Multi Printed Hair Ties
Whether you’re rocking two pigtail braids, one back braid, a braided pony, or just a plain ole’ pony, dress up the sections with colorful hair ties. They’re easy, fun, celebratory, and the perfect picnic accessories with minimal effort required. Free People is a great place to check out for trendy and cute printed hair ties.
Center Part Beach Waves
This classic California look is a homage to those sweet summer nights. Using a texturizing spray (our Root Werk Root Lifter doubles as one) and a good curling wand, achieve this style that is flattering on everyone. According to Southern California hairstylist, Riawna Capri, in this how-to guide for Refinery 29, one of the secrets to perfecting these chic waves is using two different barrel sizes. One of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to give yourself access to multiple curling wand shapes and sizes is our Octowand. This set provides eight interchangeable barrels for all the options of curls a beauty queen may need!
Half Up, Half Down Pull Through Braid
The pull-through braid, whether it’s in fishtail or bubble form, is popping up a lot lately as a jazzed-up version of half up, half down hair. For hair that holds this look, we’d add a little dry shampoo before styling. Our Clean N’ Mean Dry Shampoo Powder hides any oil at the roots and gives you some oomph. After styling the hair, secure even more hold and a little three-day weekend shine with a hairspray like our Hottie Alert Shine Spray. Beauty vlogger Alex Gaboury breaks down the basics of a pull-through braid in half up, half down hair in this tutorial.
You read that right. According to Cosmopolitan, quasi-crimped hair is back in style, but you don’t need to hustle an 80’s style crimper from eBay to get your crimp on. You can achieve the 2019 version of a crimped mane by clamping a straightener like the NuMe Megastar on sections of hair in braids. Be sure to prep your hair with a heat-protecting spray such as our Watch Me Werk Thermal Heat Protectant before using the flat iron.
French Twist with Face Framers
The 90’s are back, and we are living for it. Nothing says, “Oh, I’m just casually preparing some vegetable kabobs for the grill” quite like an easy French twist with some face-framing strands. Before styling, combat any frizz the lingering summer humidity might bring your way with a few pumps of our Gloss Boss Serum applied from mid-lengths to ends of wet or dry hair.
First things first, put your hair up in a bun. Now all you have to do next is tie a bandana around that bun. It’s how Rosie the Riveter probably would’ve rocked her infamous bandana if she were celebrating Labor Day in 2019. Around minute six of this tutorial, YouTuber Dana Marie demonstrates an easy way to tie a bandana around a messy bun.
