If you spent the first half of the year maintaining your long red locks and are searching for styling solutions for the summer months, look no further. When the weather gets warmer, we can be tempted to chop our hair to a shorter, more weather-accommodating length. For those wanting to keep their hair long this summer, here are five styles to keep you looking and feeling gorgeous:
1. Clip Art
Fabulous news for fans of the 90s. Claw hair clips are back in the strongest way since Ginger Spice was crooning every afternoon on TRL. Spice up your life with one of this year’s easiest and most affordable trends to embrace. Twist your fiery red locks into a variety of simple styles that will take you from a casual day at the pool to dinner on the town in the evening. There’s a beautiful design for every occasion or style preference.
2. Half Up/Half Down Pony
Continuing with style inspiration from the 90s, the half-up-half-down ponytail is here for you, dear redhead. They a sleek, deliberately styled half up, half down high pony. It is a fantastic option for a summer wedding or special event or for your everyday hair routine.
3. The Messy Bun
The messy bun is a modern classic and nothing new for most of us casually cool redheads. But with luxury brands like Chanel sending their models on the runway in a staple summer hair coif, the style has been officially given the seal of approval by the fashion industry. Take a few extra steps to really secure your bun with redhead bobby pins and try special touches like a braid or barrette to give it a more unique look.
4. Braid to Order
Braiding your hair is a wonderful solution to keep your beautiful red hair off your face, particularly while physically engaged in exercise or water activities. There’s a braid for everyone from entry-level to advanced. Best of all? When the sun goes down and you’re ready to switch up your location and vibe, undoing your braids will leave your hair with the most stunning waves and natural-looking texture.
5. Wrap It Up
A summer turban is one of the chicest ways to beat the heat while expressing sense of style with a variety of prints and materials. Protect your lustrous locks from pollution, debris and that pesky humidity. Bonus? A headwrap can double in the colder months as a textile accent on your favorite handbag. And don’t be afraid to wear a red turban with red hair!
