Limp locks? Check. Frizz? Double-check. Hot and humid days mean that our usual hairdos might not look so great. The solution? Summer haircuts and updos. Stay cool during the hot weather with these easy summer haircuts!
Summer Haircuts for Short Hair
Transform your bob for summer by slicking it back. This red carpet-worthy style can easily be achieved at home.
Start by washing hair with Toppik Hair Building Shampoo and Toppik Hair Building Conditioner. Blow dry hair backwards towards your crown, using a round brush to add volume at the root. Next, use a flat iron to straighten any frizz and slightly flip the ends outwards. Then finish the look with a mist of Toppik FiberHold Spray for longer-lasting results.
Let 2019 be the year of the big chop! If you’re looking for a big change, try a platinum blonde pixie cut.
To keep your shade from becoming too brassy, use a purple toning shampoo weekly to maintain your platinum blonde. Then use hair wax to style this summer hairstyle on a day-to-day basis.
Short hair is typically more flattering for thin hair types. But if your pixie summer haircut shows off any sparse areas, simply mix Toppik Hair Building Fibers in white and blonde. Then apply the mixture to hair to fill in any areas of thinness.
Summer Haircuts & Hairstyles for Medium Hair
This cute summer hairstyle for medium hair couldn’t be easier to pull off! Start by sectioning your hair at the ears. Next pull up into a half ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Wrap a small piece of hair around the ponytail and pin to conceal the hair tie. Then loosely wave the remaining hair with a curling iron.
If pulling your hair up reveals thin areas around the hairline, don’t worry! Just spritz Toppik Hair Fibers for instantly thicker-looking hair.
Got frizz? Layers are more prone to frizz and flyaways. But since the blunt lob has no layers whatsoever, this summer haircut is perfect for reducing summertime frizz.
Ask your hairstylist for a blunt lob that falls somewhere between your shoulders and your collarbones. Plan to get trims every 4 to 6 weeks to keep this haircut neat and precise.
How you style this summer haircut depends on your hair texture. For straight hair, apply a thickening serum like Toppik Hair Fattener Advanced Thickening Serum. Blow dry to smooth, then use a texturizing spray at the ends to create movement.
For wavy or curly hair, apply a bit of mousse to damp hair. Then dry hair with a diffuser to embrace your natural hair texture.
Summer Haircuts & Hairstyles for Long Hair
Want to freshen up your long hair for summer? Consider a long shag. This summer haircut utilizes lots of layers to bring out your natural hair texture and movement.
Ask your hairstylist for light, soft layers around the crown with long, tousled bangs. To style at home, apply a texturizing salt spray on damp hair. Then blow dry hair with a diffuser or allow to air dry. Don’t worry about it looking too perfect. This summer haircut is all about being effortlessly cool.
Dress up your everyday ponytail with this fresh take on an easy summer hairstyle.
First, brush hair up and fasten with a hair tie at the crown. Hint: if you have any bumps in your hair, use the long end of a rat tail comb to smooth them.
Next, separate your ponytail into two sections. Twist both sections in the same direction, then twist the sections together in the opposite direction.
Using the Toppik Spray Applicator attachment, spray Toppik Hair Fibers in your root color along your hairline. This will create the illusion of thicker, fuller looking hair. Finish with Toppik FiberHold Spray, which will increase the magnetic hold between fibers and hair plus give your hair a healthy shine.
