural curl in your hair. Instead, try out the freshest trend this year, the flat wave, which is easily accomplished with an ordinary straightener. While a wand creates tight curls that have a harder time surviving the humidity, a flat iron formulates the subtly and effortlessness that you desire for a casual day by the water. Section pieces of your hair into “S” formations and clamp your flat iron through these designs for fluidly chill ripples along your tresses. Make sure to keep the ends of your hair straight to ferment the look and maintain that effortless aesthetic.
Maybe you’re seeking a change that makes a statement wherever you go, or you were dedicated to the 2016 short shag trend. Crop your long locks or grow out that bob-style to a short-to-medium-length shag that matches perfectly with both classic and grungy throwback style. Ready to lead the world into loving their natural locks without shame, the shag is a lovely blend of contemporary aesthetics and vintage class. Those with thin hair can maintain a chin-length crop with straight across bangs, using a flat iron to add some voluminous dynamic with S-shaped waves. If you’ve got frizzy corkscrews spiraling from your head, unleash your wild style and natural volume with lots of layers. Just add leave-in conditioner and some of our smooth Moroccanoil® to lock in that mane.
