Summer is on its way and it’s time to get your hair summer ready.
But what does that mean? When you think about summertime, do you see bright sunny days, pool parties and beach trips? Or does your mind wander to those humid days when your hair just doesn’t want to behave?
Well, if you want to make sure that your hair is ready for all the summer fun ahead of you, then read on! Here are some of our top tips for getting your hair ready for the warmer weather.
What’s the Best Hair Color for Summer?
When it comes to choosing a color for your hair this summer, there are a few things you need to consider. First off, no matter what color you go for, keep in mind that it will fade faster than usual due to sun exposure. So if you plan on spending lots of time outside during the hot months ahead, opt for a more subtle shade rather than something too bright or bold.
If you're looking to add some color to your locks this summer, there are plenty of options available — from subtle highlights to bold streaks — but it's important to choose something that will complement your skin tone and eye color. If you're going for a more subtle look, ask your stylist to suggest the right shade of blonde or brunette for you. If you want something more dramatic, stick with a cool-toned color like ash blonde or icy blue-black. And whatever color you choose, make sure it complements your skin tone (light hair colors will look great on olive complexions; dark colors will suit pinkish complexions).
You can also use temporary dye with ammonia-free ingredients like Clairol Nice ‘n Easy Root Touch-Up Kit in Light Warm Brown or Garnier Olia Oil Powered Permanent Hair Color in 8.0 Medium Brown.
A trim and shape can help give your hair some much-needed volume during the hot summer months. You don't have to cut off all your length though — just opt for an inch or two off the ends so that it feels lighter when it's hot outside — and then add some layers so that it bounces around when you walk.
