Listen up naturalistas! Summertime is the perfect time to explore the world of bold hair color, fly cuts and epically proportioned manes. Need a little inspiration for a new summer ‘do? Start with these 5 fun natural hairstyles.
Faux blowout: Channel your inner Diana Ross with a larger-than-life faux blowout. To get the blown out look without the blow dryer start with stretched out hair, detangle in sections, mist with Avlon KeraCare Oil Sheen With Humidity Block and water, then twist loosely and let dry. Got shorter hair but still want this style? Try adding extensions that match your hair’s blown out texture.
Shaved side hairstyles: Give your natural ‘do some edge with a little shaved action. Fashion the remaining hair into a pompadour, rock big roller set curls or a braid out for a fresh look. If you can’t quite commit to the shaved look, then try small braids or pin the hair up where you’d think about shaving instead.
Modern afro puff: Pull your afro puff to the side or push it to the front for a playful warm weather friendly hairstyle. This modern take on the afro puff works for a day out with the girls or a date night with that special someone.
The twisty updo: Keep your hair off of your neck and out of your face with a twisted updo. I love how the turns and twists on this add up to one funky yet elegant hairstyle.
Bold TWA: A cropped cut with fierce color is a great summer style option for the fearless curly girl. Keep your vivid color in tact for the long haul with paraben-free Brocato Vibracolor Fade Prevent Shampoo and Brocato Vibracolor Fade Prevent Conditioner.
