Trend Photos: 2012 Summer’s Hottest Hairstyles And Cuts: Textural Top Knots, Beachy Waves And Waterfall Braids
Summer doesn’t officially start until June 20th, but we’ve all been a bit eager already trying out some of the most popular hair trends. From sultry, beachy waves to can’t-be-bothered top knots, BeautyStat was lucky enough to get the lowdown on how to achieve some of this summer’s most popular hair trends from Joico’s expert hair professionals. Summer hair is all about ease and unfussy styling, so read on and find out how to achieve these easy-to-do summer hair looks and emulate the carefree summer beach babe that you are!
For effortless summer waves, simply spray a salty beach spray — like Joico’s Texture Spray (pictured below), which contains seawater to add thick, tousled texture and body to hair — to damp hair and let locks air dry. Then polish off sexy, voluminous waves prior to using a curling iron with Joico’s Humidity Blocker.
This groundbreaking fusion of essential lipids, UVA/UVB filters and antioxidants delivers maximum, long-lasting flexibility. Use a curling iron to create (or enhance) your waves, and finish it all off by running fingers through hair for that loose, free feel. [Check out 3-simple steps for loose, wavy hair!]
Sleek and chic! Balance volume and smoothness by adding a dime size amount of Joico’s JoiWhip, a foam enriched with kukui nut oil adds incredible shine, body and volume. Then blowdry and straighten with a ceramic styler – such as Joico’s K-PAK ReconstrRx VaporIron –and secure into a ponytail with an elastic or hair tie. Secret trick!
Spray a blast of Joico’s JoiShape (pictured above) humidity resistant hairspray on the bristles of a toothbrush to brush down the hairs around your face and avoid flyaways for a look that’s super sleek. [Check out some of the hottest celeb-inspired low-slung and medium-height ponytail how-tos!]
TEXTURAL TOP KNOT
This messy, sultry style is super easy to achieve. First, and most importantly, protect hair with Joico’s K-PAK Protect & Shine Serum prior to going for the messy look. Even if hair is meant to look intentionally messy, you still want your ends to look rich! This shine serum, featuring K-PAK’s Keratin Silicone Complex, protects, polishes and seals the cuticle while helping to prevent split ends and frizziness. Hair is left glossy, healthy and weightless.
Once applied, create a high ponytail and then tease a bit to create that sexy, disheveled look. Twist hair and create a knot, and then tease again to style your top knot. The whole point of this look is to make it seem unfussy and chic… don’t be afraid to pull out a few strands or scrunch it up a bit!
Summer’s hottest braid trend – the fishtail braid is so 2011 – the Waterfall Braid is as lovely as it is carefree. Start with Joico’s Color Therapy Restorative Oil (pictured below) on wet hair before you dry. This will strengthen, protect, and repair hair prior to braiding to ensure gorgeous hair. For the braid, begin with an ordinary 3-strand braid and after 4 weaves, drop one strand.
From there, gather a new strand of hair that pulls the braid in one direction, and repeat numerous times. Finish with Joico’s K-PAK Split End Mender, for ends that are lush and hydrated. This revolutionary product features an exclusive dual-polymer technology that deeply penetrates porous hair ends to create an ultra durable bond and ensures maximum protection and reconstruction from the cortex, locks in moisture, seals the cuticle, and delivers smoothness to the hair.
